If you hear the phrase “golden ticket,” you’re apt to think of Willy Wonka and the popular films to have come from the franchise. But did you know Grande Lakes Orlando takes the golden ticket concept one step further? This spring, the popular resort pays homage to the classic film and recent movie Wonka with a one-of-a-kind Golden Ticket Experience.

 

During Easter weekend, young guests at Grande Lakes Orlando are welcomed with a special chocolate bar upon arrival. Five of these, created by the resort’s in-house chocolatier, have a special Grande Golden Ticket wrapped within them. Lucky winners will receive a special Easter-themed gift.
