I admit that I was a bit skeptical when my family announced that they wanted to go to Tom Sawyer Island. Here we were at the Magic Kingdom and I really didn't want to walk around an island. As we got on the raft, the excitement began to build. They started to tell me about paintbrushes which were hidden over the island, and the first people to get them received a special prize. My children are a bit competitive in nature and I could tell that they were eyeing another family who had the same intentions. Once on the island, we split up and ran through the caves and looked in the brush and eventually the children had found the magical paintbrushes. With our possessions in hand, we were able to walk through the magical island in a more relaxed pace. I found it to be a nice get away from the often fast pace of Disney. We visited the fort, walked through caves, and even took the time to sit in a rocking chair with a wonderful view of Thunder Mountain Railroad, and played a game of checkers while we waited for our ride back to Frontier Land. The prize for finding the paintbrushes was a fast pass for all. I think the prize was just enjoying Tom Sawyer Island, an attraction that may sometimes be overlooked.
