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.

Pick Your Path 

You’ll find adventure aplenty around every corner of the island—one of the world’s last pirate strongholds. During your self-guided expedition, be on the lookout for some of these legendary landmarks:

  • Enter, if you dare, a dark and foreboding cavern haunted by ghastly apparitions inside Dead Man’s Grotto.
  • Enjoy the scenic view near Tom and Huck’s Tree House hideout.
  • Bounce across a rope bridge and uncover hidden secrets in Smuggler’s Cove.
  • Climb to the peaks of Castle Rock or descend below the surface to find a subterranean treasure trove.
  • Unearth a mass of pirate loot at the Treasure Dig.
  • Inspect the ingenious gears and inner workings of the Blacksmith Shop.

Easy-to-read, posted maps ensure you always know where you are—and where you’re going—during your island adventure.
