Inspired by Walt Disney’s 1960 movie, Swiss Family Robinson, The Swiss Family Treehouse is the first attraction you’ll encounter when entering Adventureland from Main Street USA. The Treehouse is a single-file walk through the elaborate treehouse built by the castaways on the branches of an enormous (man-made) Banyan tree.

Unfortunately, many guests mistake the treehouse entrance for the line to the Jungle Cruise, which is actually farther down the path to the left. They leave happy to have walked through the most elaborate queue ever, but turn mad when they learn that they haven’t gotten any closer to getting on one of the Jungle boats. (Don’t be like them.)

The treehouse is a fun diversion for kids, especially older-elementary and middle school students who know the Swiss Family Robinson story. Wait to visit until later in the evening, when the sun goes down and the crowd diminishes, so that you have time to linger, allowing your imagination to come alive in the shadows.


This walkthrough is very underrated as people simply walk right past it, I think this is actually a really cool treehouse that is very under appreciated. The environment is quite immersive and real and the details are very neat throughout the whole treehouse. It's a fun area that can easily be explored if you do have time. The best part is that there are never any waits and the view at the top is something to see, it's beautiful! Again, not that the best attraction by any means, but worth seeing if you have time. 6/10
Eh. It's just a big tree with some rooms located around it. Nothing too special and not a good way to rest your feet. There are lots of stairs, and I feel like all you really need to do to enjoy the tree is look at it. Then move on to something more fun.
Overall - 4/10
Such a waste of time. If you like walkthrough attractions give it a try, but don't feel bad if you passed it up. This tree needs to be cut down.
Lots of stairs.
