Immersive, open-air events like ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ might be the future of the arts in Orlando
Audience groups of 15 travel through Mead Garden as Alice leads them along the path. Leu Gardens is great for something like Dazzling Nights because ... we ended up having about 37,000 guests go through Dazzling Nights and most of that is paved. Mead Garden is quite different from Leu Gardens in that it's a little bit more rustic. What knowledge have you taken from doing Dazzling Nights and Bright Young Things, and then put toward this? Has presenting Bright Young Things, Dazzling Nights and Down the Rabbit Hole perhaps made you more of an outdoors person?orlandoweekly.com

NeSmith said many of the featured performers were let go from their jobs at local theme parks. Tickets are $22 per person on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and $25 per person Friday and Saturday.
