The Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island sounds a lot like Tom Sawyer Island at the Magic Kingdom, but it does have a few differences.  The primary difference, of course, is that Tom Sawyer Island at the Magic Kingdom is more about Tom and Huck’s stories of Injuns, and the Pirate’s Lair at Disneyland is about, well, Pirates!

Despite that difference, the rest of the island is fairly similar.  You take a raft ride over to the island, and then you get off and go explore the island.  Check out the Pirate’s Lair, see what Dead Man’s Grotto (similar in my mind to Injun Joe’s Cave) is all about, and find the pirate loot at the Treasure Dig.

As the Disneyland website indicates, this attraction is good for Kids, Pre-Teens, Teens, and Adults, and is one of those types of attractions that you can use as a relaxing getaway from the crowd attraction.
