Foodies can start making reservations for Orlando’s most popular restaurants during Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month, making its return Aug. 24 – Sept. 30.
This year’s event brings several new “firsts,” including:
- Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free menu options
- 19 new participating restaurants, featuring diverse cuisines
The Magical Dining Month was created by Visit Orlando to show off the variety of upscale and diverse dining throughout the city, while also helping children in need. More than 100 restaurants across Orlando take part, with each one offering a three-course, prix fixe dinner menu for $35 per person. One dollar from every meal served is donated to a local charity.
This year, the program will help children affected by developmental and intellectual disabilities through donations to Best Buddies and The Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida.
“Our Magical Dining program has become so popular that we now have visitors and residents wanting to make reservations well over a month in advance, just to ensure they get their top choices,” said George Aguel, president and CEO of Visit Orlando. “We are delighted to see that people are eager for the program to kick off. That’s good news as it helps spread the word about Orlando’s incredible dining options, and also gives back to children in our local community.”
The website for Magical Dining Month has been recently updated and includes the full list of participating restaurants, menus, and – for the first time ever – designated options for vegans, vegetarians, and those on gluten-free diets.
Venues participating in the event spread across Orlando, from Disney Springs to Restaurant Row near the convention center, along with neighborhood districts in downtown Orlando, Winter Park and more.
