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.

    There are too many praises to count, and that makes me sad to think of what I am missing yet very thankful!
    Leslie and Matt’s wedding plans are coming along nicely. Jim’s procedure went well, and I made it to class and back without any problem. We may even have a full week of school!

    There have been times in the recent past that I have lost my focus, but I hope that I can “stay the course” and remember that the Lord is good.

      Absolutely too many to count, and that’s the beauty of it Robin. God knows our heart, and He knows that we are praising Him even when we can’t remember some of the reasons. I’m giving thanks for all of the same things you are today! Thanks for sharing them!

      Love you, see you in a few weeks!

    Have you ever noticed that when you start complaining to God he has a way of humbling you. This morning as I shoveled through snowdrifts above my knees to get from my apt. door around the side of the building to the parking lot where my car was, I was complaining up a storm. Well it was already storming pretty hard, which made me complain more. “God if you want me to go to church than this weather needs to stop or someone besides me needs to shovel these sidewalks.” “I’m to old, I hurt to much”, “I’ll probably get there and they will cancel while I’m out here shoveling” etc. I go to church at 7:30 a.m. on Sundays because we serve a free breakfast to anyone in need. When I got to church it was open and there were people there wanting to get warm and get something hot to eat. Not as many as usual but still quite a few. These people were so happy that we were there to feed them that some were practically in tears thanking us. Here I was complaining because I had to get out of my warm bed and shovel a little to get to my car, and these people were beyond grateful to just get in somewhere warm for a little while and get something to eat. Thank you God for setting my attitude straight!

      Becky, I know exactly what you mean about God humbling us. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us, and the beauty in the result of the fruits of your labor as well! My takeaway from this is that you were able to recognize at the end what the struggle was worth — you were there to help those that need help. In many cases, the non-Christian gets so wrapped up in his own problems that the blinders go on, and he wouldn’t have even noticed the underprivileged people that came in for a hot meal.

      Thank you for sharing with us today, and also for making a difference!

    My friend Tanya left this comment in Facebook. Prayers for her classroom family, and prayers for the family of this angel:

    I have taught many children in my long teaching career. I remember them all for different reasons, but one sweet boy has taught me more than any student I’ve ever been blessed to teach, far more than I could have dreamed to teach him. My classroom was graced with his presence and my life was blessed with his smile. He will be missed but there is an angel in heaven with a big smile and a Vikings baseball cap looking over us all. You will be missed sweet boy. You will be missed.

    My response to her was this:

    Oh Tanya, please tell the family if you see this that they’ve got prayers coming for them from all over the world, prayers for their peace, comfort, and strength; prayers of jubilation that their little angel is in Jesus’ loving arms, and has no more pain, but also tears at the thought of losing someone so young. My heart breaks for them right now.
