    For the Skagway Alaska Big Nugget (SW58) tour, do we get to ride the sled or just watch?

    Hi Kristen,

    There's gold here at planDisney, so I'm glad you stopped by! Well, there isn't actual gold, but we do feel like we hit the jackpot when Guests like you ask great questions! 

    You must be counting down the minutes until your Disney Cruise Line vacation begins. A visit to Alaska will be a perfect way to celebrate summer. The Big Nugget (SW58) Port Adventure is a perfect way to explore some of Alaska's treasures. To answer your question, I reached out to a Disney Cruise Line Crew Member who provided me with more details about what to expect on your Port Adventure. 

    First of all, it sounds like you will have time to interact with the adorable puppies and skillful dogs who may someday be a part of the famed Iditarod race. It sounds like there will be lots of puppy-breath and snuggles that you won't soon forget. One of the Iditarod mushers and a team of dogs will demonstrate their sport on a special gravel track. Guests will not ride on the sled but will get a front-row seat to this amazing demonstration. 

    You will also pan for gold while learning about the history of Alaskan gold mining. You even get to keep the gold you find! Your adventure includes a yummy Alaskan BBQ lunch and lively entertainment. It sounds like a great way to enjoy your day in Skagway!

    When you head back to the lovely Disney Wonder, don't forget to grab a cozy blanket and a cup of hot chocolate and reminisce about your day with the majestic mountains as a backdrop. All this talk of Alaska has me ready to book another cruise! I hope you enjoy your vacation, Kirsten! 

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
