Disney Cruise Line unveiled new concept art for Lighthouse Point, the private island experience in the Bahamas that will welcome guests starting in June 2024.

Select Disney Cruise itineraries from Fort Lauderdale and Port Canaveral will visit Lighthouse Point starting with the Disney Fantasy’s inaugural visit on June 8 to 15, 2024, which includes two stops at the new experience. Available cruises include 3, 4, 5, and 10 night itineraries on the Disney Magic.

Located on the island of Eleuthera, the new island getaway is being developed with local artists and will celebrate Bahamian culture, with a sustainable focus, and a commitment to conservation.

“When guests arrive to Lighthouse Point, they’ll be greeted by distinctive, sweeping architecture in bright, saturated hues–a bold style inspired by nature and created in partnership with local artists,” DCL revealed in the announcement.

“The curvilinear buildings will at first appear as Bahamian shells scattered along the shoreline. Upon closer inspection, guests will discover artistic expressions of the native flora and fauna of The Bahamas and the pageantry and history of Junkanoo parades. Throughout the destination, references to playful folklore characters will evoke the warmth and charm of the local culture.”

Lighthouse Point will have an environmental focus similar to Castaway Cay, and DCL revealed that 90% of the electricity will be provided from on-site solar power.

Lighthouse Point will feature a range of DCL’s complimentary beach essentials, like towels, chairs, umbrellas, and lunch, plus tram transportation.

Key highlights of the island experience will include:

  • White, sandy beaches on the east side of the island near market-style dining and recreation
  • A Bahamian art and culture pavilion featuring special programs and local artists celebrating traditions and natural beauty of The Bahamas
  • Interactive family water play area with slides, water drums, fountains and dedicated space for toddlers
  • Covered gaming pavilion, a volleyball court and gaga ball pit, watercraft and bicycle rentals, nature trails for hiking and biking
  • Adult-exclusive beach with a dedicated dining area and six private cabanas for rent
  • Kids’ club for children 3 to 12, managed by DCL counsellors and including a splash pad inspired by The Little Mermaid, with shade and dining
  • 20 premium family cabanas available to rent, including four double cabanas for larger groups
  • New Port Adventures in partnership with local tour operators to take guests beyond Lighthouse Point to explore the rich culture and breathtaking beauty of Eleuthera

Summer 2024 DCL itineraries will be available to reserve starting on March 30, 2023. Visit Disney Cruise Line for more information on the destination and itineraries.
