El Capitan Theatre and Disney Soda Fountain
I’ve really enjoyed sharing my experiences from the #IronMan3Event with all of you, and a lot of the reason, is that it’s been a joy reliving each of the parts of my trip over again as I edit images and write the posts!
A really fun and interesting portion of my time in LA was spent touring and learning more about the El Capitan Theatre, and also, having the opportunity to visit the Disney Soda Fountain and Studio Store!
Our tour began with a very special breakfast at the Disney Soda Fountain and Studio Store! Bloggers were served Mickey Mouse waffles, and wow, were they every sweet, fluffy, and delicious. It was a really great way to start the day, and a really unique experience.
We were then led upstairs to begin our tour of the famous El Capitan Theater. Did you know that the legendary El Capitan Theatre opened on May 3rd, 1926, as “Hollywood’s First Home of Spoken Drama?”
In 1989, The Walt Disney Company began a museum-quality restoration of the El Capitan. The theatre reopened in June, 1991, with the world premiere of Walt Disney Pictures’ “The Rocketeer.”
The El Capitan’s glamours history is apparent in every inch of this gorgeous Hollywood landmark, and I am still amazed that I had the opportunity to watch a blockbuster film premiere there! Isn’t it magical?
After our tour of the theatre, we headed back to the Disney Soda Fountain and Studio Store.
Disney’s Soda Fountain offers a truly charming, old-fashioned ice cream parlor experience, and you can also find a large selection of fun Disney merchandise in the studio store.
Oh, look! It’s the Disney Vault!
I adored having the chance to visit the El Capitan Theatre and Disney Soda Fountain, and I highly recommend these stops for anyone visiting Hollywood!

I received an expenses-paid trip to LA from Disney in exchange for my posts before, during, and after the #IronMan3Event. Opinions are genuine, and all mine.
