Disney Cruise Line Will Develop Another Private Bahamas Destination

Disney Cruise Line Will Develop Another Private Bahamas Destination
Scott Dylan

Disney Cruise Line is expanding its presence in the Bahamas. The cruise operator just scooped up a new property that will be used as a destination for cruise passengers. The property is located on the southern tip of an island called Eleuthera, about 75 miles from popular Nassau.

Disney is tentatively naming its new destination in the Bahamas Lighthouse Point. The name comes from a historic lighthouse that is located on the property that is being acquired. Disney is purchasing the land on a private basis. However, the company will actually be donating 190 acres to the government of the Bahamas. That land will be used for conservation.

This is actually the second Disney property in the Bahamas. Disney acquired a spot called Castaway Cay back in 1998. The new development on the island of Eleuthera will make Disney Cruise Line the only cruise operator to have two private destinations in the Bahamas.

Cruise passengers won’t be able to visit Disney’s Lighthouse Point until some point between 2021 and 2023, according to Disney’s proposed time frame.
