Not in the lobby on the Beach there but my pictures we in and around the lobby and we have our mini US Wedding Reception at the Luau that night (I am from the UK we had a big party for all our UK guests when we returned).

The staff did perfom a lovely Ohana ceremony for us in the lobby though and presented my husband and I with fresh flower leis.

I know I've mentioned it here before...but there is a retired Scentsy scent that smells EXACTLY like Animal Kingdom Lodge and Kidani Village. Every 6 months, Scentsy allows people to vote to bring back retired scents for a month and "African Mahogany" has made the cut so far. All I ask you to do is go HERE and vote for African Mahogany (you can use all 5 votes for it by clicking it 5 times). If it makes it to the end and is one of the ones they bring back for January...then you will most certainly want to stock up on these. It is crazy how perfectly it matches the smell of those resorts and it will freak you out.

I'm not trying to sell anything...just looking for some fellow WDW nuts to help vote it to the top. Of course if you do love the smell of those resorts then you'll want to pick some of those bars up...so just let me know if/when that happens. Thanks!

My favorite is the Bread Pudding dessert at Ohana. Delightful blend of spices! Wish I could be eating one now!

The big ones are Horizons' orange groves and Spaceship Earth's burning Rome, but the best is Haunted Mansion's cool musty smell. When I was a kid I used to sit at home with my nose to the living room air conditioning vent because it had a similar smell.

I hadn't thought about the Poly Lobby smell, but, yes it is one that brings back memories! We have plans for Oct 2015; I hope the lobby smell isn't altered too much.

Hmmm, can't think of a specific smell that I associate with Peter Pan. What does it smell like to you?
