Firework barges on World Showcase Lagoon - February 4 2021
Posted: Thursday February 4, 2021 11:12am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

More hardware has arrived in World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT as work continues on preparing for the upcoming Harmonious nighttime show.

Two fireworks platforms are now in position either side of the large Mexico show platform barge for systems testing.

These smaller platforms typically provide some width to the shows, and use angled launchers to produce specific effects.

Ultimately there will be eight of these smaller platforms. Harmonious is expected to open in 2021, but no specific date has yet been announced.

Agreed, I think it will be a much improved end to an EPCOT day.

Finally got around to watching the EF testing video from the other night, and man what an improvement! I’m glad the finale has been restored (or should I say improved upon) from its original incarnation when the show debuted. No longer are the 2s and 4s reduced to 1s and 2s! Also the semi-finale in Magic Journeys in place of the multi-kites is amazing! Taking a page out of HEA with its Go the Distance’s mini-finale.

Harm will definitely be lit lol. And who knows if what we are seeing is actually all of the lighting. There is a lot on each barge.

I would expect Harmonious from Oct 1, although not yet announced of course.

We hopefully arrive 19th October (2 week stay), anyone think Harmonious will have started by then or will it still be Epcot Forever?

I also recall the Illuminations closing “we hope you enjoyed this evenings performance of illuminations. GE - we bring good things to life. Thank you and good evening” Along with the logo on the globe and GE inspired post show music. And then the park was often still open afterwards of course.

They did, actually. Back in the early 2000s, the announcements used to read "because GE brings good things to life, EPCOT invites you to join us for IllumiNations..."
