Question? Why do they not cut your Minnie chocolate caramel apples in the park? Every other candy company I have been to will cut them for you but not at Disneyland. Is it a weapons concern? Because they have to have knives in the kitchen. Every time I eat one it takes me forever cuz I have to use a plastic knife.

They do not have the appropriate food service areas to cut them. Cal code requires a three compartment sink or continuous replacement utensils. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 7:17PM
Trust this lady. She knows her food! - lostgirl7988  697.8 #278 7:22PM
They can give you a plastic knife for you to cut it - BaseballMickey_CM  7562.5 #11 7:50PM
Hey thanks! I was Just wondering because cutting it with a lastic knife Is really really hard! :) - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 7:48AM
Because you are not a baybay. They may not cut your steak for you either. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 6:21PM
false. i am a baybay. someone chew my food for me too. - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 7:16PM
Ouch... I didn't read anything 'baybay' like with the OP's question. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 7:21PM
He's just kidding MrsMears, Madsdad is almost always kidding! In a good way of course!!:) - secretagentangel  4658.5 #28 8:30PM
Ok, I'm obviously under a huge misconception as it seems the lounge standards of 'kidding', IMHO, fall outside of the standards of politeness and respect. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 8:54PM
I think we sometimes forget, not everyone knows us well enough to know this is a joke, which to many of us, it is. For that reason I think we should just think about our choice of words or adding, I'm kidding or something to not give the wrong idea to someone who doesn't know every person here. Just my 2 cents. I know madsdad is messing around but sometimes we forget others don't. - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 9:19PM
Well of course I'm kidding, but I also figure that since the poster is not a baby (Judging from their ability to use a computer), a just kidding would be redundant.And thank you secretangel, I really wouldn't want to hurt someone's feelings at any rate. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 9:44PM
MrsMears he is absolutely teasing. Madsdad is one the nicest and most respectful people on MW. He would never hurt someone's feelings on purpose. You implying he is impolite and disrespectful is rude. You've been around the lounge long enough to know better, and to know how we all tease each other and be silly. These kinds of comments just cause unnecessary drama. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 9:54PM
Hmm.. an eye opening and interesting interpretation, Zoe. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 10:08PM
Not really. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 10:09PM
Right, well I do see myself standing correct. My apologies to not only madsdad but the OP since it wasn't really for me read anything into your comments. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 10:22PM
No worries, really was just being playful. The use of baybay instead of baby was trying to use a teasing tone. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 10:46PM
Nick needs a spanking. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 11:16PM
No, dv, he would cry like a baybay - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 11:18PM
I like being rewarded donnie! - madsdad  1868.2 #92 11:18PM
Are we really going to have to explain every time we're joking around? - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 11:19PM
I volunteer to do the spanking. πŸ‘‹ - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1505 11:22PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘Œ - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 11:29PM
I accept this. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 11:31PM
Yesssss!! I have this in writing. 😘 - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1505 11:34PM

This was funny πŸ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 6:23AM
This makes me super jolly. 😊😊😊😊 - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 9:11AM
Don't forget your safe word! - pinkmonkeys  528.7 #393 5:37PM
And yet another reason to always carry a shiv. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 7:30PM

*makes note to pack shiv for this weekend's trip - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 9:57PM
Good question! I do know that Marceline's Confectionary will cut them for you, even if nowhere else will. - BelleintheTARDIS  258.8 #1267 6:38PM
Yes they have for me too. - PrincessDuckie  904.9 #202 7:18PM
That's because Marceline's has a full counter and sink area to clean their utensils. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 9:00AM
I wish they did too, it's what stops me from buying one - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 9:20PM
I thought the point was to eat the caramel apple on the stick - cesium55  531.8 #390 10:05PM
Some people don't have good teeth or caps and crowns that can get damaged. Like me. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 9:03AM
That's why one wouldn't buy it - cesium55  531.8 #390 12:27PM
I always bring mine home to cut up. Its like extending your Disney time. - VampJade  20.2 #7299 8:17PM
Good idea! - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 7:42AM
This is absolutly a time for all the amazing minds who work for Disney to come up with a really cool machine for us to put our apples in at the parks and it can make bells and whistles and such and out comes a perfectly cut apple (kind of like it was at Charlie and Wonkas Chocolate Factory!) - secretagentangel  4658.5 #28 5:29PM
sorry, kind of like it would happen if it was wonkas! - secretagentangel  4658.5 #28 5:30PM
No idea. Do they just refuse? Or will they tell you why? Might want to just ask why. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 5:55PM
Ya. Last time I asked why to two different CM's, yes... I ate two in one day, and try just said try cant. I asked why and they said they're not allowed and they just can't. Mysterious, no? - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 6:01PM
That is interesting. Hmmm, could have something to do with how they are packaged and sold. May be that they are not able to garantee sanitary conditions at the counter. It probably is not set up as a serving area and so they cannot prepare your food. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 6:07PM
That could be a reason. I hadnt thought of that. All I know is the CM's kind of acted odd about it. I didn't know if anyone knew why for sure. Or if someone in the park could ask the same question and see what they're told. Maybe I just got two mysterious CM's ;) - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 6:10PM
CMs in food sales have several rules they have to follow. I wouldn't take it personal. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 6:21PM
@MPark... That's what I was thinking. I would hate for them to cut my food with a knife that just stayed on the counter all day. Also they would have no way to wash it while working the register. - Boundin  687.3 #288 6:24PM
I know it also might depend on who their lead is. But most of the time Marceline's in DTD will cut it for you! :) - uhhliana  32.9 #5716 9:08PM
My guess is they're so proud of their work they don't wanna cut it up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but in real life I have no idea - lostgirl7988  697.8 #278 6:47PM
That's the reason why I always bring my apples home to eat. I couldn't imagine myself biting it with my teeth given how big they are. - SafariSkewerJessica  1533.1 #111 6:54PM
I would venture to guess it is either due to not having a sanitation station set up or some sort of union rules. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 7:22PM
Whether they cut them or not .. I have to try one now !! Lol ! You've made them seem so delicious !! Lol ! I've just got to taste one 😁 - eviljules  1404.0 #124 7:23PM
Yes, not everyone can just bite into those apples. There is just no way I would even attempt, for fear of hurting or breaking my teeth. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 7:46PM
Good to know . Last thing I need to do is break a front tooth while on vaca 😁 - eviljules  1404.0 #124 7:56PM
Especially if you have braces :/ - mante90  8.5 #12203 10:54PM
No braces for me :) lol ! But my daughter has the Invisalign braces .. So good point - eviljules  1404.0 #124 11:08PM
They are truly soooooo good! - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 7:41AM
Art shouldn't be cut, but it can be eaten - princessfrozenbanana  13.9 #8973 7:26PM

I have no idea as well. I Just wanted to say I love your profile pic! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #120 8:26PM
I noticed that too and was going to comment. Great work Miss-E-Mouse! - aprilinjune4  483.5 #438 9:07PM
Thanks Miss-E-Mouse! :) - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 7:43AM
When I was there in October, I was seriously impressed with a woman at the next table by us outside Jolly holiday who had cut hers into nice neat slices with a plastic knife! I would have thought the knife would break for sure, but it did not! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 10:08PM
Clearly she was a dainty and patient woman. 😏 Everything I am not!!! - PeachKay  311.1 #846 5:51AM
I mean, I have TMJ and have been told not to bite into whole apples, BUT, it's what makes me feel like a grown up since I don't have to cut up my food. For once. If I couldn't bite into an apple, I wouldn't fault others for it. Lesson learned--let's not judge each others biting capabilities and we're good. Capice? - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 11:22PM
Have you tried acupuncture for your tmj? I had it bad and then three sessions later it was gone. It's been almost 7 years and its still gone - Queenof2princesses  259.6 #1262 8:25AM
It takes a bit of planning, but you could get an apple for a dessert first. So step one would be to purchase your apple, step two is go to a resturaunt that has real flatware like the Plaza or Carnation Cafe (you get the idea). Step three is use a real knife to cut your apple. If you're really thinking, you could recycle the little plastic bag to store your apple slices for delicious goodness on the go :) - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 8:35AM
Ya... but that involves, like thought and stuff. My head hurts. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 8:46AM
It's a safety issue. When I worked Pooh's Corner and guests wanted their apples cut, I asked my lead if we did that. She said no bc to many CM's were injuring themselves and they did not want sharp knives around. Also there wasn't a clean area to do it with clean utensils. We would give the guests plastic knives so they could cut it themselves. Probably more injuries there, But that's why. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 8:46AM
And if you want to be able to cut your apples follow Gibbs rule #9. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 8:48AM
Well, there goes my theory. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Thanks splash! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 8:48AM
I would think they could use an apple corer for this purpose. My friend did get an apple sliced once, might have been marceline's, but that was a while ago. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 5:04PM
Wait, is rule number nine always carry a knife or is that don't date your coworkers? I always get his 51 rules confused (unless there are more!) - secretagentangel  4658.5 #28 5:27PM
