'Harmonious' at EPCOT, one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for a Disney park, will debut October 1 2021 and we now have a first look at the finished show from inside the park.

Disney has just shared some new images of the completed show shot during a recent test.

According to Disney, 'Harmonious' will bring the globe together at World Showcase Lagoon in a celebration of Disney music that inspires people worldwide.

It's a grand, powerful tribute to the unifying power of story and song, embracing new technical magic that incorporates pyrotechnics, fountains, lighting and media in new ways. “Harmonious” will feature new interpretations of classic Disney songs, reimagined in more than a dozen languages by a diverse group of 240 artists from around the world.

Fireworks will return to EPCOT ahead of Harmonious, with an updated version of 'EPCOT Forever' launching on July 1 2021.

So I decided to watch HarmonioUS while playing the Illuminations soundtrack. Was a little strange but oddly enough a couple of the parts matched somewhat well?

It was insane. The theme park community on Roblox is one dedicated community. Haven't gotten that excited over a kid game in so long.

I saw that too. Tons of effort went into that and it came out great considering the limits of Roblox. The fact the arms move correctly is really neat.

Alright so I know most people here probably don't even know what Roblox is, but I just wanted to share this with anyone who's interested. A group called "WED Imagineering" recreated HarmonioUS in the game Roblox. Gotta say, was pretty impressive.

I've noticed that the Stargate projections don't break as often as they used to.

Seems like they do a lot of Disney shows MBA collaborated with Disney to produce these wonderfully magic moments from parks around the world. Projects range from castle projection shows from Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo and Disneyland to musical Broadway-style spectaculars on Disney Cruise Lines, water projection shows at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, California Adventure and Disneyland and much more.

Did somebody remember to cover up that little hole that would allow an explosion to take the whole thing down? I like SSE and, with its normal stoppages while riding, I don't want to become another victim of the Rebellion's aggressive and uncalled for attacks.

I believe the laser hits SSE. It shouldn't be a problem.

Are they broken or turned off? I know at DCA for World of Color, the higher lasers will get turned off during the show due to planes and stuff.
