People looking to explore Disney World from the comfort of their own home can now do so with Google Maps Disney Parks. The update to Google Maps Street View was done in collaboration with Disney and will allow users the chance to explore destinations from Disneyland, Epcot and the Magic Kingdom through an immersive 3D browser. The Google Maps Disney Parks feature will hopefully give users the tools to better plan their visits to Disney Parks, and also give Disney the ability to promote all the best features of its spaces.
The technology behind Google Maps Disney Parks can currently only be viewed through a screen, but there is hope that a VR version may soon be available. While this new technology may not turn tourism on its head, it does give travelers a unique way to enjoy their Disney trips, and lets those who can't make it enjoy a fairly realistic taste of the Disney experience.
