Two years after Tarzan’s Treehouse at Disneyland Park unexpectedly closed, Disneyland has announced the opening date of the new Adventureland Treehouse attraction.
Adventureland Treehouse Opening Date
Adventureland Treehouse inspired by Walt Disney’s Swiss Family Robinson will open on November 10, 2023. Disney announced the new attraction on November 10, 2022.
The treehouse attraction at Disneyland was originally the Swiss Family Treehouse, based on the 1960 film “Swiss Family Robinson.” It opened at Disneyland on November 18, 1962, and was an opening day attraction at Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Paris. It opened at Tokyo Disneyland in 1993 and remains the Swiss Family Treehouse at Magic Kingdom, Disneyland Paris, and Tokyo Disneyland. Swiss Family Treehouse closed at Disneyland Park in 1999 and reopened as Tarzan’s Treehouse later that year.
Adventureland Treehouse will pay tribute to the original treehouse Walt Disney and his Imagineers built in 1962 in honor of the movie “Swiss Family Robinson,” but with a fresh story for the next generation of parkgoers to experience and enjoy.
Among the tree’s massive boughs, you’ll find the mother’s music den, the sons’ nature room, and the daughter’s astronomer’s loft. Firm on the ground will be a kitchen and dining room, plus the father’s art studio that will display hand-drawn sketches and paintings of each room, making the treehouse more accessible to guests who might not be able to climb the stairs.
As the story goes, the family fashioned an oasis among the trees inspired by nature and using objects found around them. Here, they can collaborate together while also pursuing their own individual skills, talents, passions, and interests.
Proud of what they’ve accomplished and eager to share their way of life with visitors from around the world, the family has rolled out the metaphorical welcome mat, inviting guests to climb up the stone stairway and explore their treetop abode.
Adjacent to the stairwell is the home’s iconic waterwheel, which is powered by a small brook that babbles nearby. The family created a pulley system to deliver water from the stream high up into the tree, generating the energy needed to activate many of their gadgets and inventions.
Disneyland released new concept art of the daughter’s room, which is nestled in the highest part of the home. The art is in the daughter’s own abstract style. An admirer of celestial bodies and their magnitudes, motions, and magic, her room provides a clear view of the beautiful night sky. It is here where she spends her time tracking stars, planets, and comets with her many telescopes, no doubt making new discoveries which she logs in her notebooks, sketches, and artistic recreations.
In the mother’s room, you’ll find musical instruments including a harp, lute, guitar, and organ, which she plays to fill the home with cheerful melodies.
The twin brothers have packed their room with an impossibly large collection of plants and animals, all living in harmony with one another. Filled with gadgets, appliances, and devices of his own invention, the father’s studio reflects the whole family’s affinity for exploring the unknown and designing the unimaginable.
