BREAKING: ‘Smellephants on Parade’ Debuts at Magic Kingdom

The new “Smellephants on Parade” interactive experience has made its debut in Storybook Circus at Magic Kingdom.

Smellephants on Parade

Ticket Booth in front of Big Top Souvenirs

Smellephants on Parade is a “search and sniff” activity in Storybook Circus where guests can become a “Whiff-sistant” to Timothy Q. Mouse to find all eight Smellephant statues hidden in Storybook Circus.

Sponsored by Scentsy, each of the “Pink Elephants on Parade”-inspired elephants has a scent diffuser that emits a scent tied to its theme. Guests can begin the Smellephant hunt at the ticket book in front of Big Top Souvenirs, where Cast Members will provide them with an illustrated map of Storybook Circus and a sticker sheet.

Sign on a return slot stating "please return between the hours of 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and bring your nose! - Timothy" with a humorous tone.

The activity will run daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In a flower bed to the right of the Big Top Souvenirs entrance is the caramel apple statue. It smells like an apple-scented candle.

The cotton candy elephant is near the back entrance of Big Top Souvenirs. This is one of the stronger scents, with a cotton candy or fruity gum fragrance.

Corn Dog Smellephant

Finally, the corn dog Smellephant is located outside of the Pete’s Silly Sideshow meet and greet location. We find that it smells more like fried dough, similar to a funnel cake, than a corn dog.
