Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island at Disneyland

The Pirates of the Caribbean take over Tom Sawyer Island at the CA park


Tom Sawyer Island was one of the original attractions that debuted at Disneyland's opening in 1955. In 2007, Disney revised the attraction by adding a Pirates of the Caribbean overlay. According to the fanciful backstory, scoundrels and scallywags from the Pirates ride and films have taken over the island and turned it into their own lair. The island, with its caves, paths, and bridges, still offers guests, especially younger children, a great place to explore and burn off energy; but, as you'll see in this photo gallery, with danger lurking around every bend, they'll need to tread carefully.
