I don't care how you spell it, I just want somebody to tel me how to eat them without squishing down and having the cream coming out the sides

And no fair teasing us with snacks that are only available with the price of a meal (Zebra Domes and Oreo bon bons). That should be set aside for your next article, "Great Desserts of the World"

That's why I didn't include the bon bons - but the zebra domes are actually available as stand alone snack. Go to the Mara, check out the refridgerated section - they are available in boxes of five.

I knew the Zebra Domes were for sale in the AK CS; didn't know whether the bon-bons might be available at BC/YC CS as well.

To eat the Napoleon: you can TRY standing it along one long edge and cutting slices with a knife. Or you can just deconstruct it a bit, taking off the top pastry layers before you begin cutting. Take a bite or cut a piece of the pastry, then take a bite/cut a piece of the bottom layer that starts with the filling.

Besides, it's vacation. You're supposed to get your fingers all sticky with ooey gooey goodness, right?

I don't know the answer to this one. If anyone else does, I'd love to hear for sure!

Dole Whips are lactose free but not dairy free. They contain casein which is a milk derivative and can cause issues to those with dairy problems.

Very enjoyable read, thank you. I had my first Napoleon on our trip last week, and it was amazing!

I did notice a couple of typos--in the Zebra Domes section (yum) the word respectively is missing an e, and in the Wishes Dessert Party section, you have one place where "dessert" is spelled "desert". (Sorry to be picky about that--can you tell proofreading is part of my job?)

Now I need to go find an at-home snack that will not be nearly as tasty as a Disney snack!

No need to be sorry! On the contrary, thank you for pointing these out... I *did* ask for this very sort of feedback.

Errors corrected.

You still need to correct the part about Dole Whips being dairy free. They are lactose free...there is a difference and someone with a casein allergy can have their day ruined by thinking they are dairy free and eating one.

Can you take another proofing? In the Zebra Dome descriptions, incredibly is missing an "i" and "their" is spelled "there". Sorry, had to chime in. I think we will choose one of the snacks you reviewed before we go and make it a point to get one this November. Thanks - well done!!
