The Fountain of Nations at Epcot is much more than a simple water fountain. First off, it has an interesting beginning which dates back to its dedication in October of 1982. On that day, there was a container of water from 29 different nations poured into it by representatives from those nations. More than 30,000 gallons of water cascade over its tiered sides every minute. There are 200 pneumatic shooters that create dancing waters synced with musical selections to entertain guests who are walking by. Some of this water is launched over 80 feet into the air, which can be seen in this photo I shot a few weeks ago.
