In our “Mom’s Take” video series about cruising to Alaska, Nancy from the Disney Parks Moms Panel has been showing you all kinds of awesome adventures you can have in America’s Last Frontier. But with so many options for things to do and see ashore, the question begs to be asked…

“How can I make the most of my days in port?”

Of course you won’t be able to do it all, but there are ways that you can maximize your time and see as much as possible without feeling stressed. Take a look at this video for a few tips, and if you’ve already cruised with us to Alaska, leave us your own tips in the comments.

  • We had an amazing time in Alaska. You can never go wrong sailing on Disney Cruise Line. The captain did an excellent job maneuvering through Tracey Arm to get us an up close look at the Glacier.
    We did the self guided Ranger tour in the Western town of Skagway. In Juneau we took a bus to Medenhall Glacier and hiked to Nugget Falls which was spectacular. On our final stop Ketchikan, we did a walking tour to Creek Street, along the creek boardwalk to the salmon ladder then headed to the hackery. Note: the hackery has been closed for 2 years.
    We had a wonderful time on the Disney Wonder. We had terrific weather.

  • My tip would be to be ready the second you can get off the ship to maximize your time. If your port adventure is a litte later, get out into town to check some things out. I wish in Alaska Disney would allow those who had a later adventure the option to check in somewhere off the ship for their activity. It was a bummer for us to have to plan enough time to get back to the ship, clear security, trek to the meeting location and wait for everyone else to arrive. We probably could have had an extra hour or so to shop and explore in town. On prior cruises we were able to do this so it was a bummer we were not allowed to in Alaska.
