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 would love to win this!! I would use it for F&W and MNSSHP when I go in September for my honeymoon. And with those being paid for we could afford to do the Chef’s Table at Victoria and Albert’s!!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift card. It would help us greatly as we plan for our trip next year. We will be celebrating my son’s high school graduation and my mom’s 60th birthday!

    To win one of these gift cards would be a major blessing. I am trying to arrange going to Disney for my 18th birthday, but souvenirs and food are a lot of extra costs. If I won one of these, it would be more obtainable.

  9. Sheila Fretz – Los Angeles, California – My name is Sheila and I am the founder of Cooking Underwriter. I am an Underwriter by day with a passion for Gluten Free Cooking and Baking. Who happens to love Disneyland Resorts and Walt Disney World for many reasons, The Gluten Free Food Options, The Rides, The Restaurants in addition to the fun that is had by all when visiting. I visit Disneyland an average of two to three times a month and have been to many celebrations there over the years. Including Weddings, Birthday Parties and I also attended the 25th Anniversary Homecoming Party. I currently reside in Los Angeles, California with my husband and daughter. I live about an hour or so from Disneyland.My love of Disney first took hold, when I was a child and my Mom would take us to Disneyland 3 or four times every summer. My family really went to Disneyland in the Spring and Summer but that was always okay. After my husband and I were married and our daughter was born we joined and became annual pass holders and have been visiting frequently over the last 13 years. I also love visiting Walt Disney World which I believe is also full of magic wonderful memories. I haven’t visited Walt Disney World as many times as I have Disneyland but I always have fun when I go.

    We are just 35 days away from our first family Disney Vacation and we are sooo excited! We are bringing a 10 and 4 year old, celebrating my 40th Birthday, First Visit for the boys and this is also their Christmas gift to them from us (Mom and Dad). We are surprising them, they have no idea – it’s just going to be such an exciting surprise and adventure and with saving a whole year for this trip, these gift cards would be such a HUGE help to us while we are there for our spending money!

    My husband and I are going to Disney World for the first time in February. Winning this giveaway would be so awesome! I’m also enjoying finding all of these great blogs. Thanks so much!

    Our family is going to be at Disney Nov. 30th through Dec. 5th! We are taking my parents with us and it will be their first time as well as the first time for our three youngest! We are super excited and have already started our count down. This would be great to take along with us!

    I really hope to win his. I have been dreaming of taking my little girl to Disney for her 4th B-day and sadly I am not going to financially pull it off by June. Maybe, with a little help here and there I can shoot for next Not so Scary Halloween!
