While it seems we will be waiting until at least the second half of 2019 for the Disney Animation-Inspired Cirque Du Soleil show to debut at Disney Springs, we won’t have to wait quite that long for a new Cirque show to perform at Walt Disney World.
In the interim, Cirque Du Soleil’s Luzia will perform at Disney Springs sometime in the Spring of 2019, likely staying for a few months. This show is one of the traveling Cirque shows performed in a temporary stadium which travels the world. Cities that Luzia will be performing in are currently announced through December 2018, but nothing after that is. Inside sources infer that Luzia should arrive at Disney Springs by February-March 2019 with an undisclosed end date.
Original plans called for a temporary Cirque Du Soleil show to come to Disney Springs this Summer (2018), but its appears that Disney would like to have the third parking garage at Disney Springs completed before adding something like Luzia that will put a further strain on the parking situation.
No start date for the Disney-inspired show that will fill the former La Nouba theater has been announced as of yet either, but it would obviously be after Luzia departs Walt Disney World.
“LUZIA takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. With a surrealistic series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.”
Disney nor Cirque Du Soleil are yet to make any formal announcement of this.
