Going to a convention February in San Diego. Was planning to go alone, but now will take the entire family. Anyone have any input on places to go or not go in regards to food or other with pa daughter? May drive to Anaheim to Disneyland/world? also.

We were in the San Diego area a couple years ago. My kids had a lot of fun at LegoLand - my son was a real legomaniac. Both of my kids still talk about the park. I can't remember specifics about the food there, but my PA son was able to eat at the park, at that time anyway. We loved the San Diego area; we stayed in Laguna Niguel (not sure of the spelling) - the coast is breathtaking. I'm sure the California posters can tell you much more. You're lucky to go!

You have to check out a Claim Jumper while out there...we were out in San Diego area about two years ago. The manager at the CJ we went to North of San Diego was extremely attentive. Told us what to stay away from, and the food was great...very "home made".

Is Claim Jumper a restaurant? what kind of food do they have there? thanks for the info.

We just returned from 9 days in Anaheim and San Diego. Our PA son had absolutely no problems; the trip was great! In San Diego, we enjoyed Sea World more than the zoo or Legoland. There is so much to see at Sea World, and after 4 days at Disney and 1 at Universal, it was a nice break from all the theme park atmosphere. Our boys (5 and 3) just fell in love with the dolphins, killer whales, penguins, sea lions and everything else; in fact, this stop created a spark of interest in penguins for my 5yo, and now we are doing a unit on penguins in our homeschool studies. I highly recommend this beautiful, well-kept attraction. As for food safety, we did not eat at the park, so I can't help you there. Have fun!

thanks mammabass, we were just ordering tickets for the zoo, seaworld, and probably legoland. my wife wants to go to universal though so its a toss up between that and legoland. i'm thinking legoland cause its closer to sandiego. Any restaurant suggestions (perhaps chains that may also be in s.d. as well as anaheim)?

We just got back and, without a hitch i might add (re: pa). Ate at restaurants high and low, at theme parks, and at airport, but no airline food. United was good except for first leg where they served cashews & pretzels (they still have an obsession with nuts). The parks had p&b sandwiches, but the chicken fingers were safe. Universal was our favourite (also went to legoland, zoo, seaworld).

We stayed at Hotel Del Coronado and the Chef was outstanding in arranging safe dinners for our DS who is TNA, dairy and egg. They were quite accommodating. We are going to LegoLand tomorrow and I thought we would just bring in food from outside but now reading these posts, we may try to contact someone tomorrow while there but I don't feel comfortable with last minute requests. Oh well. I will email the seaworld folks and see what happens.

This summer at Sea world - which was my 4 year olds favorite place out of the whole vacation. We ate at the buffet- when you eat with shamu. We asked a lot of questions and they (serveres, an reservation people)seemed very aware. We had no problems.

When we went last feb. we had no problems. We went to Legoland, Seaworld, Zoo, and Universal Studios. All were ok to eat at. Some had PB&J sandwiches, but after we asked it was ok. Most restaurants seemed to be ok, just be aware and ask.
