Every year, Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month gives us locals the chance to celebrate our awesome culinary scene. With more than 90 different restaurants participating, the foodie festivities are shaping up to be better than ever this year.
From Monday, August 29 through Sunday, October 2, 2016, diners can enjoy three-course prix-fixe feasts priced at just $33 (averaging a savings of 33% per meal).
HOW TO DO MAGICAL DINING MONTH
For us, it all starts with going online and clicking through all the menus, which feature every restaurant’s mouthwatering appetizers, entrees, and desserts being offered on the prix-fixe menus.
Then, we narrow down the choices to a handful of places we’re dying to try or can’t wait to return to. This year’s list of 90+ restaurants will make that process even harder, especially with newcomers STK, Morimoto Asia, Urbain 40, and Cask & Larder all joining the party in 2016.
With so many restaurants participating all across the city, including the Disney area, downtown, Winter Park, College Park, Baldwin Park and Lake Mary, it’s easier than ever for every Orlando local, regardless of where they live, to head out for at least one ‘Magical’ meal.

FOOD & PHILANTHROPY
Now in its 11th year, the Magical Dining Month program is responsible for donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to local charities. This year, $1 from each Magical Dining meal purchased will be donated to The Russell Home for Atypical Children, the first non-profit institution in the country to provide a home atmosphere with a family structure for special needs children and ‘child-like’ adults. Last year’s program contributed more than $160,000, the largest donation to date, to ELEVATE Orlando, which helped this local nonprofit to expand its mentorship programs into Jones High School, equipping thousands of urban youth in Central Florida with the skills to graduate with a plan for their future.
