Whenever the Google View Street View Trekker is spotted in a certain location, a virtual tour of that place is sure to follow. Well, Orlando Weekly has reported that someone who was wearing the photo-capturing backpack was seen walking around the Magic Kingdom earlier this month with some cast members. Folks on Twitter were also quick to report their Trekker sightings in various parts of both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot parks, which means we might be able to tele-visit Orlando's Disney World via Street View in the future.

At the moment, the only Disney parks you can visit from the comfort of your own home are Disneyland Paris and the Walt Disney Studios Park in the same city. Both experiences are also quite limited. The Trekkers' presence in Orlando could change that, but it might take some time before Google can set up a virtual tour for us. We've reached out for confirmation, and will update this post if we hear more.
