La Cabane des Robinson

At A Glance Exploration adventure set aimed at adults and children, with plenty of places to clamber round and generally explore, those afraid of heights, the dark, or confined spaces may not enjoy some areas.


The Swiss Family Robinson's Treehouse is built into a replica of a giant Banyan tree, and is one of the most well known attractions featured at a Disney theme park.

The Disneyland Paris version features four levels, accessed via spiralling staircase reaching into the upper branches of the tree. The Library and Kitchen are both on the ground (first) level, whilst the Lounge or Family Room area is on the second level. The third and fourth levels of the treehouse house the family sleeping quarters.

Each room within the treehouse is labelled by a descriptive plaque written by one of the family members, and as with the other theme parks includes a high level of detail put in by the Disney Imagineers to really give the impression that the rooms could be lived in.

The tree housing the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse is actually built from a tubular steel construction, with each of the leaves being made from polythene, and being individually hand glued to the supporting steel branch superstructure. It rises to a height of approximately 90 feet above the surrounding theme park.

Underneath the treehouse, tucked into the 'Roots of the tree' is La Ventre de la Terre (the Root Cellar), a dark maze dimly lit by flickering lamps, and another great place for children to explore, though probably not a place for anyone with a big fear of the dark or that suffers from bad claustrophobia.

The theming of the Treehouse is based on the Swiss Family Robinson story by Johann David Wyss.
