    I am traveling with my 10 and 5 year old boys and husband to The Alaska cruise in june 12. I wonder what activity you recomend in juneau The whale watching or The DOG sled tour?

    Ahoy, Evelyn!

    I'm so happy to be welcoming you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oh my goodness, your voyage to Alaska is just days away! I'm so excited for you and your family to experience cruising down the fjords with the lush Alaskan landscape on either side of the ship; it's truly indescribable! I can't wait for you to see it for yourself!

    You are deciding between two incredible Port Adventures! We've had a spectacular time on the Best of Juneau excursion! We captured some incredible photos of whales jumping out of the water together. The Tour Guides guarantee you'll see a whale or you'll receive a cash refund at the conclusion of the tour! In the past 15 years, whales have been spotted on every tour. After whale watching you will feast on an Alaskan-inspired lunch followed by a trip to the Mendenhall Glacier. I'm not sure which dog sledding tour you're deciding between but the Disney Exclusive Glacier Dog Musher for a Day not only has you riding across the snow as an "assistant musher" but you get to help take care of the dogs and see their kennels, too! Plus, you and your family will take a helicopter ride to and from the dog-sledding camp!

    This is such a hard choice, Evelyn! In my opinion, I think I would choose the Disney Exclusive Glacier Dog Musher for a Day for the Port Adventure in Juneau. We've been on two Disney Cruises to Alaska and each time we've been lucky enough to see whales off in the distance from the ship's deck. They weren't as close as on the excursion, but they were visible! Becoming a dog musher for a day might be a once-in-a-lifetime excursion during a once-in-a-lifetime cruise!
