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 eight years, Mike has helped many of his readers plan and have incredible Disney vacations of their own. Check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. mm57me – Cape Elizabeth, Maine – The Mature Mouse™ is an original blog written by David Brassard, a teacher living in Maine. This blog was created to give a voice to older, more mature, Disney fans. We do exist and we realize the joy in spending time at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

    Although I agree with 4 of your ‘wet blankets’, I have a little problem with number 2. Crowds can dampen your vacation, and avoiding them is a good strategy, but sometimes you are not able to choose one of the very few non-peak times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. As a teacher, just about every window of opportunity I have to travel to WDW is crowded. When I’m in the parks with a herd of people I just focus on my surroundings, and take a leisurely approach to touring. Let the lemmings rush, run, dash, and hyperventilate, I’ll just breathe deep and meander around the hoards.

      I’ve had to visit at peak times too and found it necessary to take more breaks to avoid a meltdown. Sounds like your positive attitude is working to keep your blanket dry… so to speak!
