What is there to do Orlando besides Disney? That was my question a couple of weeks ago as I realized I hadn’t planned a darn thing for my trip to Orlando for a conference I was attending. One of the first options that popped up was Cirque du Soleil in Orlando. I thought the only show were in Vegas so I started to get excited. I was even more excited when was presented the opportunity to attend this show last Tuesday evening with my mom.
The show in Orlando is Cirque du Soleil – La Nouba it performs two evening shows year round Tuesday through Saturday (with a few exceptions)! The show has its own custom built building that is beautiful and full of exceptional technology.
We got there very thrilled to attend and find a parking spot. (Parking was not a problem at all as the theater is at Downtown Disney!) We climbed the stairs to what seemed to be a circus tent. That is the best description I can give you. After we got a bucket of popcorn (I am a recovering popcorn junkie), we took our seats in the middle section. There were two clowns who opened the show. Very funny. They would reappear throughout the show.
The show started and I realized the problem I was going to have with the show right away. I seriously needed six sets of eyes. Every where I looked something was happening. Up, down, right, left, middle, coming out of the floor, the sky, you name it something was happening.
Now for my favorite part … the little girls (my name) but officially the Diabolos. Maybe it is because I have two little girls that I loved these little girls so much but these little girls were beyond amazing … and they were beautiful!
To sum the show up, it was amazing. I think I cold watch it another six times and see something different every single time. It is just that amazing and that full of action!
So if you head to Orlando, check out Cirque du Soleil – La Nouba. You will be in for an evening that you will remember for a long, long time!!
