 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!

I see Jeff in the parks time to time and really enjoys the parks like all of us. - BaseballMickey  8033.2 #12 10:23AM
oh neat! I'm wondering how close they live to the park. I'd love to go everyday! - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 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  8033.2 #12 1:38PM
πŸ˜πŸ‘ so blessed!  - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 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  2034.3 #86 10:28AM
88 times since June for me and I've only gone without you twice in that time. - BeatleMike  635.6 #341 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  6592.2 #19 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  2034.3 #86 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  8033.2 #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  6592.2 #19 5:58PM
I should be at 171 for the year counting tonight. - DLKenCA  2941.3 #51 10:32AM
That's SWEET! Hope you have an awesome night! Please post lots of photos for us!  - Duchess_SMK  6592.2 #19 12:02PM
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  2115.6 #81 11:01AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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  643.7 #335 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7586 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #521 7:32AM
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  183.5 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1024 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8058.8 #11 1:41PM

I use this every time I'm at the parks now and llove it!!!!  Thanks Admin - leopardditz2000  1157.2 #169 7:44PM
I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1024 7:03PM
