Apple’s spaceship campus is big enough to hold Disneyland


Well, they're both working to build Tomorrowland.

Boasting a 100,000-square-foot fitness center, 11,000 parking spaces, 2,000 bike parking spaces, 2.8 million square feet of office space, and a 100,000-square-foot lab thrown in for good measure, Apple’s “spaceship” Campus 2 is pretty darned massive.

Struggling to wrap your head around that? Then consider that it’s big enough to house pretty much the entirety of Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. And we’ve got the (mocked-up) photos to prove it.

Created by designer Louie Mantia, the clever use of Photoshopping shows that, at 1:1 scale, Disneyland can be squeezed inside Apple’s still-in-progress headquarters, whose construction we’ve been eagerly following here on Cult of Mac.

This isn’t the only jaw-dropping stat we’ve heard about the new Apple campus either.

The site could also accommodate the saucer section of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701-A, as first appeared in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home; the Empire State Building lying on its side, and a T1-Class Supertanker. In terms of total number of employees, the Campus 2 is also equivalent to 35 fully-stocked Boeing 747s or 160 double-decker buses.

Sadly, despite Apple’s historic connections to Disney thanks to Steve Jobs, I doubt Tim Cook really intends to construct Disneyland inside his company’s new HQ. Although, if he did, that’s got to be the best employee perk for a tech company in history, right?
