When Walt Disney was planning DISNEYLAND, one of the areas he was most interested in was Tom Sawyer Island, a rugged playground that would replicate the Wild West of his imagination as a child. Unlike other areas of his Magic Kingdom, guests would control their experience on the island.
So Mr. Disney wanted the island to be perfect. Unfortunately, the team of imagineers working on the project were not able to satisfy Walt's vision. Mr. Disney grabbed the plans and took them into his office. When he returned, he had laid out the island of his dreams. An island that still remains just as Walt dreamed it.
