Walt Disney Imagineering has announced that there will not just be a brand new nighttime show coming to EPCOT, but also a dazzling daytime show as well.

Announced at D23’s Fantastic Worlds Celebration event called “EPCOT – The Magic of Possibility,” Zach Riddley, Imagineering Portfolio Executive for Walt Disney World Resort, and Melissa Valiquette, Vice President of EPCOT shared that the massive barges being built for the nighttime spectacular, HarmonioUS, will be permanently installed in the middle of World Showcase lagoon to provide entertainment all day.

“These show elements will become a defining feature of EPCOT,” said Riddley. Their scale gives us a chance to bring a beautiful new ambient daytime look to the world showcase lagoon with water fountains that perfectly situate these elements within World Showcase and of course the real magic will happen at night when they come alive.”

We at Inside the Magic cannot wait to see these amazing new experiences finally reach completion and our hopes are higher for what this park looks to become. It has been well known that the spectacular nighttime show was going to come to the park, but no one was expecting to also have a daytime show.

Soon the walks along World Showcase will be accompanied by this incredible fountain display. But one has to ask the question: how will this affect the Friendship boats taking Guests across the lagoon?
