    I'm obsessed with the fragrance in the Art of Animation resort lobby. Any ideas on what it is?

    Hi Betsy!

    I was thrilled to see your question because I am also obsessed with the Walt Disney World Resort fragrances! Each Walt Disney World Resort lobby has its own unique fragrance. Catching just a whiff of the odor can transport you to the most magical place on earth. I remember the first time I stayed at Disney's Beach Club Resort and smelled the amazing combination of green clover and aloe! I wanted to re-create the fragrance in my home, so I found a manufacturer that sells scent machines and cartridges that emulate this same fragrance. 

    While Walt Disney World pumps the scent into the air through vents, you can recreate the smell with candles, reed diffusers, or fragrance machines. Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Pop Century uses a scent infused with green mango, lime, papaya, and an ocean breeze. I found that a popular bath and candle store has a fragrance called "Island Margarita," which is a close representation of the signature scent. You can also conduct a search on Etsy for Disney-scented candles. You will find candles themed after almost every Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    During EPCOT's International Food & Wine Festival last year, I found a candle vendor set up around the World Showcase that sold candles that smelled just like the Walt Disney World Resort lobbies! I stocked up! I highly recommend visiting Disney during that time to check that out!
