Every year, Visit Orlando offers residents and tourists Magical Dining, which is where you get to try three course meals for $35 at participating restaurants.
This year, Visit Orlando extended Magical Dining, so rather than being for a month, we now get an extra month to enjoy this great offer.
I’ve been to quite a few restaurants in the past for Magical Dining, but this year I decided to go to The Melting Pot in Longwood.
The Melting Pot
If you’ve ever been to the melting pot, then you are probably aware that this is a fondue restaurant.
The Melting Pot can be quite pricey, but thanks to Magical Dining, I was able to try them out for $35.
In order to experience Magical Dining, you must have a reservation with The Melting Pot.
Once we got there, we sat in a very secluded spot , which was great for social distancing. The place was a bit dark for me, but this is perfect for anyone wanting to go on a romantic date with their special someone.
To start off, my friend and I had to choose one cheese fondue to share. We were kind of indecisive because the options are all so good, but we ended up going with the bacon and Brie.
There was quite a mix of food to dip into the cheese. From apples to broccoli, I was quite excited to try everything with the cheese. The apple in my opinion tasted really good with cheese.
For the entree, my friend and I each got to pick our own. I chose to get steak lovers, which had all sorts of steak. We did choose the grill type, which is what they ask you before they set up the grill at the table.
Once it’s ready, then we started to grill, which was fun, but it did take a while since there was a lot to grill.
We also got sides with our entrees, such as asparagus, mushrooms and zucchini. We also got a variety of sauces for our meats.
By the time we got to dessert, we were rather full. I didn’t think I’d feel as full as I did when I first looked at the menu, but fondues and steak will do that to you.
Even though we were rather full, we still wanted to try our dessert. We decided to get the Flaming Turtle, which is white chocolate melted with caramel and cookie butter topped off with honey roasted almonds.
Not only was the chocolate amazing, but the treats we got were just as good! We had mini cake, bananas, strawberries, rice crispy treats and other delicious treats. Of course my favorite was dipping the fruit into the chocolate.
Some Magical Dining menus will have drinks, but I didn’t see one for The Melting Pot. I did however get a drink to go with my Magical Dining meal.
Overall, this was a fantastic choice! Not only was I finally able to try out a restaurant that I consider pricey, but I was able to do this for $35. On top of that, I was able to social distance from where I sat and I didn’t wait long at all for my table.
