    Hi, we are doing the San Diego to Vancouver cruise, but our flights from Vancouver aren’t until 4pm. Is there anything pretty local to the cruise port or the airport (given that we will have our cruise luggage) Me, hubby & 3 year old daughter.

    Ahoy Kelly!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Can you believe you are only a couple months away from your adventure with Captain Mickey?  I bet your little one is on cloud nine waiting to visit him and all his pals onboard during your high seas adventure.  I cannot wait for you to experience all of the magic onboard together!

    Vancouver is such a beautiful city!  You can discover some of the natural beauty of this port with a visit to Stanley Park, which is about ten miles from the airport.  It can sometimes take 30 minutes to get to the airport from here, but with a 4:00 PM flight, this should leave you time for a visit.  Vancouver Aquarium is also located here and a great option for your little one to get up close and personal with some of the sea life of the Pacific Northwest.  I would also recommend while you are on the ship to talk with the Cast Members at the Port Adventures Desk.  They are familiar with each port you visit and can often give great recommendations for what to do with your free time!

    I did a quick search and there are luggage storage services at the cruise terminal and airport that you could take advantage of to enjoy the day in Vancouver without your bags.  You could also consider renting a vehicle for the day to keep your luggage with you and give you freedom to explore this gorgeous city on your own.

    I hope I've steered you in the right direction, Kelly!  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
