This is a very picture heavy post. Everything is fashioned from found objects, natural resources—and pure ingenuity! Follow the wood rope stairways up, up, up into the boughs. Discover the mother’s music den, the young sons’ nature room and the teenage daughter’s astronomy loft. Adjacent to the stairway is the home’s iconic waterwheel, which generates the energy needed to power the family’s gadgets and inventions.
Visit the Adventureland Treehouse, where a new family has moved in and created an oasis among the trees! While they’re off seeking a new adventure, they’ve invited you to explore each of the fascinating rooms they designed.

The Reimagining of a Classic Attraction
Paying tribute to the original treehouse that Walt Disney and his Imagineers built in 1962, the reimagined Adventureland Treehouse at Disneyland Park is brimming with magic, enchantment and wonder.
Throughout Disneyland there are clear water attractions such as Small World, Splash Mountain and the Pirates of the Caribbean with their own body of water. Then there are the dark water attractions which are all connected together. The clear water attractions are isolated but the dark water attractions are connected. This stream is attached to the moat that goes around Sleeping Beauty's Castle to the left but to the right it's tethered into the river from the Jungle Cruise.
Having the water flowing adds so much background sound and energy which emotionally makes us feel like we are someplace tropical.
One of the subtle details that makes Adventureland feel tropical is this stream right along the edge of the Indiana Jones queue and the beginning of the treehouse. This stream is creating the sound of water that makes us think that we're someplace in the wilderness. This water is connected to the rivers of the Jungle Cruise. But aside from the adventurous water noise, all of the plant life, the rock sculptures, the noise of the water are pieces of the puzzle that feel distant from one another when really they're quite close.
At the head of the waterfall or the pump, that helps recirculate the water to all the different destinations, so the water system can fully irrigate and self-regulate not go stagnant.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
