Walt Disney himself designed this out-of-the-way retreat. You'll be transported by boat to Tom Sawyer's Island, and immersed into the homespun world of Mark Twain. There are dirt trails and creaky barrel bridges to explore, even fun spots like Harper's … see full wiki
When I was a little girl, I wanted to go to Tom Sawyer Island every time we visited Disney. By the time I hit fourteen, I outgrew it all.
Tom Sawyer Island takes you far away from the hustle and bustle of Walt Disney World and right into a Mark Twain novel. Even as an adult, you just feel like rolling up your pants and walking around barefoot. (I may have outgrown Tom Sawyer's Island, but it hasn't lost its charm!) On the island you can find bridges and caves, and even a little picnic-type restaurant called Aunt Polly's Dockside Inn. Their apple pie is awesome!
The only way onto and off of the Island is via a short raft ride. You'd feel just like Tom and Huck if it wasn't for the outboard motor attached to the raft. You don't have to worry about your children getting lost, either, since there is now way other than the raft to leave the Island. If this is something you'd like to go to, be sure you go early, as the Island closes before any other attraction.
Like I said, I've outgrown Tom Sawyer's Island. Literally. The Island is created for little people, namely children, to run around and play on. It's a cute place to sit and rest while your children romp around on it, but it's definitely a pass when it comes to adults. You'll probably want to spend more time at the other rides, such as Splash Mountain.
