PHOTO - Harmonious water fountain testing underway at EPCOT

Mar 05, 2021 in "Harmonious"

Posted: Friday March 5, 2021 9:32am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Crews at EPCOT were busy earlier this morning testing the fountain effect on one of the Harmonious show platform barges in World Showcase Lagoon.

This image, captured by Brooke Geiger McDonald on Twitter shows one of the fin shaped barges delivering some impressive height from its onboard fountain nozzles.

Looking at the image closely, you can see the 6 story central icon ring barge to its right, and the fountain appears to be higher than that.

See the original tweet for video of the fountain in action.

The fountains will be used during the main nighttime show, and during the daytime to disguise the show platforms.

Disney is yet to announce an opening date, but hopes remain for an opening by the Walt Disney World 50th on October 1 2021.

I believe ahead of both the 2017 and 2019 D23 Expos I said to the friend that was with me, "Don't up Epcot, Don't up Epcot". I had been saying the park was dead well before this point, but the removal of Illuminations was the final nail in the coffin for me. I will now vehemently argue with anyone that says it's a good park.

Ya it really does look like the screen is showing a fountain and I kind of hope it is. These look horrible so adding this will only be worse which makes it funnier I an odd/horrible way.

I was just looking at the daytime fountain concept art again, I know it’s just concept art but it does almost look like background screen goes all the way to the bottom of the 4 barges as well as the bottom half of the center barge. I wonder if they might add separate led screens to the bottom half of each barge?

A statement I couldn't agree more with. "This park is dead"

The screens should play @marni1971's vids throughout the day.

Yeah, I hear that guy doesn't like them. I hear he's also not a fan of that video continuing to be reuploaded 🤣

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?

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.
