Rapunzel lives with her loving yet very overprotective grandmother, Nan,  after her mother leaves across the big sea. Year after year, Nan builds their tower higher and higher to protect her granddaughter from the disgraceful, scary world. It isn’t until Rafi, a local boy, comes by and befriends Rapunzel that she finally gets the courage to be free and to discover the world outside her tower window.

There’s no place quite like Bunnyland at Linvilla Orchards. Hop aboard a hayride as it carries you through the woods to visit the Easter Bunny’s house, where you'll have the chance to meet Linvilla's, Easter Bunny! While visiting, one of our Bunny's friends will tell you a magical story, and you will receive a special treat. If you would like to capture your special visit, be sure to bring your camera since the Easter Bunny likes to take pictures with all special guests!

Visit the Bunny in Lower Level Center Court to capture your spring family memories.
