Swiss Family Treehouse Description

Swiss Family Treehouse disney worldExplore the ultimate treehouse—and behold breathtaking views—in Swiss Family Treehouse: inspired by the classic Disney film.

Embark on a breezy walk-though tour of the Robinson’s famous home nestled high inside a towering tree.

Cross a bridge at the foot of a large leafy tree and climb handcrafted wooden stairs as you explore the famed living quarters of the Swiss Family Robinson and learn of their island adventure.

Discover open-air rooms—brimming with a bevy of 19th-century articles salvaged from the famous shipwreck—including:

  •  The Living Room Mahogany furniture, dishware and an organ mingle alongside the large wheel from the shipwrecked Swallow ship.
  • The Kitchen and Dining Room A clamshell sink, a volcanic stone hearth and oven, and a table with benches are just some of the more modern conveniences you’ll see.
  • The Crow’s Nest See the living quarters of sons Fritz, Ernst and Francis, complete with hammocks, a ragged chest and strewn clothing.
  • Study/Library Home to antique books, a desk, a handmade bamboo chair and a lantern, this is where the Robinsons came to feed their minds and their souls.
  • Jungle Lookout Boasting panoramic views from the top of the tree, this perch provided the Robinsons with serenity during their stay on the island.

At the base of the tree, a large wooden wheel gathers water from a stream and carries it up to the various rooms inside the treehouse.
