Disney Cruise Line pulls Alaska plans for now

Disney Cruise Line withdrew an application for a permit to sail in Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park.

The news was included in a release from the park last week announcing awards to multiple cruise lines that had been competing for the limited number sailing slots. The permits cover sailing in Glacier Bay between 2010 and 2019.

Disney Cruise Line spokeswoman Rena Langley said the company pulled its application because “for now, Glacier Bay doesn’t fit in our future itinerary plans.”

But Langley said that doesn’t necessarily rule Alaska out as a future cruise destination for Disney. “We’re continuing to explore many future itinerary options and, certainly, Alaska remains on our radar.”
