Offered here by All Things Mouse is a review and video of Tarzan’s Treehouse located in Disneyland. The treehouse can be found in the Adventureland area of the theme park, right near the Jungle Cruise.


Tarzan’s Treehouse is a walk-through attraction taking one into the world of the Disney animated movie Tarzan, released in 1999. In fact, this attraction was re-imagineered to its current theme and opened that same year.

Before becoming Tarzan’s Treehouse, the location was the home of the Swiss Family Treehouse. The original incarnation opened on November 18, 1962, two year’s after Disney released the associated movie – Swiss Family Robinson.

As part of a support for the pending Tarzan movie opening in 1999, the Swiss Family version of the attraction was closed on March 8th of that year. The attraction was then re-themed towards Tarzan and opened on June 23, 1999.

It has remained relatively unchanged since that time. Guests are able to walk-through (including many, many steps) the treehouse and visit the home of Tarzan. Disney offers this description of the attraction:

“Tarzan’s Treehouse tells the story of Tarzan’s wild jungle upbringing and showcases his improvised living conditions. Tour Tarzan’s home, built high in an 80-foot-tall tree, and see what it’s like to live on the wild side!”

Even if you don’t want to trek through the attraction itself, a Base Camp area is offered that will likely be of intense interest for the young kids in your group. The base camp offers the little ones a chance to explore and gives you the chance to relax.

If you do take in the treehouse itself, be sure to spend a minute or two at the top where you are treated to a spectacular view of the entire Disneyland Park.
