    Re: Tom Sawyer Island Closed 2007

    I agree that the island is a shadow of its former self, but I don't know if the new island can be any better. Everything these days has to be so darn SAFE. That transfers to boring. We'll get something similar to bumper cars like Tuck n Roll's, or that speedy jumping jelly fish. Even playgrounds these days are ridiculously dull.

    I understand that, but if something gets updated, it's not always going to turn out like Haunted Mansion Holiday, which is an excellent makeover. Based on Disneyland's track record, it's probably going to turn out more like Winnie the Pooh.

    Fantasmic and the politcally correct 90s already ruined tom sawyer's island...if anything this will actual make much better use of the property by turning it into a richely themed playground of the future.


    Im hoping they eventually move Fantasmic to the DCA lagoon (with modifications to the show) and make it bigger and better than the disneyland version.

    Re: Tom Sawyer Island Closed 2007

    Now how in the HADES are they going to shuttle over 200 people across Rivers Of America in order to get them seated in time for the POTC-AWE premiere at Disneyland on TSI? Or should I say CJSI?

    It takes alomost 10 minutes to get across the river on those little rafts even when they are at full throttle!

    Oh well...now I guess I know where we will be going for the premiere!!!

    TSI Refurb set

    Sorry if this has shown up a million times but I could not find it.

    • 01/16/2007 -05/24/2007 Tom Sawyer Island

    What ever they decided on looks like it is going to happen during that time.

    Nothing else out of the norm as far as refurbs go.

    Re: TSI Refurb set

    Pretty funny....On Christmas Eve day my wife and I went over to TSI one last time and the CM working the raft was speaking Pirate. I asked him what he thought of the retheming and he said he liked the idea because from what he has heard is that it is going to be a general Piratization of the Island and not a Pirates of the Caribbean retheme. I told him I was taking tons of pics to remind me of TSI and he gave me an TSI Explorers map that they usually give to kids. It was pretty cool. Have pics I will post tomorrow!!

    Re: TSI Refurb set

    Thanks for the update. I will definitely have to videotape the island and take lots and lots of pictures before they close it.
