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 love that you do your Disney planning in January, Mike! What a great way to beat the winter blahs!

    Thanks for sharing your pictures from your January trip – it was fun to see those precious memories you and Cindy made together. Do you call this “Sophie’s first trip to Disney”?

    We actually LOVE going to Disney in January – even the cold at Disney is warmer than the cold here in PA!

      Thanks Heidi! I don’t consider that Sophie’s first trip, because she couldn’t eat a jumbo turkey leg! :)

      I am certain you are right about the difference in cold, but it was still too cold for our liking!

      Thanks for commenting!

    It sounds like it was a fun trip! And I can’t believe how much Donald has changed. :)
