Orange Bird Returns to Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom

Desktop Wallpaper Featuring Orange Bird, Returning Today to Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort

Great news this morning!  D23 representatives announced the return of the historic Orange Bird character live in Adventureland before a small group of D23 members and on twitter.

In case you aren’t familiar, Orange Bird was a character who was developed specifically for Magic Kingdom Park in the 1970s. This cheerful bird originally greeted families at Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland, where guests could also enjoy citrus drinks like the Citrus Swirl and buy Orange Bird gifts. At one time, the character even had his own record, which was released in 1971 to feature “The Orange Bird Song” – a tune penned by the Sherman Brothers (composers of the songs in “Mary Poppins” and “The Jungle Book”).

Beginning today, Orange Bird will return to Sunshine Tree Terrace signage and quirky drink cups, and a new line of Orange Bird merchandise has already appeared on the shelves!
