Quiz: Walt Disney World’s Tom Sawyer Island

Tom Sawyer Island
Wander dusty dirt roads lined with sycamore and oak trees and amble across creaky suspension bridges. Navigate narrow passages amid secret mined 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 Mark Twain and Tom Sawyer reflected an America coming into its own.” – Walt Disney World Website

The original Tom Sawyer Island opened to the public at Disneyland Resort in 1956, and has the distinction of being the only attraction actually designed by Walt Disney himself.  Walt found himself unhappy with the island’s original design, so days before construction was scheduled to begin, he took the plans home and re-imagined the landscape design, creating the inlets, coves and overall shape that the island is known for today. Today, there are versions of this classic attraction at Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort and Tokyo Disneyland.  Take this fun quiz to test your knowledge of Walt Disney World’s Tom Sawyer Island.

  1. 100%!!! I got 100%!!! I was born modest…Fortunately, it wore off. ;)

  2. Fun quiz! I guess I did pretty good having only been to Tom Sawyer Island only once!! :)

  3. I’m surprised how well I did! The only Tom Sawyer Island I’ve visited is the Disneyland version, and that was many many years ago to the point that I don’t remember most of it! :cool:

    • You need to go to the one at WDW!!! :)

      • I always find myself without enough time. Magic Kingdom has a lot to offer. And this attraction closes early and requires a boat ride there, which eats up time.

        Think of it like Rafiki’s Planet Watch, only with much more stuff to do in the rest of the park.

        • Very true… and you know that they are closing Rafiki’s Planet Watch forever, right?!? So sad :(

  4. I thought this would go badly! ALthough to be fair i got the first one wrong by accident haha

  5. 70%, not bad for not cheating :)

  6. Yeah…. been sometime since I read the book, and also quite some time since I’ve been in the island…. :P

  7. I still miss Aunt Polly’s. Unpretentious but a great out of the way place to relax with a snack. We still have a cup that a sundae came in from years gone by.

  8. Not bad considering I’ve only been there once!

  9. Its time to visit again!!! :D
