Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island | Disneyland Description
Journey by log raft across the Rivers of America and discover a mysterious place rumored to contain long-lost treasure. Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island recalls the plucky adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn when they ran away to a remote island to live the carefree life of a pirate.
Upon your arrival, wander dusty dirt roads lined with sycamore and oak trees and amble across creaky suspension bridges. Navigate narrow passages amid secret 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 America was just coming into its own.
