Tom Sawyers Island

[ Disney Vacation Planner ][WDW Home] [Animal Kingdom Attractions] [Magic Kingdom Attractions] [Epcot Attractions] [Disney MGM Studios Attractions]

At A Glance Kids adventure playground island in the middle of the Rivers of America.

The barrel bridge on Tom Sawyers Island

Tom Sawyers Island is located in the middle of the small lake within The Magic Kingdom, and is reached mainly by raft. The Island is strictly aimed at the kids, with labyrinths of tunnels, with twists, and plenty of hiding places. There are swaying rope bridges, stepping stones, and even an old style fort with a climbing area inside.

Kids will love the place, and can safely be left to expend a little energy on their own for a while, giving the adults a break to relax with a snack at "Aunt Polly's Dockside Inn" the small cafe on the Island, and watch the Liberty Stern-wheel paddle steamer or the Mike Fink Keelboats sailing around the island.

Tip: If you want Tom Sawyer's Island pretty much to yourself, head out towards the Island in the afternoon, just before one of the regular afternoon thunderstorms, because in general as soon as it starts raining people head away from the Island and towards the relative shelter of the under-cover attractions on the "'mainland" rather than heading for the shelter of the tunnels on the island itself. As a result when it stops, the island tends to be pretty much deserted for a while.

Note that Tom Sawyer's Island closes at dusk.
