If Disneyland really is the happiest place on Earth, as it claims, then truly few people could possibly be happier than Jeff Reitz. On Thursday, the Air Force veteran made his 2,000 daily visit to the theme park—in a row, according to a press release. The impressive streak started on Jan. 1, 2012 after a friend gave Reitz a season pass to lift his spirits during a job hunt, Consumerist reports. Since then, Reitz has gotten a job and still not missed a day at Disneyland. "It’s magical," Reitz tells KABC. "I never expected that it would turn into this much when I started coming."
Reitz, who lives in Huntington Beach, says his daily trips to Disneyland give him something to look forward to every day. He says he enjoys the cast members, attractions, and music. “Even doing like Walt, and sitting down and people watching–just enjoying the atmosphere,” he tells KTLA. Reitz says he plans to continue visiting Disneyland every day. “I’m still having fun with it. That’s the only reason I’m still doing this,” he says. “It wasn’t about going for records or anything like that. That’s been a bonus.” (17 people got pooped on at Disneyland.)
