It’s like a mini Sequoia National Park.  The Rangers here always have good pins to trade!

The Wilderness Explorer Camp at Redwood Creek is one of our favorite places at Disney California Adventure.

Hit the Trail

Encounter the Great Outdoors along the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. Explore the area in any order you wish and enjoy a “forest” range of activities for everyone.

Practice the art of traverse climbing at the Cliff Hanger Traverse Rock Climb. Glide down a natural rock slide. Clamber up the ropes course to the lookout towers high above the tree line. Practice your park ranger skills on the tire swing at Sequoia Smokejumpers Training Tower.

There’s a world of woodsy fun waiting to be discovered!

Meet Your Spirit Animal

Hidden in the rocks, the Spirit Cave awaits—where brave adventurers encounter their mystical spirit animal. What will the enchanted cave reveal about you? Are you a bear, a wolf or even… a skunk?

Visit the Spirit Cave and find out!

Jan 2020:  We ran into Cinderella just last month at Disneyland.  It was cold and she was wearing her heavy winter gown.

  

Cinderella Castle to Receive Royal Makeover This Spring

Cinderella Castle1

It will be all trimmed in gold!

The Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom is getting a royal makeover!

Cinderella Castle1

Beginning next month, the Castle walk-through into Fantasyland will be closed for 3 months.

The stunning golden castle enhancements will begin in early March 2020 and continue for about 3 months into early summer.

It’s being repainted the same light pink shade used last year at Sleeping Beauty Castle, with royal blue turrets and lots of gold trim.

The castle’s tarps and barriers should go up around March 1st.

This follows the golden enhancements given to Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle last year:

Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland is More Beautiful Than Ever!

dlr7 Sleeping Beauty Castle

May 24, 2019: Grand Re-Opening of Sleeping Beauty Castle

The $300,000 refurbishment of Sleeping Beauty Castle is complete and the Castle’s walk-through has re-opened for guests.

Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle now features vibrant new colors, a new roof, and other pixie dust enhancements.

Sleeping Beauty Castle

May 24, 2019: Sleeping Beauty Castle’s new, much bluer paint job.

“What’s interesting is that we used an ages-old painting technique called ‘atmospheric perspective’ to visually heighten the castle,” said Kim Irvine, art director at Walt Disney Imagineering. “We warmed the pink hues on the lower towers and gradually added blue to lighten the colors toward the top.”

dlr2

Golden accents and a pixie dust sprinkled roof.

The same technique was used for the new roof, now in gorgeous cobalt blue hues. Each of the 18 original turrets was digitally scanned to create the same roofline and sparkly pixie dust was sprinkled on the center roof.

“We focused the golden accents and pixie dust around the entrance to the castle, as though it has been magically enchanted,” said Irvine.

dlr5

The walk-through has brand new LED lighting.

Colorful banners, pennants and landscaping were also included in the refurbishment and the Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through received new paint and interior lighting.

We think it’s beautiful!

The Wonderful Smells of Disney World

****

Welcome to Walt Disney World!

Welcome to the sweet smelling Walt Disney World!

If you’re a frequent guest of Disney World, you know what people mean when they talk about that “Disney Smell”.

Orlando, Florida!

Welcome to Orlando, Florida!

1. The Smell of Florida
It actually starts when you arrive at Orlando airport and walk outside for the first time.  Florida smells like Florida…it has a sweetly fragrant scent due to all the blooming flowers and trees.  Many returning tourists pause for a moment when they walk outside the terminal and just take a deep breath of sweet Florida air.  Ahhh, breathe it in…

Southwest MCO

We ❤ Southwest!

Even more special, there is just something about the way the all the parks, attractions and Disney resorts smell…all so good! Long ago, Disney realized that if the parks smelled good and unique, you’d remember it long after your vacation was over. And, more importantly, you’ll remember how good you felt at the time.

Did you know that Disney World pumps irresistible scents onto its parks and resort lobbies to entice park goers? There are strategically placed devices called “smellitizers” dispersed throughout Disney World resort.  They emit pleasing scents throughout the day and night.

smell

Best Disney Smells!

Ask any cast member to name where a particular scent is associated with and we can all pass this test with flying colors!

2. The Smell of the Water Rides

pirates

Guests say that you could line up bottles of water with scents from the fog from Pirates of the Caribbean and the other indoor water rides (It’s a Small World, Splash Mountain, Living with The Land at Epcot, the Three Caballeros ride) and they could correctly associate the water’s scent with the attraction.  And, they would be right.

3. The Smell of the Disney World Resort Lobbies

The Grand Floridian

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

This is not a hard one at all.  In fact, the fragrances are so specific that you can actually buy candles and air fresheners online with the scent of each resort.

Disney air fresher scents

You can get air fresheners for your home and car that smell like Disney World resorts and attractions!

For example, the Polynesian Resort lobby smells vaguely “Hawaiian” with floral and wood notes.  The Yacht and Beach Club smells of the “seashore”, but not in a bad way, more like a fresh salty sea breeze.

disney candles

Yes please!

The Grand Floridian lobby smells of “rich money” to me, except when the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House is up in the lobby during the holidays.  Then, of course, it smells strongly of freshly-baked gingerbread.

gingerbread8

When the Gingerbread House goes up at the GF every November, the whole Grand Atrium smells like gingerbread cookies!

DCP holiday cookies

We love the smell of Holiday Cookies!

4. The Spa Scent of Disney Resort Soaps and Toiletries

soap (2)

Disney Resort toiletries smell wonderful!

If you’ve stayed at any of the properties onsite, you know this scent!

Disney shampoo

January 2020: We thought all the Disney hotels had switched over to bulk dispensers, but when we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel, they still provided individual portions.  Everything smelled so good!

I call this smell “rich spa”.  It’s so wonderful a scent that guests often pause while washing their hands and just smell the fragrant bubbles.

Disney shampoo

Guests love the Disney shampoo and conditioner so much that you can buy it online!

4. The Smell of Caramel Popcorn Cooking at Karamell Kuche in Epcot Germany

DSCN0588

Making a fresh batch of warm caramel popcorn.

My ICP friend from Germany worked in this sweet shop making the caramel popcorn with Werther’s Original Caramels all day.  In fact, he was kind enough to share the secret recipe with me. (Of course, the recipe makes a huge batch!)

On one of my last days at the DCP program, I stopped in to say good-bye to him and him made a Magical Moment for me by bagging up a small bag of caramel popcorn that he had just finished making.  It was delicious!  So warm and chewy!

Every time I smell the caramel on my Starbucks caramel latte, I always think of him and the sweet Karamell Kuche shop at Epcot.

5.  The Special Holiday Parade Scents

MNSSHP1b

The Halloween parade smells like Candy Corn candy, especially Goofy’s float!

If you’ve ever had the chance to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in the fall, you know that the ‘Boo To You’ parade smells just like candy corn when Goofy’s float passes by.

And love these guys too!

Dancing reindeer on Main Street USA with the delicious scent of baking sugar cookies filling the air during the holidays!

And, if you’ve been on Main Street USA during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party during the holidays, you’ve noticed the smell of sugar cookies baking and the scent of peppermint candy canes is also in the air!

6.  The Scent of Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 7.48.59 PM

Sniff, sniff….Tarzan likes the smell of my sunscreen!

The number one smell that Caroline associates with DAK is probably not the one you’re thinking of!  No, it’s not the smell of animals and animal manure!

Caroline:  After working at DAK through every season now, I would have to say that the smell I most associate with my workplace is: sunscreen!

sunscreen

Clouds and clouds of sunscreen everywhere!

Working at the front of DAK, it seems like every guest 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, aerosol spray sunscreen has become very popular.  They spray clouds of it in the air like it’s free!

By 9am every day, a vaguely coconut smell from sunscreen fills the plaza in front of the entrance turnstiles.  It’s a smell I’ll always associate with DAK! 🙂

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 7.48.02 PM

Spending the day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Yes, Caroline’s wearing some coconut scented SPF 50 sunscreen!

7. The Smell of Burning Wood

Ahhh...the smell of Rome burning...

Hmmm…the smell of Rome burning…

That would be the smoky smell of burning embers from the Rome burning diorama while riding Spaceship Earth.  Just before that scene, as you’re loading onto the ride, you smell the smoldering ashes from cave-dwelling prehistoric man discovering fire.

Spaceship Earth is closing in mid-2020 for a major refurbishment and won’t reopen until early 2022 ahead of the 40th anniversary celebration at Epcot.

8.  Fresh Scents on Soarin’ Around the World

soarin elephant

The elephant scene from Soarin’ Around the World

As you soar over elephants on the African Savanna, you’ll smell fresh grass as an elephant throws dirt into the air.  There’s lots of good scents on this ride.

soarin-around-the-world-scene india

Enjoy the lovely scent of flowers during this scene!

9.  Popcorn! Popcorn!! Popcorn!!!

popcorn2

You can buy the Millennium Falcon filled with popcorn OR filled with french fries!!!

We love the smell of popcorn and Disney makes a ton of it all day long at the Magic Kingdom.

Love, love, love this Mickey balloon popcorn bucket!!! ❤

10.  Funnel Cakes and Churros!

Who can resist the smell of funnel cakes???

Disneyland’s Two Cigar Store Indians

****

indian1

He’s very short! The Main Street Cigar Store Indian wears a blue cape.

When Disneyland first opened in 1955, there was a Tobacconist Shop on the east side of Main Street. It closed in 1990 and was replaced by the Music Company, but its Cigar Store Indian is still presiding over Main Street USA.

Most small towns in 1900 America had a tobacco shop so, to be authentic, turn-of-the-century Main Street USA had to have one as well.

Cigar Store Indians or Wooden Indians were used as advertising means to draw men into smoke shops. The idea derives from the fact that North American Indians first introduced tobacco to Europeans.  In fact, Christopher Columbus wrote about tobacco in his diary in 1492.

The Tobacconist Shop sold an international selection of cigarettes, pipes, pipe tobacco, cigars, and accessories. They also distributed complimentary match books to guests.

indian

The Frontierland Cigar Store Indian wears a reddish cape.

Disneyland has a second Cigar Store Indian over in Frontierland, where he draws attention to the Westward Ho Trading Company, a shop with an emphasis on Disney trading pins.

smoke

Effective May 1, 2019, the Disneyland Resort Parks (Disneyland and Disney California Adventure) became 100% smoke free. Also, the Esplanade (the area between the main gates to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure) as well as the Downtown Disney District are smoke free, as are the three hotels of Disneyland Resort:  Disneyland Hotel, The Grand Californian, and Disney’s Paradise Pier.

In the early days of Disneyland, smoking was permitted everywhere in the park except on the attractions themselves and in their wait queues. The park brochure at the time stated: “You can put out your cigarette in the ashtrays conveniently located at the entrance to every attraction.” In 1955, 52% of men and 24% of women were smokers, whereas today only about 14% of adults smoke. Walt Disney himself was a heavy smoker who eventually died of lung cancer.
