One of the best things about choosing to sail with Disney Cruise Line is the wide variety of itineraries and destinations to explore. One of the “coolest” itineraries is our Alaska sailing on the Disney Wonder. If you and your family are planning an Alaskan cruise this summer or next, here are five of the best ways to stay cozy on your vacation.

Guest with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on a Disney Cruise in Alaska

1. Dress in Alaskan Fashion

As Mickey and Minnie can tell you, packing layers and warm clothes is an essential part of your trip. Whether you’re experiencing a thrilling Port Adventure or enjoying the fun onboard, you’re going to want to make sure your attire keeps you warm and ready to explore Alaska.

2. Go For a Swim

While there will be snow-capped mountains instead of beaches, fear not. You can find heated pools and hot tubs on the upper decks. This is a great way to stay warm and cozy while still getting to soak up the views.

Our Alaskan cruises feature many exciting Port Adventures to really get your blood pumping. One of my personal favorites is dog sledding where you can get close with adorable puppies. What better way to stay warm than puppy cuddles?!

5. Hang Out with Olaf and His Friends

Everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf, is a big fan of warm hugs, so make sure to catch him in “Frozen, A Musical Spectacular,” in Disney’s Oceaneer Club or during the “Freeze the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends” deck party.


  • Bruce, I mean that the trip is a bit of a thrill ride. You travel down canyons with steep walls in a rickety-looking (but totally safe) train on a narrow- (or medium?) gauge track. You should always dress appropriately for Alaska/Yukon Territory. It wasn’t cold when I went (late August), but there was plenty of snow and ice and glaciers to see.

  • JD: Are you saying that the train cars are not warm and cozy as in “not heated” so dress appropriately? What time of year did you visit?

  • Oh wow… this looks lovely

  • I got to meet the puppies during my one and only (so far) Disney cruise. You are actually encouraged to cuddle and play with them so that they acclimated crowds of people. I also recommend taking the White Pass railroad trip. It’s not warm and cozy, but it’s definitely a thrill.
