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.

    Great ideas for getting ready for a runDisney event, Mike! I’m not a runner, but I’m so tempted to try one of these sometime!

    Go Mike! You can do it!! You are absolutely right; that 16 mile/hour requirement for the 5K is relaxed, and most folks could walk at a nice pace, take some character photos, and finish with no difficulty. I hope to follow your progress and your victory!!

    I’m going to check out that Couch to 5K app! After I have the baby, I want to shed the baby weight and work towards doing the Tinker Bell race next year with my oldest daughter. Thanks for the app recommendation, Mike!
