Hello everyone, and welcome to #Day48 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  Today we are taking a look at the Swiss Family Treehouse attraction, an original attraction located in Adventureland!  As crazy as this sounds, I love this attraction, it is one of my favorites to explore each visit, and I truly enjoy putting myself into the story and imagining what it would be like to have to live like this.

In fact, I like this attraction so much that it has been the subject of numerous blog posts, but this one in particular is one I really enjoy!

Part of why I like the attraction is because of the unique vantage points that it reveals — did you know that you could check out Space Mountain from the Treehouse?

In addition to the unique vantage points, I really like how the Imagineers worked all of this in from the story.  It’s amazing how much they do with each of the attractions, and because of that, they make an attraction so much better than it ever would be otherwise.  Here’s a shot of the very top of the attraction:

The only thing I wish was that it was accessible for disabled guests.  I know that this would be very hard to accomplish, but it would be nice to see.

Do you and your family enjoy Swiss Family Treehouse, or do you skip it?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!
