Visit Orlando Magical Dining - AVA MediterrAegean

One of the best Central Florida foodie events of the year returns August 16th as Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining event presented by Orlando Health kicks off its 2024 edition citywide.

What is Magical Dining?

During Magical Dining, which will run through September 30, 2024, participating Orlando-area restaurants will be offering three-course prix fixe dinner menu showcasing the best of their dishes.

New this year, some menus will be priced at $40 per person, and some will be prices at $60 per person, allowing a greater variety of participating restaurants. Magical Dining is a great way to try new restaurants on your list, or rediscover old favorites, and it’s super easy to enjoy. Simply ask for the Magical Dining menu when ordering.

Eat Well For A Good Cause

In 2024, $1 from every $40 meal and $2 from every $60 meal served during Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining presented by Orlando Health will benefit one or more local nonprofits that help people in need.

Some of the donated funds will focus on The Mustard Seed of Central Florida, which is helping rebuild the lives of families and individuals who have suffered disaster or personal tragedy by providing household furnishings and clothing while being environmentally responsible to the Central Florida community.

As the only furniture and clothing bank in the region, The Mustard Seed serves over 3,000 individuals annually, transforming houses into homes and giving those in need a fresh start.

Visit Orlando will also award a $2,000 donation to one local nonprofit in each of Orange County’s six commission districts
