This New Florida Attraction Is About To Make All Of Your Childhood Dreams Come True

It’s time to awaken your inner Augustus Gloop, because Universal Orlando’s CityWalk is opening a new restaurant that looks a heck of a lot like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

As a lifelong chocoholic and Willy Wonka fan, I feel like I’ve found a Golden Ticket. You will too, when you see some of the eye-popping desserts that will be on the menu.

The Toothsome Chocolate Factory and Savory Feast Emporium will be opening later this year, and guests will not have to purchase a ticket to Universal in order to try it out.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Although it’s not technically affiliated with the children’s book or the films, it’s pretty clear the restaurant drew a lot of inspiration from the beloved classics. Sadly, this means no psychedelic boat rides down a chocolate river, Oompa-Loompas, or Fizzy Lifting Drinks. To be honest, an entire room where everything was edible would be a health code nightmare, anyway.

According to the official blog for Universal Orlando, “The Toothsome Chocolate Factory will transport you into a 19th century-inspired Steampunk chocolate factory. You’ll indulge your appetite amidst towering smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion.”

For those who aren’t familiar with the term, Steampunk is basically a blend of Victorian or Wild West fashion and science fiction.

Anyway, the restaurant will also offer the typical steak, seafood, burgers, sandwiches, salads and pastas. That’s nice and all, but I’m pretty sure everyone will be saving room for dessert. Check out a few of these bad boys:

I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but yes, that is a Key lime milkshake topped with a piece of Key lime pie. We can’t wait to try out this new Florida attraction. How about you?
