The Pieces Are Falling Into Place For EPCOT’s ‘HarmonioUS’
Though Harmonious, EPCOT’s new nighttime spectacular has had massive setbacks as a result of the lengthy COVID-19 theme park closures, it looks like the project may be inching ever closer to completion.
For those unfamiliar, HarmonioUS promises to be one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever offered at a Disney theme park. Previously Disney described it as, “a beautifully crafted dreamscape of Disney music and images reimagined by diverse cultural musicians and artists from around the world.”
The overarching theme to HarmonioUS is centered around the transformative power of music and the way that it inspires and unites us.
Back in January and February, we shared some images of set pieces being moved into the Lagoon area of the World Showcase which is where HarmonioUS will take place but since reopening in July things have relatively quite regarding the production. However, we do have hope based on an image shared by bioreconstruct.

As you can see from the aerial shot, the tweet shows an image of seven barges being brought into place for the new production. Though little about the production has been revealed, we do know that the barges will have screens that will project images central to the storyline of the production.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the barges. Here’s an video shared back in February before the COVID-19 shutdown. Let’s take a look:
As you can see from the video above, guests can expect massive floating set pieces to play a pivotal role in the show including custom-built LED displays as well as choreographed fountains, lasers, lights and of course fireworks!
