Making a Disney World Scrapbook? Get These Disney Google Maps for FREE!

Disney World scrapbook ideas

Updated for 2015!

If you have never seen the Google maps of Walt Disney World, you are in for an unusual visual treat. They make WDW look like a magical cartoon land. I don’t mind telling you that I can spend a lot of time virtually wandering around the different parks and resorts using the maps. This can be especially useful if you haven’t been on vacation to Orlando in a while and perhaps your memory is rusty.

The best part of the Google maps, other than the coolness factor, is the fact that they are 100% completely free to use.

Scrapbooking is a big thing, especially if you just returned from a vacation. Looking for something new to do with your scrapbooks? Use Google Maps to get these super cool images of your favorite Disney locations.

Remember that day you spent at the pool at Wilderness Lodge?

While you can only see one side of the resort, you can see view details of the resorts like rock formations and windows.  The only things missing is the moss hanging from the pine trees and the fun sounds of water splashing coming from the pool.

What about that day the kids spent by the pool at Caribbean Beach Resort? Or renting a boat to speed around the lake?

Have you been saving up forever to splurge on accommodations at the Beach Club Resort so you can enjoy the exclusive sandy-bottom Stormalong Bay pool? Even if you haven’t started the scrapbook yet, these Google map views are a great way to get the kids excited about the upcoming trip.

Another beautiful resort that costs a pretty penny is the Polynesian. But even in drawn-map form, the pool looks incredible. The details include boards by the boat rentals and straw roofs on the huts. I think I can actually hear one of those pool lounge chairs calling my name right now!

Coronado Springs Resort not only has a beautiful pool with a slide, but they also have one of the best playgrounds of any of the other resorts.

I love the “old school” attractions like the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House. I think many a childhood tree house dream was built on a walk-through of this famous tree house.

You can almost hear crypt doors creaking and tombstones quaking at this view of The Haunted Mansion.

If you have read recent Internet reports, Disney is making changes to the Magic Kingdom Hub area. Better snap shot this area now so you can look at your scrapbook photos and talk about what it was like “way back when.”

So where do you find these cool maps?

Use this link to the Disney World site, which will take you right to the Magic Kingdom. 

If you use a Mac like I do, simply screen shot what you need and then print. That is so easy, and best of all, it’s totally free, minus your cost of paper and ink.

There are not many places you can find nearly free scrapbooking materials these days. especially ones as cool as this. And let me tell you from experience, this is a great way to teach kids their way around the different parks without wearing your feet out in the process.

    How do you do this on google maps? I have searched high and low and I can’t find anything that looks like these photographs.

    • Amanda says:

      You probably won’t find them on the standard Google maps. The link is at the bottom of this article, but here it is again. Thanks for reading! ~A.

    • Sharon R says:

      These are beautiful, but your title is misleading: “Making a Disney World Scrapbook? Get These Disney Google Maps for FREE!”
      These are simply screenshots of maps from the official Disney site. I don’t see anything google about them, and you even state “You probably won’t find them on the standard Google maps.”
      Please explain the google part. I clicked on this article from facebook, all excited that I could roam around google maps and look at these cool images! Could you please explain, what am I missing?

      • Amanda says:

        If you go to the regular Google maps, these won’t appear. Did you see this link in the article? It said at the bottom in red, “Use this link to the Disney World site, which will take you right to the Magic Kingdom.” If you missed that, use this (it’s the same link): That goes to the Google Disney maps, which you can roam around and screen shot. The link is also in the comment below in blue. Hope this works for you! ~A.

  2. Amanda says:

    Thanks for sharing! This is a GREAT idea! I went on both the Disney-fied version and regular Google Maps and got some really cool background screenshots for my next scrapbook!

  3. Terry says:

    Amanda – I have tried the links several times. Do you know if they are still posting those types of maps on the WDW website?

    • Amanda says:

      I tried it 1-29-16 and it worked for me. Click on the link “Use this link to the Disney World site, which will take you right to the Magic Kingdom.” it takes you directly to a map. Just zoom in on where you want to go! Thanks for reading…~A.

  4. SarahP says:

    Thanks for the great tip on using the maps for your Disney scrap book. I am running into a bit of a kink though. When I view the map, it has the markers for the attraction in that area (ie: in Fantasyland at Pete’s Silly Side Show,there are 2 icons there, for character appearances). Do you know of a way to view the map without the icons for character appearances, shopping, food, etc.?

    • Amanda says:

      I do not, and I think this is new. They did not look like that when I first wrote this. I meant to try zooming in closer just to see what happened.
