While the world slept last night, Walt Disney Imagineering reached another huge milestone for the new nighttime spectacular, “HarmonioUS.” Late into the evening, worked continued to bring the platforms together for the first time.
This iconic platform holds an impressive six-story-tall ring structure that will be the centerpiece of this new show on World Showcase Lagoon at EPCOT. This is a show on a scale unlike anything we have achieved before. This centerpiece will support a high-density water curtain, moving lights, fountains in a circular form that perfectly symbolizes our story of global connection through the reach of Disney music.
“Harmonious” is a global effort, truly embracing the magic of possibility. In recent weeks, Disney Live Entertainment technical designers across the country have been programming various elements of the show, from media and fountains to lighting and pyrotechnics, working in a completely virtual environment. Our music producers at Walt Disney Imagineering have been remotely directing recording sessions with an incredibly diverse array of musical artists, performing in studios around the world.
Once complete, “Harmonious” will be one of the largest nighttime spectaculars we’ve ever produced. We’re busy setting the stage of this innovative toolkit, preparing each of the show’s five floating platforms to take its place on World Showcase Lagoon. Positioned like a compass, these platforms house the primary show equipment for “Harmonious,” and on the recently-placed center platform stands an iconic six-story-tall central ring structure, supporting a high-density water curtain, moving lights, fountains and more.
