It’s that delicious time of the year again where we Central Floridians celebrate something everyone in the world loves to do: Eat! Magical Dining Month begins August 23 and runs through September 30, 2019. This event is Orlando’s homage to our wonderful “cuisine scene” and it’s shaping up to be another tasty season of delectable delights!
What is Magical Dining Month?
For the 14th year in a row, Magical Dining Month (MDM) is a celebration of our area’s culinary culture. This is your chance to enjoy three-course, prix-fixe dinners at more than 120 of Orlando’s best restaurants for only $35 per person.
This event is sponsored by Visit Orlando, the official tourism association for O-town, and $1 from each meal served will benefit one or more deserving local charities. And that is sweeter than even the richest dessert. So this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy discovering new and old favorite dishes and cuisines at fantastic prices while supporting an important cause.
Reservations are suggested, but walk-ins are usually ok...just don’t forget to request the special Visit Orlando's Magical Dining menu upon arrival at the restaurant. As with any dining event, the price does not include tax or gratuity and hopefully you’ll find that Orlando prides itself not only on a wonderful variety of cuisines but good service as well.
What You Get
Exactly what do you get with a fixed menu during Magical Dining Month? A fabulous 3-course meal. A tasty small dish to whet your appetite, a hearty and satisfying main course and, the pièce de résistance, a mouthwatering dessert that perfectly rounds out this truly indulgent dining experience.
Ok, maybe not innumerable, but it feels that way when you have more than 120 restaurants offering this event. I mean how many dinners can you possibly enjoy in the span of 39 days? 39, in case you were wondering. So, let’s break it down into categories so you can pick and choose whatever your family is craving. Magical Dining Month covers, of course, good old American as well as: Japanese and sushi, Italian and pizza, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Southern, steak, seafood, Latin American, Asian and Pacific Rim, Mediterannean and more. I, personally, am not that picky and would devour each and every one of these tantalizing cuisines. And the beauty of all this choice is the fact that MDM takes place all around the Orlando area. If you happen to have spent the day in our beautiful downtown or Winter Park area, there are dozens of venues participating. Sandlake Road, which is not too far from your luxury vacation villa, is known as “Restaurant Row” and certainly has plenty of options to choose from. If you care to stay near your villa, you are in luck because International Drive, Disney area, Disney Springs and the Lake Buena Vista area all have a plethora of themed, casual and fine dining establishments just waiting to delight your entire family.
