Time Out says

Yearning to relive your childhood and indulge in a Disney flick? El Capitan's your spot—the lavish 1926-built theater screens classics like Cinderella, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Finding Nemo, as well as first-run movies from the Disney companies, including Pixar and Marvel. Tickets are indeed pricier than your run-of-the-mill cinema, but then again, where else do you get to see a 2,500-pipe organ be played before the show?

If you're looking to brush up on some Hollywood history and peek your head in, there are two tours offered of El Capitan. The 30-minute-long Disney Movie Palace & Backstage Tour ($15, 8:30am) takes you into the dressing rooms, behind the curtain and, of course, inside the actual theater auditorium, including a close-up photo op with the grand Wurlitzer organ. The 15-minute Express Tour ($9) runs throughout the day, but because of scheduled screenings it likely won't take you inside the actual auditorium. We'd definitely lean toward the longer tour (walk-ups are welcome at both), but at the same time, no experience beats simply settling in for a movie.

    It’s pretty weird to remember that, during its leaner years, Disney used to recycle animated movies to save a few bucks. So Baloo from The Jungle Book magically became Little John in Robin Hood with some minor sleight-of-hand from the toiling arti...
