Going to see WALL•E at the El Capitan Theatre

We set off Friday morning from the Disneyland Hotel to see WALL•E at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles and do sightseeing in the area, too.

There’s a billboard promoting the new Toy Story Midway Mania attraction at Disney’s California Adventure.

…and another one.

A smoggy skyline.

Traffic was heavier than we expected, based on what we had during Easter week!

There’s the exit for the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles. If we hadn’t gotten a late start that morning — and if the traffic hadn’t been so heavy — we would have gone to see it.

Michael took this shot from the back seat. He didn’t get much of a view ahead of him!

The famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine

The “Hollywood” sign can be seen off in the distance looking across the street from the Kodak Theatre, near Disney’s El Capitan Theatre. (Click this picture or any of them to see them larger.)

The Kodak Theatre complex is across the street from the El Capitan Theatre and also includes a shopping mall and underground parking garage, the best place to park when going to see movie in the El Cap — and that’s where we parked.

We took a picture of a nearby landmark to help us find the rented SUV after we were through.

A giant WALL•E atop the El Capitan marquee was the first thing we saw before crossing the street after parking.

Here’s another view of it, taken as we were leaving after the movie. Apparently a TV interview was being done there.

In the next blog entry we’ll cross the street and be right outside the El Capitan Theatre, then go in!

About the Disney Echo

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

The Disney Echo at DisneyEcho.emuck.com 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.
