All guide maps for the four Walt Disney World parks have now been updated to include FastPass+ enabled attractions, along with the FastPass+ kiosks and service center locations.

The Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom  mapswere released early in the year, with Epcot and the Magic Kingdom now completed. We've got scans of the new maps in the gallery.

Their goal is to have the maps be consistent with Google Maps. But I agree it makes the hand out versions stale. I do wish they brought back the more whimsical maps. Another issue is that all maps are oriented by the compass instead of the entrance at the bottom. This is less of an issue for AK and MK since the entrance is already from the south. But with Epcot and HS, I feel like I'm looking at the maps upside down since you enter from the north, even if the maps are represented correctly geographically. I prefer these maps be POV with the entrance at the bottom. They would be more helpful as you walk through the parks.

Is it odd to anyone else that Gaston is the chosen character to represent NFL on the cover of the new MK guide map? That's because: "No one's slick as Gaston No one's quick as Gaston No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's..." :rolleyes:

This has warmth! The color schemes of each land gives you a feel for them while still being useful. Plus the land looks populated, things are in motion there is steam out and boats moving about. This one to me is my favorite, a beautiful water color like page that looks like its out of a storybook, perfect for the magic kingdom.

I guess for the app it's okay, but for the official park map you need some warmth! You would think they want guests to be wowed by something to head in that general direction in the first place. A map for many is a place to start, and if they aren't wowed on paper why should they head in that direction. With MM+, they don't have to! They planned it out on the website 60 days in advance!

They are the same maps that are on the MDE app...a very "google maps" view of the parks. And I agree, they are not inviting.

Am I the only one that thinks these maps lack an artistic flair? Almost nothing shown looks beautiful or inviting, it all looks hollow like a pre rendered model in blender or something.
