Last year Google revamped its Street View cameras with the help of machine learning and AI, helping to build more detailed maps of the real world. Now they have deployed this technology to the “The Most Magical Place On Earth”. From 6 March 2018, you’ll be able to explore inside 11 Disney Parks, getting a virtual glimpse of all their castles, rides, and attractions.
To create Googles 360-degree vision, they used their Street View Trekker. The Trekker is a backpack with a camera system mounted on top. After a Google employee moves through the parks with this system, the images are stitched together to create the 360-degree panorama views we see.

To access the new Street View imagery dated from Feb 2016, Google has provided a handy interactive grid with some of the major starting points. Alternatively, search for one of the 11 Disney parks, and after you have zoomed in on the area, drag the yellow Pegman icon in the lower right corner of your map screen onto a line area that is now highlighted in blue. At this point, you can pan around and check out the imagery in 360-degrees.
