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.

    Great post Lee, I would love to do the tour as well! Maybe when Sophie hits it big as a Digital Animator for Disney she’ll be allowed to give us that tour!

Kimberly can often be found searching for hidden Mickeys everywhere she goes, not just in the parks. She also enjoys listening to Disney parks music any chance she gets.

    I would love to tour the animation studios! I heard about the Adventures By Disney package a while ago and immediately added it to me ever growing Disney bucket list.

    Oh my goodness, YES! I long for the day we may be able to do a tour of the Burbank studios, but you’re right – a private tour would be even better… only second to a private tour after traveling back in time :) I hadn’t thought of it specifically, but I totally agree that it would be incredible to visit Pixar studios, too. That seems like the single most fun place to work, anywhere! If only I had *any* of the talents it would take to get in that world ;)

    Oh yes! I’d love to just stand in wonder at the front gates of these places, but I think they’d eventually call security on the crazy woman out front. ;) Getting in there would be a whole other ball game! Hoping that one day I’ll know a guy! lol I’d love to get my hands on a pixar ball. No, not for the kids. Just for me! Great post, Lee!
