Imagine visiting Disneyland 2,000 days in a row! If this is something that would thrill you, then Jeff Reitz ought to be your idol. Reitz, a 44-year-old California resident, has visited the park every day for nearly six years, according to an article by The Associated Press.

And while Reitz might be the ultimate Disney super fan, he’s certainly not the only Disney fanatic out there! Disneyland and Disney World may be geared toward children, but is it possible adults love the theme parks even more?

In 2015, did an investigative report to get to the bottom of what’s driving the obsessive behavior some adults display when it comes to Disney. They talked to more than 100 adult Disney fans, and three-quarters said Disney was their ideal vacation. And if you think most adult Disney fans are so nuts over Mickey because it makes their kids happy … think again! PopSugar’s survey found that 80 percent of the adult Disney fans surveyed don’t even have kids.

And if you’re still not understanding why some are so fanatical over Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, or Hollywood Studios, maybe the reasons given by a website devoted to all things Disney will convince you.

So are you a Disney super fan? Or are you still trying to figure out what all the fuss is about?
