The Best Way to Experience Alaska Like a VIP

Written by

If you chose a Disney cruise to Alaska for your family’s summer vacation next year, you’re going to score major points with your loved ones when you set sail on this adventure of a lifetime. With unparalleled beauty, once-in-a-lifetime excursions, fascinating culture and more, an Alaskan cruise tops the list of “must-have experiences.”

Mother and Daughter on Disney Cruise in Alaska

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 …

Man zip-lining in Alaska

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!

Guest with Mickey and Minnie on Disney Cruise in Alaska

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!

Family on a Port Adventure in Alaska

Knowledgeable Adventure Guides

Just like any Adventures by Disney experience, every detail is thoughtfully arranged and led by Disney-trained Adventure Guides and local experts. Since your two Adventure Guides are sailing on the cruise with you, they are your go-to for questions both on and off the ship. 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!

Leave a Legacy Monoliths Cleared on Left Side

Epcot has been going through so major renovations recently. The most noticeable being the removal of the Leave A Legacy Monoliths.

In early March, permits were filed for this removal. Walls around the monoliths were placed in May. Leave A Legacy will still be close by and available for viewing. It will be placed just outside of the Epcot entrance.

During this process, the entire west side of monoliths have been cleared. An open path has been made for easier guest entry. Although no walls have gone up, we can assume construction will begin in the removal of the east side of the monuments soon. Hopefully in time for guests enjoying the Food and Wine Festival.

Leave a Legacy Monoliths Cleared on Left Side

This isn’t the only new changes being made to the Epcot entry way. We reported last month that all details of newness coming to Epcot will be announced at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim.

After all the monoliths have been removed, planters and greenery will take its place. These planters will create new, open, pathways for guests visiting Epcot. As we can see from the concept art that’s been floating around, the area could be a newly renovated fountain.

All updates will become more clear as we near the expo. As for now, guests do not seem to mind all of the open and available space.

Are you excited to see what changes are coming to Epcot next? Let us know in the comments!

Disney Skyliner Rescue boat Spotted at Walt Disney World
What’s this, What’s this! Is it a new boat dedicated to the new Skyliner? We have recently spotted a new Disney Skyliner rescue boat at Walt Disney World.

We all know how much Disney prides itself on the safety of its guests while they are visiting the most magical place on earth. It should be no surprise that Disney has its guests in mind for when they are on the new Skyliners.

Even though it is not the most ideal thought for anyone while they are on vacation, we should all be prepared for the unexpected. Which is why Disney has revealed the new Disney Skyliner Rescue Boat. This boat is located on Hourglass lake near the Art of Animation and Pop Century Resort Station.

Disney Skyliner Rescue boat Spotted at Walt Disney World

In case of an emergency, guests can evacuate from the Skyliner onto a three-story pontoon. This giant blue boat is outfitted with plenty of ring buoys and foam barriers to protect the boat.

Guests will unload onto the top platform and proceed to the bottom to continue onto their journey back to the dock where they will unload to “safety”.

With the amount of testing the Skyliner is undergoing, we don’t predict Disney will need to use these often. However, we still rest easy knowing how guests will be evacuated from the hanging gondolas in case of an emergency!

What do you think of the new Disney Skyliner Rescue Boat? Do you feel more at ease knowing that Disney has a plan in place for guests if the Skyliner were to stop?
