It’s that time of year again as Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month returns on August 24th, 2018! Reservations are being taken for Magical Dining Month now, which runs through September 30th, 2018 – just over a month of wonderful dining options for $35.00 per guest for a 3 course prix fixe dinner menu (tax and gratuity are not included). There are 19 new restaurants taking part, including the recently opened Wine Bar George and Terralina at Disney Springs. There are also vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free menu options available at some restaurants – those are noted on the menus.

More than 100 restaurants participate, with one dollar being given to charity from each meal. The restaurants do change some each year, but two restaurants I personally recommend including Ravello at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando and Wine Bar George at Disney Springs.
“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 Visit Orlando President and CEO George Aguel. “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.”
Through Visit Orlando, one dollar from every meal served during Magical Dining Month is donated to children in need. This year, the program will help children affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities, though donations to Best Buddies and The Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida.
