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.

    Apparently, there are some Hidden Mickeys out there because there’s a book about them! I’m sure if we ever made the trek out there, Gracie will be hunting them down!

      Thanks for the heads up, Heidi! I thought it seemed a weird response, but of course, I don’t know how long ago that question was posed to Mr. Smith, or if the hidden Mickey’s that exist at Disneyland are ones that aren’t on attractions. Thanks!

  2. disneydaybyday – Sean is a lifetime Disney fan who jumps at any chance to visit the parks with his family. From his early days of sleeping in a tent at Fort Wilderness and attending the only park (Magic Kingdom) to now taking his family to the parks each year, he has many experiences and stories to tell.

    No matter where we love the search for Hidden Mickey’s even outside the parks and not on Disney property. Potato chips, etc…

    There are Hidden Mickeys in all the old movies too. I love finding Hidden Mickey’s! Right now the Hidden Guide is on sale on Amazon! :)
