Accessible only via rafts that are launched in front of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Tom Sawyer Island offers a relaxing escape from bustling Frontierland. Take the motorized raft across the “ Rivers of Adventure” and dock at “Tom’s Landing” to begin your island expedition.
Opened at Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park in 1973, this walk-through attraction allows you to explore the island at a leisurely pace, wander through spooky caves, relax on rocking chairs, stroll through wooded trails, cross a unique barrel bridge, view a water wheel in action and travel across a swinging suspension bridge for a visit to Fort Langhorne (named after Samuel Langhorne Clemens).
PARK TIP: Tom Sawyer Island typically opens later than other attractions at Disney’s Magic Kingdom and closes at dusk. In addition, Tom Sawyer Island is not wheelchair accessible.
