The Disney Imaginers are masters -- taking a few simple rudiments
such as light, water and sound and creating one of the most gorgeous
"attractions" -- the Innovation Fountains located in Innovations Plaza in
Epcot's Future World.
The intricate exhibit is based on a 180 x 120 foot oval.
Computerized pumps send 30,000 gallons of water cascading down its
tiered walls per minute.
Over 108,000 gallons of water twirl all through the fountain.
The supernatural fountains have been part of Epcot since opening day. In fact,

world a magical memory.
The original fountains were refurbished in

It took 3 months of computer programming to devise the water ballets that run
every 15 minutes.
At night, the fountains take on another measurement as 1,068
colored lights focus on the streams of water.
In holiday time the rate of the tickets decreases and visitors can
enjoy the benefit of cheap Walt Disney discount tickets.
During the month of December, when the entire World has been altered by
thousands of holiday ribbons, the fountain also takes on a new dimension.
The music changes to holiday music and the fountains are now in ideal accord
with the Lights of Winter Archway.
So, in conclusion it can be said that EPCOT fountain is an integrated part of
Orlando Florida theme park attraction.
