    Hi there, William!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I know you are eagerly awaiting your exciting adventure in Alaska!  Add the incredible sights of Alaska to the fun you will have onboard the Disney Wonder and you have a vacation planned that you won’t forget!  I am thrilled for you and it will be here before you know it!

    You have some great thoughts for your time at port.  When I visited Alaska a few years ago, we went whale watching in Juneau and had some incredible sightings!  But, of course, it could be quite the opposite – it could be hit or miss!  But, we went in late August/early September and had some wonderful whale sightings.  On the other hand, when we recently went whale watching off the coast of Spain, we saw nothing.  So, it can definitely go either way!  But, I do recommend giving it a shot because if you do see anything, it will be more than worth it!  We did not get to zipline in Ketchikan but it sounds like a lot of fun!  We had a three-month old with us and I was hesitant to be so daring!  We did go on a floatplane ride and it gave us an eagle eye perspective of the beauty of Alaska!  But, I certainly say, “Go for it!!”  Why not do something exciting and adventurous in a place that is full of adventure?!?!

    In all reality, no matter what excursions you choose to do with your time on land, you will have a WONDERful time and see so much beauty in the Alaskan landscape!

    Wishing you a magical and exciting adventure!

    Happy Sailing!
