Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point is in the Bahamas, and according to the Disney Parks Blog, will “celebrate the natural beauty, traditions, and artistry of the one-of-a-kind nation.” Concept art was also shown on stage and on the official livestream.

Disney has been developing a private Disney Cruise Line destination at Lighthouse Point for years, with construction on the project starting in March 2022 after its initial announcement in 2019. The “A Celebration of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow” presentation at Destination D23 provided us with a name for the project for the first time.

Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point will be located at the end of the island of Eleuthera and will use 90% solar power to aid in environmental preservation. It will be Disney’s second private destination in the Bahamas, joining Disney’s Castaway Cay. Disney Cruise Line will start sailing to Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point in 2024, with cruises visiting the destination currently being offered on the Disney Magic for June.

Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point is the latest development in what the Disney Parks Blog describes as “a period of growth unlike anything ever experienced before” for Disney Cruise Line.

Disney Cruise Line revealed details about their sixth ship, the Disney Treasure, in the days leading up to Destination D23 2023. The ship will be the same size and layout as the Disney Wish, which launched in 2022, and will feature “Coco” and Marvel-inspired dinner shows, a “Jungle Cruise”-centric lounge, and a version of the “AquaMouse,” introduced on the Disney Wish as the “first attraction at sea.” The Disney Treasure will embark on its maiden voyage on December 21, 2024. You can check out all of the details about the Disney Treasure here.

Disney Cruise Line also shared the name of its upcoming seventh ship during Destination D23 — the Disney Adventure. It will be the first Disney vessel to sail from Singapore and throughout Southeast Asia and will “feature the Disney service, storytelling, and entertainment everyone knows and loves,” according to the Disney Parks Blog. No date for the maiden voyage has been set, but the Disney Adventure is expected to set sail in either 2025 or 2026.
