    Just watched Harmonious from the France-UK bridge and definitely don’t feel like I was in a good place for the full experience. Where is the best viewing spot for our next Epcot trip?

    Hey there, Alicia! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so excited that you've stopped by with another great vacation planning question!

    Harmonious is one of my favorite new experiences at Walt Disney World Resort! This EPCOT nighttime spectacular is visually stunning, and the soundtrack is just incredible. The story of bringing all people together represents the theme of EPCOT so well and gives me all the Disney feels. While I've enjoyed the show every time I've seen it from different spots around World Showcase, I definitely have my favorite viewing areas, and I'm happy to share these with you today.

    In my opinion, the best views of Harmonious are where you can get a fairly straight-on view of the circular center "screen" on the barge. The best straight-on, wide, unobstructed view of the show is at Showcase Plaza, between Port of Entry and Disney Traders right at the main entrance of World Showcase. However, this area can get very crowded, and you have to arrive pretty early to grab a good spot here. So, my favorite places to watch the show are across the World Showcase Lagoon from areas near the Japan or Italy Pavilions. I love the views of Harmonious AND the gorgeous Beacons of Light show on Spaceship Earth from these spots. There are also great fireworks viewing spots near Mexico and Canada - just be sure to find a spot where the view is not obstructed by trees. We usually grab a snack and a spot about 30 minutes before showtime.

    Alicia, have you heard about the Rose & Crown Fireworks Dining Package and the Spice Road Table Fireworks Dining Package?! At these events, you get premium views, a delicious prix fixe meal, and Guests 21 and over get unlimited alcoholic beverages. I'm excited to try one of these experiences this summer, so, maybe you will be, too!

    Alicia, I'm wishing you the most magical summer vacation with the BEST views of Harmonious to set the song inside you soaring! Please stop by any time with any of your vacation planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon.
