Universal Studios is (not surprisingly) a mistake for vegans.

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
All right, so a few weeks ago, I went to California to visit my grandmother. Being that I have no car insurance and can barely drive as it is, I was pretty much at the whims of family members. One day, my husband, my brother, and I went to Universal Studios. Here's what happened. (Reposted from veganporn.com. because I'm sort of lazy. Sorry!)



Quote:
My husband and I went to Universal Studios Hollywood over the weekend. (We were visiting family and got stuck in L.A. for a day.) Though we did not expect to find wonderful vegan/vegetarian foods there, we remained somewhat optimistic. After all, you're banned from carrying your own food into the park.



However, there was almost nothing for us to eat. We spent an hour and a half searching what is a relatively small park, traveling from restaurant to restaurant in search of something other than a small, dry, prepackaged salad, which consisted of some limp looking iceberg lettuce with two tomato slices, shredded carrot, and (sometimes) a thimble-full of grated cheese. Everywhere, we were greeted by chili fries, drumsticks, hamburgers, meat-based burritos, fried chicken, and ham sandwiches. Finally, we asked a crew member for help. He certainly tried, and even went so far to give us his special employees only chart, which showed where "vegetarian meals" could be found. We set off again.



First stop was the Jurassic Cafe, which had the small, prepackaged "salads" I mentioned before. One kind. The Flintstone's Drive-in had pretzels and small bags of popcorn. Pretzels and popcorn are not meals any more than the cups of lettuce are, and besides, I have a wheat allergy and couldn't stomach the former anyway. The Hollywood Cafe and Frank 'N' Stein's had more small, prepackaged cups of lettuce. Two kinds, but one was chicken caesar. Frank 'N'Stein's also had fruit cups. The Cantina offered to remove the meat and cheese from their burritos, leaving us with beans and rice. Fun. The Cybergrill were downright baffled as to why they were listed as having vegetarian meals since they had only the standard packaged salad. They were, however, able to point us in the direction of Mel's Diner. This confused us, since we'd checked it earlier and found only burgers, fries, fried chicken, and milkshakes. Oh, and fruit cups. We were told that, no, they actually had veggie burgers.



At Mel's Diner, we skeptically scanned the menu. No veggie burgers were listed, but it turned out they were available upon request. We ordered them and then waited 15 minutes at the register while they were cooked.



In all honesty, these were pretty decent burgers. I'm pretty sure they had both soy and wheat in them--both allergens--but at that point I was desperate enough to ignore the rashes that would follow a few hours later. And there is no way these burgers were worth the hour and a half of searching. Each of the restaurants mentioned above had loads of similar foods--burgers, chicken, roast beef, french fries. The fact that they had nothing to offer vegetarians besides pretzels, popcorn, and small salads, and worse, that they attempted to pass these off as "meals". Universal Studios seems to be under the impression that vegetarian food consists entirely of a) lettuce and b) "regular" food with the meat removed. I just wrote them an angry (but polite) letter--no wonder people think that vegetarians just eat rabbit food. That's all that some places want to serve us. Oh, and the fact that they didn't bother to put the veggie burgers on the menu didn't help either. I hate to be dramatic, but since when was vegetarianism a dirty secret? Ugh.



And to give you an idea of how helpful the list of "vegetarian meals" was, by the way, it showed that the 9 of the 15 listed options had them. Basically, every restaurant in the park. This is including the Cantina, featuring "El Pollo Loco", and the Super BBQ. Which ones didn't make the cut? A cookie store, two ice cream shops, a Cinnabon, and a pub. No, seriously. EVERYTHING else was listed as having vegetarian meals, and nothing had anything besides that which I've mentioned here.



What a craphole. It's not like I would be going to Universal Studios on my own time, but since I was dragged there I should think I wouldn't have to starve the entire day.



Oh, and I forgot to mention that the place was full of incredibly obese people who probably eat something akin to the park's greasy burgers and fried chicken on a daily basis. The ironic part of the whole thing is the fact that there were 25 cent scales scattered everywhere. Very weird. Sort of a reminder that "sure, you're dangerously overweight--have another platter of cheese-drenched chili fries."



I'd like to add that I'm naturally a little full-figured myself and I'm not just callously insulting anybody who's overweight. It was very depressing, though, seeing all these grotesquely unhealthy people--I'm talking "having trouble walking" unhealthy--continuing to shovel greasy, calorie-laden food into their mouths. The worst part of it all was the fact that Universal Studios didn't offer anything better. Very sad.



I haven't received a response to the letter I wrote yet.

I'm sorry, but I think this sort of problem should have been foreseen and I would have personally brought food with me and/or gotten a burrito with beans, salsa, maybe some vegetables, et cetera at the Mexican place. I don't know if I would have gotten the rice, considering it might have some non-vegan item in it. I would have asked to make sure the beans and tortillas don't have lard and then dug in. Most places don't use lard, and they usually even can steam up some vegetables for you if you ask.



Who knows if the veggie burger was even vegan?

I would have brought food if they allowed it. As I mentioned at the beginning of my rant, you're forbidden from taking your own food into the park. We did carry in a bag with water and suntan lotion, and had it searched when we entered.



Regarding the burrito, I didn't want to pay 5.50 for a wrap filled with beans, salsa, and lettuce. There were no vegetables available. Most of the cost was clearly devoted to the main ingredients of the burritos--i.e., cheese, meat, sour cream, and guacamole. In addition, the place was an absolute madhouse and it would have been impossible to ask for either the origin of the lard or a price reduction in regards to the burrito. I mean back-to-back ten minute lines just to get up to the front to talk to an employee who likely knew nothing about the manner in which the food was prepared. (It clearly wasn't fresh; I assume they trucked it in frozen from somewhere.)



As far as asking for steamed vegetables, this wasn't the sort of place to ask for special requests. All the "restaurants" were set up like cafeterias, meaning that you walked through a line picking up the pre-made meals you wanted without speaking to the workers. (We had trouble getting the attention of the person who eventually made us a veggie burger.) Just like you can't request steamed vegetables at McDonald's, you can't request steamed vegetables at Universal Studios. Similarly, you can't talk to McDonald's about price reduction--the employees just can't do that. The employees at Universal Studios had the same degree of power insofar as policy/price change, etc.

Hmm...I guess the veggie burrito is out of question then.



Well, I guess maybe somebody could put energy/snack/meal bars in their pockets or purse and snack on those? Not that those things hold you over long, but at least you can enjoy the day more so than your experience, DTW.

Actually, we did sneak in a couple of cereal bars, but they weren't enough to tide us over.



I would have loved a veggie burrito, believe me. (I get great ones at places like Qdoba and Chipotle!) But it's like vegetables were some the pariah of foodstuffs. All I could find was that iceberg lettuce I mentioned.



I should mention that my aunt bought us tickets without asking us, and we were sort of obligated to go. (Well-intentioned of her, of course!) Otherwise I probably would have just avoided the place.

I was in Orlando a few years ago, before I became vegan, and it definitely had more choices. I remember there being real restaurants there--the sort of place one could make special requests.

i propose we open our own all vegan theme park. it should be called ~*VEGANMANIA*~



if dolly parton can do it, we can, too.



sorry about your rotten experience, DuckThatWasn't. i wonder if you had explained to the park people at the gate about your food allergies they would have let you in with your own stuff. i recently got a bunch of veggie dogs and vegan buns into an indoor play center for my vegan kids who were attending a birthday party there. they tried to give me grief but i looked mean enough that i guess they backed down. for gosh sakes, as if they aren't going to get a bunch of money out of you for simply patronizing the park to begin with. i hate those kinds of policies.

Ah, VeganMania! I'm all for that! Hm, but what do we have there?



In retrospect, you're right--I really should have brought something and just contested the guy at the entrance. If I'd put up enough of a fuss, I might have been able to get past them. I guess I was just hoping it wouldn't come to that. Ah well, I guess I've learned a lesson.



I'll have to practice my "looking mean" skills, though.

post #10 of 51
Ugh. That's terrible! It's like they only cater to the unhealthy eater. Except for the salad. Atleast they could make actual entree salad loaded with stuff. Not some small thing they call a salad. It's a shame that some places think everyone wants meat or dairy in everything they eat! Like it's a unhealthy stuff your face park. Now I know not to ever go there, I guess! If they don't respect vegetarians enough to offer decent food for us to eat, I'm not giving them my money or the privilage of my company ( he he)!

That sounds pretty standard for an amusement/theme park. I don't think people usually go to amusement parks for the food. In fact I hardly eat at all when I go to an amusement park because you're so busy going on rides and watching shows that you really don't have time or desire for anything other than some popcorn or maybe french fries. And you can always leave the park and go out to eat if you're really that hungry. It's been ages since I've been to Universal Studies but I assume it's like all the other parks where you can get your hand stamped to come back in and you can get your parking pass verified so you don't have to repay to park. When you go to the fair you don't expect to find healthy food, you go there for the junk food and elephant ears and cotton candy.

We couldn't go on rides for seven hours without eating. I didn't go for the food, but I do need to eat, and being that they wouldn't allow me to bring anything in, they should have provided something. I have stomach problems in addition to everything else I mentioned and would have gotten sick if I attempted to make a meal of candy and junk food. All I was asking for was a nice veggie burrito or a salad consisting of something other than lettuce and a shredded carrot. There's frankly no reason that they couldn't have offered these things inside the park where it would have been convenient.



Incidentally, I couldn't go out to eat because I had no car. You're right, though--they do stamp your hand and allow you back in, and there was an area with shops and a couple of restaurants right outside the gates. Eventually we wandered out onto this "Universal Citywalk" or whatever it's called, where they had slightly more food. I ended up getting a salad (surprise!) which was much nicer than that which they'd provided inside the park. Ideally, we would have known that they stamp your hand upon exiting, since that would have allowed us to get out onto the Citywalk. All the same, trying to find food there was an awful experience.



Like I've said, I usually avoid places like this for these very reasons.
post #13 of 51
I work at Universal Studios, I'm vegan, and I've been complaining about if for months. We're too much of a minority to adequately addressed. As soon as we become a large enough market to provide fresh food to (without worrying that it's spoiled), then we'll have more vegan options. Believe me, working there is very difficult as a vegan. I tend to bring lots of vegan snack bars and fruit, and occasionally I can slip out to CityWalk, where PitFire Grill can make their pizzas vegan, and Jamba Juice carries two vegan smoothies and can adapt nearly any other smoothie by subbing sherbet with sorbet, etc.



If you ask for a manager at the front of the park, or go to the Information Booth, where most of the guides know me as the one who's vegan, you can probably get assistance with special diets. The policy is designed for a number of reasons, but it's not to be unreasonable to guests. Another solution is to keep your food in lockers on CityWalk, enjoy the park, exit the gates with a handstamp, eat out on CityWalk, and return to the park after lunch. Not a bad idea to get away from the park for half an hour or so, really.



BTW, I rode Revenge of the Mummy yesterday and today. Enh. Not blown away. It's almost as if it's too smooth. For those of you in the area that want to check it out, remember it's not open until Friday. And expect really long lines and frequent breakdowns for small technical glitches that are still be worked out. Par for the course, really.

BTW, the vegetarian meals at Jurassic Cove include Panda Express veggies and cheese pan pizzas from Pizza Hut. [sarcasm]I'm just so glad at the increased branding in our park[/sarcasm]. We just got two new Ben and Jerry's windows, too, though I fail to see how they're different from the ice cream stands that were there, before. At any rate, none of this helps us vegans, but there are all considered "vegetarian," for our ovo-lacto brothers and sisters.



I'm not sure about Louie's (i.e., whether they use butter in their pasta), but they do have pizzas you can order without cheese, and pasta with meatless sauce, so you can go very close to vegan there, if not actually vegan. I will try to remember to check into this next time I'm in the park, which may be a while, since I may be training for a new supervisory position I'm adding to my regular duties next week.



BTW, the mexican place is an El Pollo Loco-branded restaurant, and I think it's fairly safe to assume their food is prepared in line with whatever El Pollo Loco generally claims to do at their website, or perhaps when inquiring at any of their other locations.



I'm very glad you wrote a letter. The more guests that complain about the lack of vegan options, the more I can hope to one day eat a vegan meal on my lunch break while my VIP guests are eating half a dead chicken and some fries. *shudders*



I wouldn't expect a reply back, but I'm fairly certain that all letters are read, and guest service is taken very, very seriously.

Wow, an actual employee! It must be tough there. I wonder if you're the nice guy who helped us out. Hm. You ever man the Animal Planet show?
post #16 of 51
I would never work the Animal Planet show. I actually adopted a cat from there last week, but my wife didn't like him, so I had to bring him back this morning. It was devastating enough having to bring the cute little bugger back, but I was in so early that I had to walk around to find an employee, so I got to see all the little creatures in their cages where they're kept except when they're being used in the show.



I work with the studio tour as a guide. I spend a portion of my week doing regular tram tours, but I also do VIP tours that take me into the theme park a couple of times a week, which will go up as summer increases demand for VIP tours. I'm often stuck in the Lower Lot area with my guests, who can eat whatever is on the menu at Jurassic Cove and now at the new Panda Express restaurant. I was literally stuck with no food options yesterday except a vegan food bar and the food we sell down there, which is only ovo-lacto friendly, and I went very hungry. I have yet to find the time to complain about this as an employee, and unfortunately I have complained similarly in the past, and the problem tends to be a lack of demand, which is anethema to a business, seeing as how food that goes bad is waste, and waste affects profit.

They won't really miss you, is the thing. By far, the vast majority demands the food offered in the park. It is a business, after all, catering to the wants of its primary customers. The fact that it has numerous ovo-lacto options is evidence enough that it is attentive to vegetarian needs. That employee-only card mentioned in the first post even has a list of restaurants where you can find kosher meals.



I've been arguing for ages that vegans need to learn to become better consumers and create a more unified, identiable market so that our needs are better addressed. Too many of us simply hide out and end up being ignored.

Well, I didn't think you'd work in the Animal Planet show, but there was a guy standing outside directing people around and explaining the showtimes. In addition, I wasn't totally sure of how much choice you got in regards to your jobs.



I'm so sorry to hear about the kitten. We did go and see the Animal Planet show, and I was seriously worried for the welfare of the animals throughout. I'm unfortunately not surprised that they spend their time in cramped cages. Did they at least look healthy enough?



It's a shame that I didn't know about you before I wrote the letter! If I need to send it again, would you like me to mention something about a certain anonymous employee who starves half the time he's in the park?

I pretty much agree with this. Unfortunately I can't imagine you having a much different experience at any other theme park. Hopefully your letter will have a positive effect!

That was actually a retired 5 year-old cat that never really worked out for the show. Didn't like crowds. Ha! Take that. Shouldn't be turning animals into curiosities for the masses in the first place. They do seem physically healthy enough visually, but I'm no vet. Most of them seemed starved for social interaction. The poor monkeys broke my heart when they called out to me. Of course, I was pretty vulnerable just from having to leave the cat with them after falling for it pretty hard. He was such a big, hairy, drooling sweetie of an orange tabby.



I have much choice in my job, as do most people in the park. I responded to an ad for tour guides in Daily Variety and discovered just how competitive the job was, which only made me more interested in it, of course. VIP was simply the next level for me after I'd done enough tram tours and expressed an interest. My lead status was sorta the same deal. I interviewed for management, but that was somewhat premature. More like a shot across the bow to let them know I was interested, and it was very effective, since all managers involved in the interviews were very impressed and are expecting good things from me in the future. Maybe I'll have more say in what goes into our restaurants in the park some day. It's actually a pretty damn great company to work for, which was one of the most shocking discoveries of all once I started working for someone besides myself again.



I'd prefer you don't reference me anonymously or otherwise in your letter, but I can't see how it would hurt to reference employees in general. Our lower grill is horrendously unhealthy. The upper grill is marginally better, but I'm often stuck in the Lower Lot, due to the way my VIP tours are best structured, depending on what time my trolley is assigned for the VIP backlot tour.



You might want to request as compensation for your troubles a VIP tour for two with a guide who understands your needs as a vegan and can assist you more personally during your visit (they're worth $135 each, so don't expect it, but I'm trying to creatively help). If that doesn't raise a flag in my fellow department members immediately, assuming that is offered to you as a guest retention tactic and you call and set something up, I would be shocked. They would very likely assign you to a tour with me as your guide. You just need to make sure they follow through with that on the form, since the reservations go through multiple hands, and the initial reservation-taker won't necessarily be doing the scheduling of guides. But if it did work out, I could then run back to the grill and buy you apples, bananas, and that sort of thing when we go on break. That's the sort of care my VIPs can always expect. BTW, the employee grill's veggie burger is halfway decent, but it's Gardenburger, and I'm fairly positive it's not vegan. Also pretty sure it's the same one at Mel's. The only reason I can even fathom for it to be hidden as a menu item is that Mel's probably never carried a veggie burger. They're such a new concept that it probably doesn't fit the retro image. Still, screw that. Put it on the menu. I will also try to remember that. In fact, the more actable items you can e-mail me to bring up, the better chance I'll have at getting something done about it, or at least getting legit responses from top people at the park. Feel free to e-mail me about any of this from my profile. I only visit VB once a day, if I have the time.

They searched your bag for food? Seriously? That is dreadful. Next time claim serious allergies combined with diabetes, so you can only eat your own food and must eat it often.

I doubt they're searching it for food. They search bags at Cedar Point too, but they're searching for weapons. However when they saw we had water bottles, they made us dump out all the water before we could come in!

That's good. Some places make you pay for the bottled water, and charge you heaps.

seems that universal studios is about as veggie-friendly as our local theme park. I didn't find not one vegetarian item that was edible. (there was one salad, that I got from the restaraunt that I had to send back twice because they kept putting cheese and chopped eggs on it)
post #28 of 51
haven't been to universal studios, but my roommate a couple of years ago made me go to universal citywalk. finding food was pretty hard. i ended up having really boring pasta (all it had on it was oil and tomato chunks, for something like $12) made after talking to the chef at the wolfgang puck cafe.
post #29 of 51
Yeah, that's the other thing..... the prices at amusement parks! That should be reason enough to make you not want to eat there, vegan or not. :P
