Question Cirque de Soleil - to do or not?

My boyfriend and I are going to be in WDW in January and are trying to decide whether or not to buy tickets for La Nouba- we are a couple in our mid to late twenties. Do people enjoy it? Is it something more for children than adults - where is the best place to sit? (if we can get seats)

We have seen LaNouba twice. We took our whole family to see it, ranging in age from 9 years old to 80. Several 20 something. The amazing thing is that I think everyone loved it equally, no matter the age. We think it is the most wonderful live show we have ever seen. It is hard to describe but the music (live), costumes, and ohhhhhhh what the human body is capable of. it is just wonderful. At first I thought that it was too expensive. After the show, I wanted to give the performers more $, I was so excited at what they did. Well worth it. Just in case you're not sure what I think, we loved it!
Have a great time.

No question. Go!!

Here is a seating chart. There is a lot of action up high so getting too close will keep you looking up all the time. There is also action in the walkway between the 100 sections and the 200 sections. I've always liked the lower seats in 203, 204 or 205 but there really isn't a bad seat in the house.

If you haven't seen LaNouba, it's a definite *don't miss*! Once you see it, you'll be eager to spend the money to see it again on a future trip. It's incredible - impossible to accurately describe.

IMHO you will love La Nouba. My kids (early to mid twenties) requested that we see it again after about a year on our next visit to WDW. They loved it.
Order your seats ASAP. They are sold from the best seats to the worst but there are very few bad seats.

Everyone in our group loved Cirque. There was a 6 year old, a 24 year old and two 50's. All of us loved it.

OMG, go!!

my bf and i are in our mid twenties as well, and i personally think La Nouba is more for adults than for children. (not that it is not children friendly, but the whole presentation is just more elegant)

it is a wonderful show, they really know how to use decor, music, and lighting to make the presentation amazing.

Thumbs up

Definitely GO!!! My wife and I have seen this one and Mystere (sp?) at Treasure Island in Vegas (as well as the ones they show on Bravo network). Definitely a unique experience.

Also, the theater at WDW is great. 99% of the seats have great views.

Seats are assigned by the computer, so you get what you get (unless someone knows a way around this). We had front row center and it turned out to be great!!

My DH and I went on our honeymoon last year and we loved it (we're 23 & 25)! My DH had the same thoughts that you do -- is this for kids? Once the show started, he was amazed! I think this a must see and you can definitely make a romantic night out of it with dinner before/after the show.

Wink Don't miss it

Although my wife and I cancelled our reservations at WDW a couple of weeks ago (we were suppose to fly out from Charlotte, NC on the 11th) We ended up just getting in the car and driving in a Southerly direction. The only reservation that we didn't cancel was CdS, and we made sure that we were in Downtown Disney on the 15th to see it. We weren't disappointed. It was the second time that we've seen it and it was just as enjoyable this time as it was the first. It is one of the few shows that I have seen, of any type, that I would rate as truly spectacular. How do people do some of these things?

I have seats in section 204 which seems like a good section to be in but I'm in row HH nearly all the way in the back even tho I'm not blind and I wear glasses, I still find myself taking binnoculars to events like this and wondered if I'd be the only one?
