Fall is here, which means it’s officially candle season. This year, along with your classic fall scents, like apple, pumpkin, and clove, you can also fill your home with the smell of Disneyland. That’s right — there’s a new line of candles inspired not just by Disney films or characters, but by the landscape of the Disney parks themselves. The candles are not officially Disney-branded, but with scent names like Pineapple Whip, Pirate Life, and Flying Over Orange Groves, you can see what they were going for.

The candles come from a brand called Magic Candle Company, which also sells other fragrance products like air fresheners, bath fizzies, and “shower melts,” which slowly melt during your shower, releasing the comforting fragrance of a bubble bath without the full tub of water.

Though Magic Candle Company does not claim on its website to replicate the smells of the Disney parks, reviews left on the product pages suggest they do just that. On several blogs, Disney diehards argue that Imagineers manage guests’ scent experiences as precisely as they do the rest of the parks. Whether or to what extent this is true, you can’t deny that Disneyland is full of distinctive smells. We’re curious to know whether these candles have the power to transport us to the happiest place on earth.

Here are some of the collection’s most intriguing Disney-inspired scents:

Pineapple Whip

As good as Dole Whip, without the line.

Buy: Pineapple Whip Candle, starting at $16.95 for 8 oz.


Light this candle and imagine yourself watching the fireworks, absurdly long churro in hand.

Buy: Churro Candle, starting at $16.95 for 8 oz.

Grey Stuff

This one is listed at $1 less than the rest of the candles, maybe because its name sounds a little gross. But if it’s good enough for Lumiere, it’s good enough for us.

Buy: Grey Stuff Candle, starting at $15.95 for 8 oz.


When we think of the Haunted Mansion, we think of those egg-shaped dune buggies, but cedarwood and vanilla sound very nice too.

Buy: Haunted Candle, starting at $16.95 for 8 oz.

What does animation smell like, you might ask? Magic Candle Company says this scent will “animate your soul” with a blend of apricot, peaches, and green mangoes.
