Cue the comments: Disney’s planning new communities for ‘Disney Adults’, and Twitter is having a heyday

Today, Disney made a huge announcement about its newest endeavor, a brand-new residential communities project called Storyliving by Disney, and at least one section of the internet has been taken over by snarky remarks and snide comments about “Disney Adults.” (A few of the comments have netted us a few chuckles ourselves!)

In the announcement, Disney said that it’s launching a new business that will be tasked with developing residential communities that will incorporate unique amenities with beautifully-designed spaces and top off the living experience with world-class Disney service. The first community will be developed in Rancho Mirage, California, but other locations are currently being explored.

It certainly sounds like the perfect spot for those who love the idea of having a little Disney in the everyday.

While lots of Disney fans are thrilled at the idea of a place where they can live amongst others who love Disney, and have some of that magic infused into their lives on the daily, others have taken to varying social media platforms to poke fun at the idea and at the “Disney Adults” who’ll no doubt populate these magical residential communities once they become a reality.

On Twitter, @heathturner92 says the new communities are a great idea. In fact, he tweeted that this project is the best idea Disney’s ever had–the idea to isolate weird Disney adults from the rest of society.

Aisha Harris (@craftingmystyle) says there are two kinds of Disney adults, and we need to make that distinction. (Also, if you know the lyrics to “Kanine Krunchies,” we are eternally impressed!)

Rather than argue a side, one user, who goes by the handle @AdequateEmily, says that Disney is doing something terrifying: “attempting to position its brand as an inherent part of culture.”

Ash Parrish (@adashtra) says Disney Adults are insufferable and that now, thanks to the Storyliving project, now they’ll be back by the “power of a Disney HOA.” She goes one step further, giving an example of a possible Disney Adults scenario once the communities are built: being reported to the HOA because your flowers aren’t the right shade of red (like Minnie’s dress).

One user even says Disney’s doing a big service to non-Disney Adults by containing Disney Adults in these new communities.

Freddy Fazbear (@nyziz) even suggests that the new Storyliving by Disney communities be used as a form of punishment by the government for non-Disney Adults.

Like them or not, Disney Adults make up a large part of the communities in which we live even now. And because the communities are Disney-owned, chances are they won’t be affordable for every Disney Adult, meaning that whether it’s in your community now or a Disney community later, Disney Adults are here to stay. After all, we’ve been called worse, don’t you think?

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
