  • [Chat] Things that remind you of DL but...

    Have you ever been reminded of Disneyland after putting chlorine in your pool? Do you think about Dumbo the flying elephant after eating peanuts in a plane or someplace really high? Can a twinkly spec on the ground take you back to the vary first time you saw tinkerbell fly at disneyland?????

    Well it may sound silly, but sometimes random things remind me of disneyland. Weather it's a sense memory thing, or something that resembles a building at disneyland. So what non-disneyland thing reminds you of disney???

    The smell of fog. Instantly transports me to my neighborhood when I was a fifth-grader, on the verge of tears because I missed Disneyland so much, and the smell reminded me of the Matterhorn and Pirates and so forth.

        Every time I smell hydraulic fluid in an elevator or something, I immediately think of Star Tours! Also a couple of times I have smelled musty places that smelled like POTC. Or if I smell a fog machine I think of Indy.

          OMG! That actually reminds me of when I broke into tears at the StarTours gate. This was during Main Street Electrical Parade's farewell and my dad wanted to ride ST before the final parade. I was in absolute panic but luckily we saw the parade.

            Yeah the early morning wet grass and chlorine both remind me of Disneyland. I love the smell of wet grass now.
            Happy Halloween!!!

              The smell of waffle cones reminds me of Main Street. The smell of diesel exhaust reminds me of the diorammas on the train route. And I can't help but compare all fire works displays to what I have seen at DL.

                Hmmm......I can't really say. I know that on a hot summer day, I take refuge from the heat on Pirates of the Caribbean - and I recall a very special day in early August 1984 that I spent at Disneyland with my Grandpa Rex, Grandma Ginny and cousins from Ohio. It was so fun. When we come 'up the waterfall' I remember a certain feeling I had as I gazed out the doors......feeling the heat come in, but being cool from the A/C system.......I'll never forget that day and sometimes I remember that feeling I had.

                Other things that remind me of Disneyland is when I'm coming around the 55 Freeway from the 91 and can see the tip of the Matterhorn in the distance - the same goes for when I come around the 57 from the 91.

                As for the chlorine mention in the OP - the smell of chlorine always reminds me of the Dancing Waters outside the former Bonita Tower of Disneyland Hotel - as well, the underground waterfalls - always had a 'smell' of chlorine......and I just remember that alot.

                  I do the same thing in regards to the fireworks. As for the diesel, It reminds me of alot of disney things. (none have come close)

                  There was a Cesars Dog food commercial this past year that had a whistle in it and it reminded me of the whistle when you walk through the turnstiles.

                    So many things remind me of DL when I'm away from the park. I have this lotion, Caramel something...it smells just like walking past the candy store on Main Street! It instantly transports me back to my childhood in the 80's, wandering toward the castle with my dad. :gladsad:

                      Being really really cool.....I know that doesn't make sense and I should say, Being bundled up....I always think about how being cold at disneyland isn't as bad as being cold out in the "real world" (that and the hot chocolate helps too) Maybe its just the "bubble"

                            Sometimes it reminds me that about 7 miles away is Knott's Berry Farm too

                            If you saw Disneyland, wouldn't it remind you of Disneyland?

                            I saw eggs this morning and it reminded me I needed to buy some.....

                              No. Well yes but that's not a real thing. I do have one though. Sometimes I smell something that somewhat resembles the scent of New Orleans Square. You know, that kind of smoky smell?
