    We love staying at the Grand Californian at the Disneyland Resort. I’m wondering what scent is used in the lobby.

    Welcome to the Family planDisney, Eric!

    We don’t talk about Bruno, but we do talk about how amazing the lobby of the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is! It's like stepping into a fairytale! I always feel like shouting "Drawers! Floors! Doors!" just like Mirabel when I take in all the luxurious yet rustic redwood details as I pass through on my visits to Disney California Adventure Park! During wintertime, I also love to pick up treats at the GCH Holiday Cart that are available in the parks but without the long lines! Plus, the live piano music sets the perfect mood, and the artful displays are a feast for the eyes. Oh, and did I mention the life-size cake of the Sensational Six for the Disney100 celebration? It's a must-see!

    Today I got to speak to Arianna, a lovely cast member who told me that the hotel has its own exclusive scent called "Mariposa," just like the magical butterflies in "Encanto." They infuse this fragrance regularly through the lobby, much like Isabella gracefully waves her hand to conjure flowers in her room. I asked if it was available at Acorns Gifts & Goods gift shop on site, but sadly, the scent is not for sale. Sadly, the scent is not for sale, but that just makes it all the more fantastical and magical, don't you think?

    I hope this helps, Eric! If you have any more questions, just dance on back to me here and I'll be happy to offer more tips or suggestions to make your next Disneyland visit even more enchanting.

    Remember, the miracle is you,
