Welcome to those of you joining me from Adventure in the Great Wide Somewhere and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail.
When most people think of taking a Disney Cruise they immediately think of destinations such as the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and Alaska. But did you know that you can also take a cruise along the California Coast? Disney Cruise Lines does indeed sail along the California Coast and visits many exciting ports of call such as San Francisco.
Cruises that visit the California Coast range from 2 – 5 day cruises departing from either San Diego, California or Vancouver Canada. You can view more information about these cruises on the Disney Cruise Line website.
While on a Disney Cruise you can select from many exciting adventures in each port of call. One of ports of call on a California Coast cruise is the breathtaking city of San Francisco.
I used to live in San Francisco for many years and there was never a shortage of things to do or see, it is a beautiful city.
Located in the Presidio area of San Francisco is the Walt Disney Family Museum and a visit to the Museum is a must for any Disney fan. The Museum is dedicated to the life of Walt Disney and contains many galleries filled with artifacts, movies, drawings, music and Disneyland History.
One of the Disney Cruise Line excursions on the California Coast is a visit of the Walt Disney Family Museum. This tour can be done by itself for 3 hours or paired with a tour of San Francisco. When paired with a tour of San Francisco the museum visit will last for only 2 hours. While any Disney fan would be happy to visit the Museum it may not be exciting for children under 10 years old.

After the visit to The Museum you will either return to the ship or continue with a short tour of San Francisco if you have chosen that option.
The tour bus will take you on a quick trip to the top of Twin Peaks which is at 922 feet elevation. The views of San Francisco are amazing and there are a lot of birds in the area as well. This may sound like a strange statement but take a look at these photos I took one time when I was up at Twin Peaks.

But seriously, the views from Twin Peaks are amazing, if you ever find yourself visiting San Francisco this is one place you need to go.
The tour continues with a drive into Golden Gate Park and past the historic de Young Fine Arts Museum and Gardens with a stop near Cliff House. Lastly, the tour will travel along the coast towards the Golden Gate Bridge and take a quick 30-minute photo opportunity stop.
I hope you get a chance to board a Disney Cruise and make a stop in San Francisco or at the very least a trip to San Francisco one day.
