How to Watch Rogers The Musical at Disneyland: Virtual Queue Tips

Rogers: The Musical is a 35-minute one-act live musical at the Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure. It stars Steve Rogers and many of his Avenger friends, singing and dancing on stage as seen on Hawkeye on Disney+. Here’s how you can watch Rogers: The Musical at Disney California Adventure plus what you need to do to plan. Don’t make the mistakes I made. 

How to Watch Rogers the Musical

How to Watch Rogers: The Musical at Disneyland

There are three ways you can watch Rogers the Musical at the Hyperion Theater – by buying a premium package, by joining a virtual queue, or by using the standby queue. 

Here’s how you can

Rogers: The Musical Premium Package

What is included in the Rogers The Musical Premium Viewing Experience?

For $29 per person, you’ll receive:

  • Reserved seating in an exclusive lounge are in front of Stage 12 
  • A Rogers: The Musical Souvenir popcorn bucket with red, white, and blue popcorn, and a bottled soda
  • First access to the theater in order to select seats for Rogers the Musical

It’s the best shot you have to get front row seating if that’s important to you. Also, you may want to skip the lounge and head straight to the line if you want the best seats.

To purchase the Rogers: The Musical Premium Package head to Stage 12, between Studio Catering Co. and Hollywood Lounge in Hollywood Land. It’s by Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! Your entire party must be present to purchase the package. You can also select which showtime you are purchasing as long as it’s not sold out. 

The Premium Package will be available until it’s sold out for the day or until 90 minutes before the last show. Opening day, the Rogers: The Musical premium packages within an hour of park opening. However, since then, the demand hasn’t been quite as high and there have been packages available later in the day.

Rogers: The Musical Virtual Queue

If you don’t want to pay extra to watch Rogers: The Musical, you can join the virtual queue through the Disneyland app. You have to be inside Disney California Adventure Park to join the queue at 10:30 a.m. PT to get seats for the first two showtimes of the day. There is another virtual queue that opens at 2:30 p.m. PT for the last showtimes of the day. 

Virtual Queues at Disney can fill up quickly and usually in seconds. You can see my best virtual queue tips for TRON Lightcycle Run and Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind in Disney world. 

To join the Rogers: The Musical Virtual Queue:

  • Open the Disneyland app BEFORE 10:30 AM
  • Select “Virtual Queues” from the homepage
  • Make sure Rogers: The Musical is selected
  • Confirm your party is correct
  • At 10:30 AM, click Join Virtual Queue, then click it again. 
  • Receive Your Rogers The Musical Showtime

If a Guest gets into a virtual queue, they will not be able to choose their showtime and are assigned one. If you want the earlier showtimes, you will have to be in the park to get a virtual queue and so make sure your park reservation is for California Adventure as you can’t park hop until 11:00 a.m. PT.

If you want a better seat, we recommend arriving at least 45 minutes before your showtime for Rogers: The Musical. However, you will be waiting outside until about 15 minutes before showtime, so keep that in mind if it’s a hot day.

Rogers the Musical at Disneyland and How to Watch

Rogers The Musical Standby Line

Guests may be able to watch Rogers: The Musical via a standby queue several times a day on a first-come, first-served basis, if capacity allows. You are not guaranteed a seat in the standby line and you can arrive up to an hour prior to showtime. 

However, when chatting with a Cast Member at Rogers The Musical, he said so far, most everyone has gotten in via standby if they wanted to see the show, and they haven’t had to turn many people away. Crowds may be heavier on the weekends.

You can also grab some Disneyland snacks to munch on while you wait in line.

When Can You Watch Rogers the Musical at Disneyland?

Rogers: The Musical debuted on June 30, 2023 and will have a limited engagement. Rogers: The Musical is set to close August 30, 2023. Showtimes for Rogers the Musical are only Tuesdays through Saturdays. There are no showtimes on Sundays or Mondays. 

Typically showtimes for Rogers the Musical are at 12:30 pm, 2 pm, 4 pm, and 5:30 pm. However, they are subject to change.

Rogers the Musical tip: Disney recommends checking their Entertainment Schedule or the Disneyland app for dates and showtimes. Anything can happen to cancel Rogers the Musical for the day like a special event or cast members being sick. There are only so many dancing Nick Furys available. 

And sometimes they’ll update the app last minute. For example, I planned a trip to come see Rogers the Musical for my Anniversary. There was no indication that the show would be dark on July 13, 2023. However, when I showed up to Disney California Adventure that day, in the app, it said no showtimes available. I went to find out if it was true, and it was. Due to an event, Rogers the Musical was closed from July 13, 14, and 15. Plus the regular dark days of Monday and Tuesday.

It was a total bummer and had they updated the app sooner, I would have tried to make accommodations. So just be aware and check the app ahead of time.

The PhotoPass Photographer did feel really bad for me and had me make this pose in front of the theater. He made me smile after some disappointment.

How Long is Rogers: The Musical?

Rogers: The Musical is 35 minutes long and features 5 new songs. 

Some of the songs in Rogers: The Musical include “U-S Opening Night,” “Save the City,” “Star-Spangled Man,” “I Want You,” “What You Missed, “Just One Dance,” and “End of the Line.”

Is Rogers: The Musical a Real Broadway Musical? 

Rogers: The Musical started as a fictional Broadway musical during the Marvel show Hawkeye on Disney+. However, during D23, they showed a sneak peek of the performance of “Save the City” with the Avengers announcing the show was coming to the Hyperion Theater. 

Now Rogers: The Musical has been turned into a live show at Disneyland Resort for guests to enjoy! And it has plenty of Broadway roots from composers, writers, and performers.

I’m not going to take credit, but when I watched Hawkeye, I did manifest to the universe that Rogers:The Musical would come to the Hyperion Theater. After all, they had Aladdin and Frozen at the Hyperion, why not tell the story of everyone’s hero from Brooklyn?
