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’ve been looking for a new countdown clock; thanks for the recommendation. And I agree with you closing comment, the quality and extent of the theming throughout the world is the difference between Disney and anywhere else.

  2. 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.

    The anticipation is half of the fun isn’t it Mike! I haven’t ordered a custom map yet, I almost did for our last trip and time ran out. I will definitely do that next time. Great post!

    I agree with you… I truly savor the trip planning and anticipation, almost as much as the Disney trip! Ok, not really. But I do really savor it. ;)

    Love your top 5! Thanks for sharing them with us.
