TIP: If you dislike the vegetarian and/or vegan options available in the parks, we suggest packing your own meals. If you are informed by a security team member performing a bag check that your items are not prohibited in the park, alert the security team member that you or a member of your party has a food intolerance. According to Universal Studios Hollywood, you may not bring your food in a glass container, an open container, a hard-sided cooler, or a soft-sided cooler larger than 8.5″ wide x 6″ high x 6″ deep.

NOTE: This vegetarian and vegan guide only covers the main dining locations; this guide excludes snack and beverage locations, which may also offer vegetarian and vegan options. You can view the menu and/or ask a team member at such locations to check if an order is vegetarian or vegan. It should be noted that this guide may not include all vegetarian and vegan meals available at the destination; this guide provides a brief yet detailed look at the menus. Some vegetarian options may not necessarily be vegan. We suggest checking with a team member at the restaurants offering vegan meals to ensure that such items are vegan, as some items such as bread may contain dairy products or come in contact with animal products.
