Orlando Magical Dining - The Tastiest Time of The Year

Published on July 22, 2019 by SarahE

Magical Dining - Eat For A Cause

Orlando might be famous for the mighty mouse and wand waving wizard, but a food revolution has taken place in recent years. Central Florida is blessed with a culinary community of awesome eats. From quirky food trucks to the ultimate in fine dining.

Magical Dining is one of Central Florida's premier culinary events. The 2019 event runs August 23rd through September 30th.

During Magical Dining, foodies can dine on haute cuisine from over 120 fine dining restaurants offering a $35 three-course, prix fixe dinner menu. Plus there's special options for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets.

A record-breaking 120+ restaurants are ready to serve up culinary delights at a fraction of the cost. Eleven new restaurants, including two celebrity chef restaurants, have joined the program for the first time.

Fresh, local and creative is the name of the game. Magical Dining Month, organized by Visit Orlando, gives a unique opportunity to experience the Orlando food scene at a fraction of the cost.

And $1 of every magical meal is donated to two great local causes, so it's a win-win. Over $1 million dollars have been donated since the Magical Dining Month launched in 2009.

Magical Dining will benefit two nonprofits that help local children and families: the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Greater Orlando and Lighthouse Central Florida.

"Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining is one of the most powerful ways our industry makes a difference in the community. Last year’s donation topped $250,000, so you can imagine the significant impact these funds can make,” said George Aguel, president and CEO of Visit Orlando. “Along with our valuable restaurant members, we are excited to raise awareness and support for these two meaningful causes."

National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Greater Orlando

  • NAMI Greater Orlando is a grassroots support network for individuals and families affected by mental health conditions. Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining will benefit the organization’s “Ending the Silence” program, which helps raise awareness and change perceptions among teenagers about mental health and suicide prevention.

Lighthouse Central Florida

  • Lighthouse Central Florida helps individuals with vision loss adjust to their reality with confidence. Proceeds from Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining will enable Lighthouse to expand its early intervention programs for children so they can adapt, integrate and enjoy active, productive lives.

Orlando Magical Dining


Meet The Author
Our Florida journey began over 2 decades ago when we were searching for somewhere warm for winters. We discovered Florida was the perfect choice. We started spending every winter there and absolutely loved it. Orlando quickly became our permanent ‘winter home’. We were true Snowbirds! We decided to make our commitment a little more concrete in 2005 and bought our first vacation home – Serendipity at Indian Creek. We soon discovered we LOVED being in the hospitality world, so we decided to expand a little. We purchased Sleepy Hollow in 2010. Five years later we came across Serenity Lake House in 2015 and just had to have it to complete our portfolio. We now spend half the year on Disney’s doorstep in Orlando,. The rest of the time we're either in our second home in Scotland overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch, or enjoying time with family in Cyprus. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it? Ours is served with Pixie Dust on top :)
