Chapter 4: An Evening at the Walt Disney Studios Well one great thing about going to the El Capitan is that you wind up on their mailing list. And while L.A. is too far away for me to simply go to a movie down there, when you're on the El Capitan mailing list you find about what movies are showing there. And so one day in October 2009, I got something in the mail advertising the Ultimate Disney Experience. As part of the celebration of the return of hand drawn animation with The Princess and the Frog, Disney would be holding advance screenings of The Princess and the Frog at The Walt Disney Studios open to the public. So yes, once again I get to visit the Walt Disney Studios and see a new movie there. Since the dates worked wonderfully around my traditional December trip, I decided to extend it out a day this year and see the movie at the Studios. But what's even better is that I would get to see the studios at Christmas time. Decorations Just in case I get lost on the way to check in, these frog prints show me the way. Almost to the welcome center. Stay on target. Stay on target. Sadly, this trip will not include a visit to SQUIRREL!!!! Avast there, ye scurvy scum. . . A different statue from Narnia. I saw the Mr. Tumnus one during my first visit as well as the actual wardrobe. Up next: After the movie. . .
