Tips for Families

Plan your trip around the on-sale/buying/showtimes. I watched both kids while the hubby did the show but had to be in line so early it took more than an hour to buy tickets before sold out, waiting in line 20 minutes early and then watching the 25 minute show.

Tips for Families

Arrive early and try to avoid weekends if possible when the parking lot is packed and it can be hard to find a space for your car. Also, check in advance if there are concerts happening at the nearby Greek Theatre. This impacts traffic as well.

Tips for Families

This is a free attraction that should be on everyone's must see list in LA. Try to visit later in the evening to avoid crowds and direct exposure to sun.
