UPDATE, MARCH 28, 3:32 P.M.: Four Disneyland cast members were taken to a local hospital this afternoon after complaining of nausea from paint fumes, according to police.

Authorities were called backstage at the theme park around 1:15 p.m. about the "wet paint" odor that sickened the employees to their stomachs, Anaheim Police Lt. Tim Schmidt told City News Service.

The trip to the hospital was just a precaution and all were expected to be quickly released, the police agency's spokesman added.

No guests at the Sniffiest Place on Earth were overcome by the fumes.

First off, Disneyland is just a smelly place. I've never had a visit without being assaulted by somebody's farts. And you can figure out why. Fill people up with $10.00 hamburgers and then shake 'em up like blenders with all those wild rides. Its a recipe for disaster. Possibly worse than that is the dumb schmuck who shows up on 90 degree Anaheim day and doesn't wear deodorant. Throw in a bunch of smelly sneakers, dirty diapers, the occasional pile of puke and well, you get the idea.

Did you notice anything during your visit, Caprice? Hopefully you were having too much fun to be consumed by the odor. Your new hairdo looks awesome, by the way! Cheers!

Marcus Lomelí It always smells bad there! It depends on the area, or what the smell was. Did they drain something recently? That's always a culprit.... Maybe the Rivers of America has just become extra rancid due to lack of fresh rain water?

Was at a seminar at Disneyland hotel yesterday... So I wasn't imagining the smell... It smelled like a grease trap or something... Pretty nasty... Worse than sewage.. And yeh I work for a water district I know what raw sewage smells like
