Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is a theme park attraction and dark ride at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. It is loosely based on Disney's adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows (1908), one of two segments comprising the animated package film The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949). The ride is one of the few remaining attractions operational since the park's opening in July 1955, although the current iteration of the ride opened in 1983. Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is located in Fantasyland, and a variation of the attraction also existed at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida, from the park's opening in 1971 until September 1998.Plan to visit Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Anaheim attractions using our Anaheim tour itinerary planning website.
In any variation of the attraction, guests assume the role of the titular Mr. Toad, recklessly careening through the English countryside and streets of London in a period motorcar before ultimately meeting demise in a railway tunnel and ending up in a tongue-in-cheek depiction of the underworld; the ride's ending has no significance to the events of either the animated film or the original novel. Originally envisioned as a roller coaster, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride was realized as a dark ride because Walt Disney felt as though a roller coaster might not have been appropriate for young children and the elderly. Corey Burton performs every voice in the current version of the attraction, except for the usage of audio from the film.

One of the original Disneyland rides this attraction still offers a fun journey thru Mr. Toad's England. Youngsters get a few thrills (a train heads towards you) . Our 8 year old grandson...

The ride might not be long, but it's a lot of fun for little kids and big kids too. You ride on a track, in a car, through many, many, many twists and turns. Each turn pushes you through lots of doors, false walls, etc, in to different rooms as you follow the story of the old cartoon. The ride is lit by blacklight, I think. And there are some fun glowing visuals. The line is typically one of the shortest in the park because they move you through quickly. Hop right to the next ride! There are pretty short waits throughout the whole area.
This is a very basic ride but I just love it. We no longer have it at Disney World so to come to Disneyland and get to enjoy it it’s just wonderful! The ride is very simple but fun if you follow the story. I’ve heard it called the cardboard cut out ride which is actually true but you have to appreciate this ride for what it is.
