EPCOT Forever, Disney

With the news that Harmonious will be replaced by an all-new night time show in late 2023, we originally assumed that it would finish at the end of the 50th Anniversary celebrations on March 31, 2023 and we weren't far off. Harmonious had its last performance on April 2 and EPCOT Forever has now returned. It is performed each evening at 9:00PM. The time is subject to change so be sure to check the official calendar here for the date of your visit. This nighttime spectacular will fill the gap of time whilst the new nighttime show for EPCOT is developed.

If you weren't lucky enough to be at the opening night performance then you can check out what is in store by watching the video embedded below which was posted by Mouse Steps.

EPCOT Forever originally debuted on October 1, 2019 to bridge the gap between the closure of Reflections of Earth and opening of Harmonious on September 29, 2021.

It was thought that EPCOT Forever had been retired permanently so news of its return certainly came as a surprise for many Disney fans. It is, however, the perfect choice to fill in the gap between Harmonious and the all-new night time show at EPCOT because it doesn't need any specific hardware in the lagoon.

With news of this new night time fireworks spectacular at EPCOT, fans speculated that the contentious barges may finally be removed. In January there was confirmation that indeed the barges would be removed from the lagoon. They are set to be demolished in the very near future.

Don't get rid of harmonious barges next year. We like to see the new show called D23 not just Epcot Forever.
