Mike Tuchman, the boards go-to for WDW tickets or how to handle DIS-abilities,

died in a Florida hospital on Saturday, October 24, 2015. He was 75.

More to follow. But, how do we tell the cat that he's not coming home?

At least he's going home to JudySue...

(sorry about the format, but it's my first post)

    So very sad to hear the news. Mike was always such a sharing person, sharing with his fellow dis members here the knowledge he had, a good guy for sure. Mike will certainly be missed. Condolences extended to his friends and family, here and elsewhere.

    I knew he was missing for awhile. How sad for The DIS, he was such an invaluable source of WDW knowledge.
    He helped me out and I'm going to miss him.
