by | Dec 17, 2021 | Disney Springs, Magic Kingdom, WDW Blog, WDW News

Attention, Mr. Toad fans. You can find a plethora of Mr. Toad photo spots at Disney World if you know where to look.

As part of the 50th celebrations, along with the Fab 50 statues, Beacons of Magic, and vintage eats (that Toad Burger though …), Walt Disney World gave us some wild photo opps to celebrate the cult classic Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

So, grab a blue bowtie and let’s get snappin’. Here are all the Mr. Toad photo spots at Disney World.

1. Mr. Toad Photo Spot at the Vault Collection Shop, Magic Kingdom

For those of us who visited the parks before 1998, seeing a snazzily dressed Mr. Toad and that vintage car is like reliving moments from our childhood.

Disney has brought back the nostalgia as part of the 50th celebrations with this classic Disney World photo spot featuring the one and only Mr. Toad.

You’ll find it in Magic Kingdom at the Vault Collection Shop on Main Street, U.S.A.

This store is quite popular and often has long lines. If you’re just looking for the Mr. Toad photo op, pop in the front door of the store with your camera out so your fellow vintage fans don’t think you’re trying to cut the line.

You can also grab a friend and reenact the climatic scene in the film where the characters are in Toad Hall fighting over the deed.

🐸 Mr. Toad Trivia: What is Mr. Toad’s full name? Mr. Toad’s full name is J. Thaddeus Toad Esq.

2. Mr. Toad Photo Spot at the Vault Collection Shop, Marketplace Co-Op, Disney Springs

In the original movie and on the ride, Mr. Toad has a fascination with the motorcar. In fact, Mr. Toad is framed for stealing a motorcar, and that’s how he almost loses Toad Hall.

The motorcar plays a key role in the story of Mr. Toad, and this is what makes the second Mr. Toad photo op so epic. It’s one of the ride vehicles from Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

Having a ride vehicle that was modeled directly after the motorcar from the film is pretty unique. Riding in that beloved motorcar as we tore around Toad Hall, the town plaza, and the terrifying train collision—it immersed us even more in the world of Mr. Toad.

Head to the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs in the Vault Collection shop to find the ride vehicle photo spot. This is the perfect place to grab your own Cyril and Mole and hop in the car for a pic.

However, it is a popular spot for folks to rest their feet while shopping at Disney Springs. Try going early in the morning or in the late evening if you don’t want to beg a fellow guest to give up their seat for your photo.

This photo spot and shop are also part of the 50th celebrations, so speed over to get the shot before it’s gone.

🐸 Mr. Toad Trivia: What is the full name of the Disney movie Mr. Toad first appeared in? Mr. Toad first appeared in the Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, which brought together a series of short films including the Wind in the Willows, in which we meet the vehicle-wielding-amphibian.

3. Mr. Toad Photo Spot: Haunted Mansion, Magic Kingdom

This last of the Mr. Toad photo spots at Disney World is available even outside of the 50th anniversary goings-on.

When exiting Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom, look in the cemetery to your left. Hanging out in the cemetery is a Mr. Toad statue.

This is not going to be your best-posing-with-Mr.-Toad location, but love that the statue is so detailed, you can even see Toad’s vest and bowie.

🐸 Mr. Toad Trivia: While it’s not an actual photo op, you can spot a nod to Mr. Toad in Journey Into Imagination with Figment. Your favorite dragon is dressed as Blue Boy and Pinkie in portraits framing his fireplace. Shout out to our fan, Greg R., for this fun find!

Nothing Quite Like Mr. Toad at Disney World

Mr. Toad was an opening-day attraction at Walt Disney World. It closed on September 7, 1998 with much fanfare.

Despite being closed for more than 20 years, it’s still talked of fondly, remembered by Disney fans, and makes regular appearances in popular merchandise collections.

Why the continued love? One reason may be the one-of-a-kind nature of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Walt Disney World. The ride had two tracks, but each track had a different storyline.

Toad was around before the days of Instagram, blogs, and podcasts so you just had to be in the know that it was worth waiting in line twice. Can you think of any other attraction in all of WDW that has this unique feature?  

Tributes to a Beloved Opening-Day Attraction

Beyond the Mr. Toad photo spots around Disney World, you can find other tributes to Mr. Toad.

One fairly terrifying but photo-worthy example is the Toad Burger. If anyone can capture the wackiness that is Mr. Toad and his crazy dreams on his ride, it’s Disney chefs.

This burger is part of the 50th celebrations and is at Friar’s Nook at Magic Kingdom. It really does feel like it’s starting into your soul, trying to get you to hand over the keys to your car …

A less nightmare-inducing tribute to Toad is in the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction. This attraction was built on the same spot where Toad used to take you on his wild ride.

There are two shout-outs to the previous occupants of this space in Owl’s house. There’s a framed picture on the floor of Pooh and Mole.

Mr. Toad: Gone But Not Forgotten

“We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things because we’re curious … and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney

We all have that favorite attraction, show or magical experience that we wish Disney hadn’t changed. But Walt always imagined a place that would keep changing. That no two trips to a Disney Park would be the same.

So, grab that Toad Burger, hit up one of Disney World’s Mr. Toad photo spots during the 50th celebrations, and thank the Imagineers for cleverly paying tribute to this beloved attraction.
