    Using WDW Google Earth easy or hard?

    Would you say that using the new Walt Disney World Google Earth is fairly easy or hard? My initial thought is hard, but after about 15 minutes of testing things out it was more manageable.

    I found it tricky, but I blamed it on the laptop that I'm using at the moment. I'm more of a PC person. I got better, but I still haven't been able to get it to move just the way I want.

    I don't know if I would necessarily call it difficult but it's really slow, but that could be my computer.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    Are you able to navigate looking from street level. So would I be able to see say....Cinderella Castle looking up?

    I was checking it out yesterday for a little bit and couldn't figure out how to look at the places on street level. I wanted to walk through the resorts.

    lori,
    The way to get to street level is to zoom in as far as you can, then tilt the view up a little (hold down CTRL on a PC or command on a Mac and use the mouse like you do to navigate), zoom in some more, and repeat until you're at street level looking ahead. For some reason, GE doesn't let you zoom all the way to ground level when viewing from directly above, but it will if you're viewing from an angle.


    Now reach under your seat and pull out those 3D glasses...

    Just kidding, this isn't a 3D presentation.

    I have to add that it is still hard to navigate after several days
