A couple in California, who are determined to visit Disneyland every day in 2012, said they passed the halfway mark Sunday.

The Orange County Register reported that 45-year-old Tonya Mickesh, and 39-year-old Jeff Reitz were greeted with huge smiles form Disneyland cast members on their 183rd straight visit this year.

"Cast members are getting to know us and they ask, 'What day is it today -- number what?'" Reitz told the newspaper.

The couple said they decided to embark on their Disney mission on New Year's Day, and became Premium annual passholders in order to take full advantage of the 366 days of the leap year.

According to the Register, the couple met while scuba diving in 2006, and found they shared a love of Disneyland.

As for any daily routines they go through at the park, Reitz said they always park at the Mickey and Friends parking structure, keeping the day's parking ticket, and then start to walk around beginning with Frontierland, and occasionally go on rides.

"We've been keeping an eye on several of the baby ducklings," Reitz said.

According the newspaper, the Disneyland duo's daily adventure has also granted them the opportunity to take part in the 24-hour "One More Disney Day" on Feb. 29, and they were near the front of the line when Cars Land opened June 15 at Disney California Adventure.
