The third barge that makes up the central icon show platform for Harmonious is now in position in World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT.

Installed overnight Saturday into Sunday, the third barge is comprised of 2 more articulating arms that will be provide lighting effects for the show.

Crews are using the service barge to work on the structure as it is tied into the existing main central ring barge.

The side-on view shows both sets of arms, one set on the northern side facing Spaceship Earth, and the other set on the south side facing the American Adventure.

All that remains to be installed in terms of major hardware pieces are the two fin shaped barges, providing a mirror of the existing two located at Mexico and Canada.

An opening date for Harmonious is yet to be announced, but expectation continues that the show will be ready for Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary in October 2021.

Doesn’t answer your question, but I just realized despite not speaking any other language other then English, I can understand “How Far I’ll Go” in the other language they are singing it in.

Ive never heard the ending of this video. Is this really another version of we go on? Or is it not legit?

Kermit has joined the circus and is preparing to enter the Globe "Stargate of Death." 😆

I'm not even going to be going to Disney any time soon. I can't afford it. In fact I haven't been to Disney world in years. My point is that if you don't want to go, that's fine but it will not make a bit of difference to Disney. Frankly I think the same is true of voting in certain contexts but I don't really want to get into that.

It so weird that Epcot used to have a restaurant called "Stargate", now we've got an actual one. I wonder if Richard Dean Anderson or Kurt Russell will use it???

Unfortunately it will probably get great reviews for being a technical tour de force.

I'm actually excited for this show to be terrible and get poor reviews so that they remove these things.

Part two.

It hasn’t earned an internal nickname of “mistake on the lake” for its charming appearance and blending into the background.

This made me laugh out loud. Also the photo of the Kermit topiary really made me realize how bad these truly are.
