We are so excited to learn more about Disney Cruise Line‘s newest island destination – Lighthouse Point! This location will be found on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas and Guests will be able to sail here for the first time beginning in the summer of 2024. Lighthouse Point will be a unique celebration of Bahamian culture brought to life with the quality and service of a Disney vacation.
Guests arriving at Lighthouse Point will be greeted by distinctive, sweeping architecture that will include a bold style inspired by nature and created in partnership with local artists.
The curvilinear buildings will at first appear as Bahamian shells scattered along the shoreline. Guests will discover artistic expressions of the native flora and fauna of The Bahamas. They will also be able to learn about the history of Junkanoo parades.
Disney is working to respect the environment, as at least 90 percent of the destination’s electricity needs will be met by an onsite solar array. In addition, the pier was designed to avoid the need for dredging and elevated walkways will help limit impact on the landscape.

At Lighthouse Point, Guests will be able to enjoy pristine beaches, embark on adventures and discover Bahamian storytelling alongside favorite Disney characters. Lighthouse Point will offer activities and areas for every age group, much like Guests see at Disney’s other private island, Castaway Cay.
