Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
Tarzan, in my opinion, is one of the few very underrated Disney movies that have been released, especially of later years. Due to it’s underrated approval, it does not feature heavily in the Disney parks across the world. However, some parks have featured Tarzan in time gone by in some small capacity.
Today, I thought I would share Tarzan’s inclusion in the Disney parks, both past and present.
Tarzan’s Treehouse is an attraction in Adventureland in the Disneyland park at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. This attraction was originally themed to the Swiss Family Robinson, however in 1999, it was closed and re-themed by Imagineers. It reopened to guests on June 23rd 1999.
Walt Disney World
At Walt Disney World, you can meet Tarzan on Discovery Island Trails West in Animal Kingdom.
Tarzan Rocks was a musical show that took place in the Theatre of the Wild in Animal Kingdom between 1999 and 2006. It included roller skating monkeys as well as songs from the movie.
Tarzan: The Encounter was a musical show that followed the story line of the movie. It was performed in the Chaparral Theatre in Frontierland. The show ran from April 2000 until some point in 2008, then again from June 2011 to some point in 2012.
Hong Kong Disneyland
Hong Kong Disneyland, much like California, has a treehouse themed to the story of Tarzan. It is situated on Tarzan’s Island and rafts are used to ferry guests across the Rivers of Adventure.
Shanghai Disneyland has it’s own version of Tarzan: The Encounter, however here it is called Tarzan: Call of The Jungle. It is almost identical to the Paris version except their stage is central and not in front of the audience.
