You could live in a home built by Disney in a resort-like neighborhood.

If you a fan of Disney, this could be your dream come true.

The Walt Disney Company announced this week (2/16) their new planned communities, Storyliving by Disney.

According to a Press Release: “As more and more fans look for new ways to make Disney a bigger part of their lives, the company today announced plans to introduce Storyliving by Disney, vibrant new neighborhoods that are infused with the company’s special brand of magic. ”

“At each location, including some neighborhoods for residents ages 55+, Disney Cast Members trained in the company’s legendary guest service will operate the community association. Through a club membership, Disney will also provide access to curated experiences, such as wellness programming; entertainment ranging from live performances to cooking classes; philanthropic endeavors; seminars and much more.”

Now here is the hitch for us in Florida, the first planned community is in Cochlea Valley in California and will be called Cotino. This area was special to Walt Disney and he had a home in the area.

They say there are plans to do this around the country, so we just have to wait and see where they will be building next. Unlike Celebration near the Walt Disney World Resort, it sounds like Disney will hold onto the new communities and manage them. Disney founded Celebration but it’s now a privately owned community. Would you live in a home built by Disney?
