Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

Mr. Toad's Wild Ride has a very strong following, as was made clear when the Walt Disney World version was closed down to make room for a Winnie the Pooh ride. Based on the animated version of The Wind in the Willows (1949), riders get to experience Mr. Toad's lack of driving skills as the car careens through various scenes. Along with Peter Pan's Flight and Snow White's Adventure, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is one of the three original dark rides that opened with Disneyland in 1955.

  • Audio: No assistive devices are available and sound plays only a minor role in the attraction.

History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is an opening day attraction and has been in the same location since then.
  • This attraction's history: The ride itself remains very similar as when it opened in 1955 with various minor tweaks. The ride received a major refurbishment during the 1984 redesign of Fantasyland, but the biggest change was to the ride's exterior. The old design for this area of Fantasyland was that all the buildings were tents at a medieval tournament. As part of the redesign this theming was abandoned and the ride is now housed inside Toad Hall.
