Climb the stairs of Swiss Family Treehouse and transport yourself into the lives of the Robinsons, a family of six who were tossed onto a deserted South Seas island after a shipwreck. During your visit to this immensely detailed attraction, you’ll explore the well-improvised living quarters and everyday effects of the parents and their three boys. There’s even a bucket pulley system that brings water up to the family’s home.
There aren’t any fancy ropes or ladders like in other play areas, but most children are mesmerized by this “treehouse.” It’s a good one to save for when you need a break from the lines and crowds below or when the kiddos need to rejuvenate their imaginations. Swiss Family Treehouse does involve a lot of stair-climbing, so if you’re looking for a way to rest your legs, go next door to Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. It is a Frog Family rule to climb the stairs of Swiss Family Treehouse at least once on every trip. Of course afterward, we have to hear it from Tad and Lily about how their treehouse at home doesn’t match up, but it’s a great 10 minute mental “escape” from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the park.
