Central ring barge
Posted: Friday February 26, 2021 8:53am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Part of the huge central barge for Harmonious has now been brought into EPCOT's World Showcase as work continues on completing the hardware infrastructure for the new show.

The ring shaped "Stargate" barge, the largest of the show platforms, features lighting effects and a huge water screen to display projections.

We understand that what is currently in the lagoon is not the completed piece, but the first part of a 3-part platform.

The central barge will be joined by 4 of the fin shaped barges, of which 2 are currently in position - at Mexico and Canada. The concept are below shows the arrangement of the show platforms in the lagoon.

An opening date for the show is yet to be announced, but speculation continues to suggest that the show is being planned to be open by October 2021.

Kermit has joined the circus and is preparing to enter the Globe "Stargate of Death." 😆

I'm not even going to be going to Disney any time soon. I can't afford it. In fact I haven't been to Disney world in years. My point is that if you don't want to go, that's fine but it will not make a bit of difference to Disney. Frankly I think the same is true of voting in certain contexts but I don't really want to get into that.

It so weird that Epcot used to have a restaurant called "Stargate", now we've got an actual one. I wonder if Richard Dean Anderson or Kurt Russell will use it???

Unfortunately it will probably get great reviews for being a technical tour de force.

I'm actually excited for this show to be terrible and get poor reviews so that they remove these things.

It hasn’t earned an internal nickname of “mistake on the lake” for its charming appearance and blending into the background.

This made me laugh out loud. Also the photo of the Kermit topiary really made me realize how bad these truly are.

Planters on wheels, Disney's usual means of "hiding" things, outta do the trick! 🤣 "We want... a shrubbery! One that looks nice. And not too expensive."

Yes, you’re correct, I took pics from every pavilion and got them confused. I’ll fix it.

This is the same argument people make when they don't want to vote in political elections. Every voice counts and if you don't like the way things are going, speak up or spend elsewhere. I used to go to WDW every year and haven't been in the last 5 years because our last trip was so unpleasant. I probably will go again but my trips are so much less frequent than they used to be.
