Can someone help with Itinerary, please?

We are planning a trip to the Anchorage area June 21-June 30, 2007. Can someone have a look at my itinerary before I start paying deposits, and let me know if this looks doable? Any suggested revisions would be welcome!

Day 1: Arrive Anchorage 12:16 am, spend night in Anchorage

Day 2: Get car and drive to Seward. Sightseeing along the way. Go to Alaska SeaLife Center, Eat at Ray’s Waterfront. Spend night at (hopefully) Alaska Saltwater Lodge or Soo’s B&B (Fall's Inn is unavailable).

Day 3: Take 10:00 a.m. Kenai Fjord cruise w/lunch at Fox Island. Spend night at (hopefully) Alaska Saltwater Lodge or Soo’s B&B.

Day 4: Visit Exit Glacier. Take Seavy’s Iditarod Sled Dog Ride & visit kennels. Travel up the hwy. to visit Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center @ Portage Glacier. Spend night in Girdwood at Alyeska Resort (got a Toursaver coupon!)

Day 5: Eat breakfast. Drive to Whittier for Prince William Sound 4-hour cruise @ 1:30 pm. Spend night back in Girdwood at Alyeska Resort.

Day 6: Take Tram Ride at Alyeska after breakfast. Drive to Talkeetna. Hatcher Pass side trip if time permits. Spend night at Chalet B&B or the Roadhouse in Talkeetna.

Day 7: Take Talkeetna Aero Services flightseeing to Denali Park. Spend the day in Denali Park. Spend night somewhere in Denali.

Day 8: Leisurely brunch in Denali, 2 pm Nenana whitewater rafting. Meet Talkeetna Aero at 6:30 pm for return flight to Talkeetna. Drive to Anchorage to spend night (where? Toursaver hotel w/shuttle to airport hopefully)

Day 9: Visit Aviation Heritage Museum and Alaska Navite Heritage Center. Turn in car, pack up and spend night in Anchorage.

Day 10: Take shuttle to airport and depart for Dallas on 6:00 am flight to Dallas.

Thanks for your help and suggestions! Hopefully, this itinerary isn't too hectic.

Looks good to me.

You could also do the big game refuge and/ or Portage Glacier in the morning before going to Whittier.

In case you didn't know...there is a tunnel to Whittier open for 15 minutes each direction per hour. Going to Whittier you want to be there on the half hour so for a 1:30 cruise departure you'll need to be at the tunnel 12:30. The toll is $12 only going into Whittier, no charge to escape which is on the hour. 6pm, 7pm etc.
