Disney Founder’s Property Goes On ‘Sale’ for $61 Million

If the only ranch that comes to your mind in terms of Disney locations is the Circle D Ranch — and you have several million dollars — then you might be missing out on quite the opportunity! The Wyoming ranch that belonged to Walter Elias Disney himself is still on the market — and it actually has just gone on “sale” at a price that is $10 million cheaper than it was earlier this year.

Disney real estate is often high on the list when it comes to Disney fans’ big dreams and goals in life; after all, many Disney fans are in fact Disney history buffs who long for some memorabilia that actually played a part in Walt Disney’s own life and the life of the Disney family.

However, the Wyoming ranch that Walt Disney called his own has still not sold — and now its price reflects that (on what is admittedly still a very expensive scale)!

The Wyoming ranch was initially on the market at a price of $71 million, but now it is “only” $61 million. Many homes in the United States of America sell within a month of being listed on the market, so the fact that the Walt Disney ranch in Wyoming has not sold yet is certainly strange.

Architectural Digest described the Walt Disney ranch, which is called the Diamond G Ranch, as a “5,000-acre property [that] 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.”

According to Architectural Digest, the Diamond G Ranch is also “about 90 minutes from Jackson Hole and half an hour from Yellowstone National Park” and the location “is surrounded by national forestland, with 11,000-foot-high mountain peaks framing it on three sides.”

To many Disney fans, this Wyoming ranch would sound idyllic, but it would also sound lovely to any nature lovers or anyone who wants a rustic, remote lifestyle near cattle and wildlife like the elusive mountain lion! If you’ve got $61 million to spend on this “discounted” Disney property, are you interested in this Wyoming ranch — or would you rather live on a Disney property close to Walt Disney World Resort and the Disney Parks, like this one?
