I find it an incredible coincidence that someone else is enquiring about a 'best' edition for a Widor movement - albeit it a different one to the one I'm after (Symphony No. 2 - Finale) - having spent a few hours last night and this morning investigating the very same thing. It is clear from Fiffaro's post (26) above and from what I've researched online that the most reliable edition is John Near's (A-R Editions), and purchasing the acclaimed scholarship direct from the publisher - including international postage and packing - is slightly cheaper than buying a French edition.
Toccata From Widor's 5th Symphonie

There is a manuals only version arranged by Christopher Tambling in "Essential wedding music for manuals" published by Kevin Mayhew. It won't deceive any organist who knows the real thing but is quite effective if asked to play it (as I was) on an organ with no pedals.
