Top Ten Smells of Disneyland

We shared a picture recently of a man who had named his son "Pirates of the Caribbean Smell," (it was a joke, in case you didn't see it!) and it got us thinking....what are the best smells at Disneyland?? Here's our top ten, in no particular order. What would you add to the list?

1. Pirates of the Caribbean

Obvs. When you think of iconic smells, this is it! Its like musty/air conditioned/salty amazingness.

2. Original Soarin' Over California

Nothing beats that orangey-pine scent!

Smelling dirt under the elephants' feet, while kind of weird, is actually awesome! Plus the roses in India and ocean in Fiji

4. Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread House Room

Haunted Mansion Holiday is probably my favorite ride of all time, so this had to be on the list. That gingerbread smell while looking at the amazing house they build each year just makes me want to dive into the room and eat it up!

5. Main Street Candy Shop on Candy Cane Day

Candy. Cane. Day. Self explanatory.

6. Main Street Candy Shop Any Other Day of the Year

From fudge, to freshly made candies, to caramel apples, nothing smells better than walking into that shop. (I only got to work in the candy store once while I was a Cast Member. I was at the register that was directly in front of a case of caramel apples. The smell of the Apple Pie caramel apple was torturous for 6 hours! So amazingly good...)

7. Bengal BBQ

I was listening to my Disneyland Soundtrack the other day and while listening to the music from Tarzan's Treehouse, I swear I could smell the Bengal BBQ! They just go hand in hand. I'm hungry just from typing about it.

That overwhelming waffle cone smell is the perfect thing at the end of a long Disney day, when your feet hurt and all you want is to relax with a ginormous sundae. 

9. Tomorrowland

Rosemary, oranges, sage...there's a lot going on wherever you turn. 

10. Main Street Horses

Even the smell of horse poop at Disneyland is better than any other smell anywhere else, because you're in Disneyland!
