The Lawnmower Tree
Fort Wilderness Resort, located on Bay Lake near Wilderness Lodge and just past the old River Country water park, is one of the most historical locations in Walt Disney World.
One of the original "resorts" in the park, this campground, which has expanded now to include cabins, has its own following of dedicated fans, and is the site of many fan favorite attractions, like Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue and Trail's End Restaurant.
It's also the home of some fun "urban legends" of Disney, like the Lawnmower Tree!! According to Disney legend, Billy Bowlegs parked his mower much too close to this "real fast grower" of a tree, which quickly grew to encompass Billy's mower!
In truth, nobody really seems to know the full story of the lawnmower. Some Cast Members and Imagineers found it and highlighted it as part of Fort Wilderness' story, and for many years, guests enjoyed watching the tree slowly encompass the lawnmower as it grew around the tool.
Unfortunately, the tree has now died, and its progress is forever halted around the mower -- leaving only a few blades in view.
