DISNEY RANCH

Disney’s Wyoming Ranch Can’t Seem to Find a Buyer

Earlier this year, a ranch owned by Walt Disney came up on the market for sale and was listed for $71 million.  Pocket change, right? It seems no one else agrees, either. It’s been months, and the ranch hasn’t been sold. To put it in context, Real Estate News says that the average home in the United States is on the market for just 22 days before it sells. With the market the way it is currently, usually, a seller has their pick of multiple offers to choose from. Not so with the Disney Wyoming Ranch.

The property just lowered its price by $10 million. It’s now on the market for a cool $61 million. If you’ve got the cash, you could own a piece of Disney history! From Architectural Digest, “About 90 minutes from Jackson Hole and half an hour from Yellowstone National Park, Diamond G Ranch outside Dubois, Wyoming, is surrounded by national forestland, with 11,000-foot-high mountain peaks framing it on three sides. The 5,000-acre property includes a main lodge with five bedrooms and a huge stone fireplace, as well as two log cabins, a barn with a second-floor office, and a 1,500-square-foot manager’s house with three bedrooms.”

The property, which has been called the most secluded property in the lower 48 states, was held by Retlaw Enterprises, a holdings entity  Walt established to oversee the rights to his name and to manage Disneyland attractions. Does the holdings company’s name give you Yensid vibes? It should. “Retlaw” is Walter spelled backward.

The property’s inability to sell is puzzling, given how absolutely gorgeous it is. We know there’s a Disney lover out there somewhere that would love to own this piece of Disney history. This would be the perfect piece of land to live out your John Dutton dreams, too (ok, that’s not a Disney reference but… if you know, you know). We just have one request- remember who told you about it and invite us for a visit after you buy it!
