    Re: Tom Sawyers Island

    Like the rest of Disneyland, it used to be so neat; they sold food at the Fort, had displays, and had caves you could explore: one that you could hear Injun Joe's voice calling...one that took you from the fort to the river, and ones I couldn't even fit down into . It used to have a susspension bridge AND a barrel bridge, an old mill, and the fort would fire cannon at the Columbia.

    If I could, I would run across that barrel bridge ALL DAY LONG!

    Re: Tom Sawyers Island

    All right. SOMEONE has to say it:

    IT'S NOT "TOM SAWYER'S ISLAND," OR EVEN WORSE, "TOM SAWYERS ISLAND." THE NAME IS: "TOM SAWYER ISLAND."

    That's it. Carry on.

    Dude, sometimes it pays to read the WHOLE thread. I suggest you start with post 24.

    HBG2 and Steve--Sorry for the mistake. I wanted to fix the title but I could not figure out how. I have edited the body of the post. Again, I am sorry if anyone is upset by my mistake.

    No worries. I don't think anyone is "upset." Just a quest for accuracy, that's all.

    These things are still there. The bridges are right by what may be my favorite spot at DL (particularly when it's in shade). It's great to sit on a bench and see a lot of territory and, often, no people (and most seen are on a passing boat, anyway).



    I was 7 the first time we drove across the country to DL, and my parents thought I'd never return from TSI, and my boy just turned 11, so it's still a part of every trip. It is sad that some elements have either aged badly (fort) or been lawyered out by the insurance suits (teeter-totter rock, castle rock steps that aren't wooden with rails but are cut into the rock).
    A lot of , er, noticeable children can be cured with time to run wild on an island.

    Cheers.

    Re: Tom Sawyers Island

    Do you think there will ever be a time when the fort will see some restoration? I'm not sure its that important but it would be nice to get some food and have one more thing to do on the island. I remember how cool the guns used to be. It would be cool to let WDI go wild and see what they could do with it.

    Re: Tom Sawyers Island

    When my family and I went to Disneyland last February, we had a great time visiting Tom Sawyer Island.
    The caves are GREAT (although I bashed my head like a big dope when I didn't duck low enough) and my son just loved it.
    In the midst of his playing, he got a good scrape on his knee...(Gosh it sounds like we really got beat up on the island doesn't it? LOL)
    But that's a great place for skinned knees and bumps on the head. It's a great place for adventure.
    Love the bottomless pit where you can still hear Injun Joe, and yes, sadly the Fort was cool to look at, but no entry.
    I talked to one of the CM (the rangers) and they explained it pretty much like it was said on this thread. Old Wood, no budget to repair.

    Sad...as I can see a future where Disney will probably demolish the Fort as opposed to fixing it. I hope I'm wrong.

    As long as we are correcting things in this thread, Cascade Peak was not part of TSI. You could see cascade peak from TSI, but it was on the big thunder side of the river
