In the past week, Disney Cruise Line’s tantalizing previews of Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point have set the Cruise world abuzz. From exclusive merchandise and delightful dining options to vibrant entertainment and meticulously detailed maps, it’s been thrilling to watch this new private island take shape, especially with its grand opening just a month away!

However, the excitement hasn’t come without its share of skepticism. In a spirited discussion on the Disney Cruise Line forum at, reactions have been a mix of enthusiasm and disappointment. If you love debates, this one is for you! One user, CampbellzSoup, expressed a sentiment that many Disney enthusiasts might find surprising: the island, as it stands, feels a tad underwhelming. Missing the razzle-dazzle of iconic Disney pool areas or water slides, they argue that the island needs more of those beloved, immersive Disney attractions—think along the lines of a Moana-themed water park to truly WOW the visitors. Compared to other private islands like Royal Caribbean’s Coco Cay, they feel Lookout Cay falls short on the magic Disney is known for.

In stark contrast, other forum members find charm in the island’s serene and unspoiled nature. Poster auntlynne champions the simplicity and natural beauty of Lookout Cay, noting a personal preference for the pristine Bahamian waters over crowded, and often commercial, water slides and plastic tubing. They believe that Disney has struck the right balance for those seeking relaxation over thrilling adventures.

Discussion about the island’s layout has also sparked curiosity. Dug720 raised concerns regarding the placement of private cabanas, particularly how close they are to family areas which might infringe upon the adults-only serenity sought by many.

Yet, for all the debates, there remains an abiding sense of anticipation and hope. Poster OKW Lover succinctly captures this sentiment, awaiting their own visit to form a final judgment. They express optimism that Disney can and will weave its signature magic and create an unforgettable experience, despite some critical observations from other fans.
