The Leaky Cauldron Review (Breakfast)

After my initial visit to Diagon Alley and success with finding gluten-free and dairy-free options at the Leaky Cauldron for lunch, I knew I had to go back once I discovered that the signature restaurant serves up breakfast- including gluten-free pancakes. As it happens, gluten-free pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods. However, I didn’t get my hopes up right away as I knew that dairy could easily spoil the […]

Bumblebee Man's Tacos Review and Allergen Menu (Universal Studios: Springfield, USA)

Figuring that I’ve done pretty comprehensive coverage of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, I decided to venture elsewhere in the park for lunch on my third visit. Passing several times through the Simpsons-themed land when going to and from Diagon Alley, a bright black-and-yellow food truck caught my eye and sparked my curiosity. After all, it’s hard not to miss the […]

The Hopping Pot Review and Allergen Information

Part of the whole fun of Diagon alley is that the open marketplace is prime for people watching. Witches and wizards of all ages cast spells with their interactive wands and impressive costuming efforts blur the line between employees, wizards, and muggles in disguise.  After a busy morning of shopping, I wanted to take a quick rest stop at the Hopping Pot, an outdoor bar that features an array of […]

Allergen Information for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley's Specialty Beverages

Universal Orlando, in developing the richly layered and immersive Wizarding World of Harry Potter, won worldwide fame as they became the one and only destination (in the muggle world) where anyone and everyone can get butterbeer: the non-alcoholic butterscotch beverage made famous by J.K. Rowling in the Harry Potter book series.  As fans flock to the park in search of this magical drink, they often overlook other offerings found exclusively at Diagon […]

The Leaky Cauldron Review (Lunch/Dinner)

When it (magically) appeared at our table, the runner announced my meal as the “allergy” chicken sandwich. I liked that they did this as double confirmation that my meal was prepared separately. I initially thought I had received salmon on my sandwich due to the dining room’s diminished lighting, but realized that the chicken was just thinly sliced and grilled. The bun appeared to be an Udi’s bun, but I cannot say […]
