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.

    My friend Bettie left a prayer request on Facebook. Here is what she wrote:

    One of Hannah’s friends was killed in a tragic car accident last night. Please keep Mandie’s family, especially her parents and twin sister, and her friends in your prayers.

    Please pray with me:

    Father, please be with the family and friends of Mandie — comfort them, love them, give them Peace and Strength in the days and weeks ahead. Lord, we know that our ways are not your ways, and that we can not comprehend why Mandie was taken so young, but we trust and have Faith that You will be with them. We ask these things in the name of Your Son Jesus. Amen.

    Prayers for my friend Anna and her Mom and family. Here is what she wrote on Facebook:

    My mom has been disconnected from everything. Her feeding tube is out, ventilator gone, and all corrective medications removed. She is on a morphine drip for comfort, and Ativan for a bit of agitation she had felt. She is failing quickly, but the time is now in God’s hands. Thank you for the continued prayers and love. I cannot say enough about the staff here at HUP. They have been so amazing. They have provided us with coffee, tea, and an array of snacks so we don’t have to leave my mom, and doctors and nurses are coming in from the entire ICU floor. We are all in the best possible hands.

    Please pray for God’s Peace, Comfort, Strength, and Love to descend upon all of them in their time of sorrow, and that, after they grieve, they are able to remember with love all of the wonderful memories they have with her Mom — because, that, my friends, is really what matters. Thank you, everyone, for praying.

      Here is the update from Anna:

      Thank you all so very much for the love, prayers, comfort, and support you have all been this past week. My mom passed away peacefully at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania at 10:03 this evening. I cannot begin to tell you how much my family has appreciated every kind word, generous offer of help, and the many hugs – both real and virtual. My mom was one of a kind, and my Uncle Bobby Robert) really said it best when he said he thought she was indestructible. She fought through a lot in this life, and has more than earned the rest she has finally received.

      Please pray for Anna and her family as they deal with the loss of her Mom. Continue to pray that God’s Peace, Comfort, Strength, and Love would shower them.

      Great news for Deb’s husband, Paul:

      Thanks you all so very much for your prayers and well wishes. Update. The stroke was a ‘mini stroke’. His speech is back to normal and there is no paralysis. Thankfully!!! He still has the flu. They are keeping him for a few days. Christmas in the hospital 2 years in a row- what are the odds of that?
