PHOTOS - How crews reach the top of the Harmonious icon barge

The six story tall icon barge that takes centerstage in the upcoming Harmonious show presents its own challenges when it comes to maintenance and repair.

Although most of the hardware on the barge will be rated for long-life, there will undoubtedly be occasions when maintenance needs will mean access to the top of the barge is required. 

We caught a look at the service barge in action today, along with the high reach lift boom that sits on the platform.

When not in use, the barge is currently being stored alongside the American Gardens Theatre where the old IllumiNations Earth barge was often docked.

It's legit in that it was previewed at Destination D in 2018. But all things are subject to change. Who knows?

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.

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