Walt Disney World Treehouse Villa #433 – 37 years later

Those that follow RetroWDW may remember that Todd's first visit in 1980 included a stay at the original Treehouse Villas. Demolished in 2008, and subsequently rebuilt, the treehouse were and still are one of the most unique places to stay on WDW property. The newer incarnations share the same location and street layout as they did when they were first built. Other than the obvious differences to the buildings, the seclusion, silence and privacy remain. The house numbers for the villas have been renumbered, originally numbered 400 to 460 they have taken on 7000 through 7060 post refurbishment.

Which brings us to July 20, 2017 - Todd is chatting with JT who just so happens to send him a picture of his jog through Saratoga Springs; with a quick exchange of 4 photos from 1980 JT was able to locate the former location of Treehouse 433 and lineup the photos with the newer 7033.

I agree. I’ve never been there, but I like the older buildings and newer landscape. Very cool photos, guys!


I have always wanted to stay in one of these, but traveling as a childless couple, doesn’t exactly fit the bill there. Maybe in the future.


Totally agree! They are so cool though; the atmosphere around them and location was amazing. I’d highly recommend going for a walk back in there, so relaxing.

I need an electric convenience vehicle when I visit WDW. One day I took a joy ride, Old Key West to the DIsney Marketplace, thence through Saratoga springs, and then wandered through the Treehouse Villas. When I got to the gate at OKW, the guard waved me in and said, “Sir, you’ve made my day. You’re on an ECV in the road!” I then took the (forbidden) golf course golfcart paths (the course was closed due to the weather) and saw most of the course, which I’d never seen, and was really quite beautiful. FIle this under: THings to do… Read more »
