Disney Is Building Planned Communities For Fans To Live In

Disney fans rejoice! The ultra-popular production house has now launched a new business for fans who love the pristine, family-friendly world the corporation has nurtured through its theme parks and media ventures.

Titled “Storyliving by Disney”, the planned communities will operate as part of the company’s theme parks division, developing a series of master-planned communities for residential living, designed by Disney’s creative staff.

Similar to its resorts, the concept for the first community named Cotino shows villas, condos, and housing complexes clustered around a 24-acre “grand oasis,” which Disney says will offer “clear turquoise waters” powered by the Crystal Lagoons technology deployed at its resorts. Amenities will include “shopping, dining, and entertainment,” as well as a beachfront hotel and clubhouse hosting “Disney programming, entertainment and activities throughout the year.”

A community of 1,900 housing units, Cotino will be built in the city of Rancho Mirage in California’s Coachella Valley (a location where Walt Disney himself once lived). While the date of launch and price for the units hasn’t been revealed, Disney announced that the public will be able to visit Cotino by purchasing day passes, while a section of the development will be set aside for residents aged 55 and up. 

“Picture an energetic community with the warmth and charm of a small town and the beauty of a resort,” said Disney Parks, Experiences and Products exec Helen Pak in a promotional video.

According to reports, although Disney is branding and marketing these communities, it will not own, build, or sell the homes. Instead, it will be partnering with third-party developers to carry out this work.
