Disney's Tarzan® was the third highest grossing film for the Summer of 1999. The gross profit for the film since it's opening has been over $166.5 million. "Tarzan®" had the second largest opening weekend of any Disney Animation Feature, with "The Lion King" being the first. Total gross profit was $34.1 million during the opening weekend.

From the Disney Magazine (Summer 1999): "A Disneyland landmark welcomes new tenants this July, when the 70-foot-tall tree that once housed the Swiss Family Treehouse reopens with a Tarzan® theme. Visit the home of the Lord of the Jungle by scaling a staircase made of items salvaged from a shipwreck, then crossing a rickety suspension bridge. Nestled high among the leaves, vine-covered huts are filled with the personal effects of Tarzan®. Guests who prefer to keep their feet on the ground can stick to the playground at the base of the tree, where live animals and characters from Tarzan® gather at different times during the day."
