Book the show in Ketchican through DCL
Visit Grouse Mountain as planned and if the show goes ahead (e.g. no fog!) go ahead and watch it, then call Disney and cancel the one in Ketchikan

My moral dilema with this is that it would be unfair for me to effectively hold my place in Ketchikan "just in case" and potentially prevent another family from attending - I'd love to know what you guys think as I want to play fair

Also, is it possible to the Misty Fjords by floatplane excusrion AND the lumberjack show on the same day?

I'm stuggling to find the excursion start and end times on the DCL site

Phew - that's it

Thanks so much for your help
Just so you know you can't cancel an excursion once you are three days from your sail date which I would think by the time you are in vancouver you will be.

In all reality, the chances of the show being cancelled are not that great. Just plan for the one in Vancouver and book something else in Ketchikan. orst case scenario you miss the show, but you can't plan for every little thing that could go wrong.

Thanks everyone for the great advice

We'll aim to see the show whilst in Vancouver and if there is a problem we can try and work in the Ketchikan show whilst we are there

Thanks again!

It was not full when we were there in July 2012. No DCL might have sold out of tickets, but I bet the venue would have spaces available.

How much time would you allow to visit Grouse Mountain? We have kids from ages 5 to 13, plus grandparents. A little hiking could be done, but nothing intense at all.

We spent the entire day there...from 9:30 until the last bus left around 5:00. We enjoyed watching the bears, the lumberjack show, the bird show and of course going to the top on the ski lift. The view was beautiful the day we were there. The workers and locals said it was the clearest it had been in a very long time.

I going to need to pay you to be my travel advisor. Can you get to top of grouse mountain without taking ski lift? My mom would love the bird show and the lumberjack show but would need to be sedated on a ski lift!

Would LOVE to go back! There were steps going up the mountain, but that's the only other way. When NBC set up camp in the lodge during the Olympics they had to haul everything up and down the mountain in the lifts.
