If you are a fan of EPCOT, then you are more than likely familiar with the iconic leaping fountains in the Imagination! pavilion. And for those of you who have visited the theme park within the last year, you probably noticed that these fountains were turned off.

In fact, the leaping fountains have been shut off ever since March 2020 when the theme parks shut down due to the ongoing pandemic. Once Disney World reopened the theme parks in July 2020, the leaping fountains remained off.

If you are planning to visit EPCOT in the near future to catch a glimpse of the iconic leaping fountains, you should know that Future World is undergoing a huge renovation right now. The construction is happening as part of EPCOT’s overhaul that will divide the section of the park into three new neighborhoods — World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature (with World Showcase, of course, being the fourth neighborhood as it will remain located in the back of the park).
