This is going to sound really weird, but here goes. I can't stand to drink the Florida water, but for some reason the water in the showers in the resorts, with its odd Florida smell, is something I really like! I guess it just says to my subconscious, "hey, all's right in the world...you woke up in Disney World!"

I also love the smell of the Norway shop, the smell of Rome burning, the orange grove and piney woods of Soarin', and (another really strange one on the lines of my first one) the smell of the much-maligned Nescafé.

Worst smell, hands down, is the lobby of Bay Lake Tower.

The smell of the h2O shampoo in my first shower. It just screams "disney" to me.

I like the smell of the Poly lobby. But I admit I do like that stale water ride smell, too.

The lobby at the Polynesian. Mmmmmmmmm.....

So much so that i have even started a thread in the past based on just the smell of the poly lobby. I wish I could bottle it up and take it home.

Also, that perfume in Norway is the most disgusting cloying stench ever.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

You didn't list popcorn so I couldn't vote.

I like escalators, because an escalator can never break; it can only become stairs. There would never be an “Escalator Temporarily Out of Order” sign. Only an “Escalator Temporarily Stairs… Sorry for the Convenience.”
