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 agree that those two acts shouldn’t be removed. To me the Fife and Drum Corps. are a little piece of history that I love to see when I’m at Epcot ( which is about once a month) It fits with the time period theming of the American Pavilion and it would seem there are no plans to replace it with anything else :/. Off Kilter is a great act and the viewing area is always packed. They have a large selection of music so it’s not like its the same show every time.

      Thanks for the comment, Kelli! Of course I agree with you — but I sincerely hope that they do bring something in that is at least comparable to what they have now. *FingersCrossed*

      Have a great weekend and holiday!

    I am extremely upset that Disney is ending The Spirit Of America Fife and Drum Corps! That has always been one of our favorite things about going to EPCOT. I think Disney is making a huge mistake. I don’t know what they’re trying to do. We also got caught in the rain one time and got to hear them play inside the restaurant. It was wonderful! I worry that Disney’s decision to end this beautiful tradition is politically motivated. This is so wrong!!
