A Guide to Marvel's Rogers: The Musical at Disneyland Resort

The Broadway show that fictional critics called a "super-powered sensation" and "an all-American musical for an all-American hero" is becoming a reality at the Disneyland Resort. In February, Disney Parks announced Rogers: The Musical — inspired by an Avengers musical number in Marvel Studios' Hawkeye TV series — would hit the Hyperion Theater stage at Disney California Adventure Park this summer. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be able to marvel at the all-new, one-act live theater production for a limited time when Rogers: The Musical begins its special engagement on June 30th. 

Below, find out everything you need to know about how to watch Rogers: The Musical

Rogers: The Musical, Explained

In the "Never Meet Your Heroes" episode of Marvel's Hawkeye, Avengers archer Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) attends the Broadway production Rogers: The Musical. The superhero spectacle is a musical interpretation of the life of World War II Super Soldier and man out of time Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), the first Captain America, who assembled alongside Earth's mightiest heroes in 2012's The Avengers.

Featuring the musical number "Save the City" about the Battle of New York, the catchy and deliberately campy Broadway spoof was written by real-life songwriting duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray, Smash, Mary Poppins Returns). Viewers who stayed tuned for the Hawkeye finale's post-credits scene saw the full (fictional) performance of "Save the City," which Marvel released as a single and later opened Marvel's panel presentation at Disney's D23 Expo in September.

The musical will take the audience on a journey from Steve's humble beginnings during World War II to becoming Captain America, leading the Avengers and beyond. It's a classic tale of heroes, time travel, and romance, oh ... and Nick Fury sings!"

How to Watch Rogers: The Musical

Guests with a ticket and theme park reservation for Disney California Adventure Park can access viewing areas for Rogers: The Musical through a virtual queue system on the Disneyland app, which is not required — but is recommended. Should the virtual queue reach capacity, guests can check in at the Hyperion Theater in Hollywood Land before showtime for walk-up viewing options. 

Rogers: The Musical Virtual Queue, Explained

Here's how the virtual queue works, accessible through the free Disneyland app:

  • Every day that Rogers: The Musical is performing, distribution for the virtual queue will begin at 10:30 AM Pacific Time for the first two showtimes of the day and at 2:00 PM Pacific Time for the remaining afternoon showtimes.
  • If a guests gets into a virtual queue, they will not be able to choose which showtime they would like to have. Instead, they will be automatically given one.
  • There is limited capacity for each show. After attempting to join the virtual queue, guests will be directed to a screen which shows whether or not they are added to the queue.
  • Once a guests joins the virtual queue, they will be called back to the Hyperion Theater when the physical queue is ready to open, approximately 30 to 45 minutes before showtime.
  • To access the virtual queue, guests must have entered Disney California Adventure Park with a one-park ticket or Park Hopper ticket, or Disneyland Park with a Park Hopper ticket.
