Universal Studios In Hollywood - And Surronding Areas
0

8 posts in this topic

In a few weeks I will be traveling to Universal Studios in Hollywood and also SeaWorld in San Deigo. I was wondering if anyone had any food suggestions for these parks or these areas for restaurants. We traveled to Sea World in SanDiego about 6 months ago, and did not have a good experience at the park. Wanting to know if someone has eaten at either of these parks with good experiences lately. Also, any restaurants that are in the area would be nice to know. I've never been to Universal City or Hollywood area.

Thanks so much! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer gluten free travels!

We went a couple of years ago to univ Studios. They let us bring in food. I had a soft sided lunchbox cooler and left it in a locker by the front gate. We all wished we had brought food. It was so busy, lines for food were 1/2 hour. My boys ( not gluten-free) left the park for the city area to get food. Hub settled for a 15 minute wait for ice cream. They have lots of little carts to get water & soda & mInute Maid frozen lemonade. You should check that thier policies are still the same. I brought a loaf a bread from home and bought stuff like PB & jelly and cold cuts and cheese at the grocery.

Thanks so much! I will call and find out if we can bring our own food. I don't want my family to spend their time waiting for gluten free food at the restaurants there. Thanks for the tips:)

I don't think there is gluten-free food in the " restauraunts". Maybe bags of chips, sodas and candy. The frozen lemonade was good in the heat. There was another thread not to long ago about that area. I think there might be a place we could eat in the " city" area outside the gates.

here's the link to when I went. I think the recent univ Studios thread was for Florida not CA.

Thanks for the link! I know it is always safer to bring own food in, which I think we will do. My daugther loves disney since she can eat safely, but we wanted to try somewhere new this time. When we went to Seaworld last year, we didn't have much luck with the gluten free food either. I think we will bring in our gluten-free bagels, pnut butter, and fruit. Thanks

I contacted Universal, they do now offer gluten free dining options. I am still going to bring in a small amount of food to make it though the day for us, which they said we could, but I will also check out the dinning options. I will let you all know how it goes after the fact!

I didn't do any research before we went and my family ended up wandering into an italian place before i had noticed so i had a bit of a dodgy salad. it was quite gross and i didn't eat much of it. Later in the day I had some hot chips. I didn't check if they were gluten free but i was hungry.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
