need help with itinerary DIY Seward to Denali

Alaska - boards.cruisecritic.com
We are a family of 4 (10 and 12 year old adventurous girls) and our 7 day Alaska cruise (NCL from Vancouver) ends in Seward on a Monday in late August. So far, my plan is:

Monday - spend the day in Seward - see Kenai Fjords and Exit glacier and maybe a dog sled tour at Seavy's. Seavy's offers a day tour that includes a trip to Exit Glacier and lunch and a dog sled tour.Has anyone done this tour? Is it worth it? Will we see the important sights?

Also, Having trouble deciding if I should rent a car in Seward for $327 to drive to Anchorage or if we should just take a bus there. The bus costs $65 per person so it's cheaper, but will we miss things along the way? I don't mind the driving so if there's a lot to see/do along the way, driving might be worth it.

Stay overnight in Anchorage - any must see/do things there?

Tuesday - pick up new rental car, drive to Denali. Do rafting trip in afternoon

stay overnight

Wednesday - tour Denali park - not sure if we should do guided tour or just the park shuttles. Any thoughts?

Afternoon drive to Fairbanks for 9:30 pm flight home

This is a once in a lifetime trip - I don't forsee being able to get back any time in the next 10-20 years after this trip. That said, this trip is already costing a lot more than we thought and we do need to find places to save, but still being able to do all the amazing things. Would love some advice . . .
