Work taking place on EPCOT'S island based lasers ahead of Harmonious

Work on Harmonious island lasers
Posted: Wednesday April 28, 2021 10:54am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Most the attention on Harmonious is very much in the center of World Showcase Lagoon, but work is also underway on the land based effects that make up a big part of EPCOT'S nighttime shows.

The island based lasers that were added during 2014 for Reflections of Earth are now getting some attention, although it is unclear what is being done.

The laser currently being worked on is on the island closest to the France pavilion.

There is still no opening date for the show beyond 2021, but we continue to hear chatter that the return of fireworks is very much in consideration and remains very firmly in Walt Disney World's plans.

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.
