More than a year after the reopening of Disney World, several guest offerings are now starting to return. At Disney Springs, some long-awaited entertainment is finally celebrating its opening!
Disney World began its temporary closure a few days before the performances of the new Cirque du Soleil show. Attracted to life, were ready to begin. Now, the time has finally come to lift the curtain!
We are on the first night of performance. Looks like we had been waiting so long to see this new show since it originally opened in the spring of 2020! We are very happy to see that its time has finally come.
Attracted to life follows the story of Julie, a 12-year-old girl, who finds an unfinished piece of animation left to her by her father, who died.
Julie works to finish the animation piece and embarks on an exciting adventure along the way.
Using her imagination, Julie embarks on an animated journey, where she will meet all sorts of unique characters. Throughout the show, you’ll see images depicting all sorts of classic Disney characters, so keep your eyes peeled!
During the show’s delay, the creators had time to review the story and even add some new acts. The show has a total of 10 events that guests can enjoy.
Throughout the show, the international cast of 62 artists will perform some truly amazing feats.
Cirque has shared that this is a “first-of-its-kind” collaboration between Cirque and Disney and that it really is one “Love Letter to Disney Animation Performed Through Cirque du Soleil Acrobatic Performances.”
Tonight, we have to be in the audience for the opening night of the show!
