The iconic white tent theater at Disney Springs is buzzing with activity once again as Cirque du Soleil artists are returning to the stage to train and rehearse for a spectacular new show. 

Drawn to Life presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney is scheduled to open on Nov. 18, 2021. Tickets will go on sale Aug. 20 to the general public. 

Drawn to Life is a thrilling collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering. At its core, the show is about the love between a father and a daughter with a story drawing inspiration from Disney’s 100-year heritage of animation. The family-friendly show brings timeless Disney stories and characters to life in an unforgettable way through the use of innovative design, acrobatic performances, dazzling choreography, musical scores, brand-new animation lovingly created by Disney Animation artists, and some extra touches of Disney magic.

Originally scheduled to debut in spring 2020, Drawn to Life was in its final rehearsals when the pandemic brought live theater performances to a halt. While waiting to return to the stage, artists stayed in shape by training at home or at local facilities. Now, the intermission is over and being back in the theater together is a dream come true for the cast and crew!

  • Hi. Seven of us will be at WDW in May 2022. The dates we’ve booked for travel, I see that there are no Drawn To Life shows. Will there be more shows booked or is this blocked out for the performer’s vacation. We are traveling 5/10/2022 – 5/18/2022.

  • Great…when are we going to find out about annual passes??

  • That’s great news I hope Mickey Mouse can do special things with Cirque Du Soleil in the lead-up to Drawn To Life’s debut after all it is on his birthday, maybe Mickey Mouse can be a honorary Cirque Du Soleil artist and one day perform with some of their acrobats and contortionists past and present and future!
