Overview:

A cherished Walt Disney World tradition from 1975-2002, the original octagonal treehouse villas were built on pedestals in forested glens, offering Guests breathtaking treetop views of the natural surroundings.

When designing the new Treehouse Villas accommodations, Disney Imagineers went to great lengths to ensure that the new villas would actually lessen the original villas’ footprint. As a result, Disney Imagineers were able to reduce encroachment on the surrounding wetlands by 70 percent for each individual home site.

Treehouse Villas built in natural forest glens with 60 three-bedroom homes opened on June 1, 2009. These stand-alone structures—elevated 10 feet off the ground on pedestals and beams—are nestled unobtrusively into natural glens alongside the Sassagoula River.

Each Treehouse Villa can sleep up to 9 Guests, plus a child under age 3 in a crib. The Treehouse Villas have two full bathrooms; one private bath off of the Master bedroom and a 2nd bathroom off of the living area. FYI: none of the bathroom doors have locks on them. Due to the unique octagonal shape, each Treehouse Villa is surprisingly spacious at approximately 1,074 square feet in size.

Dining:

The Artist’s Palette is a market-style counter service eatery that offers both hot and cold meals and food grocery items including a bakery and wine selection.
