Tom Sawyer Island
Located across the Rivers of America in Frontierland and accessible only by raft, Tom Sawyer Island offers children a fun place to run and explore and blow off steam, while grown-ups can sit and sip a cool drink.
Sawyer Island -- A giant-sized
playground geared to youngsters, Tom Sawyer Island is inspired by the
famous works of author Mark Twain.
Guests board a motorized raft at a dock located just at the foot of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad over to the island. The raft ride takes only a few minutes. At the dock on the island, guests can sit in rocking chairs and play checkers, or begin to explore the grounds. Maps are posted periodically -- be sure to check where you want to go, as paths meander every which way.
There are dark passageways and caves to explore, an old mine, a scary, bouncy, rope bridge, a barrel bridge (below right), and the focal point, an old-fashioned fort, named Fort Langhorn (Twain's real name was Samuel Langhorn Clemens). Kids will have fun exploring all four corners of the fort, playing with the noisy air rifles and cannons, then venturing into the dark "escape tunnel."
Keep your eyes open for Hidden Mickeys!
Tom Sawyer Island usually opens a little later
than the rest of the park, and it normally closes at dusk.
Restrooms are located at the raft landing and also inside Fort Langhorn.
Guests must be ambulatory to get around Tom Sawyer Island -- with its rugged terrain and winding paths, it is NOT wheelchair friendly.
Disney Characters are typically
not found on Tom Sawyer Island, however this whole area is a kids' paradise,
with plenty of caves to explore, hills to climb and an old fort to play
Check your daily Times Guide for times and locations of character meet and greet opportunities elsewhere in the Magic Kingdom.
Guest Comment " I can't stress how relaxing and wonderful Tom Sawyer Island is. There are so many great places to sit and relax. My husband and I watched as our daughter ran and climbed and burned off some energy. I wonder how many people have inadvertently scared other people when trying to scare their family members in the caves? It's a good time."

Tom Sawyer Island opened in the Magic Kingdom
