Disneyland Resort Paris In 3D

In case you missed it, way back in May 2009 Disney unveiled its beautiful 3D model of Disneyland Resort Paris on Google Earth.

The entire thing is in high-detail, colorful, 3D goodness with animated, musical, pop-up windows that can help you plan a trip or learn more about the park.

Disneyland Paris in Google Earth

According to the post, 85,000 photos were used to re-create the park in virtual 3D form! That is mind blowing.

What looks good? The Sleeping Beauty castle is especially well done (of course). See the illustration. Also Alice's Curious Labyrinth, Swiss Family Robinson Tree, and well, basically everything. Does anyone know if they plan to do the rest of their parks? (Florida was done in 2008).

If you haven't seen it, I suggest downloading Google Earth and having a look around. Maybe you'll be inspired to plan your next vacation there!
