"3D Fly Over" At Last Available For Disneyland and Disney California Adventure " In Apple "Maps" App !

Two weeks after the "3D Fly Over" feature became available for Disneyland Paris on the Apple Maps App for iPhone - iPad - see my previous articles HERE and HERE - Disneyland  and Disney California Adventure receive the "3D Fly Over" treatment as Apple has updated its application with new South Cal HD satellite pictures!

It's a news that Disneyland and DCA fans who own an iDevice will probably happy to hear and the result, as you will see, is the ability to "soar" over the parks stunning that you can discover from any angle. All you have to do is to go on "Maps", and enter as keyword "Disneyland", choose the satellite view, and then the 3D view. Although this "3D Fly Over" still need to be improved and very probably will be in the future as long as you don't zoom too much in the pictures the view will be okay and the buildings will not look distorted.

Let's see how it looks with iPad screen captures, starting by the Disneyland Park, and of course click on each pictures to see them in big size. The first aerial view below shows the entrance of both parks.

An aerial view over Main Street U.S.A and the Jungle Cruise, with Tomorrowland on the bottom left.

A great bird eye view over Frontierland, The Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain.

A closer look at Big Thunder Mountain and Frontierland river from another angle.

A closer shot to New Orleans Square, Haunted Mansion and Splash Mountain, as well as Tom Sawyer's Island.

These two other views also show Frontierland with Sleeping Beauty Castle and Central Plaza, and on the second shot you can see the huge parking lot outside the park on the top left.

A great view of Fantasyland, including Disneyland's Matterhorn and even Big Thunder on the top right.

A bird eye view of the park as seen from behind New Orleans Square. The building in the bottom right corner is the Indiana Jones Adventure show building.

From over Big Thunder, looking towards Tomorrowland.

A great view of Autopia, the submarine lagoon, the Matterhorn and on the top left Story Book land, Casey Jr, and It's a Small World.

A closer shot of Tomorrowland and the Matterhorn.

Let's fly over Disney California Adventure with this great bird eye view of the park!

A more vertical view over Grizzly River Run and the parks entrance.

Two other views of DCA showing Buena Vista Street, Hollywood Pictures Backlot, A Bug's Land and the Tower of Terror.

The App is also great to have a look at the Disneyland Resort Hotels and on this next view you have the three of them all together on the same shot!

We will end by a last bird eye view of DCA and this one is interesting as the big space / parking lot that you can see on the top is the location where very probably WDI will build the DL Anaheim third park when the WDC will decide it!

So, if you own an iPhone or iPad, go ahead, jump to the Apple Maps App and have a nice flight over Disneyland and DCA!
