10 of the Best Places in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom to Take a Break

Tom Sawyer Island

3.  Tom Sawyer’s Island—Frontierland

Believe it or not Tom Sawyer’s Island has a few places where you can sit a spell and enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle of the Magic Kingdom.  You board a motorized raft over to the island, and there you can explore caves, take a fun walk on a barrel bridge, or a swinging bridge, and even visit an old Western Fort.  After you’ve played a while, there is an area near the loading area that once served snacks. Now there are vending machines and tables and chairs, where you can sit, relax and take in an excellent view of the Rivers of America, Liberty Square, the Haunted Mansion.  If you stay there long enough, you can watch the Liberty Belle Riverboat as it moves along, and wave to the passengers as they pass by.
