PHOTOS, VIDEO: Behind-The-Scenes Look at New “HarmonioUs” Show Barges Arriving at EPCOT
EPCOT is in the midst of a historic, multi-year transformation that includes a new nighttime spectacular titled “HarmonioUs”, which is set to debut later this year.
The Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Parks Live Entertainment teams recently passed a major milestone in the development of the show, with the delivery of several floating platforms that will provide a base for the technology used to create “HarmonioUs.”
There are five show barges in total, with four of them surrounding a central barge, each an “actor” within the show.
Here’s a look at one of the massive show barges being slowly hoisted into the backstage marina area.
“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 show is 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.
