Cirque du Soleil’s Drawn to Life is the first of the troupe’s shows to be created by Cirque and Disney together. It currently runs from Tuesdays through Saturdays, but beginning in January 2023, the show will begin running from Wednesdays through Sundays. Both Sunday performances will be matinees as one will take place at 1:30 p.m., and one will take place at 4:00 p.m.

Showtimes for performances on Wednesdays through Saturdays will not change. They will remain at 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

“Based on feedback from Guests, we determined this new schedule will offer great daytime opportunities for travelers and locals to see the show, especially those with children,” said Heather Reilly, the company manager of Drawn to Life in a statement.

Drawn to Life tells the story of a young daughter’s love for her father who is a Walt Disney animator. The magic of Disney is weaved into Cirque du Soleil’s acrobatics, choreography, Disney-flavored original music, and brilliantly-colored costumes.

Drawn to Life first opened in November 2021 after delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. It followed the long-running show called La Nouba, which closed in 2017 after having run inside the iconic white tent structure at Disney Springs for 19 years.

Ticket prices can vary based on demand, but generally adult tickets cost $80, and tickets for children cost $60. For more information about tickets and showtimes for Drawn to Life at Disney Springs, visit
