    I only know the name of one. It's Fuente de la Fortuna (Fountain of Fortune in Spanish). I don't know if it represents anything more than pirates seeking gold.

    This sounds like a question for Super Lou, you should write him an e-mail and he will either write you back or read your question on his poscast.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    There are actually four fountains; one of them is not marked very well!
    Not sure of the translations.

    Fuente de la Fortuna (Fountain of Fortune)
    La Fuente Serena (Fountain of Serenity)
    Fuente Cielo Azul (Fountain of the Clear Sky)
    Fuente del Arbolito (?)

    "arbolito" is "little tree" in Spanish, so Fountain of the Little Tree?

    I'm hanging my head in shame because I didn't even know there were four fountains outside of Pirates. Clearly, I don't get to WDW often enough!

    There's one across from the entrance and if I remember correctly, it doesn't look like a fountain anymore but instead a little flowerbed. There's one in the outdoor queue area, and one in the giftshop. Those are the ones I know about. As for names, can't remember which one's which :P
