Tom Sawyer Island

Tom Sawyer Island

An Attraction in Magic Kingdom

Last updated: June 17, 2024

At a Glance
Tom Sawyer Island is a getaway within the park. It has hills to climb; a cave, windmill, and pioneer stockade (Fort Langhorn) to explore; a tipsy barrel bridge to cross; and paths to follow. You can watch riverboats chug past. It’s a delight for adults and a godsend for children who want to cut loose after being closely supervised all day.

Tom Sawyer Island is underrated—we think it’s one of the Magic Kingdom’s better-conceived attractions. Kids revel in its frontier atmosphere, and it’s a must for families with children ages 5–15. If your group is made up of adults, visit on your second day or on your first day after you’ve seen the attractions you most wanted to see.

Although kids could spend a whole day here, plan on at least 40 minutes. Access is by raft from Frontierland; two rafts operate simultaneously, and while the trip itself is pretty efficient, you may have to stand in line to board both ways.

My 5-year-old son needed to run off some energy and he kept bumping into people in the crowded streets of Frontierland, so we veered from the touring plan and took the raft to Tom Sawyer Island. I thought it was a playground (we never bothered to head there before), but it was the coolest area to explore for our whole family! Unlike the Boneyard at Animal Kingdom, Tom Sawyer Island was truly an attraction. Very few people were there, which meant I got amazing pictures of my kids without strangers in the background, and the buildings, tunnels, and fort were so fun to explore! My kids asked to go back here the next day, and we did!
