Located in Eleuthera, the destination will complement Castaway Cay in the Abaco chain.
Nature and culture
As lighthousepointbahamas.com details, the design for Lighthouse Point will be influenced by the natural environment and the culture of Eleuthera and the Bahamas. Disney Cruise Line is working with the local creative community, including master artists Kevin Cooper and Antonius Roberts, to create an experience rooted in history and culture.
Permitting process under way
Construction will begin after an environmental impact assessment and environmental management plan are accepted by government, public consultation has occurred and all other necessary government permits and approvals have been granted.
Ready in 2022 or 2023?
According to the website, construction could start in 2020 with completion in 2022 or 2023.
Disney acquired the privately owned Lighthouse Point in 2019 and signed an agreement with the government of the Bahamas that guides the responsible and sustainable way the site will be developed.
