While many are surely excited to see the new show, quite a few people have complained about how these barges obstruct the view across World Showcase Lagoon. We’ve even called it “EPCOT’s ugliest transformation,” and we have a feeling some people out there might agree with that description. 😬 But today, as we walked past these barges, we got a peek at one thing that could make them look a bit better!
While the barges will be utilized for Harmonious at night, Disney had previously announced that the barges would serve as fountains during the day.
Earlier today, as we were walking around World Showcase Lagoon, we spotted some of those water effects being tested on the barges!
These effects seem to mirror what was shown in Disney’s concept art for the daytime fountains, at least partially. But, it is possible that these effects are being tested for the nighttime show.
It was interesting to see the fountains being tested. What do you think? If Disney does ultimately run fountains on these barges during the day, would the fountains make the barges less of an eyesore? Tell us in the comments!
We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more updates about these barges and any other news around Disney World. Be sure to check back with us for more updates.
