Disney World is a magical place, but that doesn’t mean that everything runs smoothly 100% of the time. There are sometimes emergency situations in the parks, and Disney generally has plans in place to handle those events.
Tonight in EPCOT, it looks like one such event has occurred. The Harmonious barges appeared to catch fire during EPCOT’s fireworks show.
The barges are large structures in the middle of the World Showcase Lagoon, from which the fireworks are set off during the Harmonious show. These barges also display projections and lights.
Tonight, several visitors in EPCOT tweeted videos that showed one part of the barges appearing to catch fire.
