Now that the hardest part of planning a summer vacation—picking the destination!—is behind you, it’s time to sit back and let someone else do the rest of the planning for you. In 2020, you can add an Adventures by Disney Cruise Package to your Alaska voyage and take a backseat in the planning process and rest assured that every detail of your family vacation will be magical. It’s the best way to enhance your Disney cruise and experience Alaska like a VIP.

Here’s what you can expect with the Adventures by Disney Alaska Cruise Package …

Premium Adventures Ashore

All the details of your days ashore are planned meticulously for you, including transportation, meals and a variety of experiences so you can truly enjoy the best of Alaska. Whether you’re ziplining from treetop to treetop in the rainforest or mastering your gold panning skills and soaking up the history of the Klondike Gold Rush, the excursions are planned with you and your family in mind.

The Adventures by Disney package maximizes your time in port so you can pack in the most fun as possible. On one of your days ashore, you’ll be treated to three big Alaskan adventures: marveling at the size and beauty of Mendenhall Glacier, watching for whales on a private cruise and savoring a traditional Alaskan salmon bake. Talk about a full day of fun!

Exclusive Experiences Onboard

Your VIP treatment starts from day one on the ship with a special welcome reception just for your Adventures by Disney group, giving you a chance to connect with the other families in the same boat (pun intended!) Then, most days you’re in port, you’ll be the first off the ship, ensuring you have ample time to pack in all of the fun at hand.

Even your days at sea include premium activities, like the chance to relax in the Rainforest Room at Senses Spa or get a behind-the-scenes prop experience and tour of the Walt Disney Theatre. At the end of your cruise, you’ll enjoy a farewell reception where you’ll likely be exchanging contact info with the new friends you and your children made during this adventure. And don’t forget to pick up your bundle of professional photographs of your time onboard and ashore, which are included in the Adventures by Disney package. Now both parents get to be in the family vacation photos!

Just knowing you have that resource prevents any stress from creeping in on your precious family time, giving each of you the chance to relax, have fun and enjoy every minute together!
