PHOTOS: Swiss Family Treehouse Reopens After Short Refurbishment at Magic Kingdom

The Swiss Family Treehouse has reopened today after a short refurbishment at Magic Kingdom. The attraction closed on March 12 and reopened this morning, March 26. During the closure, the attraction received new canopy netting and minor refreshments.

Trash cans sit near the entrance of the attraction with signs that remind guests of current safety precautions.

The sign that said “Out Gathering Supplies” has been removed and the normal sign that tells some backstory about the attraction is visible again.

Netting covers the walkway through most of the attraction, making guests feel like they really are in a treehouse.

The inside of the attraction seems to be the same as before the refurbishment.

A Cast Member puts finishing touches on props as the park opened this morning. Props used in the outdoor kitchen of the attraction are getting glued back down, meaning its likely that some repainting or minor refurbishments took place here as well.

The exit bridge is also covered in new rope netting in addition to the black netting we saw during the refurbishment.

The last several times we’ve visited the parks we always seem to forget about SFR. We’ll probably be back in 2022. I’m going to make a point of walking through this again. It’s been a long, long time.

I’ve been to both versions (Swiss Family and Tarzan). I hope they never take it down. I am sure it has inspired many whether constructing a simple playhouse for children or a full on home in the trees. I hope that this attraction will continue to inspire.
