Today, Disney Cruise Line shared new details about their upcoming private destination in Eleuthera, Disney Lookout Cay at a Lighthouse Point.
Guests will first arrive at Mabrika Cove. “Mabrika” means “welcome” in Taino, the language of the Lucayans, who are considered the indigenous people of The Bahamas. While the language is no longer used, a few words remain – one of them being “Mabrika.” At this colorful arrival point, guests will immediately experience the warmth of Bahamian culture.
This next space is guaranteed to be the most festive on the island! The Goombay Cultural Center will embody the essence of “Junkanoo,” a Bahamian festival filled with joyous music and vibrant parades that will come to life in many ways across Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point. Goombay is one of the traditional music styles of The Bahamas, involving singing, dancing and drumming. The brilliantly colored cultural pavilion and its Junkanoo-inspired arch will invite guests to embrace the traditions of The Bahamas, along with the sights, sounds and spirit of the country’s signature festival.
There will be plenty of family entertainment in store at Triton’s Trumpet Stage. The gazebo’s name is inspired by one of the stunning natural wonders found among the Bahamian beaches – a large, spiraled seashell commonly called “Triton’s Trumpet.” And for you Disney fans, if Triton sounds familiar, you might recognize it as the name of the mighty king from the beloved Disney animated classic “The Little Mermaid.”
Treasures of Eleuthera will be the retail shop featuring locally made gifts and artisan crafts. The shop will spotlight Bahamian artists through an array of unique items that families will be able to bring home with them as a special keepsake.
Serenity Bay will be a relaxing retreat exclusively for adults 18 years of age and older. At Disney Lookout Cay, Serenity Bay will feature a tranquil beach experience with a dining area and private cabanas available for reservation.
