    Eat for a Cause

    Each year, a local charity benefits from Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Month, receiving $1 from each meal served. This year, due to the immense growth and popularity of the program,  Magical Dining Month will benefit two Orlando nonprofit organizations: Freedom Ride Inc. and BASE Camp Children's Foundation.

    Freedom  Ride offers therapeutic horseback riding programs that enrich the lives of children and adults with physical, emotional and learning disabilities. BASE  Camp Children's Foundation provides a base of support for children and families facing the challenge of living with cancer and other life-threatening hematological illnesses.

    This year's restaurants - from downtown Orlando to Restaurant Row and beyond — offer a menu and setting for every occasion. A full list of all participating restaurants, menus and OpenTable reservations are available at
