With a new range of residential communities, Walt Disney Co. says it is moving beyond “storytelling” and into “storyliving.” The Burbank, California-based theme-park and entertainment company announced Wednesday that it plans to develop a string of such real estate projects around the country, beginning in Rancho Mirage, Calif.  

The new residential development business will be called “Storyliving by Disney,” the company said in a news release. Plans are underway for the first project in the desert community, which is near where company founder Walt Disney once owned a home. Additional locations in the U.S. are also being explored, the company said.
