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!

I bet it is the trash moving system or where they load it because we were there at Christmas last year & they were letting people out through the back area on Main Street behind the shops where you come out by Tony's. It smelled so bad in that area. I had to plug my nose until we were out. Just gross. It was that same vomit trash smell.

Plants

I tend to agree with this guess I live in a pretty rural and the back of the property is alot of foliage every now & then when the temp & humidity is just right there is that smell
When I first moved here being a 'street wise' native New Yorker with s vivid imagination I envisioned a body back there

More & more I read this makes me glad I am not to crazy about Dole whips.

Now, every time I am near Aloha Isle I will be thinking of not only smoke but vomit. Not a good combo!
