Disney Reveals New Epcot Fountain
Disney has today revealed the completed fountain at the front of EPCOT. Three acrylic pylons, each standing over 16 feet tall and featuring the park's logo surround the new fountain and hearken back to the creation of EPCOT.
The past, present and future of EPCOT are all coming together today in one special moment at the front of the park. Anyone visiting as of this morning will see in real life what we at Walt Disney Imagineering have been dreaming up in our heads for many years now....
And there in front of iconic Spaceship Earth you'll now see a reimagined fountain, standing in the footprint of the original that welcomed guests on the park's opening day in 1982. Our design team took special interest in this water feature, as we looked back to the geometry of the original for inspiration while creating some new magic of our own. In the fountain's center is a brilliant light, a unique liquid-cooled fixture we've designed with new capabilities that complement the fountain's changing colors and will coordinate with new lighting coming to Spaceship Earth and the upcoming World Celebration beyond.
