Nine-year-old Annie Sandoval is going to Adventure Camp with her friends Joan Alyn Lind and Berlioz Breslin. In Disneyville, Vanellope von Schweetz, Judy Hopps, Hank, Sherrif Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl, Princess Anna, Queen Elsa, Olaf, Nick Wilde, and Wreck-It Ralph are swept away by a portal to Adventure Camp. Annie loses her backpack and jumps out to get it back. Her loud 'HEEEELLLP!" call gets the group's attention, and Vanellope follows Annie's call to investigate. Annie finds her backpack and a surprised Vanellope inside.
Vanellope introduces Annie to her friends. They go camping with her as an exchange to help her get back to Adventure Camp. As they explore, they see a rare pine cone 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 escaping quicksand, go fishing. Annie's big fish pulls her into the water and she starts to sink, but Vanellope dives in and uses her strength to pull her to the surface.
During this time, Vanellope and Annie form a bond. After having great times together, Annie, Vanellope, and the gang hike toward Adventure and follow a river leading to a giant waterfall. With their combined efforts, Judy, Hank, Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Nick, and Ralph save Vanellope and Annie.
When the camping trip is ending, Annie calls Adventure Camp creator Mr. Marks, who sends a ranger to bring them back to Adventure Camp. They activate the GPS on the jeep while Judy stands on the roof on the lookout for Adventure Camp. Sure enough, they see Adventure Camp, and with the help of Joan and Berlioz, the car stops--right in front of Mr. Marks. Annie reunites with her friends, parents, and grandparents, and she and Vanellope sing "The Camp I Go To". Vanellope and Annie hug goodbye, and Vanellope and her friends head back to Disneyville. To their surprise, Annie appears, revealing that she and the campers decided to spend another two-day camping trip in Disneyville.
