(KGTV) — Saddle up! California Adventure is bringing even more "Toy Story" fun to visitors of Pixar Pier.

The pier's next "Toy Story" attraction featuring the adventurous, yodeling cowgirl "Jessie" is now open. Guests can hop on one of Jessie's "crazy critters" fans will recall from the second "Toy Story" installment.

"Our guests can ride one of Jessie's crazy critters around the wild west to save the prospector," Walt Disney Imagineering's Debbie Fonzlaez, creative director for Pixar Pier, says. "We fell in love with the crazy critters you see in 'Toy Story 2.' ... and we said what if we took those and made these characters three-dimensional so our guests can ride them."
