Painting and cleaning Mexico barge for Harmonious
Posted: Tuesday April 27, 2021 11:07am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Mexico show platform is currently receiving new paint and a thorough pressure wash cleaning.

This was the first of the Harmonious barges to be brought out into World Showcase Lagoon in December 2020.

Painting crews are applying deep black paint to parts of the structure, along with pressure washing.

As you can see from the Canada barge, the weather is already taking a toll on the appearance.

Likely many have the intention of hopping over to MK. My guess is it will be possible to go from MK to Epcot, but not so much Epcot to MK.

I'm pretty sure that's because Rat opens on 10/1. Which seems odd on MKs anniversary.

Not only ugly but now creepy lol.

Should be a difficult decision, well for some lol, if MK does have a 50th tag on the 1st. Plus the debut of the 50th projections. For me MKs official day only comes once in a lifetime. Even though it’s a 18 month long celebration and 2022 will have a lot more going on, hopefully, there’s still something special about being at MK On the actual day. I’ll settle for Harms second performance.

It’s an E Ticket.

Rockin Roller Coaster is filler for many people who don’t like thrills. Opinions don’t equal facts.

I must have missed all the TV spots with people walking through the local expo/trade show... err I mean Innovations.

So I see Epcot is now 'booked solid' as far as Park Reservation availibility goes for all tiers on October 1st. Knew that would happen once the internal murmurings hit mainstream... -

For the longest time, yes, yes it was. It was heavily pushed in advertising, it was the literal core of the park, it was *the* EPCOT headliner in the mid to late 90's. After that, sure, filler.

Innoventions was a collection of smaller exhibits. It wasn’t a marquee attraction. You might have planned your trip around visiting it, but most guests didn’t. They came for Spaceship Earth, Test Track, Soarin, and the world showcase food. Stuff like Innoventions and LWTL provide nice breaks in between the bigger stuff. They might be treasures to the hardcore fans, but they serve as filler for the one timers.

I really enjoyed the Spectaculab, I actually wish that could have stayed/gotten a new location at Epcot. It was neat!

No it wasn't. If you want to make the argument of anything in there being filler, look at the Spectaculab. The exhibit they only signed for a year because they knew Innoventions would still be around for another year due to Glidden's Colortopia contract. That was pure filler as it was never intended to stay there.
