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.

    Hidden Mickeys and Carousel of Progress! Two of my favorite things! Thanks for sharing; I’ll have to be on the lookout for those hidden Mickeys next time I’m at WDW.

    My favorite Hidden Mickey in that scene is the stuffed on that is popping up behind a pile of Christmas packages! I’ve got a close-up picture of those ears! ;)

      Maybe by not saying anything until you called me on it I was implicitly saying that I don’t have a clue where they are and that I’d better open my eyes next time to find them? :)
