Second Harmonious show barge now in World Showcase Lagoon
Posted: Tuesday January 12, 2021 10:42am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The second Harmonious show platform barge was brought out into World Showcase overnight at EPCOT.

Despite poor weather today, crews are working on installing the new barge near to the Canada pavilion.

This is the second of what will ultimately be four perimeter barges, and one central barge.

Unlike previous EPCOT shows, the Harmonious hardware will remain permanently in the lagoon, somewhat disguised by daytime fountains.

Disney is yet to announce an opening date, but the show is expected to debut sometime in 2021. Click the gallery for more views from various points around World Showcase.

I wonder if having Harmonious begin 15 minutes before park closing is a strategic way to limit the number of people viewing it. It seems the show will have much more limited viewing angles due to the screens and other factors, so they could just be doing this to draw people away from it by providing alternatives.

True, not spectacular, but at least that gives you an option to get in line for something up to 15 minutes into the show which could mean an extra ride. It's not an extra hour, but at least it means you can still enjoy attractions while the show is going on which is something. With the length of some of the queues, I imagine this is more or less calculated so that people are still waiting and riding attractions too long after the show finishes.

IllumiNations used to start an hour before park closing. Oh well.

Its 15 mins before park closing?

As reported by WDWmagic, the show starting before park closing time is a positive development that I hope becomes permanent. At MK you always had the option of lower waits for the attractions and skipping the fireworks, so fantastic news if this will also now be an option at Epcot.

I don't think they thought it was a good idea, I think they had to just "go along" with it.

Well.. I mean I get the logic behind doing it.. at the same time though, it doesn’t solve the problem with the design & focus of the show.

I am aware that this may just be a 'test phase' to get the juices flowing correctly before turning up the water pressure, but.... How anyone thought this was a good idea is a bit perplexing. -

They just need to call the barges the new expansion to World Showcase. Look, it's Atlantis slowly leaking and sinking....slowly.

If that’s close the final product, I think it’s makes them more noticeable of how ugly they are sitting there. I give them until the opening, but it’s getting close.

It's hilarious.

I just can't get over how the daytime video looks like the barges all sprung small leaks.
