Swiss Family Treehouse Walk-Through

Swiss Family Treehouse is an anytime attraction that offers some pretty amazing views of Magic Kingdom. This attraction is based on the book Swiss Family Robinson, which first debuted in 1812 and was turned into a classic movie in 1960.

When you get to Adventureland’s main entrance, the bridge for Swiss Family Treehouse will be on your immediate left.

As you cross over the bridge, you will begin to see the different levels of the treehouse above you.

There are several landings where you can stop and observe different rooms. You can also take a moment to catch your breath if needed.

A water wheel sits near the entrance of the Swiss Family Treehouse.

It’s kind of neat to see it in action.

There are several different living spaces as you make your way up.

Here are the boy’s sleeping quarters.

When you get to the very top, you might pause to take in the views of Magic Kingdom. You’ll see Space Mountain in the distance.

Nowadays, that view has changed to Space Mountain and Tron.

And if you look in the other direction, there’s Splash Mountain, which will eventually be Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

With her new paint job, Cinderella Castle stands majestically within view as well.

As with most things in life, what goes up must come down. But, thankfully, coming down, in this instance, is easier than going up.

When you reach the bottom, there’s a library.

Notice the ship’s log and other items recovered from the wreckage.

Lastly, there’s a kitchen, the most cheerful room of the Swiss Family Treehouse, as kitchens should be.

After completing your pilgrimage, you’ll cross another bridge to the main walkway in Adventureland.
