The Adventureland Treehouse will return to Disneyland in 2023

Category: Travel

Guests to Disneyland have noticed the absence of the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse. The attraction will reopen in 2023 with a new look and some new additions. The waterwheel will once again be the point of entry and the rope stairway is also remaining, although updated.

Once inside the treehouse, guests can explore the various rooms built by the family and inspired by the 1960 film Swiss Family Robinson, which starred John Mills, Dorothy McGuire, James MacArthur, Janet Munroe, Tommy Kirk, and Kevin Corcoran. The original treehouse in the park was built in 1962 and has been a favorite place for guests to explore over the years.

The upstairs of the treehouse includes the rooms inspired by the Robinson sons and daughter as well as the mother’s music den. The downstairs includes the dining room and kitchen, as well as the art studio used by Mr. Robinson.


Treehouses have been favorite excapes for kids for ages. They have been clubhouses for private clubs, escapes from family responsibilities, places to read and play, and just a special retreat from the main house. Keeping the treehouse part of the park was a necessity. It might even inspire kids and their families to build their own treehouse in their backyards.

The Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse is located on the banks of the Jungle River.
