I asked why the orientation tour still talked about it and they just laughed. When the tours would come by and the tour guide would give their little spiel to the new hires we would debate whether or not to go out and tell them the truth.Been to Dland thousands of times since I left and have never smelt artificial vanilla being pumped out, just the normal smells of the candy kitchen.(If you want to smell something sweet, the round white machine by the windows of the candy kitchen contains about 50 lbs. of melted chocolate, when you take the lid off the smell of chocolate will just about knock you off your feet!)
    This is a Disneyland myth that while once true, is false.

    Pirates... no question! The absolute best smell in the Park. Jungle Cruise has is a distant second for me!

    Thank you! I can vouch for this because I've thought that it was strange (and
    wonderous) that they would actually keep changing the smell (and it's not
    always the straight vanilla!).

    Sometimes, it does smell "sweet" and other times, more chocolate.

    But they must have the ductwork set up so that the smell really does "waft" onto Main Street. (They could easily have a fan system that'll duct it up and away).

    Also the Bakery must have something like it too as I always smell something like cinnamon rolls everytime I go by.

    Re: Favorite Smells in Disneyland

    Definately POTC, but I also love the smell in the que for Indy. Can't stand the burnt smell of the coffee in DCA...have to walk through there quickly to get past it!!! I'm so glad that other people love the smells...I often say to whoever I am with, "that smell reminds me of POTC, or Indy at Disneyland" and I get that strange look that I am so used to. But then again, so much stuff reminds me of Disneyland that they are probably just thinking "not again". I actually once said "the way the lights are on at that gas station at this time of night reminds me of Disneyland". hehe Don't know why. Maybe I was just really wanting to go back.
