Note: Things have changed since I first posted about this on the Disney Echo, sad to say. Previously, MapQuest was offering interactive, overhead photos of everything at Walt Disney World, as posted in this message thread.

I'm sad to report that MapQuest has since changed its website so you can no longer take your own interactive "helicopter" ride over WDW courtesy of MapQuest.
:unhappy:

However, there is good news! GlobeXplorer's ImageAtlas is providing the same service that used to be found on MapQuest. Here's how to see Disney's Contemporary Resort: Click here to get to GlobeXplorer's ImageAtlas and then enter
  • 4600 North World Drive
  • Lake Buena Vista
  • FL
  • 32830
in their search by address entry box, and then click on its "FIND IMAGE" button. After you zoom out, you'll see the Contemporary Resort and then you'll be able to scroll around in your own "helicopter" to see the Magic Kingdom, the Polynesian Resort, and all the landmarks and roadways of Walt Disney World!
:thumbsup:

Note that the original links below now merely display a map of the locations rather than an overhead image. But you can use them to remind yourself of landmarks to look for when you're scrolling around at GlobeXplorer.
:smart:





Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

Bet you didn't know you can view aerial photos in color of Walt Disney World right now online! Yup!! Here's a list, but on any of them you are free to move the view around in the direction you choose.

Magic Kingdom Resorts Area

Rich,
I click on each of these and I keep coming up with a picture of the Magic Kingdom - any idea what's going on? :confused:

Thanks for letting me know.

These links were working last night -- I'm looking into what happened that they aren't showing the areas they're supposed to. I apologize.

It might be that when their server gets busy it results in errors like that. That night I had put out word on rec.arts.disney.parks that the picture links were here -- and there might have been so many people trying them at once that it overloaded things.

It is working for me.

That must have been the problem - the links are working okay for me now too.
Thanks for the pictures!  ;) Can't wait to get my new printer hooked up so I can print out a couple!

I think the problem is at their end - - after you look at a few of them, their system gets overloaded and you are brought back to the same location again.

You can still manually move it around, though.

So my advice is to look through the list and find the ones that most interest you -- then when the link obviously is no longer bringing you to where you want to see, you'll have to manually move the arrows around until you get to that area. Zooming in and out helps locate where you are, too.
