Pre-Trip Report(10) - Smells 2
Pre-Trip Report - 10 days to go before our split stay at BLT and BWV in a two bedroom suite.
Before I begin, a word of caution. When you set your iPhone countdown app for vacation, pay attention to the time. It seems I used 6am because we have an early flight. This time setting distorted my days count a little.
No worries, back on track. Limbering up for tomorrow's single digit dance.
Last year, one of my most popular pre-trip report posts was related to the ol'shnoze. This post was primarily inspired by the very sensitive nose of my DW. Just like every good movie has to have a sequel, I bring you Smells 2 today.
I used a top 10 list and the responses were awesome and I couldn't believe some that I missed. Rome burning in Spaceship Earth is one that had me lol . DW and I always commented on that one, I left it off the list and it was the first one commenters picked up on.
One that my DW mentions to me now is the smell of the Contemporary upon entering from the BLT sky bridge. First, the sky bridge is awesome. I love making that walk in the AM. I can't recall the smell she's referring to but I believe it's a tropical moisture of some sort. It makes me laugh when she mentions it. I remember the windows always damp. I need to pay attention this trip to this one.
They have some of the best shower gels of any hotels I've ever been to. Just saying.
On my lunch hour, I like to walk the property around my office complex. It's a nice property with a large pond. I sometimes imagine (can you believe it) that I'm in EPCOT and walking near the water. This pond right now does smell like the water in EPCOT. I'm getting excited for the trip !!!
Remember, Disney pays attention to every little detail. They leverage all your senses so don't forget to "Smell the Roses" as they say.
Here's last year's list. Can you suggest others?
P.S. We did restock on Laila on last August's trip.
