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.

    Mike, thank you so much for this post. The Magical Blogorail has become a place I can go for anything – Disney related or not. This has been a rough year for my family, and I am so thankful for all of you on the Magical Blogorail supporting us. I have to especially say a very big thank you to you too. You always come through with photos, info and tech solutions! You are one of the most giving people I know and I am so thankful that we have crossed paths and become friends!

    Hi Mike,

    I’m so glad you wrote this. I’ve often come upon the various Blogorails and wondered about them. I thought that someday — when I had a little time — I’d love to find out what the “backstory” was and why the various colors (groups) — and now I know!

    They sound like such a fantastic group, and I know the information they provide is among some of the best. And thanks for providing the link to the complete list. There are some blogs I’m familiar with and some new ones to explore — and new friends to be made as well!


  5. disneydonnakay – United States – If you’ve seen me on the web you already know there’s nothing I love more than planning Disney parties, but I love everything Disney from the history to the theme parks to the movies. I can sometimes be sarcastic, but always helpful, and a mostly entertaining Disney Fanatic!! A true Alabama girl, born and raised, I live with my husband, Mike, and son, Dakota on a 150 acre farm in Troy that's been in my husband's family since before the Civil War. My daughter, Ashley, lives in Clarksville, TN with her husband, Eric, and their kids Lexi & Tripp. If you we ever get to meet in person, you will find a genuine Southern accent, the overuse of affectionate terms like "Honey", "Sugar", and "Darlin” and an uncontrollable need to dote over everybody.

    Thanks everyone for your comments! We are a special group, and it is great to know that we all have a space we can go to when we need to unwind a bit and sound off about something.
