Latest Aerial Images of Orlando's Theme Parks (PART 1)

Just a few days ago, the excellent Nearmap website was updated to include the latest satellite imagery of the Central Florida area. This is great news for theme park fans, as this provides a great opportunity to take a peek behind the walls and check out the work being done on some of Orlando's newest attractions.
This update includes photos of Reign of Kong, Mako, Magic Kingdom's central hub, The World of AVATAR, Disney Springs, Soarin's third theater, and more.
