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.

    Thanks again for the eloquent writing, you must get that from Dad! I had a great week, a lot of wonderful kids, and chances to work with many exceptional children and learn how to help them. I don’t consider my job a job, it is a ministry and calling, and during our minute of silence I say a prayer for the many different children, staff, and teachers that will be with them during the day. I daresay that many of the staff at my school do that anyway, and that is why we have a great community and climate.
    Love you to the moon and back!

      Thank you Robin — it’s people like you that bring and give hope to a broken world, and I know for a fact that the parents of your kids appreciate and love you for the fact that you are willing to work with their children. Love you too, have a wonderful day!

    My friend Carol passed along this prayer request for her friend Cindy. Please read it and pray for them:

    My mom just called crying to say that my sister, Melissa, was diagnosed today with melanoma of the eye. They will be testing her to see if it has spread to her liver. I feel numb with disbelief. She will have a few radiation treatments as well as needing the eye removed. PLEASE everyone PRAY for her and ask everyone you know to pray for her. I and our family would appreciate it so very much. Cindy

    Please pray for the cousin of my good friend Elisha. His cousin’s name is Lazarus, and he needs a kidney transplant. If he doesn’t have one, he is looking at 6 months according to his doctors. Lazarus is a strong Christian, full of faith, a preacher, and he knows where he will be when his time is up, but he is looking to be here for a while! Please pray for the transplant that he needs, and also please pray for his family that they would be strong during this difficult time in their lives. Also, please pray for God’s Peace to come upon them and that He would comfort them also. It’s in Jesus’ name we pray with Thanksgiving! Amen.

    My friend Kristen needs prayers please for her Mom, Pamela, who needs to have surgery on her heart. The doctors are totally confident, but there are always risks, so please pray for them all. In fact, at this point I’m sharing the prayer that Kristen’s friend Meghanne wrote, please read along and pray:

    My Jesus, I pray for Kristen’s mom. Lord, I pray that no matter what happens You would receive glory. We know that you work ALL things together for good for those who love You, God and I’m so thankful that we serve such a mighty and powerful Lord. My God I pray that You would surround their family with a hedge of protection Lord. That you would give them Your peace that surpasses all understanding. That they would come and be still before Your throne and know that You are God and hold every situation in Your hands. We don’t know what is to come, but You do and we are thankful that we can trust You. Thank you that our hope is in You and that when we are steadfast in the faith and stand on the Cornerstone, we won’t be shaken. I pray that every worry would be cast at Your feet and I pray that Kristen’s family would have a heart of surrender to You, Lord. To be able to say “not our will, but Your’s be done”. My God I pray over the doctors, please give them wisdom on what to do and how to operate and I pray that You would guide their every move. I pray that You would comfort Kristen’s family in this time and that you would weigh this heavy on our hearts to pray over this situation and over this family in the days to come. Thank you, Lord for everything You have done for us. In Your Son’s blessed and holy name we pray, amen.

    Thank you!
