For Disneyland fans that can’t make it to the parks as often as they would like, Google Maps will soon be your new favorite site. Google employees have been spotted inside the parks wearing Street View Trekkers. This wearable backpack is outfitted with a camera system on top, and its portability enables Google to gather images while maneuvering through tight, narrow spaces or locations only accessible by foot.
The cylindrical camera that you see on top sits above the wearer’s head and constantly takes pictures. It shoots 360 degrees in every direction, even straight up. After the camera has made its way through the parks, it is up to Google engineers to piece it all together. GPS coordinates are also added in so you can type in your favorite attraction in Google Maps.
Although Disneyland Resort officials have confirmed the Google project, Google has not given a date for when Street Views of Disneyland would be available. Fingers crossed, it will be soon!
