Drawn to Life is a must do when visiting Walt Disney World. It is one of the best live shows that I’ve ever seen, and I used to be heavily involved with the theater community. It’s pricey, but if you’re looking for a splurge it’s the perfect solution. There are no bad seats in the theater, so buy the cheapest ones! Drawn to Life is unique because it’s 100 percent Cirque du Soleil and 100 percent Disney. It’s the perfect solution for a day outside of the theme parks, or for the evening when you arrive but don’t want to use a day from your ticket.

If you plan to see Drawn to Life on your 2023 Walt Disney World vacation, there have been some changes to the show times. Here is the official press release.


 Drawn to Lifethe dazzling live theatrical production presented by Cirque du Soleil and Disney, has released its schedule for 2023 and will include new matinee show times on Sundays. Tickets for next year’s performances are available for sale now at

Beginning Jan. 4, 2023, guests will be able to enjoy Drawn to Life with two performances daily, Wednesdays through Sundays at Disney Springs. Wednesday through Saturday showtimes will be 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. and two Sunday matinees at 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.

“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, Drawn to Life Company Manager.

Drawn to Life has been delighting audiences at Disney Springs West Side since its November 2021 premiere with an imaginative blend of timeless Disney magic and remarkable Cirque du Soleil artistry.

The family-friendly 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, acrobatic performances, dazzling choreography, musical scores and brand-new animation lovingly created by Disney Animation artists.
