Eating Gluten-Free At Sesame Place

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street, er Place? 

Sesame Place is a right of passage for kids in the Tri-State area. I went there as a kid and have since taken my daughter there twice. She absolutely loves it, as I did when I was little, but all I can think about now is how much pee is swirling around the pool water. Urine laced pee water aside, it's a fun place and if you shell out enough money, you can treat your tot to a meet and greet with the characters from the show during a private breakfast. It's worth the cash for not only the experience, but the added bonus of getting early access to the park, so you can avoid waiting with the huge mass of humanity outside the gates. 

Theme parks are not really known for their culinary prowess and even less so for being accommodating to those with food allergies, but I guess park managers woke up or decided there was money to be made in catering to food allergies because during my most recent visit to Sesame Place I actually found a couple of Rebbeca & Devyn's Gluten-Free To Go snack packs sold at the concessions. 

The protein pack had hummus and pretzels and the dessert pack had dried fruit and chocolate chip cookies. I didn't buy one, but I was happy to see a park taking a step in the right direction and offering these up. Now if only they would serve up some hot food that was gluten-free!
