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’m not a ferris wheel fan either, Mike – especially not the cheapies at the local carnivals. I’ve been known to board the Giant Wheels at amusements parks or the beach – but, even those, I get a little antsy when they stop at the top. You DID get some great shots from up there, though!

      Interesting, Kuleen! Thanks for sharing that, was it the swinging, or the height, or something else that you think caused this? Most likely, I’ll probably still avoid the Ferris Wheels at our state fair we have every year, but I’ll enjoy Mickey’s Fun Wheel time and time again in the future! Thanks for commenting!

    I am severely afraid of heights!! But, in the past year, I conquered Everest, Tower of Terror, and Space Mountain! As scared as I would be, I would HAVE to try Mickey’s Fun Wheel because, well…it has Mickey on it!! I’m with you on the “throw ’em up overnight ferris wheels”…no thank you!! Those were some pretty awesome pictures that you took…thanks for sharing!!
