GREAT idea for a thread - really original!!

Favorite Sight (past) = the old Spectro parade...really miss that!

Favorite Sight (present) = Wishes

Favorite Smell = that early morning Disney resort smell (cholorine, coffee, bus exhaust, wet grass...)

Favorite Sound = the fountain at Epcot - especially when it "explodes"!

Favorite Taste = Beverly!! (I don't *like* it, but it just screams "you're at DISNEY!")

Favorite Touch = running my hands over the mosaics under the castle

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.

My husband was shocked that this wasn't higher on people's lists. He LOVES the turkey leg. He gets one, I get a Dole Whip, and we grab a seat to wait for the Main Street Electrical Parade to start.
