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.

      I don’t think I ever knew that, Jenn! It’s a great concept and intriguing thought to putting one in back then. Thanks for commenting, have a great night!

    Obviously, Disney learned from their mistakes because they have a wave machine at one of the water parks, right? So, it wasn’t a total failure. :)

  2. Kimberly * theParkWorld – Kimberly has been a frequent visitor to the Disney parks ever since her first visit as a child. She loves learning about Disney trivia and history. Kimberly can often be found searching for hidden Mickeys everywhere she goes, not just in the parks. She also enjoys listening to Disney parks music any chance she gets.

    Now that you mention it, I do remember hearing about the wave machine, but I had completely forgotten about it. Thanks for letting us know about it! Very interesting!

    That’s really neat that it’s still down there. I hope the fish like it!

    I love random Disney trivia! I searched high and low for all info about the old water park, River Country. So cool people sneak in and get pics. I could never do that, though ;)
