I am planning my 30th birthday trip to Alaska this summer from June 28th-July 8th. There will be 5 of us, and have two full days (and a half of another day) to experience Denali. My question is two part:
1. Two of us definitely would like to take the voyage to Wonder Lake, but we aren't sure how the others will feel and was just curious if we bought tickets for separate destinations, could we still journey most of the way there? Or any suggestions on how to work this out?
2. Would you recommend buying the bus tickets in advance? I ultimately would like to travel out to the lake when the weather seems best, but also didn't want to miss out on getting seats early. I saw on the website that they reserve 35% for booking at the WAC, but is it too risky to wait until then?
Many thanks! And also, I just wanted to say I love reading all these threads! My trip is 4 months out and its all I'm thinking about!!
