Select Disney Springs restaurants are offering meal deals tied to “Drawn to Life” performances by Cirque du Soleil.
Thirteen restaurants have devised prix fixe menus — under an Animated Evening umbrella — for dining before or after the Cirque shows, which are staged in the troupe’s theater in the West Side neighborhood of Disney Springs. The meals are set at $45 or $65, depending on the eatery, which does not include the price of show tickets.

“Drawn to Life,” which builds a story around Disney animation, debuted at Disney Springs in November. The show includes Cirque’s trademark acrobatics, dance, aerial maneuvers and unique performances such as unicyclists representing the Blue Fairy of “Pinocchio.” It replaced “La Nouba,” which closed Dec. 31, 2017.
