    I just stayed at Port Orleans Riverside this past weekend and really loved the smell of the lobby! Does anyone know what current scent is being used in the Riverside lobby?

    Royal greetings, Kaleb!

    A warm welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us your great question about your recent Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I hope you had a truly incredible stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside! The Royal Guest Rooms as well as the lush, gorgeous grounds and welcoming Southern ambiance make this Moderate Resort hotel my family's favorite!

    Disney Resort hotels totally immerse Guests in uniquely themed experiences, Kaleb. As soon as a Guest arrives at a Disney Resort hotel, they're transported by the storytelling! Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside transports Guests to rural Louisiana in the 1800s. Half of the Resort hotel, Magnolia Bend, is characterized by stately mansions and pristine landscaping, while the other half, Alligator Bayou, is comprised of charming country cottages in the mossy backwoods. Kaleb, surprisingly, scent plays an important role in the storytelling of each Disney Resort hotel. The scent used inside the Sassagoula Steamboat Company (lobby) at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside blends notes of freesia, cotton blossom, and citrus to transport Guests to the Bayou.

    Kaleb, while you won't find Disney Resort hotel-specific scented items available for purchase, a quick internet search will reveal candles, wax melts, and diffusers that mimic the scents used throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. I've purchased a couple of my personal favorites at Bowes Signature Candles at the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs! (This brand is also available for purchase online.) Another option would be to create your own candle at Basin, also located at Disney Springs. Here, you could blend the scents I mentioned above to evoke memories of your stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside! Even if you decide not to create a candle, be sure to stop into the store just for the amazing smells alone.

    I hope this information serves you well, Kaleb. I completely understand wanting to bring the wonderful scents of the Disney Resort hotels home with you to help you relive your special vacation memories! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to revisit us at planDisney anytime. We're here to help you make (and keep) pixie-dusted vacation memories!

    Warm wishes,
