PHOTOS - Divers in the World Showcase Lagoon ahead of overnight Harmonious pyro test

Divers in the World Showcase Lagoon

Divers were out in the World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT today ahead of an overnight test for Harmonious planned for this evening.

Disney has notified guests staying at the EPCOT resort area hotels to expect to hear pyro from inside EPCOT after park close up until midnight.

During the overnight test, we believe crews will be testing some early pyro effects to be used in the upcoming Harmonious show.

Despite COVID-19 and the pausing of numerous projects, development of Harmonious is continuing, although behind schedule. The expectation is that EPCOT Forever will return as EPCOT's nighttime show when permitted, to then be replaced by Harmonious sometime in 2021.

It’s a different department. Even then, I’m under the impression that a lot of entertainments feels resources are the moment are going to Harmonious.

With the pause button getting hit on Tron soon, is the same expected to happen to Harm? Whats keeping Harm alive? No light in sight yet of entertainment resuming.

The use of the word "additional" makes it sound like it was unexpected, but I could be reading to much into that.

There's multiple, so theoretically you won't need to see all of them if they're all showing roughly the same thing.

Is viewing for this just front and back, these displays look flat vs 360.

Some of them are apparently going to stay in the lake permanently, or at least I believe that's what insiders have said.

Any idea how they will get these floating hotels barges out to the lake? Especially since time to time the reflections of earth barges would bump into the bridge...

Is this new permit due to something went wrong and they need more anchors than what they thought? Or was this in the original plans?

That's an unusually long expiration for something like this.

So that's what the permit is for. I was wondering since the main barge is already being built backstage. Expiration dates last longer the the project, correct?

Expiration date of December 21, 2021

15 minutes after you posted, that one place already had a article up. They're really working fast today between this and the Tron articles.

Permit was filed today for "Installation of anchors to provide additional mooring for center barge." This will be in the middle of the lagoon.

With all the bells and whistles that Harmonious was, is still hopefully getting, you would think projections would be one of them?
