Known for its gigantic theme parks, Orlando is home to one of the most spectacular steampunk attractions, the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen. It's a restaurant and "Dessert Foundry" where costumed performers (including a robot) wander the floor and interact with guests. It's part of the Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort, where you can also visit "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter."

Not to be outdone, Disney World now hosts The Edison (opened in January 2018), an eatery themed as "Industrial Gothic," which sounds like a synonym for "steampunk." It's family-friendly until 10 p.m., and then transforms into a nightspot for adults.

Aside from the tourist attractions, Orlando also appears to have an active steampunk community. The Facebook group of the Central Florida Steampunk Association boasts 2400 members.

The listings below include locations in the Orlando area and nearby Daytona Beach. Check out the "Steamiest Places" section for attractions likely to be of greatest interest to steampunks.
