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.

    Thanks, Suz! Sophie and I picked out the photos, I love the one of her in the pirate garb. We went to Downtown Disney in 2010 when it was her birthday, and the water taxi captain pulled out the kit and gave it to her for her birthday! It was such a great Disney moment and memory!

  3. disneydaybyday – Sean is a lifetime Disney fan who jumps at any chance to visit the parks with his family. From his early days of sleeping in a tent at Fort Wilderness and attending the only park (Magic Kingdom) to now taking his family to the parks each year, he has many experiences and stories to tell.

    GREAT October shots! And your blog looks great- did you redesign it? Something seems different to me…

    Love the photos, Mike! You definitely captured the month of October in pictures…makes me sad, though, that I won’t be able to visit this year for all the fun Halloween activities. I’m hoping to be there next year!
