Attention all Disney World fans! There's some exciting news coming out of Orlando: Disney has released a preview of what Toy Story Land will look like once the attraction opens on June 30th at Hollywood Studios!

According to WDW News Today, the entire experience is meant to make you feel toy-sized as you explore Toy Story Land. A concept video teases one ride guests will soon enjoy, the Slinky Dog Dash family coaster. Um, I take it that means a scardey cat like me can ride it!

The idea is that Andy, the kid in the movies, made the track himself in his backyard, using his Mega Coaster Play Kit.

The other planned feature is Alien Swirling Saucers, which mimics the toy Andy got at Pizza Planet in the first movie. As you swirl around, "The Claw" will be trying to get your vehicle, captained by aliens in their own toy saucers! Sounds like a lot of fun, and something that would make my kids hoot with laughter.

Kathy Mangum, a creative mind behind the concepts, told WDW News Today Toy Story Mania is also going to be enhanced with a third rail.

All those thrills are sure to work up an appetite! Make sure to check out Woody's Lunch Box, the quick-service restaurant serving up full meals and old-fashioned floats from a walk-up window that resembles an opened lunch box. Sponsored by Bel Brands USA, the fun eatery is the ideal spot for kids!

All in all, sounds like this is a can't-miss destination for any family visiting Disney World. The problem is there's just so much to do and see, you almost have to move to Orlando to check everything off your bucket list! Hey, a mom can dream, right?
