    How would YOU retheme Tom Sawyer's Island?

    Ok...I realize that MOST of us would like the Island left as it is, or at least restored to its glory days. BUT if YOU had to retheme it, what would you do? Post your crazy ideas here...

    My idea...

    To make the Island fit in with the rest of the resort, I say let's Pixar it. Woody's Fort, Cave of Aliens, Buzz's Barrel Bridge.... that kind of thing. It wouldn't be anymore out of place than a Pirate Play Island on the River's of America.

    I mentioned it in another thread - but make it NeverNeverland. Then you could have pirates, indians, caves, cool treehouses - it would be totally cool.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Poor Frontierland! Where are the new Western themed attractions? Things seem to be taken away more than added. And with Fantasmic! eating up the island at night, the location is severely limited in options. But I really think they should keep it part of Frontierland. If they truly let NOS have it with a Pirate theme, at least do something amazing with the old BBQ picnic area.
    Yeehaw!

    Make it "Lost child island".

    That way if you run into a bratty kid, you can have them exiled to the island until their parents can guarantee their unbrattiness!

    In case of "teenagers", just send them to "Mime School".
    Can't do too much damage if they can't yell.


    This has been a Filmways presentation dahling.

    And I know people love the Ranch, but that's prime realestate for a ride of some sort.

    Re: How would YOU retheme Tom Sawyer's Island?

    My suggestion would be "Mystery Island." It would be a place of magic and surprises. I think it would be fun to change it up at times. During fall it could have a Haunted feel. During the rest of the year, it could still be a place where you did not quiet know what to find there. The key is to think as a kid would think. Kids love to look for buried treasure. Kids love to find mysteries or ghosts. All those could be on the island, even the presence of Huck and Tom!

    Re: How would YOU retheme Tom Sawyer's Island?

    I don't think it needs re-theming - just REBUILDING. I used to have a blast on Tom Sawyers Island when I was a kid! It was one of my favorite places to 'run around' when I was a 'youngin'.

    I'd add more Frontier to it, and leave it as it is. Never re-theme it.

    A couple of pot plants, a lava lamp and mirrors - LOTS of mirrors. It just screams good taste.

    If changes are going to be made I think that this idea has potential.

    I really don't want to see it changed, just cleaned up and reorganized. Reopen the fort, etc.

    Re: How would YOU retheme Tom Sawyer's Island?

    I heard it was going to be rethemed as "Eminem's 8 Mile Island" featuring

    Drive by Shootin' Gallery
    Goofeez Phat Car Bounce
    Big N-Jin J's Crack den
    Lil' Becky's Hen House Revue
    Tag-a-rock
    LayZ Drawl Ranch
    Po Po on Parade
    Eminemporium Souvenir Trailer Park
    Playa Academy
    B. Rabbit's Grab N' Go
    (where special "E ticket" Food Stamps are OK for liquor and cigarettes)

    I don't really like the idea- maybe if they added some face painting booths it could be fun...
