    I checked it out and you are right. They labeled Disney Hollywood Studios as "Magic Kingdom". How long has that been up? Somebody screwed up bigtime.

    That is Epcot the label as MK. Their are many other ***** ups as well. I sent in nearly 40 map corrections. I know there are plenty more.

    Cool Re: WDW Google Maps error?

    I still like my Google Earth find last year - I thought the Monorail was a little bumpy on my last visit:

    "blackstage" is actually overpass road.

    I have noticed a number of errors in the area but I think that one is at least relatively new (the label that is, the road names are a disaster) as I am pretty sure I would have noticed it when I was there 11 days ago.

    Google maps is far away from being perfect...they'll be happy to change that error I guess.
