FOR 130 YEARS, TOM SAWYER has been among the best-known characters in American literature. For 50 of those years, he's also had his very own island at Disneyland, one of the few attractions there designed by Walt Disney himself. But he can't match the movie-star appeal of a rubber-spined pirate named Jack Sparrow.
Disney officials are reportedly considering a makeover for Tom Sawyer Island, which has been part of Disneyland almost since its opening in 1955. The website Miceage.com, which is devoted to Disney news, quotes insiders as saying the park may spend $28 million to turn the attraction into a pirate-themed island in time for the third installment of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie series. Disney officials neither confirm nor deny the rumors.
