Get there very early: free parking in Rose Bowl Lot K, but you still have a good walk to get to the entrance. There are some tables and chairs in the foyer part of the tent to enjoy some of the usual carnival/circus concessions available. But this production needs to hire a lot more staff: only two entrances to the venue, and each one only had one security person checking bags and one person scanning tickets (but two very long lines of ticketholders waiting to enter). Inside, there was only one register handling all the merchandise sales (another long line that took almost 30 minutes to get through maybe 20 customers). Really poor event management of the audience experience. (Also: bring your own empty tote bag if you might buy something or else you have to buy a $1 non-plastic bag there.)

Do NOT bring kids under 12 as they will be very bored.

Do not bring metal water bottles, totes, selfie sticks, or bags larger than a small wallet. Bring pre bought plastic water bottles for yourself if you don't want to be robbed inside with $7/ bottle

Arrive early so that you have time to park and walk. Getting out takes an hour so have drinks in your car for after

It is really tough to get an Uber out of the Rose Bowl. It’s a freaking nightmare. Either take the shuttle or park there. Trust me! I got stranded there with no Uber’s left.

Check the Rose Bowl website for details but they don't allow purses or bags-- or at least it's very limited and specific about what you can bring in.

Tailgate! We parked on the golf course, so it seemed like a picnic. Had a great little pre-party before the show.

You can pre-purchase parking online to make it a little easier.

We used a water bubbler near us as food and drink too expensive to buy inside stadium.

We used a water bubbler near our area! Too expensive to buy food or drinks there.
