  1. Mark Fuller, a former Walt Disney Imagineer, was responsible for the design of these fountains. Mark has since formed his own company dedicated to fountain design, WET (Water Entertainment Technologies) Enterprises, Inc., and he may be able to provide you with the information you are requesting. Mark also designed the Fountain of Nations in the Innoventions Plaza. The company's address is:
    WET Enterprises, Inc. 90 Universal City Plaza Universal City, CA 91608
  2. The fountain at Epcot Innoventions Plaza can shoot water 150 feet in the air -- within 30 feet of the top of Spaceship Earth. If all of the shooters were fired at once, there would be 2,000 gallons of water in the air.

  3. On windy nights, the fountain has a hilarious tendancy to start its show as guests are leaving IllumiNations. Stand somewhere sheltered, and watch as people scream and run for cover as the water blows all over the plaza, and people become disorientated in clouds of mist and fog. Funnier than it sounds!

  4. The musical group Cast in Bronze plays at Innoventions Plaza
  5. At the Fountain of Nations at Future World. The money gathered throughout the year in our fountains are awarded to local nonprofit organizations.
  6. The Kristos, the contortionists who perform daily in Innoventions Plaza, are a mother/sons group. Amazingly, the female "alien" is in her fifties and the two males are her sons!
