Third Harmonious Screen Barge Now in World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT
EPCOT’s new nighttime spectacular, Harmonious, is expected to debut sometime this year. Work seems to continue daily on the barges and the centerpiece ring that make up the focal point of the show. Today a third barge moved into its new home on World Showcase Lagoon alongside the others, leaving just one more before the “compass” is all in place.
The third screen barge (or “taco” as some call them) sits right in front of the Japan pavilion, blocking most of our view of the pavilion from across the lagoon.
The barges all angle in towards the center ring. The remaining barge will mirror the one that joined the lagoon today, just on the other side of the center ring.
The barges have lighting and water features that will be utilized in the show and the fountain feature will supposedly help hide the barges during the day.
The view from the Canada pavilion has the barges blocking most of the America Gardens Theater across the lagoon in the American Adventure pavilion.
The back of the barge can be seen from the Japan pavilion. Luckily there isn’t as much of a view to block from this side of the lagoon.
The concept art gives us a better look at how the barges will be used as both the focal point for the nighttime spectacular and as a fountain during the day.
