News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

I honestly wonder if those in charge at WDW even realize the high negativity of the barges. But I guess even if they do they really do not have a choice at this point but to push forward and hope enough of the average guests, who they aim towards anyway now a days, do not care about the lagoon views and fall in love with the show itself.
Truthfully I believe the vast majority of the average guests will indeed love Harmonious and think it’s the best show yet, and it may even have HEAs popularity.

It will be interesting to see. HEA has a really impressive amount of pyro though. If they are relying on the screens and the fountains the guests may not be too impressed ESPECIALLY the ones who don’t get a good view.

IDK if any locals sat around WSL all day but how long did ROE's setup take? ROE would be brought onto WSL every day. Granted the bridge might need to be up a little longer for the Stargate and Tacos.....but, might Stargate's arms fit under the bridge? The pyro barges always fit under I believe.
ROE were much smaller and self propelled /driven units. These are not moving (and I seriously doubt ever really were seriously considered as doing such)

I looks as though Harm will be heavy lighting to. But I agree hopefully Harm will have an equal amount of pyro compared to HEA and RoE.

It really is bonkers to me that WDI Disney didn't care if the lagoon and the views across it were screwed up all day for something that happens at night. You will never be able to look from FW to WS or back again, if it's true that these are stationary machines. Do they not care?

Does WDI have a lot of input on something like this?

Morbidly curious if this will be live when I am down there in late October. Trying to approach it with an open mind but man...

They would have had considerable input.
It’s possible they raised objections and were ignored, but something as basic as alignment of the show just to avoid repositioning the center dock, I have to think WDI of yesteryear would have found a way to make it happen and remain in budget.

I blame WDI as much as management on this cluster...

I just got back from visiting Epcot this past Sunday. The tacos and stargate are more hideous in person than in the photos. It's physically jarring to be enjoying a stroll around the lagoon, look towards what would normally be across the water at the opposing country, and get stopped in your tracks by giant black blobs instead. When approached by a PPP, I asked it he could take one without the tacos in it, and he actually got upset with me for asking. Seriously?!

Which brings me to another question: I'm seeing posts regarding the cleanliness of the lagoon water. One of my favorite stops, especially on a hot day, is in Canada at the bottom of the falls (entrance to the movie). I will stand there and let the mist cool me off, and now I'm starting to second guess myself. Is this the same nasty water you speak of that's in the lagoon?

Lol even if it's all connected I'm sure it's safe to get misted with it. If it wasn't, they'd prevent you from doing it.

Hmm I wonder if that is a directive from the higher-ups or just the thoughts of the individual PPP? Either way, it’s ridiculous that they would be shocked that people don’t want a tangle of industrial steel in their family photos.
