Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

Walt Dated World Needs Your Help!!! (01/17/2018)

 The WaltDatedWorld channel has been on YouTube for 10+ years and has been in the YouTube Partner Program for the past several years.  The channel has had thousands of hours of watch time in the past year and has never posted any inappropriate content.

 The Partner Program provides funds that are critical to paying the hosting charges for the website.  Since the channel serves a small but devoted niche, there are currently not enough subscribers needed to meet the program threshold (there is also a watch time threshold but that has been met).

 The channel has until February to get 700+ subscribers.  Please subscribe to the WaltDatedWorld YouTube channel. If everyone that visits the website or follows the Walt Dated World Facebook or Twitter feed either subscribed or shared a link with their friends to subscribe, the goal could be exceeded in one day.  Share and encourage others to do so.  Please help a small niche creator who has done nothing wrong but has been wronged by the decisions of a large conglomerate.  You can get to the channel from any page on the site by clicking the icon on the top upper left of each page.  Thank you.

 Guests took on the role of Mr. Toad in this ride as they drove around in cars named after characters from The Wind in the Willows.  The ride had two separate tracks, unlike the Disneyland version, which has only one.  The two tracks at Walt Disney World were slightly different in the beginning but both would burst through a fireplace, visit a pub, drive past gypsies, and then crash into a train.  Not many attractions kill you with a train and then send you to a devil-filled Hell!  The song heard throughout the ride was Nowhere in Particular.  The effects (except for the train) were rather primitive and the painted-flat characters that appeared in the ride weren't even three-dimensional.  At one time, this ride required a C ticket.  The attraction operated until September 7, 1998.  It was replaced by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh on June 5, 1999.  Mr. Toad still currently rides on at Disneyland, although the ride is slightly different than the Florida version.

Hidden Mr. Toad Tributes

You can still find Mr. Toad in Fantasyland.  He's hidden inside the Winnie the Pooh ride in a picture, giving the deed of the ride to Owl.

 There is also a picture of Mole with Pooh hidden in the ride.

There is also an epitaph to Mr. Toad at the Haunted Mansion, as well as a statue in the Pet Cemetery.
