Habana restaurant is a fantastic little dinner spot about a mile away. It's in the LAB anti-mall in Costa Mesa. Parking sucks there, but valet is only $3. The venue itself has movie theater style snacks.

The weather was cool outside but it was warm inside the tent. I wore a dress with tights and boots - MOST people did dress up casual nice for the event. .

Someone else posted that they were doing bag checks, but that didn't happen for us. Get there early if you want to take photos with backdrops and props without having too long of a line.

Once you're inside the seating area, there are booster seats for the kids available in the back of the tent; just head up the stairs and they're stacked at the rear railing.

Park across the street and walk to tent if you don't want to pay the $10 for parking.

The weather was cool. I wore a sweater because it can be a bit chilly in the tent.

Bring binoculars if you are in the back section so that you can see the makeup up close. Arrive a half hour before the show starts so you can watch the entertainers doing the preshow.

They have bag screenings, so don't bring cameras or they'll send you back to your car!

It is in a tent outdoors, so bring a jacket if you get cold.
