Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Returns Aug. 28 .. #Foodies #MagicalDining @VisitOrlando #FeedtheNeedFL

The best foodie event of the year returns August 28 as Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining event kicks off its 2020 edition.

During Magical Dining, which will run through October 4, participating restaurants will be offering a $35 three-course prix fixe dinner menu showcasing the best of their dishes. It’s a great way to try new restaurants on your list, or rediscover old favorites.

Plus, participating restaurants are going above and beyond with new safety measures. This year there are new takeout and delivery meal options for in-home dining, and the website now designates venues that also offer open-air and outdoor dining.

And that list of restaurants is comprised of a variety of cuisines, and located all around the Orlando area…even in the theme parks! Make a reservation at SeaWorld Orlando’s Sharks Underwater Grill and you can stay in the park until close after your reservation.

Even without a theme park, participating restaurants have so much to offer foodies! Try menus from DoveCote in downtown Orlando, Ravenous Pig in Winter Park, The H Cuisine in Dr Phillips (our review from 2019’s Magical Dining), and La Luce at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, among many others.

Due to limited seating capacity at participating restaurants, diners are strongly encouraged to make reservations in advance to ensure securing their preferred dates and times.

Now in its 15th year, Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining will again give $1 from each meal to benefit deserving local charities. This year’s recipient is Feed the Need Florida, which works to provide deserving families with healthy food during the COVID crisis. Participating restaurants will also give you the option to donate even more to Feed the Need with your meal.
