Does anyone or any CM's on here Know if the scents you smell On Main St. are real for example the smell of popcorn, candy, cookie ect. I heard the scents are pumped in through vents because Walt wanted to touch on all of our senses when we visited DL. Is this a myth or is it fact 

I think it's a myth. With all the food people have walking around, in the trash, and on the ground, I'm pretty sure the smells are real. - 0wnage  154.8 #2645 6:54PM
I heard that vanilla gets pumped through. But I'm not 100 percent sure - Heather  262.9 #1230 6:57PM
I believe the scents are real but they do pump the smells into the street. I think there's a pump in the candy store and the popcorn is dome in a similar way. Another MWer will put you straight if I'm wrong. - BLG  1048.9 #174 6:58PM
I watched a video about the candy store one. It was an official DL one done at the holidays when they were doing the candy canes. - BLG  1048.9 #174 7:00PM
Not a CM but I don't think they have to. There are real popcorn carts and the candy and baked goos are there on Main Street too. - Coaster  19178.6 #1 7:00PM
That's what I heard, vanilla in the summer and mint in the winter but still not sure if it's true. - Simplytink  13.7 #9062 7:00PM
I know that smell it's the same over at the mark twain after if passes by. I think it's the type of fuel they use for some of the vehicles. It's smells like butter popcorn. Weird - Gadgetman  288.7 #984 7:02PM
The only smell pumped in is right in front of the candy store...if u look below the window u can hear feel it coming out the vents.....ok this is weird but has anyone noticed how good the bathrooms smell at dland lately? In adventureland it smelled like pineapple and in fantasyland next to Matterhorn in smelled like bubble gum - Dave  13493.2 #2 7:03PM
According to Disneyland Detective by Kendra Trahan, it is true. Specifically, it mentions vanilla scent being emitted in front of the Candy Palace. It doesn't mention Walt's involvement. - Gruyθre  2.0 #60104 7:03PM
I really don't like popcorn.. But for some weird reason.. When I get to DL, I smell popcorn and I have to get some!!! Lol crazy! - Wilaine  25.5 #6468 7:31PM
I love popcorn, but everytime I get it... It's very salty! I always want to give it back and complain. - Disneyjen  49.4 #4805 7:35PM
Crap, it was so long ago when I worked as a CM in the outdoor vending dept... I can recall the popcorn machines have a small fan at the top that blows the smell of the freshly popped popcorn into the air (the free popcorn that is given to DL from Orville). I was told about and shown the vents in the candy kitchen during orientation but I was never sure if it is the natural smell or scented air. I think it's both. - Polkadobo  384.7 #583 8:30PM
I think the popcorn is salty too but I still eat it - Dizkid  457.8 #474 9:16PM
I loved doing new hire orentations...yes polkodod that's one of the spots we took new hires too in all depts.....there is no other smell vents like that in the park - Dave  13493.2 #2 9:40PM
It's the smell of happiness to me!!!!! - SnowWhite0582  77.2 #3999 11:59PM
It's the smell of success to Eisner and crew... - BLG  1048.9 #174 12:09AM
You mean Iger?? Haha. - LaceySue  329.1 #753 12:20AM
Of course I do, Lacey! It's not my fault I'm as dumb as a bag of really dumb stuff that's all heavy and you know dumb and stuff - BLG  1048.9 #174 12:25AM
Hahah. No worries. I'd been saying his name "egor" up until A year ago. My brother said I was absolutely insane for mixing him up with the assistant from Frankenstien. Hahah. - LaceySue  329.1 #753 12:28AM
Igor. Stupid phone. - LaceySue  329.1 #753 12:29AM
At least mine was phonetically close.....ish - BLG  1048.9 #174 12:31AM
Good smells=good memories - NikkiMickey  1686.3 #99 9:49AM
