    Ditto. I would love to see it come back because it was more intricate and more compelling. It was appealing whether you had seen the film or not.

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    ORDDU: Well, I happen to be one of the few who prefers Tarzan's Treehouse because I've been having a (secret) affair with my favorite man in a loin cloth for several years, now. It was bad enough that they discontinued his stage show at the Animal Kingdom in Florida so they'd better not mess with my man and me again!! After all, where else are the two of us supposed to rendezvous whenever we want to swing?

    ORGOCH: So just what kind a drugs ya been on lately, ya crazy theme park hag?! I'd be careful if'n I was yerself--spreadin' false rumors 'bout havin' a 'secret' affair with some poor sap who don't even know yer alive!! If'n he hears how ya been assass'natin' his charater, you'll wish ya was DEAD!!!

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    While a "Swiss Family Robinson" remake will never live up to the original, I hope it happens specifically so the Treehouse can return to Disneyland. The slated director, Jonathan Mostov, has said "SFR" was his favorite film as a kid, so maybe he'll do it right.

    I really miss the superior Swiss Family Treehouse design, atmosphere, the gadgets, the water wheel and especially the Swisskapolka! And they could always play up the pirate traps and animals in a refurb to give it something new.

    I'll agree with this. Disneyland should have the Walt classics and WDW the latter-day redos. Just swap the stuff!

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    At first I was disappointed about them changing the treehouse to Tarzan, but it's really grown on me. I do however miss hearing the Swiss Family music playing through Adventureland. I'd still have to say that I like Tarzan's treehouse the best.

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    Just curious, but...is the waterway still there that the old waterwheel drew from? Or is there room for one? I'm just wondering if this is even possible.

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    I don't think "The Robinsons" is a Disney film, so there wouldn't be a re-make of the tree to promote a non-Disney film.

    I wish they would retro-fit it though, it was much better before, like WDW's is better now.

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    I think the one thing that would make the Swiss Family Treehouse return is the success of the new film, or if Disney feels that they can launch a huge marketing blitz over a walk-through attraction to coincide with the movie premiere.

    As for it returning, I'm not sure if I really care all that much. I loved the original Swiss Family Treehouse, because I remember seeing glimpses of the movie as a kid and wanting to be in that treehouse. I don't think the emotional attachment is there anymore, as Tarazan seems like an appropriate tenant. I don't think it weakens the theme of Adventureland in any sense.

    We already have Innoventions and what makes you think we want Tarzans Treehouse?

    Yes, the "Swiss Family Robinson" remake is from Walt Disney Pictures.

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    I've said it before. I really don't care if it's Tarzan's Treehouse or if it is Swiss. My complaint is the manner in which they decided to present the current Treehouse and the lack of "rooms" in the tree itself. With Swiss there just seemed to be so much more. Not having a Disney Store Display starring me down certainly helped.

    They could easily have converted or added on to the old Swiss and made it Tarzan without all the Disney Store displays. That is my complaint... not who is in it, but how it was displayed there.

    I also feel it does detract from the experience driven theme of Adventureland. We can explore a Temple with Indy, or search through the depths of the Jungle Cruise. Then when we're done lets look at a static cartoon character in a treehouse!

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    It only even really matters to me at all if it means getting that amazing water system back. I was less offended than perhaps I should have been when I learned of the Tarzan re-theme, but when I found out about the loss of the water system I was horrified.
    If this means that the water system comes back, then I say a re-theme to Will Smith Family Robinson is a-okay. If it doesn't, then I don't care either way, because the tree will continue to be dead to me.

    Re: Could The Swiss Family Treehouse return?

    While I am all for the removal of the Tarzan stairs and bridge (because it blocks too much of the walkway). I really dont mind it remaining Tarzan. My only major changes would be:

    1) Tarzan and Jane Porter face characters would make regular appearances in the interactive area. Terk would also make appearences.

    2) the treehouse would get a staffed by 4 CM's - Greeter, Treehouse, Interactive, and a breaker. 20 minute rotations. Costume would be basic Adventurland, but with pith helmets instead of a fedora.

    although Disney would never staff the treehouse again... I feel that they would help with safty, keep the treehouse maintained, and help children learn more about the attraction... instead of using it as a jungle gym and breaking things.

    I would love to see this IF they take out the static displays in the treehouse itself. This would also require a complete re-work of the drawing room.
