- As we get closer to the premiere of the new nighttime spectacular, Harmonious, at EPCOT, Imagineer Zach Riddley has taken to Instagram to show off a picture of one of the torches that surround World Showcase Lagoon, promising that they will be used in the new show.
- Riddley captioned the photo: “Storytelling by firelight. These torches are fierce and a core part of the spectacular experience each night in World Showcase lagoon. These torches have played a role in Illuminations and EPCOT Forever. And I can confirm they will be part of our new show Harmonious coming Oct 1st!!”
- The torches were originally installed as part of the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration for the debut of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. There are 19 of these torches surrounding the lagoon, each one representing a different century with the globe in the show opening during the finale to reveal the 20th torch, marking the new millennium.
