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 eight years, Mike has helped many of his readers plan and have incredible Disney vacations of their own. Check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

    Very cool shot! I had no idea they'd done Google Earth pictures in the park! Will definitely be adding that to my list of Disney “fixes” to tide me over between visits.

    Wow – I had no idea that you could get that kind of detail on Google Earth – will have to check it out! Wouldn't it be nice to be able to walk around the park when it was empty like that and get photographs without other people in your way?

    Love it Mike! The castle is my favorite Disney Weenie! Google Earth is so much fun – I too go there for my Disney fix. Dreaming that Disney World were this uncrowded on my next trip!! Thanks so much for sharing and for joining in on the Disney WW Blog Hop fun:)

    Google earth is great to visit new places. Love how they have added 3D to Disney and other locations. Thanks for sharing!

    That would be the Ultimate Disney Day, wouldn't it Lisa?! Better yet, to have that empty park and be able to hop right on the rides you want too, that would be cool! Google Earth is so cool with the things they have incorporated, if you have trouble finding how to turn that on, shoot me an email to and I'll help out!

    How cool… I never knew you could do that at WDW with Google Earth. I've done it with other places and had lots of fun. What a great way to explore the parks. Thanks for sharing that tip. I now have another way to waste time on my computer – I will never get my laundry finished. TeeHee =)
