Official Site: Google Maps

While Google isn’t Disney per-se, it is likely you use some sort of mapping app to get to the Parks. When Apple released iOS6, they replaced the built-in app from using Google’s technology to their own. There was plenty of groans and complaints about the change. It is likely that there is going to be a lot of discussion about this re-invisioned app. If you have been waiting for Google to come out with their own mobile maps app, you can finally breathe a sigh of relief!
