Announcing Storyliving by Disney: New Business to Develop Residential Communities

I have some big news to share! As more fans look for new ways to make Disney a bigger part of their lives, today we are announcing plans to introduce Storyliving by Disney, vibrant new neighborhoods that are infused with our special brand of magic. Each community will feature distinctively designed spaces, unique amenities and Disney’s brand of world-renowned service.

These master-planned, new home communities are intended to inspire residents to foster new friendships, pursue their interests and write the next exciting chapter in their lives —all while enjoying the attention to detail and special touches that are Disney hallmarks.

At each location, including some neighborhoods for residents ages 55+, Disney cast members trained in the company’s legendary guest service will operate the community association. Through a club membership, Disney will also provide access to curated experiences, such as wellness programming; entertainment ranging from live performances to cooking classes; philanthropic endeavors; seminars and much more.

And where will the first one be? None other than a place that has known the footsteps of Walt Disney himself! Cotino, a Storyliving by Disney community, will be built in the heart of the Coachella Valley in Rancho Mirage, Calif. If you’re a Disney history fan, you might know that the brilliant mountain-ringed valley in the Greater Palm Spring area was once a rejuvenating retreat for Walt and Lillian Disney!

Check out this video to learn more about the proposed plans for Cotino, a Storyliving by Disney community. We will be working with highly respected real estate developers and experienced home builders at each site, who will contribute their talents and expertise to each community.

Like any good story, this is just the beginning! Other locales in the U.S. are under exploration.

  • Awesome. Just what we need in California. We have no water, but we are building more homes, hotels, and water features. Disney should pay everyones water bill in the state.

  • What is the best way to receive updates on Cotino ?

  • Wonderful Idea. I believe that ‘Celebration’ in Florida was the start of this idea.
    ‘Celebration’ was originally designed by ‘Disney Imagineers’
    Glad to hear that they are continuing this idea.
    Will there be a version of ‘Storyliving’ in Florida near Orlando?

  • Wow this is quite incredible, what about a DC Universe Land with Superman x Batman fanfiction sculptures?

  • Please keep me updated!!

  • Hello, We are very excited, please forward information. Will you be developing in Florida? OMG this is amazing.

  • LOVE this idea! Lt me know when you build on the East Coast and I’ll put my deposit down!
