Make sure you do the free self-guided tour of this incredible Frank Gehry building! The audio is fabulous - succint and very interesting indeed. You will hear from the architect, the project manager, designers, the Disney family etc. etc. The views of the city from the roof garden are wonderful too and the garden is incredible. We were lucky that the auditorium was open on the day we visited :)
Lunch at the cafe was delicious and very reasonably priced too.
This was definitely a highlight of our trip!

While there are some tours, for the most part this is a working theater, and unless you are attending a concert - you won't see much. Outside makes for some great pictures.

Loved taking pics of this building. Did not go inside, but the outside is certainly a work of art by Frank Gehry.

The hall is a must see. The wood is spectacular. The sound is excellent anywhere your seat is. You can get really close to your concert by sitting behind the stage.

The building is absolutely gorgeous, Frank Gehry at his best. It is impossible to miss the silver nautical-themed edifice while driving South Grand Avenue in Bunker Hill. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the buildings that comprise the Los Angeles Music Center.

The concert hall acoustics, designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, are "perfect". Every seat in the hall is an excellent seat, but because of its perfect sound properties, if you are late, you will not be admitted into the hall, until an intermission. You may be seated outside in very comfortable leather sofas or chairs and watch the performance via monitors.

The building has but one enormous painting entitled "Water" which is complimentary to its theme. If you look carefully at the building, you will find what seem impossible angles, a whale or two, a maze, and lots of [abstract] sails. Use your imagination and come armed with a good camera when touring the Hall, but not during a performance, please.

This is Los Angeles, are you worried about parking? Don't be. The Hall has underground parking, and you have other possible options: a) a large parking lot on South Grand and West Second Street, b) the parking structure for the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and c) another large public parking on West 1st Street and Olive. All parking options listed are within a block of the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
