The Cirque du Soleil theater at Disney Springs is being repainted ahead of its planned reopening later this year.

Painting crews are using high-reach lifts to begin prepping for the paint work.

"Drawn to Life,"  that was set to open in Spring 2020 at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World, and was just days away from opening when the COVID-19 shutdown began. Asked recently by the LA Times about "Drawn to Life," Cirque CEO Daniel Lamarre said, "We should be able to open sometime in the fall."

We understand that limited rehearsals have been taking place among small groups of performers at the Cirque theater in Disney Springs.

When I worked at La Nouba (YEARS ago) Disney ran the box office and if something like that came up, we - on a case by case basis - would issue refunds. Cirque will be running the box office for Drawn To Life so I can't say what their "policies" will be.

When they announce, I really hope tickets don‘t go on sale until the fall. Canada is still locked down a d I am sure there are no refunds for tickets.

Any updates? I know they've been training but do we have ANY timeline?

I wonder if they will be inline with pre-covid prices?

Any inkling on when they'll start selling tickets again?

The cast has been training within their pods for the last several weeks. They're returning to dress status today. The show needs to be re-teched a little based on some additions.

Hmm. okay. Maybe I will just assume I will need a credit card to purchase tickets online. Thanks!

Small groups have been back for a while now doing rehearsals. So not sure if they are referring to the entire cast or not.

Take it for what it's worth, but rumor has it that cast members are being called back to Cirque du Soleil Drawn to Life as of this morning, according to the Ear for Each other facebook group.

Not certain on gift cards, but we had a credit on our room account last trip and the only way we could buy cirque tickets and do it as a room account charge was in person at the box office. Not even the front desk at the hotel could, they had to do credit card. But in person at the box office they had the magic band readers. So it’s quite likely the same will be true with Disney gift cards.

Can we use WDW gift cards to pay for Cirque tickets when booking online? I have never been to Cirque at Disney Springs, so no clue how that all works.

Nice, they usually wait until it gets worse.

When they say "fall", does end of November / early December sound like that timeframe? (*crosses fingers*)
