I came in off the 5 freeway and it seemed to be a lot less backed up than the 405. I would get their early however, people who came in after me said that they waited in the lots for over an hour!

Food is very expensive and beers are over $17 each! $14 for domestic. The food is also not very appetizing. Eat and drink before you come!

We went with our grandchildren. They loved it too because they were so famililar with the Pixar movies. Thanks to Goldstar we had wonderful seats because my husband is handicapped.
