Disney Wonder - Alaska - August 10, 2015

Yea! I can't wait for my first Alaskan cruise. I can't wait to hear from all of you so introduce yourself and your family. Have you cruised before? Have you cruised Disney before? Have you cruised Alaska? Let's get to know each other.

I'm Kimberly. I will be cruising with my daughter who will turn 15 on the first day, August 10! We have taken six Disney cruises. I've always dreamed of the Alaskan one and now we are going to do it! WOOHOO!

Hi Kimberly! My name is Sarah and I will be on this cruise with my husband of 1 week, Jeremy We are getting married the previous Sunday, August 2 and this will be our honeymoon cruise. I have cruised with Disney once before. This time last year I was on the Wonder cruising the western caribbean. It was fabulous! My (fiancee now and husband during the cruise) is currently in the US Coast Guard and when he first joined, he worked in Alaska. So since he wants to take me up there and show me everything, I said the only way to do it is on a cruise. And there is no better way then a Disney cruise. So we are excited

Hi Kimberly and Sarah,

I'm Mike. My wife and I cruised on the Magic 2-night sailing from NYC in 2012, and this past December we took the kids on the 3-night Bahamas cruise on the Dream. All 4 of us will be on this Alaska cruise. My daughter will be 12 and my son will be 9 at that time.

Very excited. We're planning on flying into Seattle about 8-9 days early, touring Olympic National Park, Seattle, and Vancouver before the cruise. We'll fly home from Vancouver. My wife and I are both teachers, so we've got the time.

Can't wait!

I've added both of you to the 3rd post that lists everyone. I'm trying to use the first few posts to provide helpful information for everyone traveling so if you find anything, please share and I'll add it to those first posts.

I'm a teacher as well Mike and would love to do a week prior to the cruise. I was telling my daughter yesterday that I would love to road trip it from Texas and take a week or 2 to get there and find places to visit along the way. It probably won't ever happen, but I think it would be a fun experience.

Hi Mike!

I am currently a teachers assistant and when the cruise time comes, I will be in a grad program studying for my credential. So the timing for me works out to! My fiancee (now), is in the coast guard. So for him, the timing isn't as big as it is for me.
