Vanellope von Schweetz and Judy Hopps head to the Picker's Circus and watch the star attraction, the Great Master. He introduces an anthropomorphic teddy bear named Teddy, who is scared of performing and feels she doesn't belong in the Picker Circus. This further causes her to accidentally wreck the show. The Great Master hires Judy to do a magic trick. When Vanellope sees Teddy disappear, she tries to find her and falls into the basement. After Teddy explains the circus took her away from her home in Teddy Bear Mountain, Vanellope agrees to take her home.
Meanwhile, an aggressive and single-minded security guard named Phil Franco tricks Judy into bringing Teddy and Vanellope to him. His true intention is to kill Teddy and put her on display. On board the Teddy Bear Mountain Express, they discovered that Tinker Bell has heard of their quest and came to join them. Upon reaching Teddy Bear Mountain, Vanellope accidentally wakes up a playful grizzly bear, but they narrowly escape, thus getting closer to the top of Teddy Bear Mountain. Judy berates Vanellope for endangering Teddy. As Vanellope, Teddy, and Tink head up Teddy Bear Mountain, crows kidnap Teddy and bring her to their leader, King Eagle, and his best friend, Buddy Crow. Tink informs Judy of this, and the trio saves Teddy and brings King Eagle and Buddy Crow just before the temple is demolished. Lots'o Huggin' Bear reveals that he was sent by Phil to bring Teddy to him. They fight him on a suspension bridge, and Lotso is tied up and falls to his death.
While Teddy, Tink, Eagle, and Crow sleep, Judy tells Vanellope that the Picker's Circus is Teddy's home and of Phil's intention to kill Teddy. Vanellope reluctantly tells Teddy she has to take her back to the Picker's Circus. Outraged by the bad news, Teddy angrily accuses Vanellope of betraying her and forming an alliance with Phil and abandons her. Hateful discrimination against Vanellope and Judy for kidnapping Teddy runs rampant throughout Disneyville. Downhearted by the consequences of her actions, Vanellope returns to Disneyville alone. Judy, having to have regretted explains to Vanellope that friends trust friends, restoring her confidence. They reunite with Teddy and reunite her with her parents Davidson and Dianne. Phil subsequently captures everyone (except Eagle, Crow, and Tink, who inform Beth Pierce and Lawrence Pierce of the situation).
Eagle, Crow, Tink, Beth, and Lawrence rescue Vanellope, Judy, Teddy, Davidson, and Dianne. Upon returning to the Picker's Circus, Vanellope tricks Phil into confessing that he will kidnap enough Teddy Bears to keep everything his way. As the police arrests Phil, the crowd condemns his tyranny and praises Vanellope as a hero for saving Teddy. Judy decides to permanently bring Vanellope to her subsequent circus trips. Teddy gives Vanellope a farewell hug, and Eagle, Crow, and her parents join the circus to live with Teddy. Vanellope, Judy, Hank, Beth, and Lawrence return home. The film ends with the citizens of Disneyville singing a pop version of the "So Long" song during the credits.
