I just read on Tikiman's site that he will be shutting down in a few weeks, I would guess by the last day of the month.  Too bad, I haven't been able to go back to the Poly and use the site for planning!  I copied some photos and info down anyway for a future trip.  Thanks Steve for all the info and memories!

I remember Steve's site from way back when I joined the Echo, and how much of a great reference point it has been for many in the past. How time does fly!
I wish Steve all the best in the future, he and his site will certainly be missed by many. :TikiFire:

WOW I'm schocked, but then again I shouldn't be. He almost shut down a few years ago. Will miss the site.

I think all fans of the Polynesian Resort will miss Steve's website. I know I will.

:( I'm sorry to see the site "going down".  Although we've never stayed at the Polynesian it was a place we enjoyed to eat and do our "Monorail Crawl", and, we did love to go to the site when we needed a "Disney fix".  It always made us feel good.  there are only very few sites that do that.
We wish Steve and his family the best of luck in their coming endeavors.  You and your site will be missed!!

Well, the good news is... Steve is on Facebook... so all of us who have been keeping up over there can still keep in touch with him.

At the time Tikiman was a Disney Echo Moderator he and his wife had a baby, that was years ago.  Maybe parenthood is asking more of his time than before.  Was a reason given?  Tikiman did a great service for Disney Echo members who relied on and enjoyed his advice, news, perspectives and insights, the site members valued Steve's presence and expertise.  We remember him fondly, and hope he and his family enjoy travelling to Disney World and the Polynesian Resort and sharing all that experience with their kids.      :hula2:  :hula:  :thumbsup:  :pixiedust:

He posted on his website that he didn't feel his website was doing the Polynesian Resort justice... you really need to go to the place and see it for yourself to really get a feel for what the resort is like and he was frustrated that he couldn't really make a website that does it justice, in his opinion. I think his was the best, even though he wanted better.

Tikiman renovated his site, didn't end it.  New Disney Echo Topic here, with a link to the newly refurbished Polynesian Resort fan site website:
