Harmonious officially debuted to Guests on October 1, 2021 for Disney World’s 50th anniversary and EPCOT’s birthday. The show, though is bringing in some mixed reviews, truly is nothing like anyone has ever seen before as it includes pyrotechnics, lighting, fountains, and music all working together to create harmony within the theme park.
Guests can stand around World Showcase to take in the new nighttime show every evening at EPCOT; however, one of the prime viewing spots for Harmonious is now completely obstructed.
One of the prime viewing spots for Harmonious is at the front of World Showcase, which gives Guests the perfect view of the barges on World Showcase Lagoon. This would often be one of the busiest parts of the Park every evening when Harmonious began.
However, recently Disney installed a new performance stage for the holiday season, resulting in an obstructed view for Harmonious. Bioreconstruct shared a photo of the new stage, along with the caption:
Very interesting that there’s now obstructed viewing at what many consider the premium place to watch Harmonious. This viewpoint is square to the center water screen.
A seasonal performance stage recently added.

It is very interesting to see Disney install the stage here as, again, this is a prime viewing spot for Harmonious. If you are looking to see Harmonious without this obstructed view, we suggest trying the Japan pavilion as Guests can get a relatively good view of the barges on World Showcase Lagoon from that side of the Park.
