Tom Sawyer Island Closes for Refurbishment
Tom Sawyer Island in Magic Kingdom has closed for a 2-month long refurbishment. Guest visiting the Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom should not expect this experience to be available from mid to late October through December 21st, 2018. Just in time for peak Holiday season!
Journey by log raft across the Rivers of America and discover an idyllic place influenced by the works of Mark Twain. Arrive at Tom’s Landing and embark on a self-guided expedition into the heart of early America.
Wander dusty dirt roads lined with sycamore and oak trees and amble across creaky suspension bridges. Navigate narrow passages amid secret mined caves and uncover an age-old fort. Along the way, follow in the pioneering footsteps of the frontier’s early settlers, during an era when Mark Twain and Tom Sawyer reflected an America coming into its own.
