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 feel so much better knowing that I’m not the only person who has never seen Fantasmic! I want to see it badly, I’ve just never been in the park at the time of the show. Maybe one day….

      You know, Stephanie, the biggest problem that I see with Fantasmic is that you either a) have to wait a really long time and waste a lot of time waiting to sit, or b) purchase a meal so that you can get priority seating for the show. I’m going to write a post about why we don’t do Fantasmic, I hope you will enjoy it. Thanks for commenting!

        That’s kind of the problem we face. We usually try to visit during low crowd times of the year, so by the time we finish touring the entire park (even riding some things twice), we still have two to three hours to kill before it’s time for Fantasmic. We even had Fastpass+ seating reserved on our most recent trip, but we didn’t want to wait around for two hours. I look forward to reading your post!!
