Magical Dining Month Returning for the 12th Year

Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month is one of the best value events in Orlando.  Many visitors don’t know about the event ,therefore, we thought we would share some details.  We don’t want you to miss out!

What Is Magical Dining Month

Magical Dining Month is an annual event that offers guests a prix fixe dinner for just $ 35.00 per person.  Many of the really high end restaurants in Orlando participate in the event, which gives guests a great chance to eat somewhere in which they wouldn’t visit under normal circumstances.

When Is Magical Dining Month

Magical Dining Month runs throughout September, with an added preview week starting 25th August.

What Can You Expect

There are usually 3 options for each of the courses, appetizer, entree and dessert.  The restaurants tend to use this opportunity to showcase their most popular dishes, however, they also use it to try out some of their new items and seasonal selections.

How Do You Book

The best restaurants quickly book up so it is best to call well in advance for a reservation.   Make sure you ask for the magical dining menu.

How Many Restaurants Participate

In 2017 there are 116 participating restaurants.

Where Are The Restaurants Located

The restaurants are literally scattered all around Orlando some areas include:

  • Disney/Lake Buena Vista
  • Universal
  • Downtown Orlando
  • Restaurant Row/ Sand Lake Road
  • Winter Park
  • International Drive

The cuisine offered is extremely varied you can expect literally every type of cuisine.  So there will be most certainly somewhere you want to visit.


The event gives guests the chance to eat in really popular restaurants in which they wouldn’t tend to visit otherwise.  It really is great value!


The menu if prix fixe which means you don’t get to choose from the full menu, however, we are never disappointed with the options.  You can check out the menu ahead of your visit.


One dollar from each dinner served will be donated to Freedom Ride and BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation.

In A Nutshell

Guests get the chance to eat in some of Floridas top restaurants at a fraction of the every day cost.


We haven’t actually eaten anywhere this year so far, however, we have previous years and we have never been disappointed.

We are visiting one of our favorite fun restaurants on Wednesday evening with some of our British friends who are on vacation.  We will be sure to bring you a full report!
