Hi everyone –
The first of five barges/floating platforms that will be part of the upcoming nighttime Epcot spectacular “Harmonious” is now in position on World Showcase Lagoon. Disney says that it will “begin testing of its onboard show equipment” and that the platforms “will create a sparkling fountain, providing new energy to World Showcase during the daytime; after dark, they’ll become part of one of the largest nighttime shows ever created for a Disney park.” I took photos and video of the first platform today.
Here is our video:
Signage around World Showcase says, “Harmonious will be a stunning celebration of the global connection we all share – brought to life each night here on World Showcase Lagoon. By day, a dazzling fountain will sparkle. At night, iconic Disney music and images – reimagined by artists around the world – will inspire with the stories we share.”
And here are more photos from around World Showcase today. It was a gorgeous day and I have some photos of the Epcot Christmas tree here too.
“Harmonious” originally was set to debut in 2020. Disney said about it this year, “The show is a beautifully crafted dreamscape of Disney music and images, reimagined by diverse cultural musicians and artists from around the world. It’s a transformative experience, where we can discover how Disney music has the power to inspire and unite us all with the magic of possibility.”
We will continue to follow Epcot’s transformation that was delayed some as it does move forward.
