The Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort has so many amazing and popular attractions so it is easy to miss a few. From Space Mountain to Cinderella’s Castle you just might miss something that is delightful. Well here’s a hidden Gem… Tom Sawyer Island. Located across from Splash Mountain you’ll find this attraction, but you’ll have to take a log raft to get here. Usually a short wait, so it’s totally worth it. Also, a great spot if you need a break from the crowds. When you arrive at Tom’s Landing you can embark on a self-guided expedition into the heart of early America. Walk around dusty dirt trails with sycamore and oak trees and creaky suspension bridges. Navigate narrow passages amid secret mined caves and uncover an age-old fort. The caves were my personal favorite. You’ll basically be able to 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. After some time on the island you’ll actually feel like you’re in a National Park. It’s a very unique experience in the Walt Disney World Resort and definitely worth the visit, especially if your family packed your own lunches. It’s a perfect place for a picnic!
