    Been reading peoples ? and I read that there is something called a glass slipper dessert, this sounds so magical, what is it? where is it? and is it still avail? Also can you tell me about the build your own lightsaber?

    The dessert you mention is actually a chocolate (not glass) slipper. It comes in different flavors and types of chocolate. When I sampled one last December, the slipper was made of white chocolate with chocolate mousse inside, covered with a raspberry sauce.  Quite tasty, and impressive looking.

    It is still available, but must be ordered in advance through the "cake hotline" (407-827-2253 for WDW, and 407-824-7091 for the Magic Kingdom).  It is available at Grand Floridian restaurants and at Cinderella's Royal Table.

    For more details, please click HERE and/or HERE to read prior Q&As with more detail on this dessert slipper from Kim.

    Regarding the "Build Your Own Lightsaber," I created one a few months ago for my son. This custom-built souvenir can be made at both Downtown Disney's Once Upon a Toy store and at Tatooine Traders in Hollywood Studios (near the exit of Star Tours).  For approximately $20 (as of April 2008) you get to piece together either a "Sith" or "Jedi" lightsaber by following the simple instructions provided, and selecting your lightsaber's colors, sounds, etc.  If you have any difficulties, the Cast Members in the area are very helpful.  Best part about it?...my son STILL uses it almost daily.  In my book, that makes it a great souvenir choice!
