Disney World 3D for Google Earth YouTube Demo

Here is a 3 minute video giving a quick tour of just the 3D Disney World Magic Kingdom – now all visible in Google Earth (read more about Disney in GE and how to turn it on):

I captured the video straight from the Google Earth 3D window using Fraps and used a 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator to fly around and simulate a walking tour of the park. You get a sense of the incredible detail of the park – Disney’s new additions are now one of the most densely packed 3D model collections now available in Google Earth. Unless you have a fast 3D game machine, you may notice the update rate will be a bit slow for this collection. My machine was a bit bogged down at times since it was also capturing the video.

    Our family has visited Disneyworld many time. I find this virtual tour to be very helpful for first timers. It is very accurate and represents the Magic Kingdom in all its glory ( on a much smaller scale). Thanks for the veiw!

  3. I think that Google should do what they have done with Disney Land, with all the major ski areas too. I can’t imagine how cool it would be to look at all the runs and lifts of the ski area from Google Earth.

  4. Wow! that video was awesome. Great Job!!

  5. your parks beautyful! I brought my family sents the 70’s and to disneyland before that, when you had theA,B,C, ticket. I was glad to see one price ride all day . The price was reasonable &the food was great we loved the crystal palace! but about ten+ yrs ago it started!!! PRICES entrance-parking-food outrageous!mag/kdm is basicly unchanged food is crap and so is this virtual tour looks like cardboard cut out!!!!
