stainless steel curves of the building's exterior are incredible and different from every angle. The main auditorium of the concert hall is constructed of wood paneling that create curved, arena seating. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world and was a gift from the Disney family to the people of Los Angeles.

A beautiful venue to listen to classical music. Love walking around it before the show to find really cool hidden parts of the venue as well as the numerous artwork/wacky things in side. Going inside the actual hall, the music is vibrant, and wherever you sit, I think you get a great listen of the music. Wonderful stuff. Park underneath or Uber.

A true masterpiece. If you can, try and see a show here as well. You won't be disappointed.

This venue is beautiful. I've seen the symphony here a few times already. Acoustics are great. It's a Frank Ghery building so you know it's a beautiful designed establishment. There are stairs and paths that lead you toward the top of the building outside where you can see nice views of the city and the hills.

Beautiful building on the outside. I have not been inside but I hear it's just as grand. Going up the stairs on the side of the building, there is a small garden with a view and tables and chairs to chill.

Free tours available during the day which is cool if you can't get tickets to see a performance at night. Beautiful building inside and outside with the halls architecture. Cool garden and views overlooking the city from outside.

Beautiful, acoustically perfect concert hall. Worth checking out even if you're not a classical music enthusiast - they do building tours.

Designed by famous architect and (still alive and kicking) Los Angelean, Frank Gehry, this architectural masterpiece is worth a go-see even without an event taking place! However the LA Phil performs here and the place sounds as good as it looks—incredible acoustics and visuals you won't want to miss!!! If you have young children, take them to the VERY AFFORDABLE 'Toyota Youth Symphonies.' Music and dance often accompany the 45 minute weekend concerts with arts and crafts and other hands-on activities beforehand. Children under 12 will instantly fall in love with the arts here. Anyone over 12 will too!

Designed by Frank Gehry, Walt Disney Concert Hall has, along with the Hollywood Sign and the silhouette of City Hall, become a commonly recognized symbol of Los Angeles. Home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, it is one of the world's most acoustically sophisticated concert halls.

Whether visiting for a concert or simply for a tour, the building's perimeter should be explored. The Concert Hall's "backyard" has a small outdoor amphitheater, a fountain, a park and various plants all of which compliment the structure. In addition, views of downtown from different perimeter vantage points help make navigating the numerous outside staircases rewarding.

The design is strange, but the acoustics are incredible, no matter where you sit.

I haven't had a chance to see a concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall, but the architecture is quite impressive.

The incredible architecture of the Walt Disney Concert Hall was the perfect setting for a blissful Sunday afternoon. LA's philharmonic orchestra brought Beethoven to life - as I closed my eyes, I was transported to another time as the sweet melody of a 50 piece orchestra filled the air.

Classy and cool. This place is just as much work of art itself as the music being played in it.

Parking: I think there's a parking lot on site but I always use the cheaper lots nearby.

Quite an experience here as well. The Walt Disney Concern Hall showcases the best and most unbeatable theatrical shows from all over. The cafeteria is a must go place as well. Looking forward for the Christmas Week events :)

Walt Disney Concert Hall is no doubt a modern day L.A. Landmark.

The exterior design was entirely made of stainless steel. It look breathtaking and amazing. The downside of having completely cover with stainless steel is that it cause heat reflection, beware do not touch the steel during daytime. It could really burn your skin, the steel reflection result much higher heat temperature, there’s no sign anyway state this, they should really do it. Many tourist and visitor come here every day.

I still haven’t got change to visit or attend a concern here, but definite my bucket list to do.
