Disneyland Reveals New Details About The Adventureland Treehouse

A family of five who possess magical and unique gifts that help them survive life in the jungle will soon be moving into the Adventureland Treehouse once Disneyland completes a two-year makeover of the 80-foot-tall man-made tree.

Walt Disney Imagineer Kim Irvine revealed new details about the Adventureland Treehouse backstory during a presentation to an Adventures by Disney tour group, according to Laughing Place.

“We’re getting ready to celebrate our 70th year of Disneyland and we decided to bring back the old treehouse,” Irvine said in a video posted by Laughing Place. “It’s now the Adventureland Treehouse inspired by Walt Disney’s ‘Swiss Family Robinson.’”

Irvine spoke about the Adventureland Treehouse retheme project to passengers on the $8 million Disney Theme Parks Around the World private jet tour during an exclusive presentation in Disneyland’s Golden Horseshoe, according to Laughing Place.

The 24-day globe-trotting trip to every Disney theme park around the world costs an eye-popping $110,000 per passenger. The luxurious jaw-dropping vacation — running from July 9 to Aug. 1 — includes visits to 31 sites and 68 meals along the way.

The new backstory for the rethemed Disneyland attraction finds the treehouse serving as a home to a family of five — each with a unique gift that helps them survive in the jungle.

The chef father has built a kitchen where meals cook themselves and “magical water” fed by a water wheel cools an ice box.

The musical mother has a player organ in her room that plays “Swisskapolka” in an homage to Disneyland’s original Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.

The teenage daughter is an astronomer and astrologer whose room near the top of the treehouse is filled with diagrams of the stars and models of the universe.

The naturalist twin sons — one an animal lover and the other a plant lover — share a room filled with monkeys, toucans and man-eating plants.

The Disneyland treehouse has changed ownership a few times over the past six decades.

The original Swiss Family Treehouse based on the 1960 Disney film opened at Disneyland in 1962. The Adventureland attraction was rethemed in 1999 as Tarzan’s Treehouse based on the Disney animated film from the same year about a boy raised by apes.

Disneyland closed Tarzan’s Treehouse in 2021 and announced plans in 2022 for a rethemed version of the attraction that would be once again inspired by the “Swiss Family Robinson” novel written by Johann David Wyss in 1812. A new Swiss Family Robinson television show is in the works for the Disney+ streaming service.

The Adventureland Treehouse has been closed and clad in construction tarps since September 2021 — an unusually long time for an attraction retheme. The 150-ton evergreen with 6,000 vinyl leaves even has its own tree species name — Disneydendron semperflorens grandis.

The Adventureland Treehouse transformation is scheduled to be completed later this year, according to Disneyland.
