About six months ago, Disney shared news of Tarzan’s treehouse being remodeled. At that time, there were rumors that it could be Encanto themed. Now, you can learn more about the enhancements coming to the beloved treehouse in Adventureland.

Paying tribute to the original treehouse that Walt Disney and his Imagineers built in 1962 for the hit movie, Swiss Family Robinson, the Adventureland Treehouse inspired by Walt Disney’s Swiss Family Robinson will return in a fresh, new way at Disneyland park in 2023.  

The Adventureland Treehouse will showcase wondrous new environments created amongst the branches of a giant tree on the shores of the Jungle River. Guests will once again enter by the giant waterwheel and follow the wood rope stairways up, up, up into the boughs.

Here, you will find fascinating rooms that the family in this new story created for one another. From the mother’s music den (as depicted in the concept art above) and the young sons’ nature room to the teenage daughter’s astronomer’s loft, all things are fashioned from found objects, natural resources, and pure ingenuity.

For those who would rather stay on the ground or who have trouble climbing, the bottom floor will showcase a unique kitchen and dining room. You can also explore the father’s art studio, displaying hand-drawn sketches and paintings of each of the rooms. 

Walt Disney Imagineers are hard at work and delighted to bring this classic back in a fresh way, full of magic, enchantment, and wonder. We will share the opening date and more details about the new Adventureland Treehouse on the Kenny the Pirate blog as soon as they’re announced.

This is a great idea! I am happy to see that Disney is using a classic film for this re-theming rather than a current day movie that may likely stand the test of time.

I think another Swiss family Robinson tree house theme is a fantastic idea! It’s a classic movie and I love that the parks have decided to implement this into the Park!!
