I recently booked a family to Walt Disney World. One of my recommendations was to break away from the crowds one night and escape the parks to head over to the Downtown Disney area. While there I suggested that they have a fun family night with dinner at Planet Hollywood followed by the Cirque du Soleil show La Nouba. After their return I contacted them, as I do with all my clients, to find out how the trip went. They raved about the Downtown Disney evening saying it was a good escape from the hustle of the park crowds and a great dinner and show to boot! Walt Disney World always offers high quality fun and entertainment and the edition of La Nouba keeps that tradition alive by providing a mesmerizing and extraordinary avant-garde circus spectacle performed by Cirque du Soleil. The show’s international cast of acrobats, athletes and performance artists do a great job “to party, to live it up,” and this theme is evident in the energetic performances, the colorful costumes and the moving live music of this show. Capped off with one of the great restaurants in the Downtown Disney area, in this case Planet Hollywood, you end up with a night to remember! One thing to keep in mind is that there are no performances on Sundays and Mondays when the show is black as well as on other select nights throughout the year. Also, reservations can be made up to six months in advance and it is highly recommended that you do so to attain the best seats. For those who opt to also dine out the Downtown Disney area offers a multitude of restaurants from an Irish Pub experience to a T-Rex Prehistoric family adventure. As such whether you are a family, or a couple looking for a night of romance there will be the perfect spot for you. As with the show, advance reservations are recommended when available. As a travel professional I recommend a night away from the hustle of the parks to rejuvenate and recharge and a night over at Downtown Disney at the Cirque du Soleil La Nouba show can provide that perfect escape!
