Bring the Smell of the Disney Resorts to Your Home

By Keith Mahne




Smells can transport us back to powerful and emotional memories from the past more effectively than any of the five senses. Any die-hard Disney fan knows that Disney "smells" play a huge role in our nostalgic love of the Parks. The smell of Pirates of the Caribbean water, burning embers in Spaceship Earth, the smell as you walk past the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, USA, and one of my favorites, the smell of a Walt Disney World Resort lobby. You know the one I'm talking about! It's one of the first things that greet you as you enter your favorite resort (except if you are staying at the Grand Floridian in which case Richard would be the first thing) and your brain's endorphins go into overdrive because you realize your in the vacation kingdom of the world. What if I told you that you could bring these magical fragrances into your own home today? Allow me to fill you in on how you can bring the magical smell of a Disney Resort to your humble abode...




Disney's Contemporary Resort lobby (c) Disney




If the beauty and detail of a Disney Resort isn’t enough, these magical destinations have a unique and distinct scent that, from the moment you walk in the door, hits your nose and you become instantly happier, as if a puff of pixie dust just smacked you upside the head...which usually happens when I enter the Magic Kingdom. Certain smells can be extremely powerful mood enhancers and the clever folks at Disney know exactly which ones will have you feeling like you are “home.” Though I adore all of the Disney Resort lobby scents, the ones that have had the most profound impact on me—triggering serious feelings of nostalgia and joy—are the Grand Floridian, the Contemporary and, of course, he Polynesian. (You can find our new Polynesian Resort fragrance by clicking HERE)

The name of the scent that fills the lobbies, specifically in the Grand Floridian, Contemporary, Bay Lake Tower and the Yacht and Breach Club is called “Green Clover and Aloe” and we here at Disney Avenue have recently created our brand new venture called the WEDway Candle Company and recreated this fabulous fragrance to perfection!

I can tell you with 100% certainty (as my own candle is burning right beside me as I write this) that we got it right and boy are my endorphin's kicking! If I close my eyes, I could swear I was inside one of those beautiful lobbies now...

We here at the WEDway Candle Company offer this fragrance by the name of the resorts that utilize this scent. The fragrance comes in a variety of ways. A 8 oz. or 16 oz Candle and a 4 oz. Room Spray (which I love). Here is our description:



Contemporary:


Reminisce about this ultra-modern Disney Resort and be reminded of those spectacular views, dazzling pools and walks to the Magic Kingdom as the Monorail breezes by on a daily basis with our SPOT ON fragrance from the WEDway Candle Company. This scent features a watery green floral permeating the air with a bouquet of fresh Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and Ylang and finishes with a light dust of cedar trimmings.



Floridian:


Be reminded of the place where Victorian elegance meets modern sophistication and reminisce about relaxing in the sumptuous lobby as a live orchestra plays ragtime, jazz and popular Disney tunes every time you smell our Floridian fragrance. This scent features a watery green floral permeating the air with a bouquet of fresh Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and Ylang and finishes with a light dust of cedar trimmings.



Yacht Club:


Be reminded of relaxing family retreats in an inviting New England-style lakeside hotel environment with our Yacht Club fragrance. This scent features a watery green floral permeating the air with a bouquet of fresh Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and Ylang and finishes with a light dust of cedar trimmings.





Beach Club:


Be reminded of family vacations spent basking in the casual elegance of this charming, New England-style Resort with this fragrance from the WEDway Candle Company. This scent features a watery green floral permeating the air with a bouquet of fresh Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and Ylang and finishes with a light dust of cedar trimmings.

    1. Hi Shannon! Happy to hear you enjoy the music player as much as we do. These are a collection of classical versions of Disney songs, park music loops, etc. gathered over the years. Some you can find for sale but many were recorded live or put together by myself like the Polynesian Resort Loop or the German Pavilion Area Music Loop.
