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.

Also yeah lol. The 29th, 30th, 1st are all gonna be full of critical and lifelong Epcot and Illuminations: ROE fans lol. I'm sure many of them would be ready to set the whole park on fire if one wrong move is made in HarmonioUS (like an upbeat exit.) 😂

I feel like I somewhat share this sentiment with you but for the most part I don't. Wishes didn't have an upbeat end to it but it didn't need to because the emotions it carried along with it were good enough. For the World Showcase, a part of a theme park that was built off of the idea of real world themes and a firework show also half based on us, humanity. I feel like "Someday" might be one of the best song choices besides "We Go On". We Go On wasn't super upbeat but it didn't need to be. It was [part of a show that reflected and celebrated the real world. The real world isn't always upbeat. Sometimes, it's sad but it can create hope. We Go On didn't make us dance. It made us sit down, reflect, and look toward the future as one. Enchantment might have a more upbeat exit song which I am okay with! But as far as HarmonioUS goes, I personally don't think it'll have one and it doesn't need an upbeat exit. If I'm not left in tears after the show while reflecting on humanity, I don't want the show. That's just my take lol.

Why do they keep pushing and inserting Brave. Far more better options.

All of Orlando will be at the Magic Kingdom on the 29th..... The 29th is the 'final' showing of 'Happily Ever After'. Everyone will then move over to Epcot on the evening of the 30th to view 'Harmonius'. The days have just shifted slightly....in more ways then one. -

So I guess all of Orlando will be at Epcot on the 29th instead of the 2nd? 🤣

Nothing wrong with a non upbeat song. Just my own preference lol.

We Go On wasn't upbeat either and it's the best finale in the IllumiNations Series. Of course the upbeat part of ROE was right before We Go On so there's that.

Or “IASM” 🤣. In all fairness I know Epcot has never had a upbeat dance ish song before so why would they start now. And if they did it would only upset Epcot fans even more lol. Had hopes the exit song of Illuminate would’ve been brought over to along with the other scenes that some are saying are in DE. Oh well lol.

Like…”A Whole New World”?

Not saying “Someday” is a bad song but I would have preferred something more upbeat and fun rather than something on the serious and emotional side. Unfortunately DE sounds like it’ll be the same thing. Maybe the exit songs will be more upbeat.
