One performance I attended offered fresh baked cookies during intermission. Some events have a pre-show beer and wine open bar with cheese, crackers, fruit etc. Beautiful venue !LGreat view of the stage no matter where you sit. I only wish there... More

I went this weekend to Disney's Beauty and the Beast. This is the second time I have been to this venue. It is a gorgeous place. They have very friendly volunteers helping out. I would definitely recommend visiting here.

Remember being very surprised on entering. In a great way... More people should take advantage of exhibits there. It is my understanding that they also do things for the younger people.
