Late last year it was confirmed for the first time that Harmonious (which is seemingly no longer being stylized as HarmonioUS) will be making its debut at Epcot sometime in spring 2020. In preparation for this opening, work is progressing quickly around Epcot's World Showcase Lagoon on infrastructure for this show, seemingly hinting that we may see an opening sooner rather than later. And though Disney has made no formal announcement about an official opening date just yet, thanks to a newly-released behind the scenes video now we know some additional details about what to expect from this show when it opens in the next few weeks.
New show action barges with screens will form a "Compass"
In a newly-released behind the scenes video (which you can check out above), it revealed that Harmonious will feature a total of 5 "show action" barges that will form a "compass", with one extra large barge in the center and four surrounding it. The barge featured in the video is 30ft wide by 75ft long and, like the other barges that will be featured in this show, features large screens, as well as equipment for pyrotechnic, light, and water effects.
Testing for this show is currently going on after hours
Though Harmonious isn't quite ready to go yet, reports have surfaced indicating that Disney is already testing certain show elements at the park after hours, including lighting and audio. In addition, Epcot's World Showcase torches (which are currently out of service) are being refurbished so they will be ready to be lit once again as part of the new Harmonious show.
