Any suggestions on gluten-free options at either US or IOA? Heading there on Saturday w/ my y-dd who is 10 and GF. Probably do a counter service restaurant - will they have a menu that is gluten-free?

Confisco's has a full gluten free menu. Mythos has gluten free options. Counter service won't have a ton of options but check Thunder Falls Terrace menu because they do have some interesting things.

I read a TR where someone LOVED Richter's Veggie Burgers. It is in US.

When you go to Universals main page, look for the dining link. When you are in that page, scroll down and look for IOA. To get the menus, you have to click each individual restaurant, and scroll down till you see "click here for menu". It takes a while to go through all of them, but you should find exactly what you need.

phew.. what a great thread .. went thru most of it last weekend ..
but I have some questions now..

is the AAA discount used at most of these places .. onsite and in the parks
(TS and CS)/

also buying the refillable mugs at the parks.. are the refills station easy to get to or are they few around. wondering if its worth it to lug the mug around the parks.

Annual Pass Discount

I'm considering getting an annual pass for one of the tickets on our trip this summer. The additional discount on the hotel with the release of the summer APH rates will just about cover the extra cost of the pass vs. a four day park hopper ticket.

So, now I'm looking at how much benefit I'll get from it in dining. I understand that the pass will get me a 10% food discount at "most restaraunts". However, I've not been able to find a definitive list of what places to eat are covered by the discount and which are excluded.

Does such a list exist somewhere?

Thanks,

By most, I think there are only one or two that aren't. I've used it at all the park restaurants as well as most hotel restaurants. There are a few hotel restaurants, like Bice, that I've never eaten at so I can't help with that one.

There seems to be some new rule about using the AAA discount, so I'm not sure what the current situation is there. Seems like they are putting a minimum on it. For the refillable mugs...the ones that have free refills are only at select places with the Freestyle coke machines where the mugs with a low refill price are at any counter service restaurant.

Dinner Suggestion for IOA or US

We are regular WDW visitors but will be going in May for one day doing both parks. It is my Sister-in-Laws birthday what would be a good place to go for Dinner and can you make reservations ahead. We are a party of 6 with 5 adults and a 12 year old boy.
