Alaska on the Disney Wonder

Just got back from my first ever cruise on the beautiful Disney Wonder to Alaska. I had an amazing time and really wanted to stay onboard for the next sailing too!

If I had any advice for anyone on the upcoming sailings it would be do not stress about the weather - the only time I was freezing was on Tracy Arm day and that was only when I was standing at the front of deck 10. I didn't bring a big winter coat but wore lots of layers which worked perfectly. We had gorgeous sunshine in Skagway and Juneau which made for a pleasant surprise as this was the opposite of what was forecast.

Also bring an umbrella as it rained for nearly the whole day in Ketchikan - we saw many unprepared people buying extra layers in the gift shops near the dock.

Lots of my friends who are looking at doing a Disney Cruise asked me to take photos and videos to show them. I took nearly 10,000 photos and lots of videos. Don't worry as I don't intend to share them all but I will try and post the best of what I have.

Wow - many thanks for posting all this! I'll keep checking back for sure - we leave in 10 days for a cruise departing on July 1!

Do you remember how they worked the Pixar Party and/or Semi-Formal night on your cruise? Things don't seem to be particularly well figured out with the whole Pixar thing yet...

Unfortunately I have no idea, sorry. We went to Palo that night which was simply amazing.

Another video. I was lucky enough to be back in Vancouver this week so found myself down at Canada Place to watch the Disney Wonder arrive

Thank you for your kind words - thankfully a Gorillapod tripod and iMovie work wonders

Yerilee was my stateroom host last may, I thought he did a wonderful job. I may have missed it, did you tell us what room you were in? I've stayed in 7626 previously but have 7622 booked for Alaska this August.
