LOS ANGELES (Agence France-Presse) - As one of the world's largest entertainment companies, Disney is used to adoring fans but one man has topped them all, visiting its California theme park 2,000 days in a row.

Mr Jeff Reitz marked the milestone on Thursday (June 22), using his Disneyland Resort annual pass which had enabled his trek to the park on a daily basis since Jan 1, 2012.

"What we mostly know about him is that he loves Disneyland," said theme park spokesman John McClintock. 

"When I asked him what he likes about the park, he said he likes all the shows and all the attractions but he did mention that he really likes to listen to the music in the park," he added. "I guess he finds it relaxing."

The spokesman said Disney has yet to come across someone as enamoured with the theme park as Mr Reitz, an Air Force veteran in his 40s who usually shows up after work and spends a few hours in the park.

"His girlfriend frequently comes with him but not every day," he said. "That would be true love, wouldn't it?"
