    It shows Toontown is a pretty big area...Disney should think of a retheme...

    I like its use of Photo Synth to create 3D aspects of locations, pretty nice.

    the birds eye view is incredibly detailed. I can tell if a car in the parking lot is a 4 door, 2 door or mini van

    As I noted in my post above, I have some issues with how it was implemented in this beta, but I think Silverlight in general is cool...what's your beef with it, if you don't mind my asking?

    Wow, the backstage views are extremely clear compared to google maps.

    The biggest problem I have with Bing maps is that when you reach the edge of the imagery and keep scrolling, it takes forever to load new images -- and then when it does, it pulls images from a completely different timeframe! You can be scrolling along in Bird's Eye View, and then suddenly all the pictures change to imagery from years earlier and at a different angle. It's disconcerting to say the least, and it makes it very difficult to get your bearings.

    Let's see if I can remember...

    * The 3D functionality is gone, although I'd imagine this isn't a permanent omission.
    * The Silverlight technology allows really fun, fluid motion through the different "bird's eye" aerials, but it's terrible if you're trying to just study one single aerial. Panning or even just zooming frequently causes the beta to switch to another photo in an attempt to give you a better angle. Since both approaches have their uses, I'm suggesting that the current beta approach should be the default, but the other should also be an option. I like being able to control exactly which photo I'm looking at.
    * I can't figure out how to turn off the labels on the streets and so forth. That was easy before.
    * The buttons have been moved from the top left to the bottom center. This seems like a pointless move - makes life difficult for longtime users, and doesn't do anything to help new users.
    * In Help, the FAQ and search functions don't work.

    I'm not a complainer, but since it is a beta and they do want feedback and I do use Bing Maps very frequently, why not speak my mind?

    EDIT: These are paraphrased and condensed from memory, mind you.

    Of course you'd have specific requirements. Now I'm curious what your feedback is.

    Try the bird's eye - it's the reason Bing rules. Nemo is open, TSMM is nearly finished.

    The "Bird's Eye" view .. full close up is amazing! Great detail!
    I updated the initial link - does it work now?

    If you currently use Google Maps to look at Disneyland, try using Bing Maps, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Nice looking maps, but still OLD.

    Bing Maps has been out for a few years. This is a new version. A complete street view would be cool at DLR, but Bird's Eye trumps anything Google has. This new beta improves that quite a bit. AND it adds street level photo views for some of DLR, something Google doesn't have yet.

    There's Bing maps? Wow that's a pretty original idea Microsoft. And why does it take so long to load?

    Anyways, I'm just waiting for what they did to Legoland (Street View) to come to Disneyland. That's all I care about...
