El Capitan

We got to see Bolt at the El Capitan. It was my first time experiencing the theater and it definitely made me feel like a kid again. 

While waiting for the show to begin, Rob Richards plays the pipe organ. Apparently he makes  a boatload of money  for doing this. Must be nice. 

Every movie begins with a live show. Confession: I let out an audible squeal every time I see any Disney character shake their groove thing. It's an uncontrollable instinctive response. This happens in every live-show context. Disneyland parades, broadway shows, whatever. They shake, I squeal.

What didn't make me feel like a kid were the other kids in the audience. I did not realize that children like to talk through entire movies. The entire movie. There was not a single moment of silence for the full 90 minutes. Since I was on their turf, I kept the dirty looks to myself. Watching the show for free also helped calm my nerves. 

I really, really liked this movie. But that's because I'm a huge ball of cheese.

El Capitan is the most fun place to see a Disney movie for a kid. Or a Jane. ;)

i want to see this movie too, although that's probably not shocking.

the el capitan is so much fun! we saw "lilo & stitch" and one of the pirates movies there.

Hee. I don't think I'll ever be able to sit through that. Children give me headaches.
