Oh there are so many! I love the Poly so the smell walking into the lobby is intoxicating.

The Grand Canyon Concourse used to have a chocolate counter at BVG. I could swear that there was a smellitizer there because the chocolate smell was so good. I ended up buying a chocolate candle from Yankee to recreate that delicious scent. However the chocolates and their scent are gone now

I like the distinct smell of walking into Adventureland. It is very earthy and kind of green pepper-y. Very different.

There is nothing like the water attraction smell. I personally think it is more musty than stale. But it is still like a memory overload when I smell it.

Great thread! Here are my family's votes:

- Christmas Parade Smells
- something around Gastons fountain in NFL
- citrus in old Horizons
- werthers store
- Christmas shops
- sun screen

But I have not noticed the hotel lobby smells ... Guess we better go check it out!

Gonna have to jump on the Polynesian lobby band wagon...takes me back to my childhood and brings a smile to my face every time i walk into that building. I wish they had a candle or something to sell which had that smell.

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.

Although it wasn't a choice, the Magical Express busses have a smell that reminds of of excitement.

I love the smell of all the water rides, and the perfume in Norway Laila! I had to get it!

I think it's a combination of the flowers/plant life and the water. Its somewhat tropical...um...yeah, not really sure how else to describe it. It's just very distinct to me. I don't even know if the smell would be that great for everyone (my wife thinks its just ok), but to me it's just extremely nostalgic b/c that was where we stayed when i was kid on my first trip. As soon as i get a get a whiff all these memories and emotions come rushing back, and i feel like a little kid.

I don't know what the best smell is but the oddest is The Land PAvillion. I think with the water from Living with the Land mixing in wiht the food from Garden Grill and Sunshine Seasons it just makes for a very odd smell. Am I the only one who thinks so? Also the worst smell is the Monorail. It smells like a monkey cage that hasn't been cleaned in a week.
