 Are you a fan of Disneyland?

Believe it or not, The Walt Disney Company is now in the business of building communities for people over age 55.

The new project is dubbed “Storyliving by Disney” and will provide master-planned communities with a variety of neighborhoods, including some for people aged 55 and older.

According to Senior Housing News, Disney’s plans are somewhat similar to Minto Communities “Latitude Margaritaville” brand of 55-plus communities inspired by Jimmy Buffet (www.latitudemargaritaville.com).

Disney’s first StoryLiving community, called Cotino, is planned for Rancho Mirage, California near Palm Springs, in an area where Walt Disney once owned a home.

The plans call for “small-town charm, resort style living with Disney touches” and they with a variety of housing options (condos, single-family homes, and at least one section set aside for 55+ residents).

The features of the planned community include a 24-acre “grand oasis” with lagoons and a clubhouse. Programming touches in the community will include entertainment and Disney-style activities.  The community will also provide shopping, dining, theaters, parks and a beachfront hotel. 

More unique experiences pertinent to senior residents will include wellness programming, classes, seminars and live entertainment.
