House Concepts Unveiled for ‘Cotino’, The First Storyliving by Disney Community

Storyliving by Disney has revealed their first look at the housing concepts for “Cotino” village in California’s Greater Palm Springs. The community will use these concepts as inspiration for houses when the construction begins in 2023:

Walt Disney Imagineers and DMB Developments are working together to make this project a reality in the heart of Walt Disney’s favorite place. The community was inspired to build in California’s Greater Palm Springs area by man himself, who frequently visited for rest.

Future residents will be able to join in on that rest and relaxation when “Cotino” houses begin selling in 2023. The community will be ready to move into by 2024.

  1. Those look like topical desert homes. If I were designing those homes I would give them the Walt Disney touch and have mouse shaped windows. Or ears on the roofs. I would have it look like a wonderland to live in. Like you were walking into downtown Disney, where your imagination can run wild. You should ask the people who love Disney what they would want the homes to look like. It’s like the people who love the flint stones they would love a modern house that looks like a house that looks like a big rock.

  2. I agree with you! Looks like a desert home. I was expecting a Disneyland feel to the property. Disappointed.

    1. I hope you find a way to connect the Salten Sea to this Disney lagoon so maybe we can save that place at the same time. It is such a shame how developers keep ignoring that place and try to just open another large water spot in the desert. And yes the housing is not very nice, I’m not excited, especially if the house is going to be 1/2 a million dollars.

  3. Building a fresh water lagoon in the desert is not the best idea. We who live here under water restrictions have some serious questions about how this got approval.

  4. Wow! New Tatooine Homes? As Obi Wan Kenobi would say: “Mos Eisley spaceport, where you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.”😜 Yikes!

  5. This is a huge mistake. We are in the middle of a mega drought. We don’t need anymore development here. We are constantly being told to conserve water by Coachella Valley Water District and Desert Water Agency, and for what?? So they can build this high end development with a 24-acre artificial lake. This is insanity.

  6. Seriously this needs to be stopped and Disney needs to be fined for abusing water conservation laws while we all suffer

  7. In this historic drought putting in a lagoon is rediculous and a total waste of water. Another water wasting event that will fail
    just like the wave parks. Developers will screw the residents/taxpayers as often as possible. Take the money and run.

  8. High density housing, aging infrastructure, sewage, 1000 acre feet lagoons while CA in permanent drought conditions, backed up roadways. Developments like this are a disaster in the making. Look at the debacle Disneys “Celebration” Florida become 30 years ago. Cochino is wrong for the desert, Cochino is a bad deal for the desert. NO to Cochino.

  9. I guess that nobody got the memo…. This historic drought is not letting up. The future of desert living will be challenging at best. Power generation is likely to be greatly curtailed and the taps may for all practical purposes run “dry”. Designing a community that features a “lagoon” is both irresponsible and foolhardy.
