Epcot fans and Disney World enthusiasts — time to book your 2020 vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Disney just announced when the highly anticipated, all-new fireworks spectacular HarmoniouUS is coming to Epcot: we finally have an opening season for this show!
According to a recent article on D23 that outlined all of the awesome things Disney fans around the world can look forward to in 2020, HarmoniouUS will make its debut at Epcot this spring. While we don’t yet have an exact opening date, it’s great to finally know the season when this new show is coming to one of the most beloved theme parks in all of Disney World.

If you’re unfamiliar, let us catch you up. In 2019, Epcot’s fan-favorite fireworks spectacular IllumiNations said its farewell, and an all-new, limited time fireworks show called Epcot Forever made its debut. The premiere of Epcot Forever brought mixed reviews — some loved it for its nostalgia, while others continued to miss IllumiNations. But we all know that Epcot Forever isn’t actually staying forever, and it will be replaced this spring with HarmoniouUS, a show that Disney continues to get us excited for while still hardly giving us any information about it.
At D23 Expo in summer 2019, Chairman of Disney Parks, Resorts, and Products Bob Chapek spoke about Harmonious and touted it as the “largest nighttime spectacular in Disney history.” Just like IllumiNations and Epcot Forever, Harmonious will be shown over the World Showcase Lagoon, only this show will be even bigger and more epic than anything we’ve seen before at Epcot. We love Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom, and since this show promises to be even more exciting than that, we’re definitely eager to see it this spring.
Even tough we don’t have an exact debut date for HarmonioUS, knowing that the fireworks spectacular is coming in the spring will help you plan your 2020 vacation, since if you visit in the summer or fall you are sure to be able to see the new nighttime entertainment at Epcot.
