We’re right in the middle of Orlando’s Magical Dining Month and if you’re visiting the Orlando area before October 3, you should consider indulging.
What is Magical Dining Month?
It’s a program that runs through October 2 in which select restaurants offer three course dinners for $33 per person. One dollar from each meal benefits The Russell Home for Atypical Children, who helps support special needs children and ‘child-like’ adults.
What restaurants are participating in Magical Dining Month?
The short answer is more than 90 in the Orlando area. Here’s a few of our favorites at or near the theme parks:
On-site Hotels at Universal Orlando
- Amatista Cookhouse at Sapphire Falls (menu)
- Bice Ristorante at Portofino Bay (menu)
- Mama Della’s Ristorante at Portofino Bay (menu)
- Emeril’s Tchoup Chop at Royal Pacific (menu)
- Islands Dining Room at Royal Pacific (menu)
- The Kitchen at Hard Rock Hotel (menu)
CityWalk at Universal Orlando
- Sharks Underwater Grill (menu)
This one is extra special. Even though it’s inside SeaWorld Orlando, you don’t need to have theme park admission in order to participate in Magical Dining. You can simply call the restaurant at (407) 370-1566 to make a reservation between 3pm and 5pm. You’ll be escorted into the park to the restaurant, however, you are allowed to remain in the park until closing. This means you could dine here and then experience Mako, Orlando’s tallest, fastest, and longest coaster, without even purchasing a ticket!
Not to mention, Sharks is one of our favorite restaurants at any theme park!
