Plot

On the New Year's Eve after the events of the third filmVanellope von Schweetz, Judy Hopps, Hank, Sheriff Woody, and the gang head to the Disneyville Library. Woody tries to read a book but is ridiculed by the kids, because he has not met a cowgirl, saddening him. Later, Vanellope, Woody, Judy, and Hank meet a cowgirl named Jessie, and her horse, Bullseye. Jessie and Bullseye decide to take them to the Wild Wild West. Woody is stoked to have found a cowgirl, but since the Wild Wild West happened a long time ago, he refuses at first, but with urging from Vanellope, Judy, and Hank, he reluctantly accepts.

Jessie and Bullseye lead Woody, Vanellope, Judy, and Hank to a magic wooden box, where they receive a book about the Wild Wild West. Reluctantly, Woody wishes they could go there for just one day of fun and adventure, causing the book to transport the box containing Judy, Hank, Vanellope, Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye there. The group travels to the town of Western Oates meet the sherrif, Bulb Shandling, his daughter Kennedi Shandling, wife Janet Shandling, and the mayor, Stinky Pete the prospector, who give them a tour, although Stinky Pete rumors that Jessie spreads insanity, and suspects the "new guests" might be worse enough to endanger Western Oates.

A trail of fun across Western Oates spreads, with activities such as making chocolate chip cookies, attempting to rope a fence post to no avail, and holding a first-class cowpoke sing-along. During this time, Woody and Jessie grow closer. The group goes to the railroad museum, where a bandit named Krei Overkill breaks into the museum and kidnaps the Shandlings. Upset that the fun has practically led Krei to them, Stinky Pete accuses Vanellope, Judy, Hank, Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye of "spreading insanity" and exiles them from Western Oates. Jessie vows to save the Shandlings and prove herself as a hero, but after an argument with Woody that ends with him insulting her child-like nature, she parts ways with the gang, and she and Bullseye set out on their quest by themselves.

As Vanellope, Woody, Hank, and Judy prepare to return to Disneyville for the New Year's Eve party, Jessie and Bullseye approach Krei's hideout, where they find out that Stinky Pete was actually Krei's boss who posed as the mayor of Western Oates just to keep everything his way. They are discovered, and Jessie is captured and put with the Shandlings in a locomotive headed for a pit. Bullseye escapes and informs Woody. Regretting what he said during his and Jessie's argument, Woody, along with Vanellope, Judy, and Hank, sets out to save Jessie and the Shandlings, and they pursue the runaway locomotive. Stinky Pete steals the gold, destroys the bridge with dynamite, and gets away with Krei. While Woody frees Woody and the Shandlings, Vanellope applies the locomotive's brakes, and in seconds, the locomotive stops just in front of the destroyed bridge.

Vanellope, Woody, Jessie, Bullseye, Judy, Hank, and the Shandlings capture Stinky Pete and Krei and head back to Western Oates, where Jessie forces them to surrender, exposing Stinky Pete as the "insane" one. With the bad guys in jail, the Shandlings free, and the Wild Wild West saved, the townsfolk praise Vanellope, Judy, Hank, Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye for their heroism, with the Shandlings calling them "heroic and loyal heroes". Jessie and Bullseye decide to stay with Woody, Vanellope, Judy, and Hank, and they pull out the Wild Wild West book and wish to go back home, causing the magic box to bring them back to Disneyville. Back home, Vanellope, Judy, Hank, Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye return to the library in time for the New Year's Eve countdown. Vanellope, Judy, Woody, Hank, Jessie, and Bullseye share their Wild Wild West experiences with everyone as the new year begins.
