Walt Disney World has released 3D models of their parks in Orlando, Florida with Google's help, they are now part of the "3D Buildings" layer built in to Google Earth. There is also a layer found under "Gallery —>Travel and Tourism —>Walt Disney World" which provides placemarks with more information (video, audio, and fun facts) about the parks and the hotels. Included are complete 3D models and information of the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Resorts.

The result is Walt Disney World® Resort in 3D, an interactive, virtual Walt Disney World completely recreated on Google Earth. This revolutionary project features 3D models of our four Orlando theme parks and more than 20 of Disney’s Resort hotels. Incredible in scope -- containing over 1,500 3D models -- Walt Disney World Resort in 3D is the most detailed 3D rendering undertaken on Google Earth to date.

From the summit of Space Mountain® to the watery confines of the Pirates of the Caribbean®, we invite you to explore the Walt Disney World Resort in Google Earth. It’s the next best thing to being there, says Jay Rasulo, Chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

To view Disney in 3D, enter disney world in the Google Earth search box – you might want to download the latest version, and tick the “3D Buildings” box in the bottom left.
