    We are going on the Disney Wonder to Alaska in July and I'm booking our airline reservations. How much time should I allow between disembarkation in Vancouver and our flight time? Thanks Rita

    Ahoy, Rita!

    It's so wonderful welcoming you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You're going to have an unforgettable time this summer during your voyage to Alaska! My family and I have taken two Disney Cruise Line cruises to The Last Frontier and can't wait to return! The scenery is indescribable and when you step off the ship at each port of call, you'll be placed right into the middle of the local culture, shopping and restaurants!

    On Debarkation Day, Disney Cruise Line recommends that Guests book a return flight home from the Vancouver International Airport no earlier than 12:00 p.m. This will give you enough time to debark the ship and make it through customs upon arriving back to Vancouver. My family's favorite way to get back to the airport is by booking Disney Cruise Line's Ground Transportation. In my opinion, it's worth every penny! If you're interested in adding it to your reservation, just give the helpful agents at Disney Cruise Line a call at (800) 951-3532.

    Rita, as you begin packing for your adventure of a lifetime, I highly recommend checking out the Packing List for Disney Cruises. We wore layers while visiting each Alaskan port of call because it would be chilly in the morning, but by mid-afternoon, we'd tie our jackets or sweatshirts around our waist and be very comfortable.

    If you can think of any future questions before your upcoming cruise, please don't hesitate to come back and visit us again!
