Disneyland Retheming Tarzan’s Treehouse

Tarzan’s Treehouse, which was placed in between Pirates of the Caribbean and the Indiana Jones Adventure, is getting rethemed. The theming of the new inhabitants has not been announced quite yet, but fans are speculating that Encanto will take over.

This 80 foot tall man made tree originally opened in 1962 as the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse. The movie Swiss Family Robinson had just opened several years prior in 1960. However, in 1999, the treehouse was rethemed with a Tarzan overlay to pay homage to the movie that opened that same year. It has always been a walk-through attraction themed to its current inhabitants.

The treehouse had been covered in tarps and not open to the public since last September. This was certainly a long time for seasonal or annual maintenance.

The idea of having an Encanto overlay on the tree is an appealing one. Antonio, Mirabel’s cousin, is granted the power to talk to animals and his room has a large tree inside. In fact, there are already toys of the Antonio’s treehouse online with Target or Walmart. This would be a very welcome addition to the parks in an area that makes sense unlike Rapunzel getting a set of bathrooms at the Magic Kingdom. It would make sense. Disneyland also already had a Mirabel meet and greet close by the treehouse.

The other question if Encanto takes over the Treehouse is if Walt Disney World would follow and retheme its treehouse in Adventureland.

We can speculate all we want about the newest overlay to the years old attraction. Encanto makes sense with Antonio’s Treehouse as a potential theme.

Once we hear what Disney has in store for this area of real estate, we will certainly let you know. Let us know in the comments what other ideas you have the attraction formerly known as Tarzan’s Treehouse!
