I hope it's not because I am in my late 40s, ugh, but when I was growing up The Swiss Family Robinson was one of my favorite films. It still is, of course. So when I went to WDW the first time and I was able to walk through (climb on) a REAL actual 3-D recreation of the Treehouse from that film, I was more than a little thrilled. I loved it. Even today, as an adult, I get the same frisson of fun that I always got. It's one of the better attractions and it's all down to the details. They are all there. I could spend 15 minutes looking at the kitchen alone! You don't have to know the film to enjoy the Treehouse, but perhaps it might help a bit. So, as a (Swiss) family, why don't you sit down together around a screen that allows you to watch Disney+ and take in the original film? It will pay off in spades!
Pros:Fully-detailed 3-D recreation of the treehouse/film set. It's exciting. You climb up pretty high. (Without a sense of being up high though.) The views of the park from up there are terrific too.
Cons:Some people seem to be confused why it is there at all. Do yourself and your family a favor and see the film first.

This isn't a typical attraction. You will either like it and appreciate it for what it is or you will hate it and think it's a waste of time/space. I happen to like this attraction. It is a nice little escape from the park and a cool place for kiddos to explore and see replicas of items they may not have seen before. Its a nice little respite if you need it during a busy day.
Pros:Quite usually fairly empty, cool stuff to look at, kinda feels exploratory
Cons:not really anything to explain what stuff is can be boring to some.

I know some people don’t like it because it has been around a long time and it’s from an old movie from the early sixties!! But I actually love this old treehouse it holds fond childhood memories for me!!! I hope they keep it forever!! Sure it may need to be updated!! That would be nice but I hope they keep this wonderful old Treehouse!!!
Pros:It is great for a relaxing climb, and to enjoy all the wonderful scenery!! It is a very sentimental place and makes you feel like a kid again!!
Cons:I guess it is a little outdated, but that’s part of its charm!! Maybe someday they will get around to updating it but I hope they never get rid of it

It very nice place for those who remember the movie.
Pros:It has a lot in common with the movie
Cons:not disable friendly and way too many stairs. You have to go all the way through up and down and a lot of stairs just to get to the end.

We literally walk past every time. Just tear it down and build something fun. Nobody wants to climb a tree house up and down stairs for no ride or entertainment. I mean you might, but seriously just build something else in its place.
Pros:Good views of the park, especially during fireworks. But you can’t stop because of people behind you so really what’s the point?
Cons:Lots of walking, climbing stairs, no currently known characters or story for that matter (no kid knows who the Swiss family Robinson is anymore), waste of time and space, and it’s just plain boring.

Swiss Family Treehouse is ok. It’s not anything you have to do. Worry about the bigger attractions. If you have some time and want to get away from the crowds, this is a perfect place to go. It’s hidden in the trees with some great history and secrets.
Pros:- Great place to get away from the crowds - Nice secrets and history
Cons:- Nothing to worry about - Loads of stairs

Now I know a lot of people say this is boring, but I find it sweet and a great break from all the rides and the heat. I love the old movie, and this is like being there. It is much better than the updated Tarzan tree house in Disneyland. If you don't want to climb stairs, then avoid it.
Pros:Different from your typical attractions. Cool to look at.

This is always on our ‘must do’ list, mostly for nostalgia, but also you get some great views from the top! There’s not usually a wait, so it’s a nice break from the crowds and you can check out all of the cool details in the tree. It feels immersive and puts you into the jungle itself, so you can feel like you’ve really escaped into adventureland.
