Nine-year-old Annie Sandoval is going to Adventure Camp with her friends Joan Alyn Lind and Berlioz Breslin. In Disneyville, It is summer. Vanellope von Schweetz and Judy Hopps are swept away by a portal to Adventure Camp. Annie loses her backpack and jumps out to of Ben the bus get it back. Her loud 'HEEEELLLP!" call gets the attention of Vanellope, who follows Annie's call to investigate. Annie finds her backpack and a surprised Vanellope inside. Vanellope introduces Annie to Judy. They go camping with her as an exchange to help her get back to Adventure Camp.
As they explore, they see a rare conifer cone (Annie's favorite) in a pine tree. Judy attempts to remove the pine cone from the pine tree, and they escape just before the pine tree falls. The next day, they continue on their way, and, after an encounter with the Leaf Men, a tribe of archers made of leaves, escaping quicksand, and fishing (during which she is pulled into the river by a salmon but is saved by Vanellope), they head to an island where they enlist the help of its inhabitant chipmunks to help them build a big raft, which is destroyed when they fall over a giant waterfall, forcing them to travel on foot.
Vanellope, Annie, and Judy are excited to find Adventure Camp in the distance, but disappointed to find out that night has come. Annie calls the owner of Adventure Camp, Mr. Marks, who agrees to pick her up in the morning. Annie forms a bond with Vanellope and Judy. In the morning, the camping trip is about to end, so Mr. Marks drives the trio to Adventure Camp. The Leaf Men appear, wounding Annie and, when one is about to slay her with a spear, Joan and Berlioz, aboard Mr. Marks' horse, fight off the Leaf Men. Annie expresses her love for Berlioz, who reciprocates, and they share a kiss. Vanellope, Judy, Annie, Joan, and Berlioz make it to Adventure Camp.
Annie reunites with her friends and family. She sings, "There Is Life", and the cast sings with her. At the time when Ben arrives to drive the kids home, Annie bids a farewell to Vanellope and Judy. Back in Disneyville, Annie reunites with Vanellope and Judy, revealing that she and her friends have decided to spend a camping trip with them in Disneyville.
