Disney Cruise Line announces new destination in the Bahamas
At D23 Expo on Sunday, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D'Amaro shared news and updates from Disney theme parks and beyond, including a trove of new adventures in store for Disney Cruise Line guests
D'Amaro shared that work has begun on Disney's second island destination in the Bahamas, located on the island of Eleuthera at a place called Lighthouse Point, unveiling new details and concept art for the D23 audience.
Disney is working closely with Bahamian artists and advisors to create a destination that represents the natural beauty and rich culture of the Bahamas, brought to life through Disney storytelling and the unparalleled service of local cast and crew.
New renderings show a vibrant beach retreat infused with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry. In addition to the pristine beaches, families will enjoy a recreation center, dining, shopping, a water playground, a cultural pavilion and more.
Disney has committed to develop less than 20 percent of the property; supply 90 percent of the site's power from solar energy; employ sustainable building practices; and donate more than 190 acres of privately owned land to the government. Environmental management programs have already been established and will continue throughout construction and into operation.
