As we reported a few weeks ago, Disneyland announced that it would be closing Tarzan’s Treehouse in order to retheme the attraction.

Tarzan’s Treehouse has been closed to Guests as it has been undergoing construction since September 2021, which is a longer timeframe than regular or seasonal refurbishments. The attraction will receive a new theme and backstory, but the treehouse experience isn’t going away, according to Disneyland officials.

As reported by Scott Gustin (@ScottGustin), Disney will soon be demolishing at least part of the attraction:

As part of the retheming of Tarzan’s Treehouse at Disneyland, the attraction entrance and bridge will be demolished and removed entirely to open up this walkway.

As stated above, the entrance to the attraction, as well as the bridge, will be completely demolished during the retheme.

Tarzan’s Treehouse opened in 1999 to Disney Guests as a walk-through attraction that showcases the story of Tarzan with treehouse rooms that closely resemble those from salvaged parts from a shipwreck, according to the Disneyland attraction’s backstory. Before the attraction was Tarzan’s Treehouse, it was known as Swiss Family Treehouse, which opened to Disney guests in 1962, and featured concrete roots, steel limbs, and 300,000 leaves.

More on Tarzan’s Treehouse

At Home in the Jungle

Your adventure begins as you clamber up a tree stump and cross a rope bridge high in the sky. Overgrown with vines and constructed out of parts salvaged from his tragic shipwreck, the tree house features ingenious inventions and vignettes from Tarzan’s epic life story.

Peruse drawings from Jane’s sketchbook that tell the tale of the young English lord who was marooned in the jungle, orphaned and raised by a tribe of gorillas. The tree’s scientific name is Disneydendron semperflorens grandis or “large ever-blooming Disney tree” and some incredible views await you at the top!
