There wasn’t too much going on in Frontierland, New Orleans Square, or Critter Country today, so we decided to hop on The Sailing Ship Columbia to look at the crowds.

People enjoyed the afternoon over on Tom Sawyer Island. This area is only accessible by taking a raft over to the middle of the river. Over in this area, you can search through pirate caves and trek over unique bridges.

This is the line to board the rafts to take you to Tom Sawyer Island.
