Hollywood Apple Store

There’s a large, new Apple Store being constructed near the El Capitan Theatre. With WALL•E playing in that theater this summer, that’s Disney-Pixar-Apple synergy going on! And with the Jimmy Kimmel Show broadcast from a studio right next to the El Capitan Theatre, add ABC-TV synergy to the mix as well!

Hollywood parking

The Hollywood and Highland Center’s parking garage is right across the street from Disney’s El Capitan Theatre and the ice cream parlor. We used our iPhones to make note of where we parked our rental car. Hey, look! Even the license plate is Disney-themed, with “ABC” on it! 😉

Driving to Disneyland

We saw many billboards including this one featuring Prince Caspian promoting the Narnia sequel.

Driving to Hollywood

It’s 2 fer time at Disneyland! We got 2 days free admission to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure by buying 3 days of tickets. That promotion isn’t still going on now that it is summer, but it sure helped us save money during Easter week.

Driving to Hollywood

Michael Broggie was even kind enough to escort us to the correct exit we needed to take to get to Hollywood from the park, as well as giving us complete directions! He is such a nice man.

That’s the Disney Channel building in the middle of the picture. We’re following Michael’s van on the right as he shows us the correct exit. The route we took after getting off the freeway had us going on a street through a mountain pass that years ago was used by stage coaches!

Through the years we’ll all be friends, wherever we may be.

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.
