Last week, I told you about the Adventures by Disney package you can add on to your Disney cruise to Alaska. Now, it’s time to tell you more about the special shore experiences that come with it!
Gold panning, dog sledding, glacier trekking, zip-lining…these are just some of the exciting excursions on which your Adventure Guide will lead you. The best part? With an experienced guide, early ship debark times and private transportation, you’ll be able to fit in more adventures at each port – and not have to worry about a thing!
Take a look below at highlights of what you’ll do in each port on your Alaska trip. Some of these experiences are only available to Adventures by Disney guests…
Enjoy both a guided tour and time on your own in the historic town of Skagway, known for its unspoiled natural beauty and a storied history from the 1880’s Klondike Gold Rush.
Crest the dramatic White Pass Summit on a train ride through the wilderness and stand in awe of the Tutshi River Canyon atop the Yukon Suspension Bridge.
Relax for lunch at the organic flower and produce Jewell Gardens before a glassblowing demonstration (adults) and a gold nugget scavenger hunt (kids). Then pan for gold as a family in rich gold country!
After a breathtaking helicopter ride over the glaciers, try your hand at dog sledding before a delicious salmon bake lunch.
Trek over the Mendenhall Glacier nestled high in the Tongass National Forest.
Venture to the rainforest for a thrilling zip-lining or sky bridge adventure, along with a fascinating totem pole carving demonstration, before feasting on fresh Dungeness crab at the rustic yet charming George Intel Lodge.
Which of these adventures sounds like the most fun for your family? Let us know in the comments, but remember, with the Adventures by Disney package, you get to do them all!

My husband and I went on an Holland America Alaskan cruise tour several years ago and saw alot of wonderful things but…many places and activities were not included in our trip so we had to pay individually to do them. I would love to go back to Alaska and experience some of those activities that I missed. Alaska is a unique and vast land and even if I went every year for the next 10 I couldn’t get it all in!
