Disney has today announced that a new Cirque du Soleil show will be coming to Disney Springs.

Nearly twenty years after teaming up to bring “La Nouba” to the stage, the two entertainment companies are working together on a new collaboration.

This original show will be created by Cirque du Soleil and will pay homage to Disney’s rich history of animation, with a vivid story told in a way that only Cirque du Soleil can deliver. Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, elaborated, sharing “We are incredibly inspired by Disney’s immense creative universe. We are convinced that bringing Disney’s magic to life on stage will touch audiences and bring them back to their childhood.”

An opening date is yet to be announced. The current La Nouba show will have its final performance on December 31 2017.

What about the top level (206)?

For Drawn to Life, when they say that "there are no bad seats," IMO, there are. There are screens, which enhance the show, that can't be seen from the extreme sides.

Okay we decided to go on our trip. We want to stay in the $85 sections, which one would be the best?

Well, something vantablackish, they were practically invisible.

Are you sure they used vantablack? Didn't know it was available in any cloth...

I was there tonight! They couldn't get the two double wheeled apparatus up into the recess of the stage's attic. At least at first. It took about 10-15 minutes, then the show continued. It was hard to tell what was happening with the stage hands wearing vantablack cloaks. Good thing my camera has a low light and zoom settings so I could see what they were working on. Lotta people took a potty break.

No not really. There really isn't a bad seat in that theater the way it's designed.

Would the $85 seats at the bottom level to the side be an awful viewing experience?

Does anyone know if the soundtrack is available to buy/stream?

Yeah we may make reservations at a Disney Springs restaurant instead.

What acts did these replace from the original concept? Someone said they had Diablos in the show

90 minutes with no intermission...you'll be pushing it.
