As the tagline “Deliciously Different. Delightfully fun.” suggests, the World of Chocolate Museum & Café is quite honestly one of the most wonderful things to do in Orlando. You don’t even have to be a chocoholic to enjoy a trip to this Orlando sweet spot. The offerings are as varied as the chocolate they provide, so there is something for everyone to enjoy—from chocolate-making workshops and exhibits to interactive displays and the delicious World of Chocolate Café.
At the start of each hour, an experienced guide will lead you on a journey through the geographical maze of chocolate-y goodness, beginning in the rainforest home of the cacao plant, through the royal courts of Europe, and all the way to the international treat we’ve come to know and love today.
While exploring the fascinating evolution of chocolate, you’ll also discover an array of intricately carved chocolate sculptures—including a 5-foot Eiffel Tower, the Great Wall of China and many other famous landmarks. Each of the chocolate masterpieces was done by Austrian artists and transported via ship to the Museum.
Round out your tour with free tastings of many of the world’s gourmet chocolates.
With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, free Wi-Fi, and more than 200 delicious chocolate treats to choose from, visiting The World of Chocolate Museum is one of the things to do in Orlando that the entire family can enjoy.
Grab your next slice of heaven from the beautiful display case full of wonderful confections, or choose from a variety of savory food items; then wash it all down with your choice of wine, soda, tea, coffee, or of course—hot chocolate! There are daily specials available, so be sure to ask your barista for the low down.
