Traffic is heavy in Hollywood, so I did appreciate the Traffic Officers directing traffic.

Parking is available in the Hollywood/Highland lot - theater validates ($2 for 4 hours) but it's $1 for every additional 15 minutes after, so maybe Uber if you were planning on going to dinner or shopping too.

The weather was cool. I wore a sweater, because the theater is a little chilly (great when there's a ton of people seeing the film but we had a small crowd) .

1. 110 North to 101 North 2. Exit Cahuenga-LEFT 3. RIGHT on Franklin 4. LEFT on Highland (Highland curves to the left) 5. Immediately after you make that left on Highland, you should see: Johnny Grant Way- turn right (it will look like you are pulling in a HoTEL but drive in to park underground and then follow the signs to walk to the El Capitan.)

Park at Hollywood and Highland parking structure and partial validation for 4 hours is offered. (final cost about $8). OR if you live near a metro station, take the red line and it comes out right across the street.

The parking across the street is the way to go. It is about a block from the theater, but you can also have your parking validated and only pay 1/2 the cost. The way to go!!

Use the El Capitan parking on Highland. When you validate it's only $2 for 4hours. I used the valet service and it was only $10 when validated. I didn't want to get lost.

The weather was warm. I wore A maxi skirt and thin bolero I was in the colors of Queen Elsa with rhinestone costume jewelry My daughter had on her Princess Sofia the First dress from the Disney store with matching shoes and tiara. I brought a tiara but forgot to put it on. Some Mother's had a tiara pot crown. Slot of parents wore jeans, flip flops etc. It's whatever you and your daughter make of it. After all its memories that you create and she will never forget..

Arrive very early to secure a spot in line (which starts around the corner from the theater), or you're liable to end up in a front row seat and a sore neck.

Eat at Hard Rock Cafe. May seem a little pricey but all their food is delicious and the servings are big, so you can even share if you are not a super big eater.
