    Hello Moms Panel, We are planning a family cruise to Alaska to celebrate my mom's retirement summer of 2018. I'll have my 3 (almost 4) year old son on the cruise - what sort of Port Adventures would you recommend for tiny travelers in Alaska?

    Ahoy, Nicole!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I was so excited to read your question because my family went on a summer cruise to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder to celebrate my dad's retirement! We had so much fun celebrating while onboard! I'm happy to share with you what my 2-year old son's favorite Port Adventure was in Alaska this past summer!

    Does your son like puppies? We took my son on the Dog Sled Summer Camp Port Adventure in Juneau! After taking a beautiful drive through Juneau, your family will arrive at the Sheep Creek Summer Dog Camp and be met by professional mushers and teams of Alaskan Huskies! Once there, you'll hear stories from the days of the gold rush as well as what it takes to take care of the dogs. The absolute best part came when we were able to cuddle with the Alaskan Husky puppies! My son's face lit up the moment his hands touched their soft fur. Then, we boarded a wheeled sled and were pulled through a trail by a team of Huskies! My son loved every second!

    Even if you don't have a Port Adventure planned for each port of call, the ship will dock just steps away from the heart of each town you're visiting. We enjoyed exploring the shops and eating delicious food at the restaurants in each port of call.

    Congratulations to your mom! You and your family will have such an unforgettable time sailing to The Last Frontier!
