BREAKING NEWS: Disney Building West Coast Version of Golden Oak Called Cotino
If you’re on the West Coast and are envious of Walt Disney World’s Golden Oak estate featuring luxury homes for Disney fans, you’ll love what we’re about to share with you! California residents will soon be able to call Disney home with Storyliving by Disney. This is being dubbed a community for Disney fans to live that incorporates the company’s brand of magic.
In the press release which came out today (February 16, 2022) Disney says of the project, “These master-planned communities are intended to inspire residents to foster new friendships, pursue their interests and write the next exciting chapter in their lives — all while enjoying the attention to detail, unique amenities and special touches that are Disney hallmarks.”
The location for Storyliving is the Palm Dessert which offers a unique climate, diverse flora and fauna and natural wonders. This will be the inspiration for the new Storyliving development which is called Cotino. Disney hopes the homes here will create a vibrant atmosphere that encourages residents “to keep dreaming and keep doing.”
According to the press release, Imagineers are currently at work on the concept for the community in conjunction with developers and homebuilders. We can reveal that being a part of the Storyliving community will include a club membership, curated experiences, wellness programming, entertainment, cooking classes, seminars and more.
There will even be some communities specifically designs for residents 55 and up.
The location of Cotino is Rancho Mirage, California in Coachella Valley. This location was selected because it was once a retreat for Walt and his wife Lillian.
“Story is at the heart of everything we do and we love bringing authentic places to life to immerse you into those stories,” Michael Hundgen, executive producer of Walt Disney Imagineering, said in a statement. “We dive deep into the history and the culture of the place itself and we’re really inspired by its surroundings.”
Walt referred to the Greater Palm Springs area as his happy placed and now others can capture this feeling of magic! We expect more details regarding this exciting development in the days and weeks ahead. Disney has revealed that community amenities will include a waterfront clubhouse, a club-only beach area, water activities and Disney activities throughout the year.
According to a recent piece on Good Morning America, we can reveal that Cotino will encompass 24 acres. Private homes and a hotel will surround a crystalline turquoise lagoon.
We can’t wait to find out more about the actual prosperities and architectural style of the homes on offer. Check out the YouTube video below to see a bit more about Storyliving:
