About Mike Ellis

Mike has been a Disney fan since his first trip to the Magic Kingdom in 1979 when he was 11 years old. Since that first trip, he has seen parks open, lands close, and attractions come and go, but one thing remains the same, his love for Disney is as strong as ever.

His Disney adventures caused him to start My Dreams of Disney because he wanted to document for his family and friends all of the special Disney Memories he has enjoyed with his family, and since that first post in 2010, Mike's hobby has become his passion!

Now a Travel Consultant with Pixie Vacations for over nine years, Mike has helped many of his readers plan and have incredible Disney vacations of their own. Check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

    There’s nothing that I enjoy more than wind in my hair and the sights and sounds of the Peoplemover. And let me tell you, as someone who worked in tomorrowland, “romance” getting carried away on the Peoplemover may happen more often than you think. ?

    I love the Peoplemover! It’s definitely on my list of favorite attractions at the Magic Kingdom (and it helps that it sits right across from my very favorite – the Carousel of Progress!) When Brian and I were there a few weeks ago, right after our cruise, the park was amazingly packed for that time of year. I thought sure we could get on the Peoplemover, but even it had a LONG line! Craziness!

    I have to tell you . . . as I was reading that paragraph about the track system, I was thinking of how Charlie Brown hears his teacher. Yep, I kinda glazed over. Too technical for me. I don’t know how it works, but I know it’s awesome!

    I LOVE the Peoplemover! It’s a great way to relax for a bit since Magic Kingdom can be a bit overwhelming. I didn’t realize it had such a sophisticated system to keep it moving. Thanks for sharing!

    I enjoy this ride, too. It’s a great respite from the park. We’ve watched the fireworks from it as well. Of course, you only catch glimpses when outside, but if you don’t care about seeing the whole show, it’s a great time for what will always be for me the WedWay Peoplemover.

    Our kids actually ask to go on this ride. It is also a ride we have taken when the kids were little when they needed a nap. Love that if there is no line you just let the Cast Member know and you can ride it the entire length of a nap.

      I’ve had one Cast Member tell me to get off and that I couldn’t ride again even though it was empty and there was no line. Must have been new!

      Next time I’ll fake being asleep! LOL Thanks for commenting!

    I loved the people mover at Disneyland! I wish we still had it, but I’m happy that it still exists at WDW! Hoping that my friend and I will get a chance to ride it in a few weeks and take advantage of that short line! No “romance” happening in our vehicle, but after a long day, I can’t say that we won’t be napping!
    Also, I always feel like I have to get my sea legs when I step onto a moving platform…am I the only one?
    Great post! Thanks for taking us on a gentle ride through Tomorrowland!
