June 19 – Disney has released a number of new design concept images that, once approved, will inspire homes in “Cotino,” which will be the first Storyliving community located in the Coachella Valley in Rancho Mirage, California. You can check them out below. The images are intended to give an idea of the types of houses that will be created and are not representations in their own right.
February 18 – Disney is always looking for new ways to grow its business, tell its story, and expand its range of offerings for Disney fans. It was announced this week that a new company is being launched to develop residential communities named Storyliving by Disney.
Storyliving by Disney is announced as being “Vibrant new neighborhoods infused with our special brand of magic. Each community will feature distinctly designed spaces, unique amenities and Disney’s world-renowned brand of service.”
It appears that these communities will have a combination of residential homes, including condominiums and single family homes, as well as a hotel as well as numerous retail, leisure and recreational facilities. Some neighborhoods will be reserved for people aged 55 and over.
Disney enlists highly respected real estate developers and home builders to bring their vision to life.
Disney’s world-renowned guest service will be at the heart of the neighborhood with Disney cast members operating the community association. There will be a clubhouse and club membership will offer a range of experiences including live entertainment, cooking classes, wellness and seminars.
Many locations have been explored and the first confirmed site is expected to be in the Coachella Valley in Rancho Mirage, California. It’s a place Walt and Lilian would escape to as a vacation destination.
Disney just introduced ‘Cotino’ which is the name of the first Storyliving community. In addition to residential accommodation, hotels, recreation, shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, Cotino is expected to have a large oasis at its heart as well as a town center with markets and businesses.

We don’t currently know the timeline for this project, but we’ll keep you posted with more details about Storyliving with Disney on our News and Facebook page and you can also visit the official site.
