Jessie’s Critter Carousel at Disney California Adventure’s Pixar Pier

This new attraction is themed around Jessie, everyone’s favorite yodeling cowgirl of the Toy Story films.


Cartoonish animals on Jessie’s Critter Carousel — a rabbit, turtle, raccoon, even a buzzard!

It features 56 whimsical desert animals — snakes, armadillo, turtles, rabbits, skunks, buzzards, owls and more, drawn from the cartoon world of Woody’s Roundup.
