CIRQUE DU SOLEIL BOU­TIQUE

WDW Magazine - - Contents - BY JEREMY LEIGHTENBERG

Cirque du Soleil La Nouba is such a mar­velous spec­ta­cle that un­til you truly ex­pe­ri­ence it, words can­not re­ally de­scribe it. It is true that this amaz­ing show is go­ing away at the end of the year, but you still have a chance to head to Dis­ney Springs, take it in, and stop by the Cirque du Soleil Bou­tique. Just look for the Cirque Tent.

Lo­cated in the West Side of Dis­ney Springs, you can pretty much see the Cirque du Soleil tent from any­where in Dis­ney Springs. The Bou­tique is lo­cated right next to the ticket win­dow, near the en­trance to the the­ater. Some­times, it can get rather loud around here thanks to the House of Blues, but en­joy the am­biance of the area of the West Side. While you are in Dis­ney Springs, be sure to check out one of their fun new eater­ies that have opened in re­cent years. You’re sure to find some­thing to sub­due those Dis­ney crav­ings with great food be­fore you take in La Nouba.

My first ex­pe­ri­ence at the Cirque du Soleil Bou­tique came back in 2012 dur­ing our first trip to Walt Dis­ney World. Back then, you could walk in and find a lit­tle bit of Dis­ney, mixed in with a lit­tle bit of Cirque mem­o­ra­bilia. We found a pretty cute t-shirt for my daugh­ter, and I found a 2012 WDW base­ball, and we left with an over­all good feel­ing about the bou­tique, think­ing, “this would be a good stop on our next trip.”

We found the Cirque du Soleil Bou­tique to be a great lit­tle store to stop in back in 2012. On our most re­cent stop, we de­cided to check it out again to see what kind of new

trea­sures we may be able to get. I wouldn’t con­sider this store a “must do” for Dis­ney Mer­chan­dise though. It has since trans­formed to solely a Cirque Du Soleil mem­o­ra­bilia store it seems, tak­ing away the an­tic­i­pa­tion I had built up for years. Ok, well maybe not years, but it was still a cool store! Be warned, if tak­ing Dis­ney Trans­porta­tion to Dis­ney Springs, it is on the op­po­site end of The Mar­ketplace, mak­ing for one heck of a walk. Uti­lize the nearby boat op­tions. It’s nice and re­lax­ing. You may need the boat ride af­ter you eat that big meal.

Some of the items lo­cated in here are quite unique. With some good qual­ity items, take your time walk­ing around to see what they have to of­fer. You may find your­self want­ing to buy a mask from La Nouba, or maybe a new hand­bag, or be even more in­ter­ested in tak­ing in the show. But hurry, af­ter De­cem­ber 31st, you will find your­self out of luck!
