Expect more work in World Showcase Lagoon as new permit filed for Harmonious construction

Oct 19, 2020 in "Harmonious"

Disney has filed a new permit for more work on the Harmonious barge infrastructure in World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT.

The permit is for "Installation of anchors to provide additional mooring for center barge" and will be carried out by Fender Marine. (Thanks to @danlb_2000 on the WDWMAGIC Forums for spotting the permit).

Much like Reflections of Earth, Harmonious will make use of barges to power the video, water and pyrotechnic effects. All new barges are in the process of being built backstage, and considerable work has been needed in the lagoon to accommodate the new hardware.

Serious question- will this block views of the dreaded gravity building from much of World Showcase? I'm thinking in particular, the view from Japan that keeps coming up will be rectified in that respect.

I thought that was replaced by Iger and Chapek years ago with “achieve management bonuses”? 😉

Efficiency is one of the Disney Four Keys😉

Curious. They prepped the land to build this attraction. What do they do with the area after the barges are floated out into the lagoon till 2040 ( if you go by the timeline of the previous show ) ??

It seems that the fountains will be on all day... self-cleaning!!

Had the barges come out only at night and then gone back it would have been okay. This idea of leaving all show hardware out in the lagoon, I suspect is more a cost saving measure than anything else. I also suspect it's going to look horrible with bird poop on it (ask Universal about that)

Will be interesting to see if Harmonious affects HEAs popularity. Then again probably not, the “Stargate” certainly won’t top Cinderella’s Castle 😂.

So it’ll become the best ever firework show in WDW 2.0? ;)

More like Harmonious = Happily Ever After 2.0

Except that this one will be popular, further reinforcing in management the idea that IP is the Disney difference.

@marni1971 was the “WS Lagoon daytime fountain” always part of the plan?

At least those don't yell obscenities or vomit in the walkway. I'd take a tree or island any day.
