Spotlight: September In Orlando Is Magical Dining Month

Play Audio

We’re into Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining month, and with more than 70 restaurants participating this year, you’d better get busy.

For the uninitiated, restaurants that are a part of Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining Month offer a special prix fixe, three-course menu, usually an appetizer, soup or salad, an entree and a dessert, with two or three choices in each category.

This year the fixed prix of the menus is $33, plus tax and gratuity and whatever drinks you have.

The restaurants pledge to pay $1 from from every meal to a charity. Elevate Orlando is the 2015 charity.

So, here’s how savvy veterans work MagDinMo. The key is to check out the list of participating restaurants at the official website, look over their menus, then go to the restaurant’s website and look at the regular menu. Check out the items that are available through the MagDinMore menu and compare the $33 cost to ordering the items a la carte from the regular menu. Usually by the time you add everything up you’re looking at a savings by going with the special menu.

Also keep in mind that many of the restaurants won’t automatically offer the Magical Dining Month menu, so be sure to ask for it by name. Some favorites participating this year include:
K restaurant
Rusty Spoon
The Oceanaire Seafood Room
And newcomers, Soco, Artisan’s Table and Urban Tide.

So get out there and try something new or revisit an old favorite.
