    looking at the Disney Cruise in July leaves Seattle WA to Alaska 7 nights ? is do we fly in the day of boat leaves 4pm.flight delay and miss the whole cruise so fly in a day early? we have never done any cruise so looking for all tips suggestions TY!

    Ahoy there Tricia!

    I love to hear you will be embarking on an amazing Alaskan voyage this summer!  I can't wait for you to experience the breathtaking scenery and spectacular ports of call!  What makes it even more perfect is that you will be sailing along with Captain Mickey and his seafaring crew! Many magical memories are sure to be made by you and your family!

    I definitely recommend flying in a day early.  It really makes for a hassle-free transition from land to sea, and you also get to start your vacation a day early!  Disney Cruise Line makes it very easy to do by offering a Pre-Cruise Stay in a Seattle hotel and ground transportation from the airport and to the port. 

    Your two options for your pre-cruise stay is either the Fairmont Olympic and the Seattle Sheraton which are both conveniently located to downtown and the cruise terminal.  Since you are flying in a day early you might want to visit two of my favorite Seattle tourist attractions-The Space Needle & Pike Place Market. 

    If you would like to book a pre-cruise stay, please call Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 so it can be added to your reservation. 

    If you think of any other pre-cruise questions please let me know, and if you haven't already make sure to watch Andi's Alaskan Videos (2011 Cruise Mom).  They provide great information for future Alaskan sailors like you!

    Have a "Wonder"ful day!
