    I think they were part of 'Disney's Village Resort." We stayed in a studio there in 1995.

    Although they were different treehouses, that area was part of the Disney Institute, I believe.

    they were still called the "treehouse villas" as part of the "village" of Fairway Villas, treehouse villas, etc. Most of Saratoga Springs has taken that area over.

    OK, 3 answers - all different! Mine was 1/2 a guess -- but wasn't that where the Institute was located? (although realizing the Treehouses might have had their own unique name).

    The Disney Institute came later. At first it was the Disney Village Resort with three separate types of villas, one of which was the Treehouse type. All the answers above are correct. It was an area that was always transforming itself.

    When I stayed there I remember it being The Villas at Disney Institute. They were beautiful! That was my first time at Disney and we went with my company for work.
