Mark your calendars — Visit Orlando has posted the menus for its Magical Dining Month.

  • Magical Dining Month: Aug. 25-Oct. 1
  • 3-course 'prix fixe' meals for $35 per person
  • More than 100 restaurants participating

The event, now in its 12th year, starts Aug. 25 and continues through Oct. 1.

More than 100 restaurants in the Orlando area are participating, offering three-course "prix fixe" dinners for $35 per person. One dollar from each meal goes to support two nonprofits: Freedom Ride and BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation. The event also helps showcase Orlando’s culinary scene.

New restaurants this year include Paddlefish at Disney Springs, Boatwrights Dining Hall at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort and Amatista Cookhouse at Universal Orlando’s Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. They join returning participants such as The Capital Grille, STK at Disney Springs and The Ravenous Pig.

The menu for Paddlefish, for example includes fried green tomatoes, green salad, New England clam chowder, conch chowder or wheat berry salad for appetizers; fish and chips, shrimp and grits, half chicken, pork chop and applesauce or the catch of the day for entrées; and carrot cake, key lime pie or strawberry shortcake for desserts.

Here’s how it works: Ask for the Magical Dining Month menu at any of the participating restaurants. Reservations can also be made online or by call the restaurant directly.
