The Walt Disney Concert Hall is really easy to be reached. The hint for visitors who plan to appreciate only the outside architecture, I recommend going on weekends due to parking availabity and traffic conditions.

Took the tour of the Disney center and the other venues in the Performing Arts Center (The Chandler, Taper and Ahamson). Walking through the buildings you see the art work and architecture and begin to appreciate the history of LA and how intertwined city development and the entertainment industry were. The Disney is beautiful inside and out and a truly... More

I went to visit the outside of the Walt Disney Concert Hall just to take in the architecture and try to find a hidden garden I had heard of. You can walk all around the exterior and take staircases into hidden nooks and crannies with great views of downtown LA. A small garden that's elevated above street level features lovely... More

This was an amazing Concert hall- absolutely beautiful on the inside. Saw the GMC of LA- wonderful. Sat way up in center balcony- very glad to have second row- very short railing to front row & very little space to walk- many people hunched over gripping it to get to there seats- unobstructed view was great

I love this building it is wonderful inside and out. During your time in LA you should def go visit and walk the grounds and even take a tour and see a show there. I love traveling around and catching different shows in all the different old and new venues around town. Also great location for pictures there. Great view... More

Go for the LA Phil. Go to see the "Dude." Go for the architecture. Listen to a preconcert lecture. Try to take pictures without getting caught!

This is an extraordinary building and well worth a visit. I attended a concert there, but you can also do a tour. The sound and sight lines were excellent. There are lifts and escalators, and the whole thing worked very efficiently. Not much choice in the way of food, but there is a restaurant and a sort of deli. UPHILL... More

Went for a Handel Messiah concert. The concert hall is small enough to feel you have good seats from most seats. The inside color scheme is warm wood. I love the organs. They remind me of french fries.

Even with a short amount of time available it is a very worth while visit to call into the Disney Concert hall. The architecture is inspired and I can only imagine how special it would be to attend a concert here. Make sure you see the garden before you go, and the gift shop is also extremely good.
