    DHI 113 - A Brief History of Smell

    For decades, Disney designers have looked beyond elements of sight and sound to create a richer film-like reality in theme park attractions. In this episode, we explore how Imagineers, starting in the 1950s, sought to incorporate aromas to present a richer experience in attractions such as the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Soarin'.

My favorite podcast!

I love this podcast! I love learning the rare history Todd shares and I love the style and production of the show!

This is not just a podcast, Todd treats it like a show and I love it!

Great for the old and new Disney lovers!

Started listening earlier this year and have loved it ever since. I’m a history buff and love anything old Disney parks. Even if you don’t like history you owe it to yourself to listen to see how the parks got to where they are today.

Great way to learn Disney history

I started listening about a couple of months ago when I saw it by chance. What I like about it is that the podcast is not focused just on Disney. There are some episodes in which he gives you a history (background information) of what is going on before the event in Disney history. This gives you a complete understanding how those events influenced Disney. Then he ties it all up at then end so that you have a full understanding. He also shares audio clips of his interviews with former cast members. I’m so excited to go through each episode and hear stories that I’ve never heard before. Sometimes I listen to 3-4 episodes in a row. Great podcast.
