Adventureland Treehouse at Disneyland Park will officially open on November 10, Disneyland Resort announced on Wednesday.
The treehouse first opened in 1962 as the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse and was later re-themed to “Tarzan’s Treehouse” in 1999. Since the early days of the pandemic, the treehouse has been closed for refurbishments.
The attraction, now called the Adventureland Treehouse, will include new rooms based on different family members. A small brook nearby helps power the home’s iconic waterwheel. A pulley system generates energy needed for the family’s gadgets and inventions.
The Daughter’s Astronomer’s Loft will be located in the highest part of the home, which highlights her “affinity for tracking stars, planets and comets with her many telescopes.”
The new areas will be the “mother’s music den, the young sons’ nature room, the teenage daughter’s astronomer’s loft, the father’s art studio, and an ingenious kitchen and dining room,” a press release said.
“Paying tribute to the original treehouse that Walt Disney and his Imagineers built in 1962 for the hit movie, “Swiss Family Robinson,” the Adventureland Treehouse inspired by Walt Disney’s Swiss Family Robinson will return in a fresh, new way,” Disneyland said in a statement earlier this year.
On the attraction’s official page, Disneyland describes the walkthrough attraction as:
Visit the Adventureland Treehouse, where a new family has moved in and created an oasis among the trees! While they’re off seeking a new adventure, they’ve invited you to explore each of the fascinating rooms they designed.
Everything is fashioned from found objects, natural resources—and pure ingenuity! Follow the wood rope stairways up, up, up into the boughs. Discover the mother’s music den, the young sons’ nature room and the teenage daughter’s astronomy loft. Adjacent to the stairway is the home’s iconic waterwheel, which generates the energy needed to power the family’s gadgets and inventions.
Don’t forget to check out the bottom floor, which showcases the kitchen and dining room. Stop by the father’s art studio and browse the hand-drawn sketches and paintings of each of the rooms, reflecting the family’s affinity for exploring the unknown.
