Will the Enormous Floating Platforms for EPCOT’s “Harmonious” Ruin the Vista of World Showcase Lagoon?
Disney Parks Blog announced that the first of five enormous floating platforms was moved into position on World Showcase Lagoon to begin testing of its onboard show equipment. These will be used for the newest nighttime spectacular coming to EPCOT, “Harmonious”.
Zach Riddley, Walt Disney World Site Portfolio Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering said that “once completed, these platforms will create a sparkling fountain, providing new energy to World Showcase during the daytime, and after dark, they’ll become part of one of the largest nighttime shows ever created for a Disney Park! Work continues, and we will be sharing details of the creative vision, music, imagery and global inspiration for this one-of-a-kind spectacular as we make additional progress.”
Take a look at the size of these platforms. They are monstrous! Can you imagine what having five of these in the lagoon would look like? Gone will be the days of the wonderful vista we enjoy today. Disney says these platforms will be used as fountains during the day. I do my best to trust Disney to make the best decision so I am hoping that these fountains will actually add to the World Showcase Lagoon’s vista. What do you think?
