TwinkleBoss:  We plan to take about 2 weeks, maybe a little more. 

As someone who has been to Disney multiple times, you do not have to do everything in one trip. You may burn yourself out.

Most emplyers will not deny you the time as long as you have a good work record.

We are doing 8 days, 7 nights. Depending on the location we decided it could be longer. Wow, I would love to do 2-3 weeks. Anything longer than that I’m ready to come home, unless we are traveling to different places.

TwinkleBoss:  We did 6 full days in Orlando.   We did Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure with a day of rest in between.   We couldn’t swing a long 10 day honeymoon but we’re hoping to be able to go back in September and do 10 days so we can see Epcot and MK again!!!

  • Wedding: October 2014

We’re going on ours on Sunday, and will be at the resort for 7 nights.

So, we fly out Sunday morning and come back the following Sunday. Darling Husband was hoping it could be a shorter amount of time away, but it was easier to just do the full week for the flights and prices.

I am using 5 vacation days, and 1 holiday. I get 15 vacation days and 10 holiday days off a year.

I am so jealous of everyone taking such long trips!!! We were off 10 days total, went down to Florida 2 days before the wedding, got married that Saturday, and then left on Sunday for our 7-day honeymoon cruise. It was AMAZINGGG but definitely wish it was longer!! 🙂

We got married August 31st last year. A week later we went on our week-long honeymoon to PR from NC. Neither one of us had jobs to rush back to since we are both new college graduates but honestly we were ready to come home a day or two before that. Don’t get me wrong, the weather was beautiful, the beaches lovely, and we had a nice time going somewhere new together, but we just couldn’t wait to get back home, to sleep in our own bed, start making dinners together, and watch our favorite TV shows, sounds kind of lame, but we are simple people.

I’ve been to Orlando so many times with my family and with my husband and it’s always a super great time. Probably one of my top favorite vacation destinations. We stay at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort which is amazing. If you’ve never been there’s so much fun stuff to do so I’m sure you could make two weeks worthwhile, but be ready to spend lots of money. If you guys are the type of people to vacation frequently then one week would probably be enough, but if you guys never take days off of work then you really do deserve a good, long honeymoon, because life can always get in the way later down the road. Good luck and have fun!

TwinkleBoss:  When we were married at the beginning of 2015, my husband and I had already had about 2 weeks off work (over Christmas and New Year). We’re each taking an extra 2 weeks off before Easter for our honeymoon.

I get 6 weeks of paid holiday each year and my husband get 5 weeks. We’re both expected to use it up every year, and so despite taking more time off around Christmas and during the beginning of the spring, I still have one more day to take between now and the end of April.

TwinkleBoss:  We took 3 weeks and went to Hawaii and did 3 islands, a week on each. It was a really nice way of capping off an extremely stressful year of planning (we come from big families so there was a lot to plan and prep for!). I think it depends on what you can and cannot do though. My husband and I take a 2-3 week trip almost every year so we knew we could do it with our vacation days. I would say though that if you are doing 2 weeks in California, you should definitely explore the state with that amount of time! You could do and see so much and there is so much beauty in California.

  • Wedding: November 2014

TwinkleBoss:  We went for 11 days including 2 weekends (Took 8 days off work total). I have 15 days of Annual Leave I’m entitled to every year so that was half. We were married in November and I took 4 days for that as well. I should note that I have unused leave from previous years still as well.
