So you’ve got your robes on and wand in hand, and you’re off to Hogwarts—at least the replica of it at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Fret not, all of you vegan wizards out there! The Wizarding World offers animal-friendly drinks, sweets, and other foods that would satisfy even Crabbe (R.I.P.) and Goyle’s seemingly insatiable appetite. Mount your Firebolt and pack your trunk, because you are on your way to the most magical place in the world—at least if you’re a no-maj or muggle. 😉

Note: We will be breaking down the vegan options for Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida and Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, but options will vary slightly at the Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Japan.

Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida

Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes

Weasleys Wizard Wheezes
Molly Hudelson 
Has Filch, the caretaker, given you a detention? Looking to make his day a little bit more … eventful? Then your first stop should be Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. Here, you will find an assortment of toys, gadgets, and jokes to make even Professor Binns’ History of Magic class seem fun! If you’re looking to celebrate the fall of the Dark Lord, be sure to snack away on an edible Dark Mark lollipop.

But don’t leave before you pick up some dairy-free Puking Pastilles—you may need an excuse to get out of that Transfiguration test you didn’t study for.

The Leaky Cauldron

Leaky Cauldron Food

Molly Hudelson 

Right across from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes is the world-famous Leaky Cauldron—the perfect spot to fuel up for a day full of shopping or fighting the Dark Arts. Here is what to get and how you can “veganize” it:

Food

  • Baked breakfast beans
  • Grilled tomato
  • Sautéed mushrooms
  • Breakfast potatoes
  • Garden salad with Italian dressing and croutons
  • Minted peas
  • Root vegetables
  • Vegetable platter without the peasant bread

Drinks

  • Pumpkin Juice
  • Tongue Tying Lemon Squash
  • Otter’s Fizzy Orange Juice
  • Peachtree Fizzing Tea
  • Gillywater

Note: The margarine used at the Leaky Cauldron is vegan!

The Butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is not vegan, so after a long day at the park, be sure to grab your own bottle of Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer—it’s vegan and can be found at many local stores! Or better yet, you can even make your own with our Vegan Butterybeer recipe.

Sugarplum’s Sweet Shop

Sugarplums

Now that you wish you could do magic to engorgio your stomach, stop by Sugarplum’s Sweet Shop on the other side of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. There, you can pick up some delicious vegan sweets, like Candy in a Can, which is full of delicious watermelon and strawberry candy; Tongueburners Tooth Splintering Strong Mints, which are little mints that pack a magically powerful punch; and others, like Pear Drops, Pineapple Cubes, Fizzy Wizzy, Sherbet Lemons, and more!

Eternelle’s Elixir of Refreshment

Elixir Station

After watching the talented Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees perform on the Diagon Alley stage, rehydrate with a delicious Gillywater infused with one of Eternelle’s elixirs! These little potions turn any boring bottle of Gillywater into a flavorful drink that may or may not induce feelings of euphoria and peace, protect you from fire, or cause uncontrollable babbling. All these flavor enhancers are vegan and make for a great drink to keep you going throughout the day.

Now hop aboard the Hogwarts Express, because your next stop is Hogsmeade (hope you got the Dursley’s to sign your permission slip!).

Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Honeydukes

Pick up a jar of fiery Cinnamon Balls or a jar of one Dumbledore’s favorite candies, Sherbet Lemons. Other tasty vegan candies include Pepper Imps, Jumping Snakes, Blood Pops, Sugar Quills, Candy Floss, Fruit Slices, and more!

Blood Pop

The Magic Neep

Looking for something healthy to eat for the wizard on the go? Stop by one of The Magic Neep carts, located in Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. You can stock up on some more Pumpkin Juice and Gillywater as well as some fresh fruit like oranges, grapes, fruit cups, and watermelon!
