    OMG some of these responses are :rotfl2:.

    We call it the gag-o-rail. We have stayed at the GF and CR many times and have been on the monorail first thing in the morning and it still makes me gag and I don't even want to sit or touch anything.

    OP I would love to smell that smell you are talking about when we get on the monorail, but it hasn't happened yet.:sick::crazy2:

    To me it smells like bandaids, and cheap fake leather.

    More precisely, the monorail smell is as if an incontinent male cat got trapped in a YMCA bathroom. When we stay at monorail resorts, we tend to take the boat. ;)

    I'll put in another vote for it smelling like manure. Or as Costanza would say: "ma-nure". My daughter and I just rode yesterday and as soon as we entered, we looked at each other and said it in unison :rotfl2:

    :rotfl2: All these responses are hysterical! And although I agree to a certain extent with the band-aid smell. I associate the smell with LOTS of great memories - which makes it a pleasant experience - even with the funky smell!

    But it's NURE and that's good and MA...;)


    ITA - it's not a smell I must endure, it's a memory maker:goodvibes

    I've stayed at CR many times and I still get excited when I see the monorail (Ironman-orail?) come through. I love sitting at the Contempo Cafe and I'm always facing the monorail.

    I always think it smells like a dairy barn! My husband (who had never been in one) thinks I'm crazy. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks along those lines!

    My family thinks it smells like a petting zoo. We haven't taken the monorail in years because of the smell, we opt for the ferry. LOL on some of these responses!!

    We own a '08 Ford Expedition that occasionally smells just like the monorail when the heat/air condition is going. I am not kidding, the smell is exactly the same! They even have a fix for it that involves running some sort of gas through the vent system, but eventually it comes back. There are times when we are all in the car and pulling out of the driveway, the heat kicks on, and in unison we say "Aaaahhhh, monorail." :rotfl2: Our own little disgusting memory of Disney.

    We still love the monorail though!

    Since it has been observed that the odor is found beyond the monorail and since odors are typically moved along by the air handling systems in both buildings and transports, then it seems obvious that WDW treats the air before it reaches our nose. Fragrance in the air is all a part of the imagineering. Not much at WDW is an accident if it adds to the magic. That'll work.
