With Epcot gearing up for the debut of Harmonious later this year, the resort is currently refurbishing the torches that surround the World Showcase Lagoon.
- Fans of the long-running IllumiNations nighttime spectacular know the iconic role the 19 torches around World Showcase Lagoon played in the program.
- While that show ended its run last year, the torches have remained, also being integrated into the current temporary show ironically named Epcot Forever.
- Now the flammable beacons are undergoing a brief refurbishment as the operating system that powers them gets an upgrade.
- As a result, the torches will be dark for a short time.
- This refurbishment is expected to last for nine days.
More from Epcot:
- Speaking of Harmonious, just yesterday the resort revealed that the new floating platforms that will be used for the show arrived.
- Elsewhere in the park, the annual Festival of the Arts is now underway.
- On the same day that celebration kicked off, Epcot also debuted three new films: a Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along in France, Canada Far and Wide in Canada, and Awesome Planet at The Land pavilion.
