Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort are home to many stunning and incredible nighttime spectaculars.

Disneyland Resort has recently announced that its nighttime spectaculars would be returning on April 22, including the Main Street Electrical Parade, Disneyland Forever fireworks show, and World of Color. In addition, Fantasmic! will be coming back to Disneyland on May 28.

Over at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Enchantment was introduced at Magic Kingdom last year to replace the beloved Happily Ever After fireworks show. While there has been no update on Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, construction is progressing and the attraction is set to reopen this year at some point.

In addition, Disney introduced an all-new nighttime spectacular at EPCOT called Harmonious.

The show has been running for several months now and has captivated Disney Park Guests with its dazzling floating giant screens, choreographed moving fountains, lights, lasers, and so much more.

Disney just recently updated its Park Hours through the first of June and it seems the nighttime spectacular will be mysteriously disappearing for one night.

On June 5th, EPCOT is set to close an hour early at 8:00 p.m. and EPCOT Harmonious will not be running this night. While Disney has not confirmed the reason, this is typically due to a private party renting out the theme park.

Disney’s official description of Harmonious reads:

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.

Harmonious is a brilliant centerpiece to The World’s Most Magical Celebration—celebrating the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort.
