Just like Illuminations, Disney’s new nighttime spectacular will play every night over Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon.

Walt Disney Imagineering executive producer Michael Hundgen also weighed in on the subject manner saying “Think of it as the latest toolkit with the latest and greatest pyro, projections, fountains and lasers. We’re bringing it to that show. It’s sort of all the bells and whistles.”
Disney guests can expect to see huge floating set pieces smack in the middle of Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon.
“We have custom LED screens that we’ll be utilizing for HarmonioUS,” Chase says. “We’ll also be bringing back choreographed fountains that will help tell the story. And we’ll have lasers, lighting and, of course, pyrotechnics,” Disney parks live entertainment producer Jeremy Chase stated.
HarmonioUS Around The Globe
HarmonioUS is going to tell the story of Disney music and how it has inspired people from all around the world.
“The overall premise is really how music brings people together,” Chase said. “How Disney music brings the world together.”

Disney fans can agree, there are some big expectations for HarmonioUS as it has some pretty big shoes to fill. The fan-favorite show, Illuminations, just finished its 20 year run on the World Showcase Lagoon, which was on display from 1999 to 2019.
