    Random things that remind you of Disney

    Ok we all have them, random things that remind you or you associate with Disney. Everyone has an interesting story about why they remind you of WDW, so list 'em here!

    Here's some of mine:

    -90's instumental music; they bring back memories of those WDW info videos my mom would order for me, and the area music of WoL which brings back fond memories of my childhood. Intruments include, but are not limited to bugles, saxophones and cellos.

    -AT&T, United Technologies, GM, MetLife, Nestle, Kodak, Delta Airlines, Exxon and most other corperations that sponsered rides at WDW. They left a huge impression on me, as I associated these companies and their logos with my favorite attractions.

    -That hotel room smell; y'know what I'm talking about, the cleaner that they use to clean the rooms with? Since I often go to WDW (mainly off property), that smell brings back good memories of finally getting to Orlando after that long 3 hour drive.

    -The Florida Turnpike, 'cause its how I get to Disney! The plazas along the way also bring back memories, because I'd get WDW guidemaps and have my Burger King lunch/breakfast there.

    -Osceola Parkway, because there is where the suspense of getting to WDW is at its peak.

    Now, thats just the tip of the iceberg. Feel free to post all the random things you associate with Disney.

    It's amazing to think that this all started with one little mouse.

    -One thing that ALWAYS reminds me of Disney is what i call "Tomorrowland Purple"--its that purply-pink color, but it just always reminds me of Tomorrowland because that is one of the colors of the lights in Tomorrowland at night.
    -Obviously, i also am reminded of Disney whenever i smell burning wood (Rome burning) and when i smell that musty water smell.
    -Newark Liberty International Airport...thats where I leave from to go down to Disney! and its always so strange if i ever fly somewhere else...i get kind of upset if im flying soemwhere other than Disney!

    The bakery at Sainsburys has a vent to the outside, so on a hot day it smells just like Main St.

    The staircase in the parking garage reminds me of Test Track.
    The smell of sunscreen reminds me of Typhoon Lagoon.
    The playing of a game online (a specific one) reminds me of planning a trip to Disney.

    For me it's that dark, watery, almost musty smell that you get in Pirates and Splash Mountain. I can't explain it in words very well but when I smell it, I know it immediately!

    Re: Random things that remind you of Disney

    I just remembered something else: Appliance Direct! These Central Florida commercials drive me insane with its monotone style, and redundancy. Plus, ITS ON EVERY CHANNEL! Yep, but despite how annoying the commercials may be, they always remind me of Disney.

    E.P. Henry Pavers (mostly the reds they use for contrast with the fauna). I see them and can picture a myriad of WDW locations.
