Freaky Fridays: The Disney World Shoe Tree

Guests taking the boat launch from Fort Wilderness to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom Park will encounter a curious sight midway through their journey- a tree covered with shoes. It's an odd sight at a place that prides itself on cleanliness. So what's the story behind this tree? Whenever one of the boat captains retires or leaves, he or she will throw their shoes on the tree, adding to the "decorations". The tradition continues to this day.
