LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The next time you see a performance of “Drawn to Life” at Disney Springs, it may look a little different.

“Drawn to Life” first debuted at Disney Springs back in 2021 and features an imaginative blend of timeless Disney magic and remarkable Cirque du Soleil artistry. The show tells the story of the love between a father and a daughter, drawing inspiration from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 100-year heritage of storytelling. The show celebrates iconic Disney stories and characters through innovative design, quintessential Cirque du Soleil acrobatic performances, dazzling choreography, musical scores and brand-new animation lovingly created by Disney Animation artists.

Cirque said one of the new acts is being called Icarian Games. During the performance, which pays tribute to Disney’s animated forests and the creatures that live there, a pair of Ethiopian artists perform acrobatic feats in which one lies on their back and uses their legs and feet to toss the other performer in the air. Cirque said to make room for this new act, the former stilt walkers’ performance was removed.

During the “Dream of Colors” act, aerial hoop artists will take to the air and perform various tricks as human trapeze artists “paint” dramatic colors on a suspended wheel. Show leaders said the Rhythmic Gymnastics act will also feature a new “flying” guitarist that will perform as acrobats soar and flip in the sky.

In conjunction with the show updates, Florida residents can now enjoy a special ticket offer, providing the perfect opportunity for both new and returning guests to experience the show.

Florida residents can purchase tickets up to 15% off select seating categories. The limited-time offer runs through March 12 and is valid for performances through May 7.
