Daniel Tiger takes a trip to the Neighborhood carnival where he wants to ride the Ferris wheel with Miss Elaina. Despite his excitement, he feels nervous to board the ride. After some encouragement from Mom Tiger, Daniel decides that he isn't ready to ride the Ferris wheel yet.

Prince Wednesday and Daniel Tiger play a ring-toss game but find difficulty winning. Prince Wednesday is happy to be playing but is frustrated by the challenge of the game. Daniel encourages his friend to keep trying and Prince Wednesday is awarded a container of bubbles when he finally wins. Daniel make-believes that he is floating over the carnival inside a bubble.

Deciding that he is ready for the Ferris wheel, Daniel boards the ride despite feeling nervous. The entire Neighborhood can be seen from the top of the Ferris wheel.
