While visiting EPCOT earlier today, we spotted a flurry of activity on World Showcase Lagoon as crews continued to work on the singular barge installed on the water. As a reminder, there will be four LED screen barges, and a single circular water screen barge as part of the upcoming Harmonious nighttime spectacular likely coming to EPCOT in 2021.
Here’s a look at the work, which was taking place both on the barge and on the central electrical hub.
“Harmonious” will bring to World Showcase Lagoon an innovative toolkit of massive floating set pieces that house a variety of show effects, including custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, colorful lights, lasers, pyrotechnics and more.
The collective of the barges is referred to as the “compass”, with the center having a “great gravity screen” that is surrounded by four other barges that have giant LED screens as seen in the concept art below.
The show promises to be a beautifully crafted nighttime 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. You can catch an early glimpse of concepts for the show now by visiting Walt Disney Imagineering Presents the Epcot Experience, located in the Odyssey Events Pavilion.
Harmonious will debut October 1, 2021 at EPCOT.
