We've always passed this by, never having time. I watched some videos of it's funny! Like laugh out loud funny! We are making a point to visit it this trip!

New routine or same old same old?

Yeah, it's probably safe to say they wont return at all during this "final" leg of performances. That being said, the Harmonious preview did feature lasers, so I'm going to assume that lasers will be returning for Disney Enchantment as well. Maybe it's difficult to rework the lasers for a new show while concurrently using them for a running show. I just wonder what the deal is with WWOA... Also side note, I remember Fantasmic having issues with its upgraded lasers before it shut down, I wonder what that will look like when Fantasmic finally makes its return.

Does anyone know the reason for no lasers? All are off in the shows.

You are right! I just figured the laser effect may be on like i thought in this screenshot. The rest of the projections turned off, but the “applause” is still highlighted, so my assumption was that it’s laser. But this is what it normally looks like, much brighter and “flashier”. So it it’s just the projection underlay working. RIP lasers.. :(

ChristianGAug 03, 2021

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the "applause" is normally a projection with the laser text flashed on top of it, so I believe what is currently being shown is just the projection because none of the other castle lasers are operating (i.e. the strobes at the beginning, the spirals during Friend Like Me, etc.)

Oh like world of color style? That’s cool.

gerararAug 02, 2021

Lasers on water.

I’m not watching cause I’m trying to keep it spoiler free... were they actually lasers in the harmonious show? Or the moving lights that are mounted on the truss of the lagoon barges?

Lasers have definitely been working in Epcot at least as evident by the lasers used in that Harmonius sneak peak video from last week (which was filmed during the various testing over the past months) But as for any show shown to the public, nada. Edit: now that I recall, lasers are used on the castle during HEA —especially look at the genie scene and where it flashes “Applause”.

The lasers have all been moved to The Seas in Epcot - for the sharks.

Vinnie MacAug 02, 2021

I remember someone telling me that it was cause of another reason, but with its absence from the WWoA, I feel like it's definitely either FAA related reasons or maybe a third party operator like TrainChasers suggested.

Were lasers provided / operated by a 3rd party?
