Disney, the beloved entertainment company, has always sought innovative ways to bring magic and joy into people's lives. In pursuit of this mission, The Walt Disney Company has recently announced the launch of Storyliving by Disney - vibrant residential communities infused with the company's special brand of magic. These master-planned neighborhoods aim to inspire residents to foster new friendships, pursue their passions, and embark on exciting new chapters in their lives, all while enjoying the exquisite attention to detail, unique amenities, and special touches that Disney is renowned for.

Infusing the Magic of Disney into Residential Communities

The first Storyliving by Disney community will be built in Rancho Mirage, situated in California's Coachella Valley, a location that holds a special place in Walt Disney's heart as it was where he owned a home and spent cherished moments with his family. In addition to Rancho Mirage, Disney is exploring additional locations in the United States for future developments.

"For nearly a century, Disney has shared stories that have touched the hearts and minds of people all around the world," said Josh D'Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products. "As we enter our second century, we are excited to develop new and immersive ways to bring the magic of Disney to people wherever they are. We are expanding storytelling to storyliving, and we can't wait to welcome residents to these beautiful and unique Disney communities where they can truly live their lives to the fullest."

A Unique Living Experience for All

At each location, residents will be welcomed by Disney cast members trained in the company's legendary guest service, ensuring an unparalleled living experience. Moreover, through a club membership, residents will gain access to curated experiences that include wellness programs, live performances, cooking classes, philanthropic endeavors, seminars, and much more.

Disney Imagineers, renowned for their creative brilliance, will play a key role in developing the concept for each community. Collaborating with respected developers and homebuilders, these Imagineers will tailor the indoor and outdoor spaces of the communities to reflect the richness and inspiration of the local region, providing residents with a diverse range of opportunities to explore, engage, and create their own incredible stories.

Cotino: Where Dreams and Reality Collide

In the heart of the Greater Palm Springs area lies Cotino, the first Storyliving by Disney community. This picturesque community, developed in collaboration with DMB Development, will encompass a variety of home types, including estates, single-family homes, and condominiums, catering to homeowners of all ages.

Cotino boasts a rich history as a retreat for Walt and Lillian Disney, and its architecture and amenities will pay homage to the valley's cultural heritage. The development will surround an approximately 24-acre grand oasis featuring crystal-clear turquoise waters utilizing the sustainable Crystal Lagoons® technology. This innovative approach to water management ensures low water consumption and minimal use of additives and energy, providing residents with access to a waterfront clubhouse, a private club-only beach area, and a myriad of recreational water activities.

In addition to the residential area, Cotino will feature a vibrant mixed-use district comprising shopping, dining, and entertainment options. The district will also encompass a beachfront hotel and a professionally managed beach park, allowing the public to access recreational water activities through the purchase of a day pass.


Disney's foray into the realm of residential communities with Storyliving by Disney presents an exciting opportunity for fans to immerse themselves in the magic of Disney's storytelling in their everyday lives. By infusing the communities with their exceptional attention to detail, unique amenities, and world-class entertainment, Disney aims to create unforgettable experiences and lifelong memories for residents.
