  • Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse Or Tarzan?

    Hey Guys! Well I have not been here at Micechat all that long so im sure this topic has been covered but, I was wondering witch tree house you guys prefer. Swiss or Tarzan? To me it was like, lets throw some tarzen stuff in there and called it a day. They didnt change it too much but I still prefer Swiss family Robinson. Any thoughts?

    I'm still not sure why the Robinsons got evicted. They seemed like such a nice family. and I liked the organ music there as well.

      No question about it....Swiss Family Treehouse. An awesome, timeless movie that will appeal to many generations to come. One of my personal favorites. I was very sad when I heard the Swiss Family was moving out of Disneyland.

        While it made sense to transition to 'Tarzan' for the current generation of guests, I'd always loved the 'Swiss Family Robinson' Treehouse, especially since actually having seen the film. If the new project actually materializes* (and is a massive hit), perhaps we'll see a new, improved version come home to roost.

        Mostow finds shelter with Dis' 'Robinson'

        "Swiss Family Robinson" is heading back to the big screen with Jonathan Mostow at the helm. Mandeville Films CEO David Hoberman and president Todd Lieberman are producing for Walt Disney Pictures. The deal also includes an arrangement for Mostow to rewrite a script by Greg Poirier.

        Mostow came to the project after six months of negotiations, which resulted in the company heading for a 2006 production slot in Australia. "We are very excited about the project," said Hoberman, who called Mostow cold to pitch him the project only to run into a little serendipity with the director. Hoberman said Mostow called Disney's 1960 feature version his favorite childhood film. Ditto for Hoberman, who came on board to produce through Mandeville after the project had been laying fallow at Disney for some time.

          That makes sense. Must keep DL "fresh for the kids" while at the same time preserving the history. That's a hard balance to keep, but it must be done otherwise DL might become patchland.

            The Swiss Family tree house looked like the family had just left. Perhaps they got rescued. It stimulated the imagination and added to the mistique of Adventureland.

            Tarzan's Tree House is a nightmare. The fibreglass figures leave nothing to the imagine and simply don't fit the realistic environment. The tree path was reversed and extended such that it's now too steep for many people, and the freakin' tree blocks the exit from Adventureland.

            I only want to preserve the past when it's a whole lot better that what replaced it. I'm not running around longing for my 16Meg MP3 player. It's long gone and I simple don't miss it. Tarzan's Tree House would be like me replacing my old MP3 player with a 1Meg player. Boy would I miss the 16Meg one then!

              I'm with Lore, Swiss Family Treehouse allowed you to use your imagination, and vicariously live the life of the family. The current treehouse just shows you scenes, and leave nothing to the imagination. I think the tarzan version would have been more appealing with more imagination and play areas, but they didn't have many treehouse scenes to build from so they just showed what was in the movie.

                  Swiss Family, I loved the waterwheel, and all of the bamboo water ways bringing water throughout the tree. As a kid, I always thought it would be cool to build a tree house like that.

                      I never bothered with the Tarzan Treehouse when I last went because it just didn't look very interesting.

                      The Swiss Family Robinson treehouse on the other hand was always fun and interesting to explore. And by the time I had seen it, the Swiss Family wasn't very popular and I had no idea who they were.

                          i really preferred swiss family tree house to tarzans tree house. It had more charm and a story to me anyway then tarzans tree house did. I always had to go to the swiss family tree house, but i never go on the tarzan one because it doesn't feel like a must do everytime im there like swiss family was. I was so happy the disney world had the swiss family tree and had to go on it about a dozen times.

                            I loved the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse. I was so upset when they took it out. I find the new treehouse a waste of time, to be honest...

                              Tarzan's Treehouse is much more interactive and fun. Love the new furnishings. Plus, the accoustical instruments are a real kick to play. Tarzan and Jane face characters make frequent visits. I especially like Jane.

                              Plus, animal caretakers periodically bring exotic animals for all to experience and enjoy. The Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse was terrific. Time marches forward though, and I find it's cadance fascinating in this case.

                              Look at the bright side, Tomorrowland may get a new Meet The Robinsons ride at some point in the not too faw away future. Me thinks they might just be distant relatives of their Swiss family namesakes.
