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.

    We chose the same park order. I like that all of the transportation options are utilized this way which adds to the challenge! But slipping in a ‘fifth’ park at the end? You’re a wild man!

    We did the 4 parks in 1 day on April 27 this year! Started at AK, Dinosaur , Everest and met a bunch of characters. Then HS for tower of terror, star tours, toy story..over to Epcot for spaceship earth, Canada, meeting characters…then my husband and son went back to HS to ride Aerosmith a few times as it was closed when we were there. My daughter and I headed to MK and we stayed till 1am, met up with the rest of our family and hit about 10 rides. An awesome day for sure.

    I love that you’ve dreamt up the perfect 4 Parks day for you! I think ending in the Magic Kingdom during EMH would be a perfect nightcap! :)

    Douple dipping at Magic Kingdom is a nice touch! Nothing beats early morning or late night on Main Street U.S.A., and you might think you’d have to choose one or the other for the challenge, not BOTH!

    But if you can do it, I think that’s the best version I’ve seen yet!

      I agree. To me that does count as a 5th park with bragging rites.
