Not much to be said for it. It's just a big tree with some bamboo contraptions. Those people (the robinsons) must have been expert engineers.

Not bad, but not great. The walkthrough, while interesting, wasn't that interesting. The water system, which could have been great, was not functioning. The theme does fit excellently into Adventureland, however. This is not a good experience to try at the end of the day when your feet are tired, but is interesting earlier in the day. Children may be more interested than adults, although the adults are those more likely to be familiar with the Swiss Family Robinson. OK, but not fantastic.

This ok for small kids, but it is very boring for everyone else. This is a perfect thing to do to kill time. Not good for the elders.

Nicely themed, but thats all it got out of me. I did, though, get a excellent picture of Cinderella Castle and Space Mountain from the top.

Definatly a below average attraction. I am very familiar with the Swiss Family Robinson story and orgianally thought it would be something I could support. But after many trips through, I find it very disappointing. The very best part is the beginning,the working water, is the neatest part. The rest looks old. The paint is chipped, somethings are really worn from people touching, some things are faded. Even though the book is a classic, I dont think many kids are familiar. The majority are probably educated about the story from a family member. I just think it is time to either update, paint/replace and maybe even give a little background, or get rid of it. If there is no line and you have never walked through.. do it just for the experience.

nicely themed, but not my cup of tea. Its a walk through the tree that the swiss family robinson lived in. Had some nice stuff in it. But you walk up and down stairs in the heat.

Really I hate to bash attractions, but simply put, the Swiss Family Treehouse is abysmal! One thing I can’t knock the attraction on though is it’s appearance, as the lush, sprawling tree structure just fits flawlessly in with Adventureland’s jungle-like atmosphere. Also, this never has a line, but there is an obvious reason for that, and that is why this ride suffers greatly.

Now the Magic Kingdom is a gigantic park when compared to any park for sure. For anyone who has been there, they know how much pain your feet are in after a long day of fun. That being said, this leads me to this attraction’s major flaw- the attraction just consists of a long staircase around the tree. Already exhausted from walking around the park, walking up who knows how many flights of stairs is like army boot camp. Well, it probably wouldn’t be all that bad if they was much to look at, but really there is almost nothing to look at other than a few scattered bits of theming.

Just I really find no pleasure at all in this attraction and it is probably one of my least favorite, if not my least favorite, attractions in all of Disney. The effort required to navigate the many flights of stairs combined with the lackluster scenes the ride has to offer, makes this an attraction I almost always skip while at Disney. Heck, even if this thing had escalators instead of staircases, it would still be horrible since quite frankly, it’s just not all that enjoyable. I’d strongly recommend that you spend your time and energy elsewhere at the Magic Kingdom.

Its a tree house that should be replaced with something else IMO. I never saw the movie Swiss Family Robinson so I dont care for this attraction.

A great themed tree house that has a fantastic view and is intresting to see.Thats pretty much all you can say about it.I dont want Disney to tear it down but maybe move it in a diffrent spot.So they can put some other intresting things in adventureland.Also I think it would be nice if Disney let couples that just got married spend the night in the treehouse were the bed area is.It would be a beautiful thing looking off the balcony at the quiet sleeping Magic kingdom with the purple castle under the stary mightnight sky.

Im sorry, but I love this ride! Its a classic Disney experience, and its very fun walking around a huge tree-house. And it really is a house. I find it quite interesting to find out how they managed to live in that tree. Raise your ratings!
