    Hi William!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You will be embarking on one of my all-time favorite itineraries! Sailing to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder is nothing less than magical. My family went this past July and had the best time on our whale watching Port Adventure! I'm so excited to share more with you about the whale watching tour we've taken.

    Both Juneau and Ketchikan have whale watching excursions listed in the Port Adventures on the Disney Cruise Line website. My family booked the Best of Juneau and it was fabulous! In fact, they guarantee you will spot a whale or else you'll receive $100.00 as you disembark the catamaran! In the last 15 years, whales have been seen every tour!? We saw so many whales during the whale watching portion of the excursion that we lost count! The best video we took was of a mother and baby whale jumping up out of the water with each other. I will never forget watching them play. Included in this excursion was a delicious lunch with grilled wild Alaskan salmon, chicken and all the fixings, too. Yum!

    Choosing Port Adventures is so much fun! William, I suggest taking a peek at the list of Port Adventures with your family and writing down your top three for each port of call. I highly recommend the Best of Juneau but believe any excursion you choose will be phenomenal. Don't forget to whale watch right from the ship throughout your cruise! We saw whales swimming and spraying water through their blowholes while at sea!

    Start taking lessons from Dory and practice speaking whale so you'll be able to communicate with all the beautiful whales on whichever excursion you choose!
