    Neat map

    Thought this was interesting. Roll your mouse over the landscape and it tells you what it is.

    Adam, there's pictures of the WDW boneyard out there somewhere...I can't remember if I've seen them on this site or another one. I remember seeing some remnants of Mr. Toad in it...Hmm, maybe I'll have to search for that.

    I looked at the map and then switched to live local to get a "birds eye" view to see what all the stuff is closer!

    A lot of large commercial buildings and facilities use "chillers" to cool their process water prior to it circulating through their HVAC, refrigeration and climate control systems. They are similar in purpose to cooling towers, but the water never sees atmosphere, it stays in a closed loop and the heat is removed by circulating it through refrigerated system. A facility the size of MK would require numerous chillers- hence "chiller plant". I would imagine there are several of these scattered throughout the WDW property.

    Very cool map- thanks for posting!

    Disney uses a central chiller/hot water plant that feeds all of the interior hotels (Contemporary, Poly and the Magic Kingdom) hvac systems. Back in the 80 they use to also run two GE turbines to generate their own electricity and make hot water. Now they just buy the majority of their power. I do not know if the current plant feeds the Floridian and all of the other buildings. My information is a little old. I was able to get a hard hat tour back in the early 80s. It was pretty cool.
