Harmonious is a brand new nighttime spectacular coming to EPCOT. Originally, it was given a spring 2020 opening date. However, since then, Disney has not confirmed an opening date. According to Zach Riddley, Disney Imagineer:

From a story perspective, it’s the opportunity to bring a global connection and global community with Disney music in a way we’ve never been able to do before.

According to Disney Parks Blog, Harmonious is a global effort that embraces the spirit of EPCOT’s World Showcase. When it’s completed, it will be one of the largest nighttime spectaculars Disney’s ever done. That is exciting news!

Disney Imagineers are “setting the stage” by working on the shows five floating platforms. Also, the floating platforms hold the Harmonious equipment to run the show. According to Disney, these platforms will be positioned like a compass.

Recently, Disney installed the center platform! It measures a whopping 6-stories tall! This platform supports a “high density water curtain, moving lights, fountains, and more.”

With Disney’s 50th Anniversary right around the corner, and one Disney Theme Park already completely sold out, we’re left wondering when Harmonious will begin?

We’ve received word that Disney Park Icons will receive a transformation. Secondly, new character looks are coming for the 50th Anniversary. With October 1, 2021 coming soon, we’re hoping Harmonious will be open by then. We do have a clue that it will be ready by this fall, though.

Unfortunately, Disney states that the “show is still in early stages of development with more finishing details to come“. Check back here often for updates!
