    My family is heading off to a 7 night Alaskan cruise on the Wonder & I've heard about a Pirate night. Is this something they do for the Wonder too? Also, we will be going on an excursion to the glacier to see the dog sleds. Do we need boots for that?

    Welcome aboard, Christina! I'm so excited to hear that your family is getting ready to set sail to Alaska with Disney Cruise Line! Disney Cruise Line's sailings are always amazing, but the Alaskan itinerary is a very special one!

    Disney Cruise Line does not offer Pirate Night with fireworks in Alaska, but replaces that with a very special event that only cruisers in Alaska get to experience. The Pixar Pals Party takes place in the Wonder's atrium lobby and includes lots of singing and dancing with your favorite Pixar friends, plus photo opportunities! If your family has costumes from any Pixar movies, that is a great time to wear them, as it makes for some really great photos! Plus, you'll enjoy a Toy Story-themed menu at dinner that night to continue the Pixar fun!

    Dog Sledding and Glacier Flightseeing is probably going to be one of your favorite memories of your time in the ports on this cruise, Christina! You're in for a real treat when you fly over the beautiful scenery and then get to spend some time with those cute puppies and the dogs at the dog camp and even get a ride on a dog sled! Before you board the helicopter, everyone in your group will be fitted with glacier boots and vests, so no need to provide your own boots.

    If you haven't already, be sure to check out my fellow Disney Cruise Line Mom Nancy's videos about cruising to Alaska with Disney! She has all sorts of tips for you plus some sneak peeks at what you'll get to encounter on your trip!

    Enjoy planning all these fun details, Christina, and let us know if you have any other questions before you set sail! We're happy to help!
