The much-anticipated Disney and Cirque du Soleil show "Drawn to Life" opened Thursday at the Walt Disney World Resort's Disney Springs.
Disney describes the show as "a love letter to Disney Animation" brought to life by Cirque du Soleil's performers. It features new characters and an original score and marks the first time Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering have collaborated on a theatrical production.

"Drawn to Life" was originally scheduled to open in March 2020, but was delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Tickets are available online starting at $85. The show is performed Tuesday through Saturday.
"This show has been in the works for years and to finally share it with the world is a dream come true," said Daniel Lamarre, CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. "This collaboration has been unlike anything we've done before. We hope it will mean as much to our fans as it has to us -- it's not just our show now, it's theirs too."
Cirque du Soleil has a long history at Disney's Florida campus. Before "Drawn to Life," "La Nouba" was performed in the Disney Springs theater for 19 years.
