It was New Year’s Day, January 1, 2012, when Jeff Reitz, of Huntington Beach, California, began his special Disneyland Resort adventure: a plan to visit the parks every day for a year.
He never stopped.
On Thursday, June 22, Jeff visited for the 2000th consecutive day, a super heroic feat in the midst, appropriately enough, of the Summer of Heroes at the Disneyland Resort.
Reitz, a U.S. Air Force veteran who works for the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System in Long Beach, California (on work days, he makes his visits in the evening), credits the parks with recharging him after a hard day.
He says he enjoys the music, the friendly park cast members and watching park guests having a good time. His favorite attraction is Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland park, and he’s experienced the new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction at Disney California Adventure park more than a dozen times already.
He’s also looking forward to the return of “Fantasmic!” on July 17 along the Rivers of America in Disneyland park.
Reitz adds that Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park are always fun, and he’s going to continue treating himself to daily park visits for as long as he can.
If you were visiting Disneyland Resort for the 2000th time, where would you head first?
