Disney Parks continue to look for new ways to integrate the various Marvel movies and superheroes into Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World.

Rogers: The Musical

The most significant efforts have been at Disney California Adventure Park, where Imagineers designed and created the Avengers Campus. The new area includes the rethemed Tower of Terror (don’t get me started…), a Spider-Man-themed dark ride, Ant-Man themed restaurant, and a new show featuring Captain America.

Located at the Hyperion Theater, which formerly hosted Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular, Toy Story: The Musical, and Frozen – Live at the Hyperion, the new show is Rogers: The Musical.

The stage production retells the story of Captain America (Steve Rogers) and his journey from a tiny army recruit to a world superhero. It also features other Marvel Avengers, such as Peggy Carter, Nick Fury, and other characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The new show is scheduled to only run for a limited engagement until the end of August. The new production features five all-new songs with music by Grammy-winning composer Christopher Lennertz and lyrics by Jordan Peterson, Christopher Lennertz, and Alex Karukas.

Sold Out Show

Disney Guests have the option to upgrade their experience for $29. Named the Premium Viewing Experience, Park Guests gain first access to the theater to select seats and priority access to have their picture taken by a Disney Photopass photographer. It also includes a souvenir popcorn bucket filled with red, white, and blue kettle corn and a bottled soft drink.

The new musical production debuted on June 30, and within 50 minutes, it sold out all of the Premium Viewing Experiences for all four showtimes. Marvel fans staying on Disneyland property were given priority to enter the theme Park early and purchase the experience.

It will be interesting to see if the premium experience will continue to sell out every day over the next two months. If so, perhaps Disneyland Resort will consider making the musical more of a permanent fixture as opposed to a limited time engagement.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
