We were invited to be the first to preview Ravello’s 3-course Magical Dining Month menu and it was by far one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had since I started writing for Tasty Chomps.  I will find any and every reason to visit the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World because I love everything about their property and all of the staff is super friendly and hospitable.  The valet staff are always on point and super welcoming as well.  You can expect a flawless 5-star experience at this resort every time.  I enjoyed trying the Magical Dining menu at Ravello and you can too at a deliciously affordable price.

What is Magical Dining Month?
3-course dinner from a special prix fixe menu
Price: $35 per person
Over 100 + participating restaurants
Beginning August 25 through October 1
This year, $1 of each meal from Magical Dining Month will benefit two charities – Freedom Ride & BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Last year, Magical Dining Month raised over $195,125 for the Russell Home for Atypical Children charity!

Our dinner was scheduled on the same day as the solar eclipse so we got to try a special cocktail called “Eclipse of the Tart”.
