See this photo of the Magic Kingdom? It’s actually a screen shot of a Google map.  These map drawings remind me so much of the Disney parks maps you get at the park entrances. I didn’t notice an actual name, but I refer to this map as the “Google Parks Maps.” People waste a lot of time wandering around Disney parks when they are unfamiliar with the lay out. If you are planning your first trip to Disney World, you need to familiarize yourself with the lay of the land. Wasted time wandering = wasted money.

Those of you who know your way around blindfolded you can use these images for virtual vacations or even for scrapbooking purposes!

Note: The map photos you see are screen shots, but I provide several links at the bottom of the page for how to get to them. Using the link, just click on the map and scroll over to your favorite resort. I started with Wilderness Lodge.

Seriously, the only way this could be any cooler would be to have the ability to get a little closer to ground level and to see inside…oh well.

Then I headed over to Bay Lake Tower. Mentally, I am on that skyway, walking over to get a cupcake at the Contempo Cafe at the  Contemporary Resort. I just love the little “Google” pool chairs and umbrellas.

Haven’t been able to get to Orlando see the new Fantasyland portion of the Magic Kingdom park? Just scroll the map over to the Magic Kingdom, use the little map tools, and zoom in on Fantasyland. The first map photo doesn’t show the new Seven Dwarves Mine Train ride construction, but to show you they update maps as new entertainment options are added, check out the second photo

I love physically walking around the Disney resorts, but I have this full-time job in Alabama, eight hours away from Orlando, so I don’t get to Disney World as often as I would like. These maps are such an excellent *FREE* way to take a little mental vacation, when perhaps you had a rough day at work, or when you just need a few minutes of “Disney” time while you save your money for your next trip.

The Polynesian Resort pool not big enough? Scroll the map over to Typhoon Lagoon water park – now those are some BIG pools!

This is a map I really need to study, because if I’m not at the Typhoon wave pool, I am LOST! Everything seems to look the same to me from the ground level. This photo is not zoomed in all that far; when you use the Google link, you can get a closer view using the Google tools.

Best of all, you can use the higher Google map views to see entire resorts and parks.

Don’t know your way around all the parks that well? Zoom in on the map and start learning your way through the parks without exhausting yourself walking miles and miles.
