There are two things we love most about this time of year: back-to-school and the return of Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month. After a long summer, it’s time to get date night back on track and this annual homage to Orlando’s amazing dining scene is just the way to do it.
On now through Sunday, September 30, you can head to one of 100+ local restaurants offering three-course, prix fixe meals for just $35 per person. From Championsgate to Sanford and all of the dining districts in between, these participating restaurants offer a diverse array of cuisines, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Besides dozens of fan favorites returning year after year, Magical Dining Month welcomes 19 newcomers this year. That list includes a few new Disney Springs additions and many of downtown Orlando’s best restaurants:
- Amura Sushi
- Bongos Cuban Cafe
- Café Tu Tu Tango
- Coopers Hawk-Waterford
- Mai Hana Pan Asian
- Market to Table
- Maria & Enzo’s
- Reyes Mezcaleria
- Seito Sushi Baldwin Park
- Texas de Brazil
- The Strand
- The Tap Room at Dubsdread
- Wine Bar George
- Zeta Asia
Sponsored by American Express, Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month is also a fabulous fundraiser, with one dollar from every meal served donated to a local charity. 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.
Best Buddies creates opportunities for inclusion and one-to-one friendships for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Diners participating in Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month will help expand the program, which is most often found in high schools and middle schools.
The Down Syndrome Association offers support for those with Down syndrome and their families. Diners participating in Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month will help create funds for families in crisis, medical needs not covered by insurance, and therapy scholarship programs.
Friday, August 24 through Sunday, September 3, 2018.
More than 100 restaurants across the destination participate, with each offering a three-course, prix fixe dinner menu for just $35 per person.
