Presented by Green Builder Media (GBM) in collaboration with Walt Disney Imagineering, the VISION House is intended to provide visitors with an up close look at "real solutions for contemporary green living."
The experiential exhibit at Epcot Center gives cause for attendees to interact by considering how they can reduce their personal impact on the planet. It features high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, whole-home automation systems, and green products like hardwood floors and wood cabinets.

Visitors are then directed into a post-show area, which contains interactive kiosks that contain further information about sustainable living. Throughout the exhibit, visitors are encouraged to consider how they can reduce their personal impact on the planet, as well as make changes in their own homes to make them more sustainable and durable.
