September is Magical Dining Month in Orlando, with delicious savings at more than 75 restaurants. Visit Orlando’s ninth annual event will begin with a special preview week August 25.

Participating eateries will offer prix fixe dinners for $33. Even better for groups, many of the restaurants are located in meeting hotels that will have Stay and Dine packages during the event. Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, for instance, is offering a standard guestroom and dinner for two at Hemingway’s Restaurant, starting at $149 per night. At Rosen Shingle Creek, you can get a deluxe room and dinner for two at A Land Remembered or Cala Bella, starting at $185 per night.

Magical Dining Month will donate $1 from each meal served to the Foundation for Foster Children, which supports local foster youth by providing intensive tutoring, typical childhood experiences and volunteer mentors who help foster children make the often difficult transition to adult independence. In 2013, Magical Dining Month raised nearly $75,000 for its designated charity, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida.
