Visit Orlando's Magical Dining 2020: Disney World Restaurants

Each year locals and visitors can try some of Orlando's best restaurants while supporting a fantastic cause. Feed the Need Florida helps to feed people who do not have access to healthy food. Participating in Magical Dining Month gives $1 to Feed the Need Florida.

Visit Orlando's Magical Dining offer gives diners 38 days of access to a $35 per person prix-fixe menu from August 28th. Many of the participating restaurants are Orlando's best. Here are the six Disney World restaurants that will be participating in this year's presentation.

This listing provides the prix fixe menus for each restaurant along what I look forward to trying during my visits.

Il Mulino New York Trattoria (Italian)

Walt Disney World Swan Resort

Il Mulino is a staple from the New York original. While it isn't the best Il Mulino that I have been to, New York and Miami are my favorites; they offer a more adult atmosphere that many Disney World restaurants can lack. During my visit to Il Mulino, I will try the Caesar salad, white linguini, and clam sauce, then finish with the Tiramisu.


Arancini Di Carne

Italian rice balls stuffed with house-made bolognese over spicy marinara sauce.

Calamari Fritti

lightly fried calamari with a spicy marinara sauce


steamed cold water black mussels with white wine sauce

the classic il mulino caesar salad

JALEO at Disney Springs (Spanish)

Disney Springs

Jaleo is donating an additional $1 to Feed the Need Florida with the purchase of a featured in-house bottle of wine. Jose Andres is known for his generosity. He demonstrated his kindness by donating the restaurant's food to employees during Florida's lockdown.

Jaleo is a big noise. Jose Andres hails from Asturias, the north of Spain, and his background prevails in this menu. As I love Asturias, having lived there for three years, my excitement to enjoy the gastronomy is unbound. Set up similarly to Spains traditional menu of the day, there is a lot to try and enjoy. I look forward to trying the traditional tomato bread and manchego, the green salad, the papayas bravas, garlic shrimp, and flan. I hope that Jaleo has been able to obtain la Casera. In Asturias, the locals cut their wine with Casera, allowing them to drink a simple sangria. I prefer Casera solo.

Kimono (Japanese)

Walt Disney World Swan Hotel

Kimono is an intimate lounge located at the Swan Hotel. Traditionally it is teaming with conference-goers as the karaoke is simple fun that draws them in. Now is an excellent time to visit because conventions are minimal.

When I was a concierge at a local luxury resort, the feedback that I received from guests about this restaurant was always glowing. I haven't decided if I will get to Kimono during Magical Dining, should I choose to go here, I would order: miso soup, spider rainbow roll, squid nigiri, and yuzu dome.

Terralina Crafted Italian (Italian)

Here is what I will be trying: bruschetta, pork chop, for dessert, I am genuinely torn between the gelato sundae and the lemon panna cotta.
