The Scent of Disney’s Animal Kingdom

I love this photo of the elephants playing that I took during a safari ride.

The number one scent that I associate with DAK is probably not the one you’re thinking of!

Nope, it’s not the smell of wild animals or animal manure!

After working at DAK through every season now, I would have to say that the scent that I most associate with my workplace is sunscreen lotion.

Yeah, slather that sunscreen on!

Working at the front of DAK, it seems like everyone that gets off the trams coming in from the parking lots pauses and literally hoses down themselves and their children with sunscreen.  And, not just the lotion kind that comes in bottles.  Over the past few years, sunscreen aerosol spray has become very, very popular.

At 9am, white misty clouds of sunscreen with a vaguely coconuty smell fill the plaza in front of the entrance turnstiles where I work.

It’s a tropical scent that I’ll always associate with DAK!

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
