PHOTOS, VIDEO: 6-Story-Tall “Harmonious” Centerpiece Ring Arrives on World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT
The new EPCOT nighttime spectacular “Harmonious” is a tribute to the power of story and song that unite us, leveraging music and visuals from across Disney and artists around the world. The centerpiece barge for “Harmonious” has made its way onto the World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT — and we have additional details on the show.
Yesterday, we reported a portion of the centerpiece barge has been added to the other barges out on the lagoon. Now, this iconic platform that houses the ring is structurally complete.
As one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever produced by Walt Disney Imagineers, the show’s five floating platforms are in preparation to take centerstage place on World Showcase Lagoon. Positioned like a compass, the five platforms house the primary show equipment for “Harmonious” with the barge housing the ring in the center.
This platform holds an impressive six-story-tall ring structure that will be the centerpiece of this new show on World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT. This is a show on a scale unlike anything we have achieved before.
This centerpiece ring will support a high-density water curtain, moving lights, and fountains in a circular form that will symbolize EPCOT’s story of global connection through the reach of Disney music for all guests to enjoy while visiting the theme park.
Disney Live Entertainment technical designers across the country have been programming various elements of the show, from media and fountains to lighting and pyrotechnics, working in a completely virtual environment. The music producers at Walt Disney Imagineering have been remotely directing recording sessions with an incredibly diverse array of musical artists, performing in studios around the world.
Work on Harmonious is still in the early stages of development and has more finishing details to come before it debuts later this year.
