I am so excited that another Cirque du Soleil show is debuting in Tampa! We had such an amazing time at Cirque du Soleil VOLTA in 2018! I think Cirque du Soleil on ice will be an amazing show and we cannot wait to see AXEL this fall!!
Have you seen a Cirque du Soleil show before? Which one(s)? Let me know in the comments! VOLTA was my first in person but I’ve seen several on video. Aaron and my dad saw La Nouba years ago. I am looking forward to the 2020 debut of the new show at Disney Springs.
