Disney World in 3D for Google Earth

[UPDATE June 4th: Now available - read more here.]
According to USA Today, as early as next Tuesday Disney World will be available in 3D for Google Earth. Included will be Walt Disney World’s Epcot Center, Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and 22 Disney hotels and resorts. I’m particularly intrigued by the comment the “map” will have “interactive features”. Apparently you’ll be able to see videos of rides, and make reservations by clicking on a hotel you see. I’m wondering if we’ll be able to watch rides move. Google’s John Hanke is quoted as saying the huge 3D collection is “truly innovative and unique”. That certainly makes me anxious to see this. The screenshot from the article certainly looks quite detailed:

Expect to see a review here at GEB as soon as this goes public.
