While you’re in full awe at Universal Studios by jumping from ride to ride or just walking through the varying splendid themed streets, it’s only natural that you’ll want to indulge in some of the appetizing food Universal has to offer. However, being a vegan can be a bit challenging when visiting the parks. Universal Orlando has a variety of restaurants on their property but only a few have some vegan options. Don’t worry though because as a vegan myself I’ve got you covered.  Here’s a list of places throughout Universal that you’ll definitely not want to miss.

Auntie Anne’s

As a child, I loved getting a nice warm pretzel at the theme parks. However, since turning vegan, I was curious if whether or not Universal Orlando sold any of these salty treats that I’d be able to enjoy. As a matter of fact, they do. Auntie Anne’s fresh pretzels are indeed vegan! Be sure to ask for a fresh pretzel without butter.
