Disneyland devotee visits park for 2000 days in a row

About five and half years later, Disneyland welcomed him for the 2,000th consecutive day.

The Huntington Beach resident made a plan on New Year's Day 2012: Visit Disneyland every day for an entire year.

A Disney spokesperson said that he doesn't think there has been anyone else who can match Reitz streak.

The Air Force verteran began going to Disneyland in 2012 when he and an ex-girlfriend were unemployed and needed something to do to keep their spirits up.

Reitz calls it a treat to go the park every day. Because of his day job, he usually visits the theme park in the evenings. "I love going there for the pasta and the soft drinks".

Count up the days and it turns out Reitz has now visited Disneyland for 2,000 consecutive days.

"It was something to do to keep things fun".

"I have memories of riding it with my mom and holding onto my blankie", he said.

But "there's nothing I would turn away from", he said. This month, he's visiting during the Summer of Heroes, a celebration highlighted by superhero encounters and the new Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction in Disney California Adventure. I'm loving that one.

Along the way he's met many celebrities, and tried the food at almost every restaurant saying, "Pizza Port is my go to place".

He said: "I love walking around taking pictures, talking with cast members and guests". That's when his current annual pass expires.
