June 19 - Disney has released a number of new images of design concepts that, when approved, will inspire the homes in 'Cotino' which will be the first Storyliving community located in Coachella Valley in Rancho Mirage, California. You can take a look at these below. The images aim to show an idea of the types of homes that will be created and are not representations in their own right.
February 18 - Disney is always looking at new ways to develop its business, tell its story and expand its line up of offerings for Disney fans. It has been announced this week that a new business is being launched to develop residential communities named, Storyliving by Disney.
Storyliving by Disney is advertised as being "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."
It appears that these communities will have a combination of residential houses including condominiums and single-family homes as well as a hotel along with numerous shopping, leisure and recreational facilities. Some neighborhoods will be for people aged 55+ only.
Disney is using highly respected real estate developers and home builders to help bring their vision to life.
The world renown Disney 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 performances, cooking classes, wellness and seminars.
Many locations have been explored and the first confirmed site is set to be in the Coachella Valley in Rancho Mirage, California. This is a place where Walt and Lilian would escape to as a vacation destination.
Disney has just introduced 'Cotino' which is the name of the first Storyliving community. As well as the residential housing, hotel, leisure, shopping, restaurants and recreational facilities, Cotino is set to have a grand oasis at its heart as well as a town centre with markets and businesses.

We currently don't know the timeline for this project but we will keep you up to date with further details of Storyliving with Disney on our News and Facebook Page and you can also visit the official website.
