Who is Edna Mode?

Edna Mode is a hotshot fashion designer of German and Japanese descent in “The Incredibles” and “The Incredibles 2.”

She also just so happens to be the creator of the famous red super suits the Incredibles wear amongst other famous super heroes in the movie, like Frozone. Edna is a super popular character and is best known for calling everyone “Dahling (darling)” in her mesmerizing accent.

Edna doesn’t have any superpowers but she is the most talented fashion designer able to design superhero costumes that pair well with the superheroes’ powers.

This itself is a serious task for only the sharpest, most creative and talented of fashion designers! Take a look for yourself with a few examples of her superhero creations that you can see for yourself by visiting the Edna Mode Experience at the massive Disney World!

3 Most Iconic Edna Mode Quotes

I must admit this was a hard one to narrow down to the three most Iconic Edna Mode Quotes, but I think I did good!

These three quotes are in my opinion the most memorable and famous Edna Mode sayings that you’ll find yourself reflecting back on or remembering while watching the movie or waiting in line for the Incredicoaster!

The Most Iconic and Meaningful Edna Mode Phrase!

“I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.”

Edna Mode Incredibles

This is one of the best quotes from the Incredibles, in my opinion. The meaningful quote from Edna really paints into perspective how much we lose by focusing on the past, and how it causes us to miss out on the present. So by never looking back, she can always focus on the now!

The Best Funny Edna Mode Quote!

“No Capes!”

Edna Mode The Incredibles

Okay, this has to be one of the most funny Edna Mode quotes, that we have found and it iconic! I mean who knew how many Superheros bit the dust because of their capes getting caught in objects like a jet turbine or moving machine!

When I watched this movie I was so shocked that she was against capes at first but after seeing why was because how the cape caught on to distators things, I was like 💀 makes sense.

The Best Lesson Quote From Edna

“Luck Favors The Prepared”

Edna Mode the Incredibles

When I heard this quote from the Incredibles, I was just a little kid and never realised how meaningful it was, growing up we always think lucky is just luck and random. But like Edna said, “Luck favors the prepared” and that definitely changed my perspective on life as I got older.

What Is Edna Mode’s Catchphrase?

Edna has a lot of memorable phrases and sayings, but I would have to narrow it down to either “no capes” or “Dahling”. Between those two, “Dahling” stands out the most because she says it a ton and its so cute how she says it too!

So, Edna Mode’s Catchphrase has to be “Dahling” and you’ll see why after you go through these funny Edna Mode Quotes lol.

Meeting Edna Mode Tips!

Arrive Early! We got to the Edna Experience around 10, and there was a 15-minute wait, that went down to only 5 after I had finished. However, I noticed the wait time got bigger and bigger the few times I passed by to check.

If you love Pixar, then this area is a great spot to catch other cool characters like The Incredibles, Frozone, Sulley from Monsters Inc., and near Toy Story Land you’ll catch Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and Jessie from Toy Story!

If you’re a solo traveler, the cast members can usually take a photo of you with your phone. Just ask nicely.

If you just want a photo of Edna, then you can ask if you can just take photos of her and then Edna will pose for you! That’s what I did!

You can also just use the photographer there who will ask you to ink your account after via your magic band or app =).

Where Is Edna Mode’s Statue in Disney World?

The famous Edna Mode of course gets her own Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary gold statue! If you have no idea what we are talking about then you can read all about the gold statues spread across Disney World by reading our Disney World Gold Statues Locations Guide!

Anywho! If you’re on the hunt for Edna Mode then you’ll be delighted to know that she is pretty easy to find.

You’ll need to head on over to Disney World Hollywood Studios, after that head on down Hollywood Boulevard past keystone clothiers and near dockside diner.

If you see the statue of a man recording, then you are super close, Edna Mode will be on the patch of grass near Frozone with echo lake to their backside.

She’s posed in her iconic stance, almost like she’s thinking but also almost like she’s judging based off those poofy lips and hand positions.

P.s. It’s rumored that Disney World is removing the 50th anniversary sign and keeping the statues! So you’ll be able to see this iconic statue for a bit longer! I honestly hope they just decide to keep all the gold statues at the parks.
