BACKSTORY (July 3, 2008–March 31, 2015): From the Disney Press release: “The Innoventions Dream Home is both a show and a showcase, offering guests of all ages a hands-on experience with new in-home technologies, some that are practical and some that are astounding. Microsoft, HP, Life|ware and homebuilder Taylor Morrison have joined with Disneyland Resort to demonstrate how a connected digital lifestyle can simply and enhance many aspects of daily family life. “The experience includes guest interaction with the residents of the Dream Home - the fictional Elias* family - who will be excited to welcome all guests into their new home at the end of June. Members of the family move from room to room, utilizing the technology as they prepare for a big celebration. Guests who enter the Dream Home can observe and play with all its comforts.”
