Will Harmonious Survive?

I just foresee massive maintenance problems with all this technology sitting in the middle of the lagoon, day in an day out, through all types of weather. Will they continue to run the show through all the break-downs ? If the Yeti in Everest is any indication, yes they will. But depending on what breaks down, it could be much more impactful to the show than even the Yeti is to Everest. What will be the response of the crowd then ?

That would be interesting, Harm in "B" mode.

I saw it opening night and felt it was nothing special. No emotional connection whatsoever.

I didn't mind the barges, but the tech they're using feels... Underwhelming. It wasn't a game-changer like WOC and could have been considering the size and scope of that lake.

Perhaps it's time for Dis to bring in proper third-party design firms who can come up with better concepts.

I have only seen the livestream of it and it Harmed me :) We will be going soon and I am wondering if anyone has scouted out good viewing spots yet. We usually watched from Canada in the before times or from Japan once. Since we have this Eye of Sauron thing in the middle of the lagoon. Just wondering so maybe seeing it from a good vantage might help my enjoyment.
I watched between the entrance of WS and from Canada and pretty much all you can see is a barg blocking the view.

i found it to be mediocre. illuminations was way better with less tech vs harmonious. i found some of the songs/segments they used had to relation to the park other than playing a popular song. i just hope down the road they can tweak it a bit. we’ll see.

I always said they should build 4 boathouses designed to match the pavilion that they can stay in, set a winch cable from the center to the boathouse low enough for boats can clear and then can be pulled in and out. I also thought maybe they should build 4 nice sailboats and put the images on the sails. Also I thing a good symbol of travel and unity. Maybe have 7 boats gathered together in the lagoon representing all 7 continents joining each other for harmonious. Having real boats are not unnatural looking in a body of water and can sit there all day.

I think the barges are permanently moored but I love the boat idea... why not mask the barges with hulls?

Forgive my horrible photoshop skills but I think it would definitely be an improvement over what we have now...

Heck even put a wooden boarder around them and make them look like moring docks, tourist towns have all kinds of industrial boats out in the sight line but those just look plain bizarre.
