    THAT is the iconic SMELL of DCA:

    Decrepit Coffee Aroma

    That is one thing they really NEED to
    eliminate with all their "placemaking"

    And no, it is NOT an artificial smell.
    It wafts over from LaBrea Bakery,
    And it smells as good as LaBrea Tar Pits!
    (or freshly paved asphault on a 110º day)

    My stomach is churning, and heaving
    with just the mere thought about it.

    Hmm..., doesn,t the orange stinger still have an orange smell? I could swear that I smelled the last time I rode it, but that was sometime last year.

    Actually, the smell is because the coffee roasters for the WHOLE resort are located behind there.

    Honey over in the fields in Bug's land
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    There is an orange scent pumped into the Orange Stinger, although it usually isn't turned on. There's a large button on the operating board that controls it. Take a peek at it, it's clearly labeled.

    All I know is that I've been plugging my nose every time I enter Sunshine Plaza since it opened to avoid that awful coffee smell. My friend and I debated for a long time whether that smell was on purpose or not; I refused to believe anyone would manufacture such a horrible odor on purpose (unless they wanted to drive guests away) but I guess I was wrong. LOL!

    THAT is really funny (the ironic kind of funny) because that was
    the basis of one of the 1st commercials they ran for DCA:

    Come on over and visit DCA! It STINKS!

    Just prior to DCA opening, management was really worried
    that DCA would be reaching maximum capacity nearly every
    day during DCA's 1st year, having to turn people away from
    DCA and encouraging them to visit Disneyland instead.

    Several meetings were held by Disney Management,
    just prior DCA's official opening, in order to determine
    what measures could be taken quickly, to discourage
    people from attending DCA.

    The following were some (but not all) of the various "remedies"
    for this anticipated high attendance:

    * Encouraging people to avoid DCA on the Official Opening Day

    * Eliminating the sale of Annual Passports that included entrance to DCA

    * Advertising that only guests at the 3 Disney owned hotels, would be
    guaranteed entrance into DCA.

    * Adding an awful smell of burnt coffee to the main entry area and the
    entrance to the star attraction of DCA, which had 4 hour plus lines
    durning preview days. (smells were strategically placed in these two
    areas, in order to encourage people to stay away.)



    After the park opened, and management was stunned by how well their
    "counter-marketing" campaign worked, they had to counteract their
    "counter-marketing campaign". They named this "the counter-counter-
    marketing campaing". Several of these counter-counter-marketing
    ideas that were arranged for included:

    * Eliminating DeVine and 3 Bags Full and Adding Disney Characters to DCA

    * Re-igniting the Main Street Electrical Parade vehicles, this time for DCA.

    * Rush construct and open "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire"

    * Announcing two new additions for DCA:
    Tower of Terror and Bug's Life area

    * Opening part of DCA early for Hotel Guests.

    Disney Management ingeniously decided to KEEP
    the Burnt Coffee Smell, and promoted the "DCA early entry"
    by telling hotel guests to: "Wake up and Smell the Coffee"

    You're kidding?

    Jeesh, why do I picture to Disney Heads in a meeting:
    Head A: Okay B, I want you to hit me. But not too hard! Little damage.
    Head B: Okay... ready?
    A: Yah
    B: *Rabbit punches A*
    A: %$#^!!! GOD #%$%$%%(#(%)@#@%%@!*&!!!!!!
    B: Sorry you told me to hit you and damage you.
    A: But not so hard! Not so hard...and...and *cries*
