Luxury Orlando Resort Recreates an Iconic Childhood Fantasy Experience for Young Guests

ORLANDO, FL – March 16, 2018 — For the second year in a row, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, will be recreating the iconic childhood fantasy experience of finding a golden ticket in a candy bar during the Easter Weekend festivities taking place March 29 to April 1, 2018 at the Orlando luxury resort.

Executive Pastry Chef Stephane Chéramy and his Pastry Team will be channeling the memorable childhood movie experience about a mystical candy maker and coveted golden tickets for a truly unforgettable holiday weekend for young children at this family resort.  

Chef Chéramy has handcrafted an exclusive chocolate bar called the “Golden Grande Bar”. The first 150 children ages 3 to 10 arriving with their family at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes over Easter Weekend will be given 1 of the 150 confections (while supplies last). Five of the bars will have the treasured “Golden Ticket,” and the recipients will be recognized on the Da Vinci Lawn on Easter Sunday at 2:30 p.m. The five lucky young guests with the golden tickets will receive a special Easter-themed amenity from the Easter Bunny plus a shipment of chocolate to their home equivalent in the amount of their body weight!

The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes will also be hosting an incredible Easter Brunch on Sunday, April 1 from 12 to 3 p.m. for local Orlando residents and hotel guests alike.
