Disneyland Aerial Photo

Disneyland Aerial PhotoEver wonder what The Magic Kingdom looks like from the air? My wife and I have yet to experience Walt's California creation, but perhaps you'll recognize parts of the park you've been to. Thanks to the US Geological Survey, aerial photos from 2003 have been merged together to provide a stunning overhead view of the layout and size of Disneyland. If you're on a high-speed connection, I recommend the 10 MB file for optimum quality viewing.

I wish I could've seen the park in its original condition, with the great design work of the 50's and 60's era and rides like 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. It seems Disneyland is undergoing constant renovations, with old rides being dismantled and modern ones erected in their place. This is all in order to attract new visitors and entice previous visitors to experience the park again. You never know if your favorite ride will be around for your next visit. Thankfully, with numerous photos and articles, the good folks at keep us informed of the perpetual facelifts and upgrades at 'The Happiest Place On Earth.'
