Walt Disney World Resort Lands on Google Earth

Planning a vacation to any of the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is now, almost, as fun as being there. By harnessing the power of Google Earth, Disney has created an interactive, three-dimensional tour of Walt Disney World's four theme parks, as well as its 22 hotels and resort, where travel agents can virtually bring their clients closer to the theme park experience. Walt Disney World Resort in 3D includes links to Disney's online travel-planning tools for travel agents, making it a breeze for travel agents to work with their clients to plan and book vacations.

“You know the phrase ‘next best thing to being there’? Walt Disney World Resort in 3D is going to deliver on that,” said Randy A. Garfield, CTC, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales & Travel Operations, Disney Destinations, LLC and President of the Walt Disney Travel Company. “Guests and travel planners can now explore our world with just a few clicks of a mouse, and they can book vacations while being immersed in what the destination has to offer.”

Travel planners can now click on images of their clients’ favorite attractions and hotels to purchase tickets, make reservations, and map out the vacation that is right for them. Begin the virtual tour with a stratospheric view of the globe, and skydive past the flatlands of Florida to a view of the Seven Seas Lagoon in the Magic Kingdom. Agents can then fly through the streets and explore in and around the hotels and resorts, down Main Street to Cinderella Castle, from the heights of The Tower of Terror to base of the Tree of Life.
