    Hi Moms, 3rd Disney cruise, but first one to Alaska. Kids will be almost 10 and 8. What are the best excursions for the 3 ports. Juneau, Ketchikan and Skyway. We can start booking in a week. Thanks so much!

    Hi there, Heather!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited that you are heading to Alaska aboard the magnificent Disney Wonder!  We sailed an Alaskan itinerary a few years ago and it was simply breathtaking!  We had an incredible time and I know you will too!

    With your Online Check-In and activities booking window approaching, I know you must be so excited!  It can be overwhelming when looking at all the excursions available – you want to do them ALL, so it can be a challenge to narrow it down!  First off, think about what kind of excursion you want – adventurous, more scenic, historical?!? – and see if you can narrow it down from there.  Also, check the age requirements to ensure everyone is old enough to do them as some of them have strict requirements.  If that doesn’t help, here are some things that we did and I would highly recommend:

    -Mendenhall Glacier (Juneau) – there are a variety of ways to see this beauty, so see if one of the options catches your eye and looks appealing!  I would certainly mark this as a MUST DO!
    -Misty Fjords (Ketchikan) Floatplane – this was a unique way to see an incredible sight
    -Goldpanning and Dog-Sledding (Skagway) – now, this was fun!  Super exciting! The White Pass Railway also comes highly recommended!

    Really, Heather, you can’t go wrong with any of the excursions!  Anything you decide to do will be simply amazing!  I think the best bet is to just think about your group and what everyone would enjoy the most and go with it!  It will be a trip you won’t forget!

    Happy Sailing!
