Let me just say that I never understood this tree house growing up. Like, why would I want to visit Tarzan&#8217;s Tree House? I had no clue it had once been the Swiss Family Robin&#8217;s tree, or at least not until a few years ago. It wasn&#8217;t until this past month that I finally watched the movie (Thanks to Netflix USA, for real, it&#8217;s a two hour movie but I sat down and watched it.). Seeing their home it finally clicked. EVERYTHING I&#8217;d ever seen on my few rare trips up and around Tarzan&#8217;s house WAS SFR. It all made sense! I seriously wished Disney had kept the SFR tree house, instead of transforming into TTH. The tree house, the set up, the outdoor kitchen- even the river make more sense for the SFR. Don&#8217;t get me wrong, TTH is cool (when the stinking jaguar roars you get a nice shot of air in your face if you don&#8217;t expect it- I didn&#8217;t) and despite never getting to see the SFR tree house, it will always be that in my mind.

The Happiest Place on Earth On One Of America’s Darkest Days

When 9/11 comes around, we tend to think of three places: New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington D.C. In memory of those lost, I will not be posting anything for the day. The links below will lead you to sites where people talk about about what it was like to be at Disney World when the events happened and how the cast members of Disneyland dealt with all their guest who would not be going to into the parks. I put a little insert from each page, just to give you an idea of what they’re on.

This Day In Disney History.

Tuesday September 11th, 2001

-At Disney World, Cast Members in all 4 parks are instructed to hold hands and form a human wall and gently (without touching guests) walk towards the hub of each park and eventually towards the exit. This calmly forces all guests out of the park. Security follows each human wall to make sure no one gets past.

-At Disneyland Resort, food and beverage stations remain open at no charge for guests who are on property. AMC Theaters at Downtown Disney show free Disney films for stranded Resort guests. Due to the time difference, the California theme parks have been able to close before any guest can enter.

Actual Cast Member & Guest Accounts From Within the Disney World Parks.

WDW Cast Member’s Memoir:

I (was) getting trained on 2 major attractions (at the Magic Kingdom) when my manager told both me and my trainer what had just happened in NY. We quickly went to the nearest Cast Member Break Room and I managed to see the second plane hitting the tower “live.” The room was packed with all sorts of managers and I remember very vividly the (very surprised) reaction on their faces when the ABC reporter said:

"This just in: (The Walt Disney Company) has just announced that (it) will be closing (its) theme parks worldwide."

And literally less than a minute after the reporter said that, their beepers started going off like crazy and they walked out of the break room. About 5 - 10 minutes after that incident, they notified cast members of what we were going to do.

First we shut down all the attractions and restaurants and merchandise shops to get the guests out in the street. We were strictly forbidden from telling them what was the real reason why we decided to close the park. Which caused some confusion; and maybe even some irate guests at times. But it avoided (quite effectively) the cause for panic from our guests. They even gave us a simple spiel to tell them in case they had questions.

Two Disneyland Cast Members Share 9/11 and the Days Following the Attack

…At the Hollywood Gate, Ginger also got word about the closure. Her new task for the day was to clear the work crews who were already in the park. She then hurried back to the gate to turn back arriving cast members who hadn’t gotten a message. Many of the young people hadn’t heard the news, and couldn’t understand how Disneyland could be closed. Ginger found herself telling the same sad story over and over again…

Over at Disneyland, the young man with the bike was busy making phone calls, when word suddenly came through park radios to evacuate all buildings. A report had been received that planes were headed toward the resort. After hurrying through the building, ensuring that every office was cleared, he joined his co-workers and waited in their pre-designated evacuation area. After a tense wait, the all clear finally came through.

We were sitting in Indiana Jones waiting for the show to start. I thought it was odd that it was 10 min. after show time & Disney shows NEVER start late. A CM came out & very cherrfully said “due to the events going on in the world right now the show has been cancelled & the park was being closed early.” Very few people knew what was going on so we all sat there thinking it was part of some new pre-show or something. About a minute later a male CM came out & more seriously said that it was true, the park was being evacusted, please move out to the front of the park in an orderly fashion. We knew from his tone he was serious & everyone started filing out. We had no idea what was going on. CMs were handing out 1-day 1-park passes as we exited.

On the bus ride back the driver filled us in with bits & pieces but most was mis-information. He said the US was being attacked by terrorists in all major cities & that freaked everyone out - because wouldn’t WDW be a great target?

The resorts were packed. They did bring characters & entertainment in but you just couldn’t move at the pool or food court. We stayed in the room glued to CNN most of the day, it was very somber.

The lobby was packd the next few days, people couldn’t fly out & there were no rental cars to be found. There were lines for the pay phones because cell phone service was spotty the few days after. MK was empty the next day but we went & enjoyed ourselves. CM’s kept to show & no mention was made of what was going on. It was a nice escape from reality in a very uncertain time.

The next day (Thursday I think) Tropical Storm Gabrielle hit & while the parks were open, they came around to the rooms & urged everyone to stay in. We stayed in since the kids were so little, you couldn’t walk out of your door 1 inch without getting pelted by stinging rain. We were supposed to fly home that day but there were still no flights.

We finally got a flight out on Sunday. Disney had room to accomodate us since no guests were flying in either. The airport was complete chaos, people had been camping out on chairs & in aisles desperate to get any flight, anywhere.

No matter what you personal belief is, I ask that you pray, send positive vibes- anything good to the families and friends of those lost. These articles, they talk about of 9/11 most don’t realize happened
