||Exploration adventure set
aimed at children, with plenty of places to clamber round
and generally explore. Allow 30 to 45 minutes for children
to explore the island thoroughly
Treasure Island is the northern islet of the pair
forming Adventure Isle, and is a great place for children who
will love exploring the tunnels and underground caves on the islet,
clambering around the precarious looking rope bridges, and exploring
the part wrecked galleon (Peter Pan's Pirate Ship).
Spyglass Hill raises itself aboue the main Adventureland
area, and provides guests with a good view of the surrounding
theme park, so remember to take your camera. As with most high
points in Disney theme parks strategically placed obstacles block
the view of areas that Disney would rather people didn't see (they
tend to be the functional areas that don't add to the Disney magic,
but are needed to support it).
Ben Gunn's Caverns are filled with stalagtites and
stalagmites, while Dead Man's Maze offers an underground network
of tunnels, beneath a spectacular waterfall, illuminated by glowing
The galleon (Peter Pan's Pirate Ship) offers some
good opportunities to take pictures of children playing around
with the ships wheel and rigging, whilst on the lower deck a small
cafe (Captain Hooks Galley) serves coffee and light refreshments,
so can be an ideal opportunity for adults to have a few minutes
break while children spend a little time expending excess energy
(assuming they still have some left).
The theming for Treasure Island is based on the Treasure
Island story by Robert Louis Stevenson, and Peter Pan by J. M.
Barrie, both of whom are Scottish novelists.
