    The last Snack Attack was SO much fun! And I swear to you, the versions of these desserts at the party tasted even better than their in-park counterparts!

  2. says

    Carrie — Thanks for the positive review!! I think Snack Attacks are a blast, and the freshness of the treats DOES make them taste better!

  3. Galloping Gourmand says

    I might be there that weekend, but I don’t know if I will for another month. So if you see a Man wearing a monorail shirt staring longingly at you don’t be alarmed.

  4. says

    Oh how I wish I could make it to this!!! Any chance of a similar awesome event at Disneyland this year?? *hint hint* If there’s one thing that makes me wish I were back on the east coast, it is Walt Disney World! :)

  5. Josh says

    I really hope you plan another event like this for the fall! I am planning a trip down for F&W Fest and this would be the perfect way to celebrate with other Disney food fanatics like myself!

  6. Susan says

    Sounds yummy! Us locals are hoping to join you! But a true Disney snack-fest would not be complete without some krispy treat Mickey heads-on-a-stick dipped in chocolate and smothered with sprinkles!! :)

  7. Dawn says

    OOOhhh! I think we are going to plan a short trip just to attend this if we can get tickets on thursday!! We’ve always wanted to come! :o)

  8. says

    GG — Ha ha! We’ll keep an eye out for you!!

    Amanda — I know Heather would love to do an event in Disneyland!! We’re planning on it, my friend!

    Josh — We will likely do another Snack Attack this Fall! Stay tuned :-)

    Mike — Woo!!! That’s awesome. Would love to see you there!!

    Susan — Ha ha; we did have the krispy treats at our first event, but the cost has been prohibitive since. Maybe we’ll have a surprise this time!

    Dawn — Awesome!!! I hope to see you there!

  9. Amy says

    This sounds like a lot of delicious fun! My fianc√© and I will be there on our honeymoon that week. I think we’ll definitely try to get tickets for this!

  10. Pat says
