We told you last week that The Walt Disney Company made a $1 million dollar donation to assist with relief efforts in The Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian ravaged them.
Disney Cruise Line is continuing to help with relief efforts by loading the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy with much-needed supplies such as bottled water, food, and toilet paper and dropping it off at Castaway Cay for distribution in Abaco and Grand Bahama.

Hurricane Dorian was the slowest and strongest hurricane to ever hit The Bahamas.
Last week, the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy dropped off food and water at Castaway Cay for distribution in Sandy Point on Great Abaco Island, which was heavily impacted by Hurricane Dorian and is home to many of the crew members. Both ships are scheduled to make additional deliveries in the coming weeks.
Disney Cruise Line has stated that they anticipate re-opening Castaway Cay to guests on Thursday, September 12, as long as they’ve been able to complete necessary repairs related to the tropical storm conditions experienced last week. Guests who go ashore will see signs of the recent storm’s passing and some experiences on the island may be unavailable.
