    Smells of Spaceship Earth

    I have looked on here and through the podcasts, and this may have been addressed and if so I apologize, but here goes. I rode SE several times over this past weekend and have a question about the garage scene. I know the burning wood smell is piped in the burning Rome scene. I noticed a strong "garage" smell as we went through the garage scene, so I wondered if it just comes from the car and the other stuff in the garage, or if they actually pipe in the smell. I actually thought I was imagining it, but I noticed it each time and my husband did also.

    They will be artificial and piped in as opposed to the real deal, at least going by other attractions.

    I would imagine it is piped in because the car prop is probably drained of all fluids.

    The smell didn't really bother me; I just thought it was interesting because it became strong through there and I wondered if it was intentional.

    What I've learned with Disney.. if there is a strong smell within a ride it is usually intentional!

    hahah depending on what time of year it is that's very true. (But I still think that smell is intentional! Disney did pick Florida for his theme park )

    I bet if they started to use Jeremy Irons for the voice narration again the smell would go away...
