Jessie's Critter Carousel

It’s been almost a year since King Triton’s Carousel was closed for good, but Jessie’s Critter Carousel is ready to ride! As of Friday, Apr. 5 the Western-themed Toy Story merry-go-round that’s packed with creatures from “Woody’s Roundup” is open. The ride sits adjacent to the newly redesigned Incredicoaster just over at Pixar Pier.
