Best Gift Shop: Cirque du Soleil gift shop
CIRQUE DU SOLEIL BOUTIQUE
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!
