The Disney Parks use different scents throughout their resorts and parks to fully engulf you in the Disney experience. Think about it – the Pirates of the Caribbean has a totally different smell than Spaceship Earth!
This is all intentional to immerse you in the story of the attraction. Each of the hotels have their own signature scents!
Disney fans have been scouring candle companies for years trying to find the best Disney scents to replicate in their own homes. While it can be hard to find exact replicas, Disney scented candles do exist! There are some companies that specialize in Disney themed smells!
Best Disney Scented Disney Candles
If we have it listed below it is because many people say that particular scent of candle seems to be spot on. If you are looking for different candle scents, be sure to do your research so that your money is well spent.
The Magic Candle Company has a wide variety of products – they sell wax melts, room sprays, air fresheners, and fragrance oils – there is something for everyone!
Well, let’s stop talking about it the smells and we will jump into how you can have those amazing Disney scents at your home!
Magic Kingdom Scent Candles
Pirates of the Caribbean
If a pirates life is for you try this candle! This is a great scent even if you don’t love the attraction. This candle smells just like Pirates of the Caribbean.
Bath and Body Works Warm Apple Pie candle was the go-to scent for this attraction, but it has been continued!
Don’t worry though, we have two other candle options that smell like PhilharMagic.
The first candle option to try is Apple Cider from Yankee Candle.
- Relax with the soothing fragrance of fresh Honey crisp cider warming up a glass
- Premium-grade wax that delivers a clean, consistent burn
- 75-110 hours burn time
- Measures 5.6"H x 3.9"D
- 100% recyclable in partnership with TerraCycle
The other candle option is:
- This bubbly, sparkling fragrance will make you want to raise your glass. Candle comes topped with a decorative lid.
- Bubbly Champagne, Sparkling Berries, Sweet Orange with Essential Oils
This is one of our favorite 3D attractions in the Disney Parks. Disney Imagineers pipe in smells during the show – the apple pie one is super distinct! The champagne scented candle will also remind you of the show but is a more subtle scent if that is more your preference.
- Bath & Body Works
- Patented soy wax blend with natural essential oils
- Quality lead-free wicks
- Amazing quality from beginning to end
Of course we all love to munch on Disney snacks! This Spiced Vanilla candle will remind you of churros!
This seems to be the hardest scent to replicate in the form of a candle. The Haunted Mansion has such a specific smell – musty, old building, mold, sort of sweet, dust….but somehow it isn’t a bad smell!
Nobody seems to have been able to exactly replicate the smell of the Haunted Mansion, but these candles come close with slight variations:
Another Disney staple is the Dole Whip. Sure, you can make it at home, but it sure doesn’t taste as good as it does in Disney!
Close your eyes and this smell will have you at Aloha Isle Refreshments. If you love fruity smells this is a great candle for you.
Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
The smell of this candle will bring you right back to the Ice Cream parlor on Main Street, USA!
Main Street Bakery Scents
- 🧁 MAIN STREET BAKERY : Transport yourself back to happy memories of the scent of Main Street USA. It's a fresh, clean scent that will fill the air with magic.
- 🌺 SCENT PROFILE: A scent filled with the delicious aroma of vanilla cake.
- 😀 YOUR HAPPY PLACE: : Take yourself to a happy place with scents inspired by Disney. Walter & Rosie Presents The Happiest Scents on Earth.
- 👍 LONG BURN TIME: Each candle is filled with 11 ounces of wax. Candles have a burn time of approximately 40 hours.
- 🕯️ SUSTAINABILITY: Made of blended soy wax. Provides an amazing fragrance throw while maintaining a creamy look & environmentally friendly soy wax.
This candle seems to hit the spot for that amazing bakery smell you often smell while walking down Main Street.
Flying on Soarin is one of our top Disney rides in EPCOT (for those of us without motion sickness!). Soarin gives us so many scents as we are flying around the world. These are a few candles that evoke memories of that ride.
Reviews all love this candle!
Disney Animal Kingdom Scented Candles
Flight of Passage
This candle is popular among people who love the Flight of Passage in the Animal Kingdom!
You can also keep a look out for Bath and Body Work’s Frozen Lake candle. You can find this candle on Amazon. This is a seasonal scent so keep a look out in the winter to see if prices drop!
Walt Disney World Resorts Scents
Many of the Disney Resorts have their own special scent. If you have time during your Disney Vacation hop on the bus or monorail and visit some of the other resorts! They all have a different theme and even smell different from each other.
The official signature scent of the Polynesian is called Hibiscus Passion and is from a company called Scent Air. Unfortunately, Scent Air only sells to businesses, but lucky for you this Polynesian candle mimics the scent pretty well!
If you want to go through Scent Air you will want to choose the “Paradise Breeze” candle. Just know you’ll have to order a fragrance machine as well as a scent cartridge. (Personally, we prefer just burning a candle!)
Beach Club Resort
Many of the resorts smell similar, and the Magic Candle Company candles has reflected that in their scents. The Beach Resort, Contemporary, Floridian, and Yacht scents are all pretty similar with an aloe and clover variation.
Animal Kingdom Lobby
- This blend of earthy sage, luxurious talc, and lemon-lime creates a natural harmony
- Long-lasting 110-150 hour burn time
- Quality paraffin-grade candle wax delivers a clear, consistent burn
- 22-ounce scented candle measures 6.6" H x 4" D
- Natural fiber candle wick delivers the best burn for each fragrance
We love the Animal Kingdom lobby! It is so unique and you feel like you have been transported out of Florida. This candle will make you feel like you are back at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, ready to hit up Boma for dinner!
Grand Floridian and Boardwalk
- Green Clover Aloe - The famous fragrance found at your favorite Disney Resorts. A fresh, clean fragrance that is a reminder of grassy summer fields blowing in the hot summer breeze, mixed with the subtle, cooling aroma of aloe.
- DESIGN: A simple black and white design complements any décor and our new 2-wick design promotes a cleaner, complete, and even burn, eliminating excess soot and smoke when kept properly trimmed.
- CRAFTSMANSHIP: Each candle is exquisitely handcrafted, individual wicked, poured, and infused with fragrance oil. After the candles have cooled, they are topped off, cleaned, labeled and shipped to you within 1-2 days. They do not contain any artificial dyes or colorings.
- FRAGRANCES: Falls Bridge Candles feature over 160 fragrances. Our specially blended wax and our new dual wick design allows for stronger scented candles as well as a cleaner burn with little to no soot build up and a complete burn without tunneling.
- SIZES: Our candles come in three convenient sizes; our NEW 6-Ounce Sampler Size, as well as our 16-Ounce Jar and our 26-Ounce jar. The (optional) lids for the 16 and 26 ounce are a beautiful, rustic black metal/tin lid with either a "Star" cut-out or a Handled Lid. Our 6-ounce candle has a plastic snap lid.
This is a candle sleuths have found on Amazon that seems to bring a lovely aroma that mimics the Grand Floridian and Boardwalk! Try this Disney scented candle and see if it hits the spot for you, too!
This soy wax candle is pretty close to many of the resort lobbies! (Main Street Melts uses all natural soy wax.)
Side note, the Main Street Melts shop has tons of other great candles that smell like Disney!
The contemporary hotel has a green aloe and clover scent when you walk in. Disney is now selling their own candle in celebration of their 50th Anniversary.
This is a new scent that smells just like the Contemporary. From what we can tell you can only purchase this candle at Bayview Gifts.
If you are in Disney during the celebration you may want to consider picking this candle (or a few) up! It would make a nice souvenir!
If diffuser oils are more your style there are great options for you available on Etsy! You can get that Disney like scent using reeds.
Try BibbidiBobbidiCandle who sells a countless number of Disney smells! You’ll find food smells from Main Street, Soarin, Ariel’s Grotto, the Tiki room, and more!
Time will tell if The Walt Disney Company will start selling some of their own themed signature candles. If they venture out beyond the 50th Anniversary Contemporary scent we think that they will for sure hit all our favorite scents spot on.
These are all some of the best loved candle scents out there. Candles are such a great way to bring Disney home. (Another great way to enjoy Disney at home is with your Disney pins!)
With your favorite scents burning in your living room, throw on your favorite Disney movie on Disney plus and you have made your home the (second) happiest place on earth!
