    We will be taking our second cruise to Alaska this summer. We will be taking the JU01 tour Dog sledding on the Mendenhall glacier. What would the appropriate attire be for this adventure

    Ahoy, Andy!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You've chosen the most majestic itinerary for your second Disney Cruise Line adventure. In my opinion, Alaska is one of the most breathtaking destinations and to explore its beauty and grandeur while onboard a Disney Cruise just adds to the magic of the entire experience! We've set sail to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder twice, and can't wait to do it again.

    You're in for an adventure of a lifetime while Dog Sledding on the Mendenhall Glacier by Helicopter! I can't think of a better way to see the Mendenhall Glacier than being able to mush a team of dogs across it! Thank you for asking this question. You should plan on wearing multiple warm layers and comfortable walking shoes (since you'll be outfitted with glacier boots upon arrival to the heliport). I also recommend wearing a warm, waterproof jacket, warm socks and a hat and gloves. Disney Cruise Line suggests Guests carry rain gear along with them but please note, umbrellas will not be allowed in the helicopter.

    Andy, this excursion is going to be something you'll never forget! If you haven't already, take a look at the "Know Before You Go" section below the Port Adventure's description for even more information regarding this experience! If you have any other questions before your voyage to Alaska, please sail back and visit us again!
