Marvel at the magic of Disney storytelling in Cirque du Soleil’s “Drawn to Life.” Follow Julie into the world of animation as she works to finish a project left for her by her late father, a former Disney animator. During her magical journey, Julie learns about the art of animation, her father and herself—with a little help from some colorful characters.


New this year, Cirque du Soleil offers Sunday matinee performances. These afternoon showtimes are perfect for families, especially those with little ones. “Based on feedback from guests, we determined this new schedule will offer great daytime opportunities for travelers and locals to see the show, especially those with children,” said Heather Reilly, company manager for “Drawn to Life.”

Guests can now enjoy two performances daily, Wednesday through Sunday. Showtimes are 5:30 and 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 1:30 and 4 p.m. Sundays. The show runs approximately 90 minutes, so it’s the ideal length for families and gives you plenty of time to enjoy the theme parks before or after the show.


This collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation and Walt Disney Imagineering has been dazzling audiences since November 2021 at Disney Springs. “Drawn to Life” combines the magic and storytelling you know and love from Disney with the mind-blowing acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil. There’s something for everyone, from the edgy costumes to the heart-felt storytelling to the amazing acrobatic feats. It’s a must-see show for locals and travelers alike. Not only is the show aesthetically dazzling, but it’s full of genuine emotion that will keep you engaged and thinking about it long after you’ve left the theater.

Redefining the way the world views the circus, Cirque du Soleil has entertained more than 180 million people in over 60 different countries. “Drawn to Life” is a fabulous way to introduce your family to live entertainment and Cirque du Soleil, as it features familiar faces and ensures that little ones stay engaged in the story.
