We’ve already seen two barges placed out on the water in preparation for this show, and we’ve seen the arms on these barges being tested. Today, we spotted another update on one of the barges that might point to some of the awesome technology that’ll be used in this show.
The Harmonious show is set to use five huge floating set pieces to house special effects for the production, including custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, lights and lasers, and pyrotechnics.
During the show, guests will be treated to Disney images featuring beloved characters, and Disney music with classic songs reinterpreted and presented by diverse cultural musicians from around the world.
Today, as we walked past the two Harmonious barges that are already out in World Showcase Lagoon, we noticed that one of the barges had a grid-like pattern on it. The other barge, however, was not showing this grid-like pattern.
The grid appears to go from A1 to X1.
This appears to be similar to what is used for projection mapping. Projection Mapping technology allows Imagineers to precisely map out where a projection will land. We’re excited to see how this grid is utilized to provide guests with an amazing nighttime show experience.
Harmonious was originally scheduled to debut in the spring of 2020. But, due to the closure of the theme parks from mid-March through mid-July 2020, it has been slightly delayed. A new opening date has yet to be announced, but we’re on the lookout for more updates.
We’ll let you know once we spot any more information about this upcoming show!
