Swiss Family Treehouse
Walk through the home of the shipwrecked family from the Disney classic “Swiss Family Robinson.” The branches of the huge (and very fake) banyan tree, known as “Disneyodendron eximus,” cradle the family’s heirlooms and contraptions. The treehouse has multiple levels that you need to climb. Thus, this attraction is not wheelchair or stroller accessible, and it can be tiring for some. The line of guests winds through slowly.

A fun walk-through, but it has a lot of stairs.

It was nice to walkthrough once. Will probably do it again after the rehab. Definitely watch the movie before you go!!!

Worth doing...once. It would mean more to you if you take the time to watch the Disney movie that it comes from. If climbing stairs is not a good thing for you, then grab a drink and a bench at the bottom while others in your party make the climb.

Be in shape to climb up this ride/site. It is not a must-do for us. We have done it when the kids are little, but usually avoid this ride.

I have to say we didn't enjoy this, we really didn't get exactly the reason for it honestly.

There's not a whole lot to this, but it's a nice different perspective of the park. My kids wanted to live in a treehouse after we went through this.

The views from the top are great ! Love looking down on Adventureland. There is never a line

It's not a trip to Disney without walking through the treehouse. I do like the Disneyland version better.

Not even my childhood memories make me want to do this ever again. Did it with my kids once. Will probably do it with my grandkids someday if it is still there. They can reuse the space for something more modern.

I can no longer climb, but it was great to see when I could.

If you watched and enjoyed the movie , this attraction is Spot On! It is not a ride, so you do have a bit of climbing up steps , and it can be physical work. Good to see at least once, if you enjoy all the Disney Classic Movies.

This is an underwhelming attraction. I love the movie, but did not find this to be a good use of time. Kind of disappointing.
Princess Sleepy gave this a rating of 2 on 06/16/2016 at 10:59:16 pm EDT
I loved this movie when I was a kid so I always enjoy visiting this. But its not a must-do for us every trip. Once in a while is good!

A little boring-lots of walking and stairs.
cbate717 gave this a rating of 4 on 06/13/2016 at 2:24:25 pm EDT
We had fun, and it made me want to read the book with my boys...but they were only interested in leaping around on the stairs and didn't really want to check out the details along the way. Too excited to do, do, do. They may have been more interested if they were familiar with the story.

Love this, but I'm a sucker for vintage Disney.
Only wish Disneyland kept their tree in its original Swiss Family form.

Another great exploring spot for kids. Although it can be lots of fun for adults too .....a great spot to view fireworks.

Very neat to see and you get a great view of the castle! I enjoyed it more than the kids.

It was good enough to do once, but no need to revisit it.

Everyone needs to see this at least once! Lots of climbing and allow extra time to look at all the inventions and contraptions in the exhibit.

Not worth the climb

Not worth the extra steps and stairs. Nothing to do but walk and look...no entertainment.

One of those things that you just have to do while you are there.
