Hope you’re hungry because Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining returns August 18 with over 100 of Orlando’s best restaurants. Each eatery will serve guests three-course prix-fixe menus, which will be either $40 or $60 as part of their new tiered system.
2023’s roster includes 21 new restaurants and eight recognized by the MICHELIN Guide.
“In our 18th year, it was time to recognize the incredible growth and range of Orlando’s culinary scene by expanding Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining with the debut of a $60 menu tier, in addition to the current $40 menu offerings,” said Casandra Matej, president & CEO of Visit Orlando. “We are also proud to announce our support for The Lifeboat Project, an organization shining a light on the dark realities of human trafficking. One dollar from each $40 menu and two dollars from each $60 menu will offer the opportunity for Magical Dining to have an even greater impact on our community.”
