15 Smells You Always Smell At Disneyland

The happiest smells on Earth.

1. The smell of damp wood on Splash Mountain.

Makes you feel like you're in the South on a mildly humid day.

2. The happy, mouthwatering perfume of vanilla and waffle cones wafting outside Main Street's Candy Palace.

Of course, rumor has it that Disneyland uses "Smellitzers," which emit puffs of manufactured scents into the air. Still: SO GOOD.

3. The salty, musty, and slightly chlorine-like aroma of the water of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Ever notice how the air in there feels thick?

4. And the smoky scent that comes with this curtain of fog on the ride.

Dead men smell no tales!

5. The combo of sugar and cinnamon that hits your nose at the turn of many a corner.

CHURROS!

6. And the tropical essence of pineapple that comes from the Dole Whip stand as you pass the Enchanted Tiki Room.

Pineapple smells like candy.

7. The cold, dusty, attic-esque smell that hangs in the air after you step off the elevator in the Haunted Mansion.

Ahh, the sweet smell of death.

8. The mix of savory meat and sugary goodness you pick up anytime someone eating a Monte Cristo sandwich is near.

The treat, available at Cafe Orleans, is deep-fried with turkey, ham, and Swiss, and topped with powdered sugar.

9. The welcoming odor of oil and exhaust that comes from the Disneyland Railroad.

The second you smell this, you know you're really there.

10. The hearty scent of the juicy, all-powerful turkey leg.

Better than Thanksgiving.

11. The rich and indulgent deliciousness that is the Disneyland corn dog.

Hard to resist when you walk past that truck and smell all the smells.

12. The confusing — but still delightful — aroma of dozens of perfumes wafting out the doorways of Mlle. Antoinette’s Parfumerie in New Orleans Square.

If you haven't yet been to this old-school hidden gem, it's worth a visit.

13. The crisp, cold, metallic tang of Space Mountain.

It's what space smells like, obvi.

14. Of course, don't forget that ever-present scent of salty, buttery popcorn.

It wouldn't be Disneyland without it.

15. And finally, the smoky, burned after-smell of Disneyland's nighttime fireworks.

The smell that says, "It's time to go home. Until next time, Disney."
