Imagine living in a fairy tale with Disney magic and local charm. That’s what Storyliving by Disney offers, a new venture by The Walt Disney Company that aims to create master-planned communities that utilize Disney Imagineering and are staffed by Disney cast members.

In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know about Storyliving by Disney, including:

Let’s get started:

What is Storyliving by Disney?

Storyliving by Disney is a brand name introduced in 2022 for master-planned communities that are developed and built by third parties, not Disney. However, these communities are designed and managed by Disney Living Development, Inc., part of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, and feature the Disney touch in every aspect.

Storyliving by Disney is not just a collection of houses. It is a lifestyle experience that combines world-famous Disney service, fun, and placemaking with the local culture and heritage of each region. Each Storyliving by Disney location will have distinct personalities and take inspiration from the history and surroundings of the area.

Storyliving by Disney is also not just for families with children. It is for anyone who loves Disney and wants to live their dream in a place that fosters creativity, curiosity, and community. Some Storyliving by Disney communities will have neighborhoods exclusively for adults aged 55+.

What are the benefits of living in a Storyliving by Disney community?

Living in a Storyliving by Disney community has many benefits, such as:

  • Enjoying world-class service from Disney cast members who deliver personalized attention and care to every resident.
  • Having access to a variety of amenities and activities that cater to different interests and passions, such as fitness centers, pools, spas, restaurants, shops, clubs, events, and more.
  • Being part of a vibrant and inspiring community that encourages social interaction and friendship among residents.
  • Experiencing the magic of Disney in your everyday life through enchanting details, surprises, and storytelling elements that make every day special.
  • Living in harmony with nature and sustainability in communities that are designed to conserve water, energy, and resources.

Where are the Storyliving by Disney communities located and what are their features?

The first Storyliving by Disney community under development is Cotino, in Rancho Mirage, California. Cotino will be a 618-acre mixed-use development with several residential options, hotels, resort facilities, and a retail center, all surrounding a 24-acre grand oasis and lagoon.

Cotino was inspired by the Smoketree Ranch in nearby Palm Springs, where Walt Disney himself had a home. Cotino will reflect the rich culture and heritage of the Coachella Valley region, as well as the legacy of Walt Disney.

Some of the features of Cotino include:

  • A variety of home styles and sizes to suit different preferences and budgets.
  • A sustainable lagoon that will use 30 times less water than a golf course and provide recreational opportunities such as swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing.
  • A clubhouse that will offer dining options, fitness facilities, spa services, meeting spaces, and entertainment venues.
  • A beach that will feature sand imported from Florida’s Gulf Coast and palm trees from Hawaii.
  • A retail center that will include shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, and other services.
  • A hotel that will offer luxury accommodations and amenities for guests and residents.
  • A resort that will feature themed areas inspired by different Disney stories and characters.

Storyliving by Disney is also exploring other locations in the U.S. for future communities. These locations will be carefully selected based on their appeal to potential residents and their compatibility with the Storyliving concept.
