12. Visit Tom Sawyer Island
Set the pace on your own one-of-a-kind adventure in the making when you escape on over to Tom Sawyer Island. Inspired by the classic works of great American writer Mark Twain, to get here is just a short ferry raft ride across Rivers of America. Then you’re free to embark on your own self-guided trek along different trails and pathways, trees, mining caves, a suspension bridge, and other shout-outs to early American rural life. Just some of the many points of interest to be on the lookout for include Harper’s Mill, Fort Langhorn, Potter’s Mill, Injun Joe’s Cave, and even Tom Sawyer’s Scavage Fort—a special themed play area for children under 12. Explore on your own watch, spending as much or as little time as you choose. A stop off to Tom Sawyer’s Island just may be the tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle you need to relax, rejuvenate, and revive your motivation for adventure to continue on with other great Magic Kingdom Park attractions.
