DDW Pic 432. Swiss Family Treehouse
Swiss Family Treehouse
I took this shot near the exit of the Swiss Family Treehouse while giving a recent tour of the Magic Kingdom. This is one of the only spots where you can get the whole tree in the frame. This amazingly lifelike structure is almost entirely manmade. The only living part of it is the Spanish moss that is draped over the 1,400 branches. The tree stands 60 feet tall and is 90 feet wide. It contains over 300,000 polyethylene leaves, and it holds the distinction of being the only Walt Disney World attraction that flies a non-American flag over it.
