The Walt Disney World Resort is home to some incredible experiences. From thrilling roller coasters at EPCOT to classic dark rides in Magic Kingdom, Guests will find fun and magic around every corner. Guests looking to shop and eat can visit Disney Springs for a wild time.

Walt Disney World also offers Guests the chance to visit two amazing water parks as well, though only one is currently open.

Anyone who’s ever been to Disney or any other theme park knows there’s always something new on the horizon(s) at EPCOT.

If you’ve been to Disney World recently, then you’ll know EPCOT is not the same theme park we know and love. Disney has been renovating and overhauling a majority of the theme park, adding new experiences, rides, and attractions. The most recent addition was Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, the Park’s first-ever roller coaster. This thrilling adventure places Guests on a mission to, well, guard the galaxy with the entire crew from Marvel’s most unique series of films.

Soon, EPCOT will be home to a new attraction inspired by Dsienys’s Moana franchise. However, one attraction closed forever earlier in 2023, and we can’t say we’re that sad to see it go.

Harmonious, EPCOT’s most recent nighttime spectacular, soft-opened to Guests back in 2021 and instantly became one of the most controversial attractions at Walt Disney World. The show truly was nothing like anything we’ve ever seen before, including pyrotechnics, lighting, fountains, and music, all working together to create harmony within the theme park.

However, this show did not go over well with a large portion of Guests. The attraction faced criticism from the jump. At the very beginning of the show, fans were torn on the new look as well as hated the fact that part of the show obstructed the view across the World Showcase Lagoon. Some called the show a “grotesque” addition to the Disney Parks.

Disney permanently closed this attraction in 2023, with crews working quickly to dismantle the barges located in World Showcase Lagoon.

New photos show progress made on Harmonious, as shared by bioreconstruct:

As a new post on Reddit shares, the final barge has been removed from the lagon:

As you can see, Disney is wasting no time in dismantling and destroying Hamronious. A new show is expected to replace Hamrnious sometime in 2023.

Were you sad to see Harmonious close? What’s your favorite attraction at EPCOT?
