Diesel fuel from the busses. As a kid I always associated that smell to that of WDW.
Ha! I used to have a similar association, but it was the exhaust from the tram tractors in the MK lot. Way back when that was the only lot there was.
 
So many. The smell of the lobbies at AKL and the Grand Flo. The water on POTC and Splash. The smells of Main Street (even Casey's). The evergreen scent in Soarin'. The smells of The Land pavilion.

Ah good another one of these threads.

If i must, it would be early 90's monorail stank. You know when the AC worked.

The sweet smells of Big Top Souvenirs in the morning with freshly made treats...and Rome burning at Spaceship Earth.

The "new car smell" from the rent-a-cars my mom insists on renting (we're not going off property; would it kill you to take the bus?).

Walking around the World Showcase and smelling all the different foods. As well as walking down Main Street. So many smells to choose from it is hard to pick just one place.

I love the smell of the Grand Floridian. They actually sell that fragrance online and you can buy it and make your own house smell that way. They pump that fragrance in to the vent. I also love the smell walking in Bay Lake Tower. As far as in the parks, I love the smell in Philharmagic during the Be Our Guest sequence.

First time we visited in 1974, the Pirates of the Carribean ride was the most awesome thing I'd ever seen to that point in my life....will NEVER forget the smell. I go back to 1974 every time I ride !!!!
I've heard that it's actually a scientific fact that scent is the sense most related to memory. I don't know if that's true or not but I definitely remember every distinct smell of Disneyworld and have all my life. I love everything about the place really.

Thank you! It's always great to meet a fellow Ducktales lover! I have so many Ducktales shirts that I literally wear a different one on every day of every trip and you wouldn't believe how many people approach me to ask me where I get them. I'm actually wearing a really sweet one right now with Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Webbie, Launchpad, and Gizmo Duck. I was wearing a Gizmo Duck shirt at a comic book convention in Charlotte a few years ago and a guy in a full Star Trek "uniform" as Trekkies put it came up to me and literally stopped and stood in front of me and I said "Can I help you"? And he said "Dude you HAVE to let me take a picture of your shirt!" and I laughed and said "Do you realize how weird it is that YOU want a picture with ME?!" And we both just laughed. Another woman chased me down in the MK one day and said "SIR! SIR!" and I turned around and she said "I'm SO sorry to bother you but my husband LOVES your shirt and was just curious where you got it but was too embarrassed to ask". I started dying laughing and told her and just went on my merry way. LOL!
