Mark Twain and Walt Disney
November 30, 1835, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, now known as Mark Twain, in Florida, Missouri.
Walt Disney admired Twain’s writing and so the famous author’s name and image can be found scattered throughout Disney theme parks all over the world. Tom Sawyer Island – based on Twain’s classic The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – is the only Disneyland attraction that Walt personally designed! Disney World’s Magic Kingdom features a version of Tom Sawyer Island located in Frontierland.
Disneyland also features the Mark Twain Riverboat, which takes guests on a 12-minute journey around the Rivers of America. Both Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland have versions of the Mark Twain Riverboat as well. This riverboat was engineered by Disney Legend, Admiral Joe Fowler.
At Disney World, Mr. Twain appears in Epcot’s Audio-Animatronic stage show The American Adventure.
