Disney “Traveling Around The World” – Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland – Part 3 – Tom Sawyer Island


Ahoy there “World” travelers! If you have any explorers in your group, then hop on a raft and join us as we head over to Tom Sawyer island. This is a giant playground for kids. There are no computers, no audio-animotronic characters, no hi-tech gadgets, just an island of trails, paths, dark caves, bridges, and even a frontier fort to explore. Discover hidden treasures for those who care to do a little exploring; highlights include the mysterious jewels hidden deep in the dark caves, the creaky waterwheel at Harper’s Mill, the bouncy barrel bridge and Fort Langhorn with its twisting escape tunnel.


The wooded island is surrounded by the Rivers of America, and the only way to reach the island is aboard a raft that docks at Tom’s Landing near Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Children of all ages can relive the adventures of Mark Twain and it offers a great place for kids to let off some steam, and not have to wait in a long line to do it.

This is also a great haven for adults to unwind while sitting in rocking chairs and watching the hustle and bustle of the Magic Kingdom across the Rivers of America. Enjoy the views amidst the shade of the great oaks, pines, red maples, elms and sycamore trees on the island.

Tom Sawyer Island closes at dusk. Be sure to check the daily schedule for the exact closing time.
