Tom Sawyer Island allows Walt Disney World Resort Guests to wander dusty dirt roads lined with tall trees, explore whirling mills and amble across creaky suspension bridges. Navigate narrow passages amid secret mined caves and uncover a frontier fort. Along the way, follow in the pioneering footsteps of early settlers, during an era when Mark Twain and Tom Sawyer reflected a new nation coming into its own.

It’s an unforgettable expedition into the heart of the American frontier!

Tom Sawyer Island is a self-guided tour in the Disney Park, so take time to read the maps and enjoy getting to know the Island.
