Before COVID-19 took hold, Epcot’s newest nighttime spectacular was scheduled to debut this year. Disney announced “HarmonioUS” is set to be one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for a Disney Park. While we have yet to learn of a debut date, we were thrilled to see aerial photos shared showing the construction for HarmonioUS… meaning progress is being made despite Disney’s current hold on nighttime entertainment. Bioreconstruct took to Twitter to share 7 photos of the barge construction as of November 14 with notes as follows.
Photo #1: “Aerial overview of EPCOT’s backstage marina. Arrow at rotating arms ready to be placed on the center barges of the show. This staging area has a lot of interesting pieces to see and wonder where they will go.”
Photo #2: “Aerial overview of EPCOT’s backstage marina, where barges are under construction for the new HarmonioUS show.”
Photo #3: “Aerial view of 2 of the barges in EPCOT’s new HarmonioUS show. Arrow at ventilation for workers inside a hull. Rotating arms can also be seen in between video screens on the sides. It seems like staging of some of the effects can also be seen.”
