Water from Epcot’s Fountain of Nations to be reused

by Brittani Tuttle

To make way for the new additions coming to Epcot that were announced at D23 Expo 2019, guests had to say farewell to many locations throughout Future World, including the Fountain of Nations.

However, that’s not the end of the story for the water that once resided there.

On Oct. 1, 1982, Epcot’s opening day, delegations from countries all over the world took part in the Ceremony of International Waters, where water from their home countries was poured into the Fountain of Nations from special containers.

Later on in the transformation of Epcot, water from the Fountain of Nations will be recycled and re-introduced into one of the new water features in the park to commemorate the past and honor the future.

Stay tuned for more updates on Epcot’s transformation as they are announced.

It broke my heart to hear that the Fountain of Nations was being destroyed. Our family would watch it for hours at night. It was beautiful, magical…

I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to go back to Epcot… And, if I do, children will ask their parents, ” Why is that poor man crying?”
