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.

    I’m not a guy, and I could take the Tomorrowland Speedway or leave it, but I 100% agree with the rest of this post! So, I guess I’m rather obsessed with Disney transportation also! Especially the monorail. And the people mover. And the WDW Railroad.

      We guys can share our transportation obsession with you gals… if we have to… I guess. Disney Nouns is an equal opportunity obsessor!

    I love Disney Transportation! I had the amazing opportunity to have breakfast with Bob Gurr a couple of years ago and enjoyed discussing some of his designs with him.

    I love Disney transportation too! Especially the monorails. Sometimes I just get on the monorail and ride the full loop just for fun. There’s also one more Disney form of transportation-The Magical Express or the Tragic Express depending on whether you are heading back to the airport or not!

I'm Mary and my blog is I am also the wife of a Disney Travel Agent, a mom to 2 boys, a full-time career mom, a budding graphic designer on the side. In the little free time that is left I love to learn about photography. We currently live in Houston, TX and own Disney Vacation Club.

    My son is right there with you. He does not care about any ride in the parks except for the transportation options. From tram to train to monorail. Oh, he does consider the Peoplemover a train.

    The Disney forms of transportation are almost as good as the attractions themselves. Many times, we have jumped on a monorail just for the ride, not as a means to get from point A to point B. The same with the boats, too.
