Heather Reilly, Cirque du Soleil Company Manager, provided some perspective on the partnership:

“Creating a show is always special, but it doesn’t reach its full potential until we share it with our guests. Now one year and nearly 500 performances later, the show has truly evolved into a one-of-a-kind experience that could only be delivered by a combination of Cirque du Soleil and Disney. Our cast, crew and guests have all been part of making that happen.”

Additionally, the original score, which is performed live, and the athletic abilities of the cast make this a show you won’t soon forget.

Here is a description of this show, according to Disney Parks Blog:

The family-friendly show tells the story of the love between a father and a daughter, drawing inspiration from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 100-year heritage of storytelling. The show celebrates iconic Disney stories and characters through innovative design, quintessential Cirque du Soleil acrobatic performances, dazzling choreography, and brand-new animation lovingly created by Disney Animation Studios artists.

Disney Parks Blog also adds:

The show’s storyline centers on an animator’s drawing desk, a magical pencil, an unfinished animation sketch, and an antagonist who resembles a crumpled piece of paper.
