The holidays are very hectic when it comes to the Disneyland Resort.
The Adventureland Treehouse inspired by Walt Disney’s Swiss Family Robinson will open on Nov. 10 at Disneyland Park. This walkthrough attraction will pay tribute to the original treehouse Walt Disney and his Imagineers built in 1962 in honor of the movie “Swiss Family Robinson.”
Park visitors can see how the family fashioned this oasis among the trees using objects found around them. They can work together while also pursuing their own individual skills and talents. A small brook nearby powers the home’s iconic waterwheel and, via a pulley system, generates the energy needed to activate many of the family’s gadgets and inventions.
The daughter is an admirer of celestial bodies, and her astronomer’s loft provides a clear view of the night sky.
