Progress Is Being Made on Harmonious at Epcot!

https://allears.net/2020/11/15/new-aerial-photos-reveal-update-on-epcots-harmonious-barges-in-disney-world/

@bioreconstruct released some images on twitter of the barges being built for Harmonious and they look massive! This aerial view of 3 of the 4 side barges shows workers on the service walkway between video screens and a rotating arm.

Another shot shows a 3 barge "main stage" with the circular screen on center barge. Note the side barges will have rotating arms with effects. Personally my first though of that pictures was "They're building a Stargate at Epcot!" laugh

Those barges are definitely bigger than anything they had before.

Right? That's some pretty significant structure they've got going there. I'm wondering if like Illuminations they are going to have to be moved out onto the lagoon in the middle of the day as well. I know it's nit picky, but that always annoys me. laugh I have hope that they have improved the barge navigation abilities with what was done for Rivers of Light. These do seem huge though!

These barges are BIG!!

DFB caught a shot of a Harmonious barge out on the World Showcase Lagoon the other day and OMG is it BIG! That's just one barge too, the full show features several. Plus, there are some new signs up along the World Showcase Promenade with tidbits of information about the coming show.

I do like that the sign says that when the barge is out during the day that it will be a fountain. That answers my previous question about the aesthetics of having them in place during the day.
