Meet Disney Imagineers of Cotino, a Storyliving by Disney Community

Meet Disney Imagineers of Cotino Storyliving

In the picturesque desert of Rancho Mirage, California, the very first Storyliving by Disney community is beginning to come to life!

Our team of Disney Imagineers is collaborating with industry expert developers, architects, and builders to create Cotino community, a place where people can write the next chapter of their lives — and in a place near and dear to our founder, Walt Disney.

Whenever Walt needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of work, he would retreat to the Greater Palm Springs Area to reignite his imagination. Lovingly referred to as his “laughing place,” Walt would take time to unwind and ask himself the age-old question, “what comes next?”

We’re so excited to give you a peek behind the curtain of Cotino community in our special four-part video series, “The Story Behind the Making of Cotino, a Storyliving by Disney community.” In the series, you will hear from some of the Disney Imagineers working on Cotino community and learn what is inspiring them.

In our first installment, meet our Creative Director, Amy Young, who shares with us how the concept of a “creative oasis” is becoming a reality in Cotino community. Future installments will include “Setting the Stage,” “Magic is in the Details” and “The Big Idea,” each featuring a different Disney Imagineer.

Be sure to stay tuned to the Storyliving by Disney Facebook and Instagram pages over the next few weeks as we share more from our extraordinary Imagineers working on Cotino community.
