Disney Parks After Dark: Meet J. Thaddeus Toad at Disneyland Park

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride is where I learned to drive. Yes, I know you don’t really steer the car, but to a young boy, it sure seemed like I was. So the next time you are in Fantasyland at Disneyland park, take a spin through the English countryside and see if you can find your inner child at Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.


The photo above of J. Thaddeus Toad was taken sometime ago, but is still a favorite of mine.

Here’s the camera setting if you are interested:

  • I wanted to use the available lighting so I set the ISO at 5000.
  • The lens was a 16-35 mm at maximum aperture of 2.8 and a 1/30 shutter speed.


  • Mr. Toad has always been really special to me. I used to ride it with my Dad every time we were at WDW. It was a sad day for us when it closed! I always make sure to take a selfie with Mr. Toad at Disneyland now. He’s the best.

  • Great photo! Love the Mr. Toad ride at Disneyland. One of my favorite Disney Attractions.

  • Still a favorite of mine. I can’t wait to visit again and go through Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, but it will probably be a year before I do.

  • Initially, W.D.W.’s version let you really steer the car.
