6 Best Harmonious Viewing Spots in Epcot at Disney World

Many guests love to spend plenty of time in Epcot on a Disney World vacation. Guests can explore the four neighborhoods for attractions, dining, shopping, and entertainment, which bring them to different places in time and location. With so many amazing experiences to enjoy in Epcot, no day there is complete without enjoying a nighttime show, which brings World Showcase Lagoon to life. “Harmonious,” one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for a Disney park, is now showing at EPCOT. This new show brings the globe together at World Showcase Lagoon in a celebration of Disney music that inspires people worldwide.

Despite World Showcase Lagoon being massive, guests often line up as early as an hour before showtime to guarantee the perfect view. While there are plenty of places to enjoy “Harmonious”, there are also some spots that are not so great and some that are just okay. Guests who are looking to have the perfect view of “Harmonious” on their next visit to Epcot should choose one of the spots listed below and get there at least an hour before showtime! Here are the six best viewing spots for “Harmonious.”


1 – Japan’s Balcony

The Japan Pavilion in World Showcase features beautiful traditional architecture, including many tall buildings with blue slanted roofs. Guests who are looking to find a unique and amazing viewing spot for “Harmonious” should head into the pavilion and climb some stairs for the perfect location. The largest building in the Japan Pavilion is home to the Mitsukoshi Department Store on the first floor, which sells a variety of souvenirs, including kimonos and stuffed animals. The second floor of the building is home to the popular Tokyo Dining Restaurant, which is a full-service location open for lunch and dinner that serves up traditional Japanese cuisine. Guests who head up to the second level of the building near the entrance to Tokyo Dining can enjoy a beautiful balcony that offers sweeping views of “Harmonious.”

2 – Rose & Crown Pub Fireworks Dining Package

5 – Showcase Plaza

Editor’s Note: At this time, dessert parties are temporarily suspended.

When guests head towards World Showcase from Future World, they approach Showcase Plaza, where they choose to either head left towards Mexico or right towards Canada. When show time arrives for Harmonious, Showcase Plaza becomes the dessert party viewing area offering centered and perfect views of the show. Even if guests have reservations for the dessert party, they should still plan on arriving at the Showcase Plaza at least an hour before the show is set to begin to secure spots in the front of the area.

6 – Italy’s Bridge

The Italy Pavilion in World Showcase is located almost directly across World Showcase Lagoon from Showcase Plaza and features an area that offers amazing views of “Harmonious.” Located along the water is a small area of the pavilion which features several bridges and a gently bobbing gondola in the water. Guests who arrive early enough to the location can score a spot right up against the railings there and enjoy a phenomenal view of “Harmonious.”
