**A Magical Day at Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point**

This past weekend was nothing short of enchanting as Disney Cruise Line unveiled its newest gem, Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, nestled on Eleuthera in the Bahamas. I had the privilege of being among the first to explore this private island, and I can confidently say, it’s an extraordinary experience that marries Bahamian culture with Disney’s uncanny touch of magic.

As soon as I stepped off the Disney Magic, the pristine sands and cerulean waters greeted me with a warmth only the Caribbean can offer. The main entrance of the island was a delight to behold, adorned with a stunning mural by renowned Bahamian artist Dorman Stubbs. His artwork, imbued with vibrant geometric shapes, is inspired by the cultural depth and vivacity of the Bahamas. The melody of steel drums and rhythmic calypso beats filled the air, making it impossible not to sway a little.

A short tram ride took us to the heart of the island, where the architectural design took inspiration from the natural beauty of the Bahamas, integrating bright and bold colors reminiscent of the island’s conch shells. Every detail, down to the shells pressed into the concrete walkways, was thoughtfully curated.

One of the highlights of my visit was Serenity Bay, the adults-only beach area. With plentiful lounge chairs, umbrellas, and private cabanas for rent, it was the perfect spot to unwind. Paired with a delectable lunch of grilled delights and local specialties like rice and peas, it offered a perfect blend of relaxation and indulgence.

However, the crown jewel of the day was the Junkanoo Celebration at the Goombay Cultural Center. Immediately, I was transported to the heart of Bahamian culture with a parade of colorful costumes and an infectious energy that swept across the island. The celebration, explained Warren Andrew Pinder, Co-chair of the National Junkanoo Committee, is a testament to the Bahamian spirit of freedom and joy, vividly brought to life for Disney guests.

The island also features varied workshops where guests can dive into local crafts, as well as artwork by artists like Kishan Munroe, reflecting the rich ecological and cultural tapestry of the Bahamas. And, of course, in true Disney fashion, beloved characters made appearances throughout the day, adding a sprinkle of magic to an already captivating experience.
