Disney Alaska Cruise: There's Gold in Them There Hills (VIDEO)
Disney Cruise Line
While the gold supply is pretty much tapped out and Disney's boats are a little more luxe, modern-day prospectors can still get a feel for what prospecting life was like. At Liarsville, a restored gold rush trail camp, guests can take a step back in time and try their hands at panning for gold – joined by a rough and tumble group of unshaved Disney characters.
When panning begins to get tiring, visitors hop aboard the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad and take a three-hour ride up mountains and through forests. There are breathtaking views from the coaches and even the opportunity for adult-only time during the second half of the ride, when the kids are taken to an activities car and entertained.
Cruisers interested in roughing it can take in nature at canopy level on a zip-line course through the thick pine forest.
