The popular show, La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil, has been performed at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World for almost 20 years, opening in 1998.  The show has been viewed by over 10 million guests in its long running time at the venue.  The show includes amazing acrobatic performers, break dancers, aerial bamboo, exciting choreography and so much more.  The show can be on the pricey side, but is a completely amazing show that has continued to WOW guests throughout the years.  We are sad to share that Disney has announced that the last performance of the show will be on December 31st, 2017.  That gives guests plenty of time to buy tickets and see the show before it is gone forever.

Jerry Nadal, Senior Vice President of the Resident Shows Division for Cirque du Soleil said, “We are incredibly proud of the success that La Nouba has had for nearly two decades.”  He went on to say, “We want to thank Walt Disney World Resort for a wonderful relationship over the years.  We look forward to announcing what’s next for Cirque du Soleil.”

Disney hasn’t announced yet what will replace this fantastic show.  Disney Parks Blog hinted that given the long-standing relationship that between Disney and Cirque du Soleil we can expect that there will be an announcement of what is to come very soon.  We know that Disney will want to offer something amazing in the theater to utilize the space.  We can’t wait to see what the future holds at Disney Springs!

How do you all feel about La Nouba closing forever?  Who will miss this fantastic show?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
