If you are in to architecture make sure the Walt Disney Concert Hall is on your list. I was surprised at how much time I spent there, not at a performance, just wondering around the building itself. There is a great self-guided audio tour about the design and construction of the concert hall. Well worth taking. It was a nice... More

There is not much to say here. If you are looking at this you are probably going to go to something down there. A beautiful building and we all had a nice time in the worst seats in the house.

If you're in LA make sure you spend a couple of hours here. A stunning building with a superb audio tour to accompany you around the inside and outside of the Hall. Parking very near by and not too expensive-we paid $10 for unlimited parking after noon.

This is a fantastic place to see a show. The acoustics dazzle and the night is classy from head to toe. I know this is sacrilege, but I'd suggesting taking the subway to get there and ubering home.

If you like architecture, or even if you don't, go on the free tour of the concert hall. I went two years ago with a guide, and last week again using the audio recording narrated by John Lithgow. Both were excellent, in fact, using the hand held device means you can linger where you want. You can hear architect Frank... More

I could stand and look at the outside of the Disney Concert Hall all day long, but I would never go here for a concert again. The way it is built, with the seats going up at very steep incline is horribly uncomfortable. I felt like I was in a fishbowl. I have seen several concerts here from classical to... More

We have enjoyed going to the Walt Disney Concert Hall. When we go we usually stay at the Omni Hotel. It is walking distance to the concert hall. The exterior of the concert hall is very unique; its a place that many people love to photograph. When going in and seeing a concert, we find that the views from the... More

Not much of a theatre or orchestra kind of person but the architecture is simply amazing!! We got lucky as there were free self guided tours that day. If you get the chance take it. The organ on the back wall is just massive. The way this place is setup, sound must really travel nicely

Free! Beautiful beautiful building. Great audio tour that takes you all over the inside and outside. Courteous workers. Breathtaking garden. Great views of L.A. Not to be missed if you are a music or architecture fan
