Swiss Family Treehouse is an attraction at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. The walk-through attraction is centered around a giant treehouse where everyone can hear and see various scenes based on the Disney movie Swiss Family Robinson.

History[]

Before he wrote the book called Swiss Family Robinson, Johann Wyss and his kids imagined what it would be like if they were stranded on an island. So together, they came up with lots of crazy adventures for the Robinsons. Almost two years after the Disney film Swiss Family Robinson was released to theaters, in 1960, Disneyland introduced the Swiss Family Treehouse to Adventureland. When the Magic Kingdom opened at Walt Disney World Resort on October 1, 1971, the Swiss Family Treehouse was one of the original attractions of Adventureland. The tree, while intended to look real, is actually made up of steel, concrete, and stucco, stretching 60 feet (18 m) tall and 90 feet (27 m) wide. Yet, it looks exactly like the one in the movie.

Trivia[]

  • In Disney's Sing Along Songs, Disneyland Fun, the Swiss Family Treehouse sign was seen during the song "Following the Leader".
