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. White it can be hard to find exact replicas, Disney scented candles do exist! There are some companies that specialize in Disney themed smells!

Disney Hotel

One of the companies we mention below is the Magic Candle Company. Be careful with this company! Some of the scents are spot on while others do miss the mark.

If we have it listed below it is because many people say that particular scent seems to be spot on. If you are looking for a different scent, 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, lets stop talking about it the smells and we will jump into how you can have those amazing scents at your home!

Bath and Body Works Warm Apple Pie was the go-to scent for this attraction, but it has been continued! You can try Apple Cider from Yankee Candle or…

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.

Cinnamon spiced vanilla candle

Of course we all love to munch on Disney snacks! This Spiced Vanilla candle will remind you of churros!

Haunted Mansion

This seems to be the hardest scent to replicate. 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 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 World! 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.

Soaring Orange by Mort and Co Soy blend candle

Flying on Soarin is one of our top 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 that evoke memories of that ride.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Scented Candles

Flight of Passage

Target Coastal Linen

This scent 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 scent. You can find it on Amazon. This is a seasonal scent so keep a look out in the winter to see if prices drop!

Walt Disney World Resorts

Many of the Disney Resorts have their own special scent. If you have time during your Disney World 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.

Polynesian Hotel

Magic Candle Company Polynesian

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” scent. 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

Beach Resort Magic Candle Company

Beach resort candle magic candle company

Many of the resorts smell similar, and the Magic Candle Company has reflected that in their scents. The Beach Resort, Contemporary, Floridian, and Yacht scents are all pretty similar with an aloe and clover variation.

Main Street Melts Candle Co. Floridian

This candle is pretty close to many of the resort lobbies! (Main Street Melts uses all natural soy wax.)

Contemporary Hotel

The contemporary hotel has a green aloe and clover scent when you walk in. Walt Disney World is now selling their own candle in celebration of their 50th Anniversary.

This is a new scent that smells 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 one up! It would make a nice souvenir!

Reed Diffusers

If diffuser oils are more your style there are great options for you available on Etsy! You can get that Disney inspired 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!

Bibbidi Bobbid Candle Disney scent reed diffuser

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!
