Attraction Overview

The Swiss Family Treehouse is a walk-through experience from the classic tale of the famous The Swiss Family Robinson book that came out in 1812. While walking over 116 stairs, you will get to explore what the Robinson family was able to build after salvaging materials in a shipwreck. This experience is for all ages who are up to explore an adventurous story. 

When entering, you will cross a bridge leading you to the giant tree the house is supported on. As you go up the tree, you will get up and close to the living quarters of the different family members who lived there. In front of each room and scene, you will see a wooden sign that describes what you see from this classic tale.

One of the best parts of this attraction are the views you get of the Magic Kingdom. From the varying levels in the Treehouse, you can see the busy side of Main Street, USA. The further you go, you’ll get a beautiful treetop view of Adventureland and Frontierland. If you’re looking for a magical sight, make sure to stop by The Swiss Family Treehouse at sunset. You will get to see the park have a mystical glow in a view you can’t get anywhere else in the park. 

Disney released the film Swiss Family Robinson, in 1960. Two years later, at the Disneyland Resort, The Swiss Family Treehouse opened at Adventureland. With success in California, this walk-through attraction was included in the opening of Walt Disney World in 1971. The Treehouse was placed neighboring the classic Jungle Cruise and Enchanted Tiki Room attractions, where it still lives today. 


Location & Wait Times

When entering the main bridge of Adventureland, you can find The Swiss Family Treehouse on the left-hand side. Right across the way is Sunshine Tree Terrace, where you can pick up a lovely ice cream float before exploring the treehouse. Additionally neighboring this attraction are Aladdin’s Magic Flying Carpets, the Enchanted Tiki Room, and the Jungle Cruise. 

The wait times for this attraction are typically non-existent. With this being a walk-through experience, you can expect quick walk-up availability. The trek of this attraction additionally is at your own pace. The Treehouse is a great location to take a step away from the fast-paced environment of The Magic Kingdom by going on a stroll. 

Queue Experience

The queue for this attraction is entirely outdoors and only partially shaded. You can expect to be outside for this attraction’s entire experience. On busier days such as the Winter or Spring Holidays, you will see this queue winding up and down the side of the Treehouse and Sunshine Tree Terrace.
