Harmonious daytime video display

The Harmonious show platform barges are displaying a new daytime video mode today, as the countdown to "The World's Most Magical Celebration" nears its end.

The four large barges show a rippling water video, which approximates the look of the water in the World Showcase lagoon, perhaps looking like a reflection of the water.

Every couple of minutes, a 50 graphic appears in the center of the 25 feet high and 88 feet long double-sided LED panels.


Watch the video below for a look at the effect in motion.

Those hopes seem pretty Much dashed. But seriously I hope damage is minimal and no one is injured.

The nighttime show in EPCOT needs to start later in order to get in three Candlelight Procession* shows. *Which is neither candle-lit, nor a procession... but still a great show.

It’s also the first time since 1/1/2022 that Epcot will be closing after 9 pm (9:30 pm). Extended Evening Hours will run to 11:30 pm on Mondays.

If Harm is hurting WSL this much, it should be ending on September 30th!!!
