Disney, in its quest to prove you're never too old to play with toys, has released new details about the Toy Story Land attractions heading to Hollywood Studios. 

On Wednesday, the Disney Parks Blog announced details for two new rides planned for the toy wonderland.

In Toy Story Land, the blog says guests will find themselves shrunk down to the size of toys to explore Andy's backyard with some pint-sized friends, including everyone's favorite cowboy and space ranger combo, Buzz and Woody.

The first new attraction is the Slinky Dog Dash, a family-friendly roller coaster attraction. The backstory behind the coaster is that Andy has built all over his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit combined with some of his other favorite toys, according to Imagineer Kathy Mangum.

The second attraction will be the Alien Swirling Saucers, inspired by the little green space creatures from Pizza Planet in the first Toy Story film. During the ride, the aliens will fly around your rocket toy vehicle in space saucers, trying to grab you with "The Claw." 

An official opening date for Toy Story Land has yet to be announced. 

If you can't wait until then to get your toy-fix, staring Memorial Day weekend, the park's current Toy Story attraction, Toy Story Mania, will be expanding with a third track to allow for more guests.
