HarmonioUS is an upcoming nighttime spectacular that will debut in World Showcase at EPCOT. It will include pyrotechnics, projections, fountains, lasers, and more. Disney Parks Blog describes this show as:

“Harmonious” will bring to World Showcase Lagoon an innovative toolkit of massive floating set pieces that house a variety of show effects, including custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, colorful lights, lasers, pyrotechnics and more.

The show is a beautifully crafted nighttime dreamscape of Disney music and images, reimagined by diverse cultural musicians and artists from around the world.
