Nasty smell by Aloha Isle / Dole Whip

At our trip to MK last week, there was an awful garbage-y smell at the "standing eating area" to the right of Aloha Isle. I had to move away it was so bad.

I noticed this on a previous visit as well.

I'd have mentioned it to a CM, but just then DW and DD showed up for us to ride Pirates.

Anyone else noticed this?

Yes, every trip, to my family and me it smells like sour throw-up..I mentioned it to a CM the last time we were there, and they stated "I don't smell anything"..ok then. Not sure what it is, unless it is the designated area everytime someone has to be sick?!? Who knows.

When I worked at Splash Mountain, I took the Utilidors all the way thru to the Frontierland entrace, the entrace to Adventureland was a bit down and the smell from Aloha Isle made that entire area wreak! From what I understand, it's from the mix/ingredients sitting out for a while. I can't remember for sure anymore, it was years ago. All I remember is it had something to do with the mix they use.

All I could smell in that area was the strong cigarette smell drifting over from the DSA.

One more opinion wouldn't hurt would it? I believe that if one of Robo's famous maps exists for this, you would find that the entire area is close to where the Vacuum Garbage pipes outlet. Just a little to the side of the show building for PoTC, if I remember correctly. But, wherever it is exactly located would be relevant on certain days if the wind direction happens to be just the right way.

Air flow around the buildings might just zero that location in. I remember that same thing years ago at Casey's, but that could have been totally unrelated.

Well, if proximity is an issue...
The closest attraction is Pixie Hollow.

And, everyone knows, TINK'S in there.

Not exactly where I was thinking. It's the other end of the parade route that connects directly with Frontierland. Just down that backstage road is the collection point that I recall from a few years back, Keys to the Kingdom Tour. I don't know why it wouldn't smell bad all along the Street in Frontierland, but there is a tunnel near Aloha and that might concentrate and chimney air directly to that spot.

I don't know, just speculating, but, heck, it's possible!

Dry. Very dry humor.

It's probably from the DSA right there...all the butts and other toxins.

~Wow. That sounds pretty offensive. You should send Disney an email, maybe they will effectively address this issue by adopting some different cleaning and disposal practices that will facilitate a much more pleasant environment for everyone. Thanks for sharing!
