The tour was very informative, sometimes slightly too much information for what I was looking for but you can easily skip sections if it is not of interest to you! If you decide not to do the audio tour... More

The orchestra is incredible, the acoustics are amazing, and the building is a destination. There's a great garden that can be accessed from the street, and during the day you can tour the building with a free audio guide narrated by John Lithgow.

Frank Gehry's unique and quirky architecture aside, this hall has THE best acoustics of anywhere in the world. It elevates any performance to a level unknown. It is especially wonderful to perform here.

If your here in Los Angeles, you need to see and visit the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The amazing architecture brings you into the future. Once you walk inside you will be impressed with decor and the acoustics. It is a must experience attraction if your into experiencing the Symphony.

I've been to WDCH several times since it opened; each time it's felt like an Occasion. It's a tremendous, inspiring space, and the LA Philharmonic is a world-class orchestra. I look forward to visiting when other ensembles are playing Disney Hall, but regardless of the artist, this is a must-do for a certain type of traveler. If that's you, you... More

It's better to see the Walt Disney Concert Hall in person. It shows the masterpiece of its architecture and design. It has a clean, modern feel and look.

And what a house it is! Curving walls give this venue a 'Secret Places' kind of feel. The acoustics are magnificent and perfect.

The architecture is so amazing that you will spend the entire day taking picture of various angles and trying to catch your reflection jumping. It never gets old. Please go and see a concert and thank me later.

This buildings architecture is amazing, definitely worth a look. The pictures do not do it justice. The sun shining on it makes it very bright.

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
