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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
