So obviously the good news is that the work on the nighttime spectacular has continued and isn’t something else that Disney has decided to postpone at the park after we heard that both Spaceship Earth and the Mary Poppins attraction have had progress halted.

The bad news is that we still have no idea on when nighttime shows at the Walt Disney World resort will continue due to the current pandemic.

Here’s how Disney describe the upcoming show:

Harmonious is one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for a Disney Park. The show is a beautifully crafted dreamscape of Disney music and images, reimagined by diverse cultural musicians and artists from around the world. It’s a transformative experience, where we can discover how Disney music has the power to inspire and unite us all with the magic of possibility. 

While there has been no official confirmation, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a delay into 2021 before we see Harmonious officially debut at EPCOT. Despite the delays in some projects, there is still a lot of construction work happening at the park at the minute.

There has also been no word from Disney on whether we will see a return of EPCOT Forever before Harmonious takes over the World Showcase Lagoon.

We are also a little concerned about too many characters taking over the show and whether this will just too similar to Happily Ever After at the Magic Kingdom. That being said, we’re also sure that Disney will squash any of these concerns as soon as the show makes its debut.
