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.

    You’re right. Even though we haven’t ridden this in a long time, it’s such a great attraction. Thanks for reminding me about it!

    We go on this every few visits. I actually kinda enjoy it, though I don’t necessarily agree with the science behind the whole thing. I love the dinosaurs and Ellen . . . well, she just makes anything funny! I have heard rumor, though, that this pavilion may be getting a Marvel makeover – nobody seems to know if this is fact or fiction.

    Gosh, we haven’t done this attraction in YEARS. In fact, I’m not sure my children ever have! I do know that it’s worthwhile, it’s just so very long to carve out with three little ones. They are probably old enough to work it in our schedule without having to worry about naps, etc next time!

    We rode it on our last trip for the first time in a loooong time. Next time you ride look to your left as you enter the first room of dinosaurs. I am convinced there are a couple that look like Jar Jar Binks.
