Are your kids in love with dragons and/or fairies? Then, you’re in luck! You can take them to enter a world of mythical creatures, where not only will they get to meet a fairy, but they will also get to go on a journey with her and meet up on other wonderous creatures including dragons.
Dragons and Fairies is a new show in Orlando by the Creative City Project who brought us Dazzling Nights and Down the Rabbit Hole. Younger kids will love entering an enchanted world and seeing the creatures that they have just read about in books being brought to life.
What is Dragons and Fairies About?
The show follows a young fairy named Freya as she goes on a journey through Tir Na Nog. As the name indicates, she meets up with dragons along the way. She also encounters other creatures as well, but we won’t tell you who they are; we don’t want to ruin all the fun.
The show is considered an immersive adventure, with guests “leaving Orlando and entering Tir Na Nog”. You interact with Freya as she leads you along the paths and you are up close to all the performers; there is no stage to separate you from the action.
The show is made up of different vignettes which are performed throughout Leu Gardens. Freya interacts with you while you walk, so you never feel as if you have left the performance.
While the performances may be the “star” of the show, the lighting at Leu Gardens is definitely not second fiddle to the show itself. The lighting is truly stunning and for the adults it may actually be the highlight. Seeing all the lit pathways and trees and even lights made to look like fireflies was my favorite part of the show. My 7-year old would disagree, as getting to meet dragons, fairies and other creatures was the highlight for him.
If you have younger children, children who are still at the age where they believe in dragons and fairies, they will thoroughly enjoy the show. I would not recommend it for older children. As for the adults, the gorgeous lighting and creativity will keep you captivated.
Going on a trip for Spring Break? You will definitely want to check out Viator for all of your activity needs. You can book food tours, water activities, walking tours and more.
