I agree. I did not notice anything different about the smell on this ride.

i don't notice the smells in the express line but in the regular line.


i do all the rides in the regular line early before crowds.
i like to see everything on that route.
i do miss a lot of things when i skip the regular lines.


i use the express lines when the crowds start.

I agree. It's a terrible smell. not piney, or woodsy, or earthy, just dank and awful.

Glad I am not the only one who feels this way! My family loves to tease me over my love for this smell and I am sad when we skip US for IOA.

I love the smell too! But then again, I love most theme park smells- moldy water smell, ride vehicle exhaust smell... I've had sinus problems for the past year or so and have not been able to smell for most of the time. I've really missed the scents! It's amazing when you realize how much smell affects everyday life when it's gone. I'm finally getting it cleared up so I'll have to make it over to E.T. sometime soon..

Slightly off-topic, but has anyone else noticed the smell in the Forbidden Journey queue (inside, not in the greenhouse)? It smells cinnamon-y, but it's so hard to describe.

I think the wonderful smell is just in queue through the forest not on the ride itself. It smells like pine trees, rain, and ferns to me.

I always think of the ET ride when I see a pine tree air freshener hanging from someone's car mirror.

I have thought for a long time that all attractions (WDW or USF) should have their own unique sights, sounds and smells.

Soarin has some smells as does Mickey's Philharmagic, and many, many have their own sounds (theme music, area music, song)....but all attractions should hit all the senses.

In the whole indoor forest-themed queue.

No that`s not where we smell it as we don`t ever go through the regular queue.

According to DH he has only noticed it as we walk in after getting our "pass".
