Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

July 1955; rebuilt May 1983

In late 1994, Disneyland management briefly toyed with the idea of frequently doing cosmetic overlays of rides to make them topical. As a test of that plan, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride became Mr. Simpson's Wild Ride, commemorating O.J. Simpson's famed flight in a white Ford Bronco. The experiment was considered a dismal failure, and the ride was restored to its original appearance after only a month.

Due to a quirk in official Disney vocabulary, Disneyland cast members do not consider Mr. Toad's Wild Ride to be a ride, but an attraction. So if you ask a cast member, "Can you tell me where Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is?" you'll get the answer you want, but asking "Where is the Mr. Toad ride?" will just get you a blank stare.
