Harmonious, EPCOT’s nighttime spectacular will be saying goodbye to EPCOT as Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary does the same. The show will be ending its run on March 31, 2023, with The World’s Most Magical Celebration. Harmonious officially opened on October 1, 2021, with some soft opening performances on the nights leading up to its official opening. The nightly show celebrates how Disney music that is inspired by music from around the world brings people 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 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. 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.
The next show set to come to EPCOT at night is something to do with Disney 100 Years of Wonder, as part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company. It is unknown when the new show will be replacing Harmonious following its closure on March 31, 2023. Before Harmonious, EPCOT presented EPCOT Forever! and before that Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.
