Sound: Ambient noises, walking around the parks - MSEP music, "We're all in this together," etc. They are often experiences I don't inherently like, but have experienced them soooo many times while wandering around the park that they are synonymous with Disney.
Smell: the oranges on Soarin'. "Smells like Horizons!!" (My bestie never even RODE Horizons and says it, lol!) Or, Popcorn...
Taste: Disney Popcorn?
Touch: Soap. Or my pillow at the end of the night.

I know exactly what you mean about the Tea Party, area, it has the same meaning to us. I think there are just some places in WDW that just feel more magical than others, and that's one of those places. We always seem to find our way over there and get something from the Enchanted Grove. The area around the Jungle Cruise does that for me too.

Favorites of the 5 senses

Some of these may be repeats, but here it goes:

Sight: The sign over the highway as we drive into WDW
Sound: The daily opening ceremony at MK - "Good morning, good MOOORning!"
Taste: Mickey Ears ice cream bar. Turkey leg would have to be a close second.
Touch: The feel of the moisture on your skin when you go through the mist in POTC where they project the image of whatever villain pirate they are using at that time.
Smell: Ok, this is a weird one - the scent of the air fresheners in the bathrooms at the parks. Kinda orangey/citrusy but not that fake orange chemical smell. Others have tried but none have succeeded in replicating it.

Favorite sight: The Disney Magic Express counter upon getting off the plane

Favorite smell: that generic hotel room smell - Sounds strange, but it is the smell that sticks with me the most, perhaps it is because it is the first thing that hits me as I try to "take it all in" as we enter the room.

Favorite taste: Mickey ice cream bar is by far #1, followed by whatever been I crack open by the pool.

favorite sound: Yo ho, yo ho...........

Favorite touch:I like stepping onto the grass - any grassy area - in Disney since it is different from what we have here in Jersey.
