6 Spots to Taste Famous Food and Drinks Throughout Universal Orlando Resort

June 9, 2020

You know that feeling when you’re watching a movie and you start to crave the food the characters are eating…but then you realize it doesn’t actually exist? Been there. (More often than I’d like to admit, to be honest.) 

Luckily, here at Universal Orlando Resort, those foods and drinks DO exist. From snacks and meals to drinks and desserts, I’ve got the breakdown of where you can try all the things you’ve been craving through the screen! (Spoiler alert: they taste just as good as they look.)

Springfield Dining – Universal Studios Florida


Springfield U.S.A.’s dining area brings to life all of the Simpsons eateries you’ve always wanted to try! Personally, my two favorites to visit are Lard Lad Donuts and Moe’s Tavern. A Big Pink donut is a must-have, with a size so large it’s perfect for sharing with a few friends. When it comes to quenching your thirst, I recommend the Flaming Moe. It bubbles and smokes — plus, it’s nonalcoholic so it can be enjoyed by everyone! Also, don’t miss out on the fully-themed Krusty Burger or Duff Brewery.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Universal Studios Florida & Islands of Adventure


One word: Butterbeer. Arguably the most iconic treat from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Butterbeer will make you feel like you’re actually a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You can enjoy this iconic flavor in several different types of treats and the only way to find out your favorite is to try them all…so get to tasting! (Personally, I’m a frozen Butterbeer kind of Ravenclaw.)

There are also plenty of other sweets from the Harry Potter film series to try, including Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, Peppermint Toads, Fizzing Whizzbees, and Chocolate Frogs (complete with a famous Witch or Wizard Card, of course).

Blondie’s – Islands of Adventure


If your appetite is as insatiable as Dagwood’s, you’ll love the iconic sandwich named after him! You can find the Dagwood at Blondie’s in Toon Lagoon — and trust me, it’s as mouthwatering in person as it looks in the comics. Made with fresh-baked onion and poppy seed bread, piled high with baked ham, turkey, roast beef, American and Swiss cheese, and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, and mustard, one bite is all it takes to see why Dagwood makes so many of these sandwiches. 

Green Eggs and Ham Cafe – Islands of Adventure


Am I the only one who’s been haunted by the question of how green eggs and ham actually taste ever since reading the book? Well, you can finally find out at Green Eggs and Ham Cafe…but with a tot-tastic twist! This Seuss Landing eatery offers green eggs and ham tots, along with a number of other delicious tot varieties. You can even try a can of Who Hash! Just look for the building shaped like a big green ham with a giant fork on top — it’s pretty hard to miss.

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. – Universal CityWalk


Any Forrest Gump fan will want to run to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. right when they enter Universal CityWalk. As Bubba himself puts it, “shrimp is the fruit of the sea,” and there’s plenty of “fruit” to be found here. I’m talking Cajun shrimp, coconut shrimp, fried shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp salad, shrimp scampi, shrimp gumbo…I could go on. True fans of the film can even test their knowledge of Forrest Gump factoids right at the table!

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville – Universal CityWalk


Jimmy Buffett’s island vibes are in full force at Margaritaville. Even better, the menu is filled with food and drinks referenced in his songs! Instead of singing “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” why not actually eat one? Or you could grab a Who’s To Blame Margarita to really get in the mood for some tropical relaxation. After all, it’s not “wasting away” if you’re actively consuming calories. That’s just science.

Okay, I don’t know about you, but my mouth is watering just looking at these photos. That means there’s only one thing to do now…book a trip to Universal Orlando Resort right now to satisfy the cravings! Did we leave any famous food or drinks out?

        I have a simple question. How does one qualify to become a blogger for UOR?

      If you want the BEST food, drinks and service, you have to go to Toothsome Chocolate Factory. My family and I have gone to universal studios over 20 times and we think this place is the BEST! I can’t believe it didn’t make it into this blog!

    This is a great blog post. Do I crave green eggs and ham? Maybe! I think an article on the good in Springfield would be helpful, too! There’s so much to try!

    “After all, it’s not “wasting away” if you’re actively consuming calories. That’s just science.” That quote made my day, thanks!
