DDW Pic 471. Fountain of Nations
Fountain of Nations
The "Fountain of Nations" sits behind Spaceship Earth in the Innoventions Plaza section of Epcot. This impressive display of dancing waters puts on a "show" every fifteen minutes. It is choreographed with several different musical scores, including pieces by Yanni, John Tesh, and even movie soundtracks. This fountain contains over 200,000 gallons and can shoot water up to 150 feet into the air. As part of Epcot's opening ceremony back in 1982, over 20 countries sent representatives to participate. Each one poured a gallon of water from their homeland into the fountain. In addition to the opening day ceremony, this "Pouring of the Waters" also took place at Epcot's 25th anniversary celebration.
