Cross the Rivers of America on a short raft ride over to this wooded play area. Unlike other attractions in the park where you're sitting and watching, Tom Sawyer Island is basically a massive playground where kids can blow off any extra energy they have. On the island, you can imagine you're playing with Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher from the Mark Twain classics: Explore the two caves, climb up the hills or scramble across the barrel bridge. Go ahead and let the kids get lost. It really is an island — there's no other way on or off, save for the raft, so the kids aren't going anywhere.

This place is the hidden gem of the MK. When the park is packed out, head here! There are caves, rope bridges, tunnels, forts, you can watch out for intruders in the lookout tower, walk on floating barrels, explore the grounds, find paintbrushes to get on Splash or Big Thunder, and find interactive elements everywhere throughout the island. This whole place is just so well done and super immersive and well themed at every corner. Kids and adults should both love this vast, large, play area/relaxation spot. Again, when everything is crowded come visit Tom Sawyer! 7/10
this is my favorite escape! It never has a crowd or wait for the rafts. You can do so much. Rope bridges, caves and tunnels, search for paintbrushes, watch out for intruders from the lookout tower, barrel bridges, explore the fort, and see all kinds of interactive surprises! There's so much to do here! I love going here in the midday when the rides have long waits and the park is crowded. It's a hidden gem!

A well-themed, immersive, vast play area. Fun things include a barrel bridge, caves and a hunt for Tom's paintbrush. Definitely a good place to go for a midday break to let the kids release energy.
Magic kingdoms hidden gem!
Hope in never goes away!
