Perhaps I'm way behind on things, but when did WDW post a full, interactive 3-D rendering of the entire Walt Disney World Resort online? I just found this and I was AMAZED!
Boy, I can't wait to go back... :D

I hadn't seen that page before, but I knew the models were available in Google Earth. Not every square inch is modeled; I believe they did all four theme parks and the resorts.

It's still really cool, but the models can take up a lot of computer resources, so a high-powered computer would help.

Wow! This is awesome! I used to "spy" on Disney World using Google Earth a while ago, but have since switched to Microsoft's "Live Maps". I'm re-downloading Google Earth now! I can't wait to try! Thanks for sharing! :number1:

It's cool, but don't expect to fly through it like they do in that video unless you have a super fast connection and a computer created by the Gods themselves.

I don't know if this link will work, but I just got back from WDW last week and the other night decided to do a slideshow on Snapfish of 3D model screenshots from Google Earth - here (http://www1.snapfish.com/thumbnailshare/AlbumID=244121862/a=6269044_6269044/t_=6269044). There are a couple of side-by-side recreations of pictures I took that are kind of fun.

I like the "comparision" pictures in that slideshow.

I kitted my computer out quite nicely last year, and it's still a little joggy! Though not too bad. I have problems with the "control" more than anything. I'm too used to video games, I just wanna run around with a little mickey mouse or something :P.
