Oh how I miss Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. As a kid we would ride this attraction over and over, picking different sides each time. Mr. Toad was a ‘C’ ticket attraction so I used mine all up here or at the Grand Pix Raceway. Though not exactly the same, Disneyland still has Mr. Toad and I was excited that my wife and son got to experience it last year.
Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride was an opening day attraction at Walt Disney World based on Disney’s adaptation of The Wind in the Willows. The attraction was a classic dark ride with many twists and turns as you just missed many plywood characters. One of the fun features was there was actually two different track systems which went into different areas and at one point would head directly towards each other for another quick turn and near miss.
Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at the Magic Kingdom closed in 1998 to make way for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. You can still spot him in the area though, pay close attention to the pictures. Also you can find a statue of Mr. Toad in the cemetery at the Haunted Mansion.
