Cirque du Soleil Ticket Information:


Cirque du Soleil is a theatrical performance unlike anything you have experienced before. Cirque du Soleil was conceived by a group of street performers in Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec. With a desire to inspire, astound and transport patrons to a new, unearthly world, the early eighties marked the beginning of this novel venue.  This vision of the original Cirque troupe has grown precipitously.

Cirque du Soleil is not a traditional circus as the name implies.  At Cirque du Soleil, you will not find any animals in the cast.  Unlike other circuses, there are no dancing bears, lions leaping through hoops or elephants doing tricks.  Rather, Cirque du Soleil is a completely immersive combination of circus and theatrical presentation combining elements of modern dance, staging, humor and acrobatic stunts.  Dispersed throughout the show are acts of hilarity, peculiarity, inspiration, excitement and amazement.  The experience of a Cirque du Soleil show always ends with you wondering how it was possible for time to move so fast from the intriguing, attention grabbing pre-show, to the final standing ovation.  The creativity of this highly sophisticated show abounds and enthralls.  The costumes are wonderfully exotic, the sets unusual, the action of the brilliant choreography non-stop, and the original music and dramatic lighting is capturing to say the least.  

It is simply not possible to describe what exactly Cirque du Soleil is with words.  You have to experience it to truly understand it.  

  • Cirque du Soleil was founded in Quebec, Canada in 1984
  • Since 1984, more than 20 million people from around the world have seen one of Cirque du Soleil's productions.
  • On a typical weekend in 1999, some 50,000 people saw one of Cirque's several shows being staged simultaneously around the world.
  • Cirque currently employs more than 2,000 people, including 460 performers, from several countries
  • The average age of a Cirque du Soleil employee is 32.
  • Cirque du Soleil has performed in over 120 cities throughout the world, including Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, Montreal, Quebec City, and Toronto.

Performances are held Tuesday through Saturday at 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. There are no performances on Sundays and Mondays.

You must enter the theatre at least 10 minutes prior to show time, or risk having your seats resold to someone else. You can not get your money back, but you can exchange your tickets for another date.  I recommend arriving 1 hour early as the Cirque du Soleil experience begins before the  "official" show time.  This will also allow time for the bathroom and picking up refreshments.   

If you order tickets from Cirque du Soliel 10 days or more in advance, they will be mailed to you and a shipping charge for registered mail will apply.  If tickets are ordered 8 days or less in advance, they can be picked up at the Will Call Window at the theatre box office.  

Additional Information about Cirque du Soleil:

La Nouba
is a popular show and it is not unusual for shows to completely sell-out.  If you decide to watch the show on the "spur of the moment", check the box office at the theatre as they may have a few seats left over (or maybe some "no show" seats).  

The Cirque du Soleil theatre is located at Downtown Disney West Side.  Disney Bus Transportation is provided for Disney resort guests to the West Side.  Valet and regular car parking closest to the theatre is the West Side lot.  Taxi service is also available to the theatre.

The theatre has seating for 1 671 guests and not one of those seats is a bad one.  The staging of La Nouba permits a great view from any vantage point in the theatre.

Most guests dress up a little bit for the show, and I would recommend doing so.  The dress is by no means formal, but do dress up like you would going to the theatre in your home town.  Those families in the shorts and t-shirts they wore to the parks tend to stick out in the crowd entering the theatre.  Besides, dressing up a little and going out for dinner adds to the experience, right?  ;o)  (convince Dad to at least put on some khakis and a nice golf shirt!)

There is a snack bar inside the theatre as well as a gift shop.  Another merchandise shop selling items from all Cirque du Soleil productions is open to the general public on the main floor of the theatre, adjacent to the box office.
