Magic Kingdom – Tom Sawyer Island

This manmade island is located in the center of the Rivers of America. To reach this island, you’ll need to hop aboard one of the Tom Sawyer log rafts, which depart regularly. The island is open during daylight hours only. Kids especially will love exploring Injun Joe’s Cave, Harper’s Mill, and Ft. Sam Clemens. The island is filled with dirt paths to follow, bridges to cross, and lots of places to explore. Many park visitors find the island a perfect refuge on hot summer days when crowds are filling up the rest of the park. Enjoy some shade and treats while the kids explore this well conceived island attraction.

There is no height requirement for this ride.

ages 2-4 Most of the areas are designed for older children.

ages 11-15 This is a great place to let kids blow off steam as they’ll love exploring the different paths of the island.
ages 16-adult While there are some nice details and touches, adults should probably save Tom Sawyer’s Island for after they’ve visited the bigger attractions.
senior citizens Considering the high amount of walking and kid-oriented activites it’s not particularly recommendable.

Disney Tip

This attraction rarely attracts long lines, but it is still best to avoid between 1:00p-3:00p.
