DDW Pic 359. Swiss Family Treehouse

Swiss Family Treehouse
Although the Swiss Family Treehouse has been around since opening day at the Magic Kingdom, I snapped this shot just a few weeks ago. This is a re-creation of the famous tree from the 1960 Disney movie Swiss Family Robinson. The family in the film used may objects from their shipwreck to furnish their new "home." While passing by this room in the tree, you can hear the famous organ music from the movie playing in the background. The name of the piece is Swisskapolka. The only "live" part of the tree is the Spanish moss hanging over the branches. Also, the Swiss flag at the treehouse is the only non-American flag hanging over a Walt Disney World attraction.
