Cirque du Soleil’s Drawn to Life to Open “Sometime in the Fall”

Cirque du Soleil’s “La Nouba” show at Disney Springs closed on December 31, 2017. While the massive tent on the West Side of Disney Springs has remained without a Cirque du Soleil show since, a new show was announced called “Drawn to Life” presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney. The show has been highly anticipated but due to the pandemic, we’ve had some highs and lows when it comes to debut dates. Well, now we are learning at least a season confirmation… “sometime in the fall”.


Due to COVID-19, the initial April 17, 2020 “Drawn to Life” debut was cancelled. The next debut date released was November 5, 2020 which was then pushed back to February 10, 2021. Unfortunately, the February date was cancelled and we haven’t received a date since.

As reported by LA Times during a discussion with Cirque Chief Executive Daniel Lamarre: “Cirque is also working on setting a new opening date for “Drawn to Life,” its collaboration with Disney that was set to open in Orlando, Fla., last year. “It’s a tribute to Disney animation, and we felt honored to have the opportunity to do a show with the IP [intellectual property] of Disney,” Lamarre said. “We should be able to open sometime in the fall.”
