Disneyland trying House of Future concept again
Written by Robert Niles
It looks like Disneyland is going to revive its "House of the Future."Tweet
The House was a Tomorrowland fixture back in the 1950s, and was later stripped, boxed up and moved to Florida, where it is now rotting, I believe, on U.S. 192 in Kissimmee. Disney's revisited the concept of futurist living over the years more times than I can count: Carousel of Progress, Horizons, the old Space Mountain exit, to name three examples that pop into my head immediately.
Now reports say that Disney's trying again, with a 5,000-sq.-ft. home that will open in Tomorrowland in May.
The $15 million home is a collaboration of The Walt Disney Co., Microsoft Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co., software maker LifeWare and homebuilder Taylor Morrison.
