    How long of a walk is it from the Cirque de Soleil theater at Disney Springs to the Rainforest Cafe? We will be going to the 5:30pm show and I’m wondering what time I should make a dinner reservation for at Rainforest Cafe. Thank you!

    Hello Lee,

    Thanks for coming to see us here at planDisney!

    I'm happy for you that you'll be getting to see Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney. I am so looking forward to seeing this show, as we have always enjoyed the spectacular and thrilling Cirque du Soleil performances.

    The Cirque du Soleil performance venue is located at the West Side of Disney Springs, and the Rainforest Café is located less than a mile away at Disney Springs Marketplace. The way I'd describe it is that the Marketplace area is on the opposite end of Disney Springs from the West Side area. I'd say the walk is about a 15-minute walk. Of course, that can vary depending on whether you prefer more of a quick-step pace or more of a leisurely stroll. You can choose to walk along the Town Center street or take a path that's a bit more direct by walking through the Landing area of Disney Springs. You can get a good idea of the distance and walking route by looking at the interactive map on the Disney Springs website.

    Speaking of interactive maps, I always recommend using the My Disney Experience mobile app for its interactive maps and step-by-step directions. You can use the quick search feature (the magnifying glass in the app's main menu) and search for "Drawn to Life" or "Cirque du Soleil" to select and set your starting location.  You can then tap on the "Get Directions" feature and type in "Rainforest Café" to set Rainforest Café at Disney Springs Marketplace as your destination. It's helpful to know that there is also a Rainforest Café at Disney's Animal Kingdom, so you'll want to be sure to select the Disney Springs location.

    Lee, here's wishing you a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Enjoy the show!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
