Disney has officially confirmed that while the grand debut of Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom and Harmonious at EPCOT will be taking place on October 1 (the very first day of the 50th anniversary festivities, dubbed The World’s Most Magical Celebration), there will actually be a soft opening of one of the shows leading up to the official premiere.

Since just a few days ago, the official Walt Disney World online calendar that shows park hours, entertainment showtimes, and more started displaying showtimes for Harmonious on September 29 and September 30. Now, Disney has taken to social media to tell Annual Passholders to head to EPCOT this week to celebrate the soft opening of this magical new EPCOT firework show.

Remember that a valid theme park admission (such as a theme park ticket valid for September 29 or 30, or an Annual Pass that is not blocked out) and a Disney Park Pass reservation are both required in order to visit EPCOT this week on either of the soft opening dates for Harmonious.

If you can’t make it to the theme parks this week, don’t fret! Disney is planning to live stream the two new nighttime spectaculars. On September 29, you can watch a live stream of Harmonious, and on September 30, you can watch a live stream of Disney Enchantment.

Below is the official description of Harmonious at EPCOT, soft opening on September 29 and 30 and officially premiering on October 1:

Watch the World Come Together

The heart of the Epcot transformation comes to life with Harmonious, one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for Disney Parks. The show is a beautifully crafted medley of classic Disney music and visuals reinterpreted by a culturally diverse group of 240 artists from all around the world. Come and be dazzled by all of it as you discover how Disney music and stories have the power to inspire and unite us all, overcoming any language or border.

This magnificent new show brings to World Showcase Lagoon an innovative combination of floating giant screens, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics and lasers in a 360-degree view. Enter amazing worlds inspired by Moana, Aladdin, Coco, Brave, The Lion King, Mulan, The Princess and the Frog and other classic stories. Colorful images and effects dance and change as Harmonious weaves familiar Disney music and stories together in brand-new ways.

Through unique perspectives as diverse as the world itself, Disney songs hop from language to language as the show brings people from different parts of the world together to unlock the magic of possibility.

Debuting in October 2021 with the launch of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration, Harmonious is a brilliant centerpiece to The World’s Most Magical Celebration.
