Visit Orlando has designated six unique dining districts full of choices for foodies. Once a year, Visit Orlando also puts together Magical Dining Month during entire month of September. During September, seventy restaurants in the six dining districts serve up three-course prix-fixe dinners. The annual event's website, OrlandoMagicalDining.com, features menus, message boards, reservations and a mobile version launching late August. The Six Dining Districts:
Convention District - This area, encompassing International Drive, hosts the largest concentration of Magical Dining restaurants, including popular steakhouses like The Capital Grille, Charley's Steak House and Vito's Chop House.
