    Neither did I until Mystik told me

    "The wooded island is surrounded by the pastoral Rivers of America, and the only way to reach the island is aboard a raft that docks at Tom's Landing near BTMR.
    Sail across the river to romp through dense forests, forge rugged trails, cross swinging suspension bridges, explore mysterious caves, take shelter in a frontier fort built from unfinished timber and embark on mischievous, playful adventures—just like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
    Discover hidden treasures for those who care to do a little exploring; highlights include the mysterious jewels hidden deep in the dark caves, the creaky waterwheel at Harper's Mill, the bouncy barrel bridge and Fort Langhorn with its twisting escape tunnel."

    I wish that I had more information to share, but I just remembering walking on and then standing near the edge. There is seating available, but if I remember correctly it's not near the edge of the boat. I only done this once or twice, as it's a warm ride when I've traveled there. Speed is not the name of game with this boat.

    Tom Sawyer's Island is not near the Liberty Bell. It's entry is off to the left of where Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain are (with those two at your back). It's a little "raft" that takes you to the island. You stand (or sit in your w/c or scooter) over and back.

    The island has an area that used to sell refreshments, but no longer. It's a nice place though to still sit (on even ground, essentially a wooden deck) and enjoy the view.

    Again, there really isn't a whole lot to do there, but it's nice enough to poke around a bit as long as you avoid the mobility challenging areas. I know I'll not do those barrels again. That was really difficult for me to get across.






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!
