As we continue to inch towards the October 1 debut of Harmonious at EPCOT, Disney has shared a new look at the upcoming nighttime spectacular as part of some overnight testing that has occurred recently.
First, here’s a look at the previously released images from testing.
Now, here’s a look at some more testing from the north side of World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT. While we don’t necessarily get to see any new imagery on the LED barges, we do get a look at what an “ideal” view of the show might look like. As you can see below, the view is unobstructed and relatively centered.
Here’s a closer look at the LED screens and centerpiece barge.
“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.
