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.

    You listed most of my favorite things about Magic Kingdom. As you know I am not quite daring enough for the thrill rides, but a thrill for me is walking down Main Street and strolling through Liberty Square. Carousel of Progress is also a favorite of ours. I remember when I was a teen and we had just gotten back from our very first trip to WDW, my mom sang the theme song constantly. It is a special memory I have associated with that attraction.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it, Beth, and that it brought back such good memories for you! It just goes to show that a little imagination will create a blog post from almost any situation!

    Aww I missed you! But you know, I commute to Arlington…. 31 miles.. It DOES suck. Luckily, I'll be enjoying the Carousel of Progress sooner than later, so I can think about peaceful times!

    I know! Sorry I didn't think to reach out to you, so maybe next time. I know how bad the traffic is up there, until I moved down here my last job in NoVA was driving from Manassas to Reston. Thanks for posting!
