One of the six main firework and effect barges for the upcoming ‘Luminous The Symphony Of Us’ is now in position on World Showcase Lagoon.
The barge, which was assembled backstage behind the China pavilion, is now undergoing some preliminary testing in the lagoon.
Unlike Harmonious, the hardware for Luminous has been designed to be brought in and out of the lagoon daily, minimizing the visual intrusion across World Showcase.
The barge show platforms will launch fireworks, fountains, and lighting effects. More than two dozen smaller barges will extend outwards from the large central barges to provide additional effects across a wider area.
‘Luminous the Symphony of Us’ will debut on December 5, 2023, replacing EPCOT Forever.
