 Best Post of the Day 12-31-13
Good morning and happy New Years Eve! This day in Disney history December 31st; Disneyland welcomes it’s 10th millionth guest, a new year’s Eve party is held for the first time in Disneyland and a couple makes history for visiting the park everyday for an entire year!

1957: 5 year old Leigh Woolfenden, of Phoenix Arizona, becomes Disneylands 10th millionth guest! I searched for a photo but to no avail. Still a pretty neat milestone for Disneyland, having only been open less then 2.5 years!


Also in 1957, Disneyland host it’s very first New Years Eve Party! 7,500 guests attend the event! Today the annual celebration is one of the most popular events at Disneyland!

Have YOU been to a NYE party at the parks? What was your experience?

happy new year

A look back at New Year’s Eve celebrations from various decades at Disneyland:
 
In addition, on this day in 2012: Jeff Reitz and Tonya Mickesh received a special welcome from Walt Disney Parks and resorts Chairman Tom Staggs. The couple are awarded a gift basket,  certificates proclaiming them honorary citizens of Disneyland and a stay in the Disneyland Dream Suite! Jeff and Tonya visited Disneyland everyday in 2012! 366 trips including One More Disney Day (leap year celebration).
Jeff Reitz and Tonya Mickesh don’t have any children but decided to visit the parks daily as a way to pass the time while they searched for work.

basket

"It was a way to keep ourselves occupied because we didn’t have jobs,’ Mickesh told the Orange County Register. ‘Originally, we thought we’d get jobs and stop doing it, but we kept it going."

Most days, the couple had a set routine to their visits. They would arrive early in the morning to beat the crowds and park in the Mickey & Friends car park.” (who calls it that? ::giggles::)

Highlights for the couple over the year included spending 24 hours in the park for the 24-hour Leap Day and watching the baby ducks in the park grow up. They also made friendship with the park staff and became known as the ‘everyday Disneyland couple.'

Mickesh’s favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean, while for Reitz it’s the Matterhorn.
As well as enjoying the attractions, the daily trips also provided the couple with plenty of exercise and using a pedometer they figured out that they walked between two and four miles per visit.

Jeff Reitz, right, and Tonya Mickesh hold all their parking stubs for visiting Disneyland every day in 2012

stubs


How many visits did you rack up this year? I know some of you around here are lucky enough to live rather close to the parks. Thanks so much for sharing your photos with those of us that aren’t able to visit as often! It means SO much!

Thanks for reading and watching! I hope that each and everyone of you has a safe wonderful evening! Wishing you and yours a blessed 2014!

oh neat! I'm wondering how close they live to the park. I'd love to go everyday! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 10:53AM
And to answer your question, I probably went to the parks about 250-300 times this year working and about 50 times playing. - BaseballMickey_CM  6493.2 #12 1:38PM
πŸ˜πŸ‘ so blessed!  - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 5:55PM
I have seen the man in the parks a couple of times. It's my understanding that last I heard they were going onto two years straight visiting daily but that may have changed. As for how many visits this year? It's something like 80 though I haven't checked so I really am not sure lol. Happy new year everyone! - missmimi90  1596.4 #87 10:28AM
88 times since June for me and I've only gone without you twice in that time. - BeatleMike  565.5 #315 11:51AM
😳 2 years straight?! Really? Can anyone confirm? That's amazing! Happy new year! I had to check, disneys annual pass holders section on the website says 217 for me. But I'm not quite sure if that starts over with each renewal or not? Anyone know? - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 12:01PM
Duchess_SMK apparently he has a twitter page and he's been tracking each day. His tweet today: Wow, hard to believe that today I will enter the gates of @DisneylandTodayfor my 731st consecutive day.#Disney366 - missmimi90  1596.4 #87 12:45PM
Yes, its been 2 years straight. I asked him one time about "what is considered a visit?" He said it could be a whole day or just an hour or so getting dessert or watching a band's set. - BaseballMickey_CM  6493.2 #12 1:39PM
Thanks for the info guys! I Tale it he's not with his gal pal anymore? Or maybe it's just that she's not on the same mission. πŸ˜‚ I'm LOL at Beatlemike!  - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 5:58PM
I should be at 171 for the year counting tonight. - DLKenCA  1856.5 #72 10:32AM

Not sure how many visits but I average about 2-3x week not counting busy weeks. Tonight will be my first NYE at the parks (though well be at the grand). And I totally remember this couple!!!! How awesome!! Thanks Duchess and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  - missariel33  1683.7 #81 11:01AM

Did you see the photos yesterday, they have the canal ride  frozen land where old mill was. - secretagentangel  1324.6 #104 2:39PM

Some may not agree, but I don't think it's that bad. I would be bummed to miss some attractions if it was my one trip of the year, but the crowds are low and the missing attractions will be better than ever in a few months.  - chrismis21  492.6 #383 2:46PM
Me too @Missmolly! - ShariRenee  5019.9 #17 5:50PM
I hope they're changing the matterhorn bobsled seats.  Went once after the last refurbishment and NEVER again.  I literally bruised my tailbone. Everyone had back pain for the rest of the day.   - fancyshmancy1999  5.1 #16202 1:04AM

I was excited for this until reading a little more and for the dinning packages I think they aren't making this affordable for the average person. Also, I hate world of color cause you have to stand so if you get a fast pass through the machines I hope you don't have to stand - Disneyprincessvmk  46.9 #4529 11:36PM

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  352.8 #599 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6796 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  114.3 #3190 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  216.9 #1669 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  356.7 #586 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1258.5 #110 8:23PM
