Universal Studios Hollywood Vegetarian and Vegan Guide

Universal Studios Hollywood features numerous dining locations that cater to both vegetarians and vegans. This guide highlights the dining locations at the theme park that cater to those following a vegetarian or vegan diet. For each dining location listed, you can view information about the service type and the options available for both diets. If a meal requires adjustments to appease a certain diet, a note will be added beside the item. Otherwise, the meal requires no adjustments because it already caters to the diet. It should be noted that Universal Studios Hollywood frequently alters their menus. As a result, some options may become unavailable during your visit.

The menu items displayed in this guide are listed based on how we define the two diets. Some items may need to be altered, if possible, or eliminated to meet your exact diet.

Vegetarian: A person who does not consume meat-based products, such as poultry (this excludes eggs), red meats, or seafood (this excludes products such as seaweed).
Vegan: A person who does not consume any animal product.

We advise reviewing the information posted to the bottom of this page for tips and important statements. It should be noted that options marked with an asterisk are breakfast meals, which may not be available to order later in the day.

TIP: If you dislike the vegetarian and vegan options available in the park, you have the option to pack your own meals.

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 (22 cm wide x 15 cm high x 15 cm deep).
