We are going to do the Disney museum on our own the cost to get in is $20.00 per person and it will not cost much to get out there even by cab but i am researching the light rail which I believe goes out there. More to follow. Sue

You can really get alot out of 2 hours at the Disney Museum. We went soon after it first opened and spent almost 2 hours there and felt that we saw it all. Hope that helps. :goodvibes

Also, a ticket there has a time on it, so they only let in a certain amount of people at a time. It didn't feel crowded at all when we were there. Definitely worth your time if you want to see more of the early works and learn about the life of Walt Disney.

The Alaska excursions are the ones I'm dying for also.... Someone said they were suppose to be out January 5th? But when they listed these, I was hoping they would go ahead and post Alaska! I really thought they would have been out by now.....

We went to the Disney Family Museum this past year. You can see most of it in two hours. There is a lot of reading, so if you read slower(like me) it will take longer.

Having been to San Francisco numerous times (one of my all-time favorite places) I'd book anything I wanted to do on my own, online, as far in advance as possible. You can easily do the museum on your own, and also Alcatraz...which is a "not to be missed" excursion. Alcatraz books up early, so the best thing is to buy tickets online for the time you want. The night time trip to Alcatraz is awesome!
I'd spend the rest of the time just exploring the Wharf area, or I'd book (online) the Duck Tour. It's a fabulous way to see all the sights in one tour.

Question: From the dock, how far is the Presidio? can we get there by cable car, or other puplic trans that won't break us? We have been into San Fran before on a cruise, love the area, we have done excruisions on our own as well, even have Alcatraz already booked (on line) @ night!
Looking forward to this trip!

I'd have to look online to see if the cable car goes there...for some reason, my memory is telling me that it doesn't.
We took a taxi there this summer and the cost wasn't bad....I just can't remember exactly how much. Must be I have Christmas brain drain!

I just looked online to double check, and no, the cable cars don't go to the Presidio.


You will LOVE the night time excursion to Alcatraz. They let you go upstairs to see the medical areas, which they don't do during the day and it's so cool!!

I just saw they want $129 per person for the Disney family museum. I'm not going on the cruise, but please don't pay this. I think admission was $20.00 and you could catch a cab for less than $20.00 each way. If you're worried, buy tickets in advance and pay a small service charge. I just showed up and they took my $$. Perhaps with DCL in port, you might book in advance.

There isn't public transport (BART or Cable Car) to the Presidio. Your best bet is either taking a cab or maybe a bus. Look into the Muni Passport as an option that allows you to ride both the busses as well as the cable cars. http://www.sfmta.com/cms/mfares/passports.htm

You might also look into City Pass http://www.citypass.com/san-francisco for other attractions.

Agreed. San Francisco is such a user friendly city and you are better off getting advice from locals and doing it on your own.

The Walt Disney Family Museum is not the only stop, it is just two hours of this excursion. You do much more:

On this tour you will:
Board an air-conditioned motor coach for an approximate 20-minute fully narrated scenic drive along the Embarcadero and toward the Presidio.
Arrive at the Walt Disney Family Museum and discover the amazing life and journey of the founder of our company during this approximate 2-hour visit. The Museum is composed of two buildings, so ensure to dedicate time to both the main museum building and the Riley Building during your free time to explore. Galleries, special exhibits and unique artifacts make this visit a special one to Disney fans of all ages. Note: The Museum is dedicated to the life of Walt Disney himself and may not be appealing for children under 10 years of age.
Re-board your motor coach and continue for an approximate 15-minute photo stop at Twin Peaks. With incredible panoramic views, Twin Peaks sits at almost the geographic center of the city of San Francisco. With a height of 922 feet, Twin Peaks has 2 summits used for both residences and television and radio transmission towers. Atop the summit is a reservoir holding 14 million gallons of water for San Francisco hotels and homes. Many birds also enjoy Twin Peaks views.
Next, continue your scenic drive to the Golden Gate Park, past the de Young Fine Arts Museum and Gardens. Your motor coach will make a brief stop near Cliff House on the Pacific coast.
Continue past the Palace of Legion of Honor, travel along the coastal road to the Golden Gate Bridge where you'll have an approximate 30-minute photo stop. Note: The Golden Gate Bridge is often shrouded in fog.
From there, drive past the Cannery, Ghirardelli Square and the lively Fisherman's Wharf area before returning to the pier.


Hope this helps...Besides being from the DCL maybe a little extra will be for us @ the Walt Disney Family Museum !!!

Robin & Agel "D" :thumbsup2

Merry Christmas

I would still lean toward taking a cab to the museum and then a walking tour (on your own) of the wharf area, which includes the Cannery and Ghirardelli Square.
Other than the museum, the rest of that ship tour is not very impressive.


Or...as I'd said.....if you don't want to walk around and see all that, you can reserve tickets for the Duck Tour, and that will show you all those sights (except the museum) and China Town and the Giants ball park.

No such luck on the light rail--your best bet is the taxi. It shouldn't be too horrible from the pier to the Presidio. Public transit out to the Presidio is poor. (BTW--love the museum--I've been twice)

The duck tour is a lot of fun--for my 40th birthday, my husband threw me a party on the duck tour in San Francisco. If you have kids, it's a hoot, and will give you a good tour of the city. Also, a long walk away from the dock, there's the Aquarium of the Bay, which is a lot of fun, and great for kids.

I'll add more "DITTOS" onto that one. I wouldn't recommend a car if you are staying in the city.

When we drive in to SF the first thing I try to do is ditch the car -- it's a pain to find parking there. Plus when the cruise line ships are in downtown, that area is especially a mess since people are arriving and departing from an area not designed for it.;)

Okay--keeping in mind that we are weird people, and our tastes may not be everyone's, here is our list of Things We Like to Do in San Francisco:

Near the dock (you can walk there from your ship):

Pier 39 (my 14-year-old is particularly fond of the Turbo Ride and The Aquarium of the Bay)
The Aquarium of the Bay (also on Pier 39--if you have little ones, this is a can't-miss)
The Duck Tour (if you want a tour of the city, this is the way to go.)
The Musee Mechanique (This is a WHOLE lot of fun--it is a whole group of various coin-operated amusements, many of which are more than 100 years old. Bring quarters, or a 5-spot to get change. My daughter INSISTS we visit each and every year.)
The WWII-era submarine (My father was a history instructor)
The Martime Museum (if it's open--my father-in-law was a Merchant Marine)
The Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum (Silly, but fun)
The Wax Museum (My daughter loves them. Not as big a deal for me.)

Further Away from the Dock (Usually, you need a taxi or a bus):

Any museum (With kids, particularly the Academy of Sciences, the Exploratorium, and The Walt Disney Museum. My daughter (14), also loves the San Francisco MOMA)
Union Square (in particular, the Disney store)

We know that Alcatraz is very popular, but we've never gone.
Ghirardelli Square is just okay

If You Need Stuff (within walking distance):

A few blocks away from the docks, there is a shopping center called Northpoint. It has a Walgreens and a Safeway. Kitty-cornered from it's parking structure, there's a Trader Joe's.

mellers
12-28-2010, 12:50 AM
Also, wanted to add one more thing--I checked out the listed San Francisco Excursions, and it says that you must have a collapsible wheelchair to go to the Aquarium of the Bay and the Wax Museum. Codswallop. I've gone to both in my mobility scooter more times than I can count. You have to be careful, but there's no reason you can't go through both places comfortably.

I'm down in So Cal now but went to grad school at Cal :hippie:

Some of the places where I would take visitors:

North Beach - great Italian food. http://www.sfgate.com/neighborhoods/sf/northbeach/

If you want pizza and feel like taking BART out to the East Bay, check out Zacharys. http://www.zacharys.com/

Chinatown - You might check out out Chowhound.com before choosing a restaurant. Something that is unique but literally a hole in the wall is the fortune cookie factory http://www.sanfranciscochinatown.com/attractions/ggfortunecookie.html.

Cable Car - gotta do it just cuz you're in SF. Take a ride from the Wharf past Chinatown to Union Square. Hop on a bus to get back.

Lombard Street - Even if you aren't in a car, it is such a famous street and you see it in so many movies that it is worth at least stopping by. http://www.sftravel.com/lomabardcrookedstreet.html

Ghiradelli Square - The chocolate and ice cream aren't anything out that you can't get elsewhere. The sign and plaza are pretty in the dark so, if it isn't too cold, you can walk down after visiting Fisherman's Wharf.

Fisherman's Wharf - Honestly, IMO, it is overrated. Yeah, you should walk around and see what is there but it has gotten so dirty and the restaurants aren't all that great anymore. I'm sure others feel differently.

Wine Country - Beautiful! If you are into wine and have time, it is worth the adventure.

Golden Gate Park - HUGE with so much to see and do. As has been mentioned, the Academy of Sciences is amazing. http://www.calacademy.org/

Haight Ashbury - :hippie: http://www.lovehaight.org/ :hippie: Not really that big of a deal but might be of interest to some of you.

Marina Safeway - (just joking). Back in the day, it was the place to go if you wanted to pick up more than groceries. :hug: :rotfl:
