Substantial handrails with spindles and/or netting between railings and floors. There can be people ahead of you blocking the way forward as they look around.

Overview of the
Swiss Family Treehouse:

This is one of the few remaining Disney classics that have not been significantly changed over the years. In 1960 Disney’s movie called The Swiss Family Robinson depicted the life created by a family who became shipwrecked on an island. This attraction is a walking tour of a tree house that shows Disney’s version of how the Swiss Family Robinson would have lived.

Details on the Swiss Family Treehouse:

We’ve seen varying estimates, but one of our contributors counted 128 steps that guests must climb in order to view the tree house. The Banyon tree itself is massive and looks like a real tree, but it’s not. Hundreds of thousands of polyethylene leaves look convincingly authentic.

Guests are not permitted to enter the living quarters, but can view them from just outside each room. There are written plaques along the route that describe the family’s daily life. Some find it more attractive at night, especially the “jungle overlook.”

For those with visual impairment, consider what one of our readers had to say:

“For visually impaired people, the stairs change pitch and height through the attraction. Although there are rails, they change height and style throughout. Flooring contrast isn’t great and step edges are not clear.” —Jacquie Truswell
