Google Maps Now Lets You Visit Disney Parks Without Spending A Small Fortune

Disney's theme parks are wonderful places to visit, and that it true whether you are a young child who is eager to meet characters like Mickey Mouse, or an adult who just wants to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a bit. Taking a vacation to one of the parks is also an expensive endeavor. While it is not the same thing, you can now take a stroll through Disneyland and Disney's other theme parks through Google Maps using its Street View technology.

Zooming in with Google Maps and looking at 360-degree photos is obviously a very different experience than actually visiting a theme park, like California Adventure that sits next to Disneyland or the Epcot at Disneyworld. But in lieu of physically setting foot inside one of the parks, Google Maps is perhaps the next best thing, and certainly better than looking at static photos on the web.

"We’re all about new fantastic points of view. Today Street View is going the distance, from California to Florida, to make Disney part of your world. Be our guest at 11 Disney Parks, and with Street View, anything your heart desires will come to you—castles, rides, attractions to infinity and beyond," Google said in a blog post.

Google deserves a lot of credit for what it has done and continues to do with its Street View technology. What started off as an interesting way to get a street level view of roads and neighborhoods has grown into a unique way of visiting interesting and majestic locales from around the world. For example, you can take a tour of Mount Everest without risking life and limb, explore the sea and get up and close and personal with some of its creatures, and hike the Grand Canyon.

Now you can visit nearly a dozen Disney parks and attractions, including the Magic Kingdom, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mickey and Minnie's House, Disney Hollywood Studios, and more.
