If you park underground at the stadium, leave your heavy coats in the vehicle. There was a slight breeze passing the upper level entrance for about 5 seconds going in and going out to elevator and that is all! That is a perk to the $30 lower level parking! 2 pretzels and nacho and Large soda was $35.00! Eat heavy beforehand.

There's plenty of parking nearby so don't feel like you have to park at the Verizon Center. Same goes for food. Eat a snack before you get there and then get a meal after the show on 7th St. or F St.

Had a great seat. I was one of only two unaccompanied adults (at least that I saw) but hey, I really liked the movie. The dragons were terrific as were many of the projections. The actors did their best but the script needs work. The children in...continued
