For real though, who wouldn’t want to go to Disneyland every day? And that’s exactly what Reitz, a Disney superfan did for the past 8 years.
On March 13, Disney announced that it’s temporarily closing Disneyland to prevent coronavirus spread. This was also Jeff Reitz’s 2,995th consecutive day at the theme park, and sadly, also the last day of his streak.
Reitz was planning to seek a Guinness World Record for his consecutive visits to Disneyland. He said the longest streak he’s heard of ended after only one or two years.
Reitz said he still plans to visit the park sometime when it reopens, but he decided to not continue his streak.
“On the negative side, I didn’t get to choose the end,” Reitz, 47, told the OC Register, “but on the positive side, I didn’t have to choose the end.”
Visiting Disneyland right after work every day for usually more than 3 hours has been like a part-time job as well as a good work out for Reitz.
Although his streak fell short of 3,000 days, it’s still a remarkable record nevertheless.
Now that he’s not going on his daily trips, he’s planning to binge-watch movies on Disney+ and do some research on genealogy.
