Google Helps Explore Disney Theme Parks on Its Street View Map

Google helps explore Disney theme parks located in the United States within California to Florida with the help of its Street View Map with 360-degree panorama.

Before acquired by Google, a team of scientists from the Stanford University began exploring the Street View study as a research project, which the company officially launched the street-level pictures in 2007. Then, Google disclosed the Street View vehicles and pictures covering over 5 million miles in 2012.


However, the company hasn’t made available the Street View photograph of inside attraction of the buildings and rides in the Disney parks. Street View Map is also obtainable for searching the restaurants and shops located at the Downtown Disney District and Disney Springs.

The new update covers more Disney parks including Disney California Adventure, Disneyland, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom at WDW Resort, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Pandora – The World of Avatar, Epcot, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Editorial Content Director, Thomas Smith from Disney Parks worded in the Disney Park blog post that, “To create the 360-degree imagery at Disney Parks, Google used Street View Trekker, a wearable backpack with a camera system on top. The Trekker is worn by an operator and is moved through walkways and structures, automatically gathering images. Imagery is then stitched together to create the 360-degree panoramas you see today.”
