Harry Potter Wizarding World In Orlando - Is Anything Gluten-Free? Butterbeer?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi!

With the new Wizarding World come new restaurants, new food items at the "wizarding" stores, and brand new "wizarding" treats like butterbeer. Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck at all finding out if any of that stuff is gluten-free. If some of you know, please share the info? :)

Good Question! Butter Beer is non-alcoholic which is a bonus and it comes 2 ways frozen and non. I know that pumpkin juice tastes good. (I haven't yet drank a whole one only sips) The ingredients are: water, apple juice concentrate, pumpkin puree, apricot puree, sugar, natural and artificial flavors, citric acid, acesulfame potassium, sodium benzoate.

Have you sent an them an email. All theme parks have an email "contact" us on their websites. They are typically very good about getting back to individuals in a timely fashion regarding their questions.

Keep us posted if you hear anything.

I just heard Butter Beer is gluten-free, however if you are lactose intolerant the "foam" on top has lactose in it.

Butterbeer is gluten free by ingredient, but cross-contamination is very possible. The topping is made where flour is used "extremely heavily" according to on duty manager. After serving my son who has celiac one without topping, which was great, we were then told this was a mistake and that due to contract obligations it could not be served without the topping. When asked if we could have topping on the side we were also told no. We spoke to everyone in the park we could including the food services manager and were told the same thing. Its a shame a kid with such a limited diet already should be denied this over something so petty. This most certainly wont be the last they here of it though.

I just got home from Universal ! I drank a few butterbeers, didn't know if they were gluten free or not, but i didnt get sick so im happy!

here are some restaurants located at universal that have gluten free options!

Hard Rock Cafe- don't have a gluten free menu but the managers know what to serve. They have corn tortilas for fajita's, and you have to ask them to cook the fajita mixture in a different skillet, but they know what to do if you tell them you have celiac they are very good there.

Margaritaville- Have a full gluten free menu, and they also have a dedicated fryer to cook french fries in. I had the chicken sandwich with fries it was absolutely amazing! I wasn't expecting the bun to be very good but to my surprise it was delicious i want to go back there right now!

Mytho's restaurant- have a gluten free menu, pad thai it was really good, they also have a gluten free brownie dessert i didn't get to try because i was too full!
