    We are taking our first Disney cruise to Alaska with our 8yo boys. What kinds of activities do we need to be sure to book early, before they fill up?

    Hi Angela!

    Your Alaskan adventure will be here before you know it and I know you are eagerly anticipating everything you will experience onboard as well as onshore!  Your family is going to have the best time in Alaska and your boys are at the perfect age to enjoy it all!  My boys were itty bitty when we cruised Alaska and I cannot wait to take them back so they can experience it – and remember it! 

    Prior to your sailing, you will want to book any excursions booked as those do fill up quickly!  If you haven’t, explore the options and choose what looks exciting for your family!  I highly recommend the Mendenhall Glacier – there are a variety of ways to see it, so find one that works for you and go for it!

    In addition to excursions, you will want to reserve your complimentary tickets for any character breakfasts or character greetings that are scheduled for your specific sailing.  You can do once you log into My Cruise Activities under “Onboard Fun”.  You may have to peruse each day to see what is available and scheduled for your sail date.  My boys love visiting the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at least once where they are transformed into knights or princes – complete with costumes, if you choose!  Also be sure you’ve registered them for the Youth Clubs when you complete your Online Check-In so that their Oceaneer Bands will be ready for them when you arrive for embarkation!

    Have an amazing and WONDERful time in Alaska making many magical memories!

    Happy Sailing!
