Sunshine Tree Terrace

Walt Disney World has confirmed that the Orange Bird character first seen at the Magic Kingdom in the 1970s is to make a return to the park.

The Orange Bird was originally installed at the park following its 1971 debut, in order to promote the Florida Citrus Growers Commission. In addition to promoting orange produce, the bird also acted as the official mascot for the Enchanted Tiki Room attraction.

Speaking to a small group of members of the D23 fan club, Disney representatives have now confirmed that the Orange Bird will return on signage at the Sunshine Tree Terrace drinks outlet in Adventureland. The character's likeness will also appear on a range of merchandise, including drinks cups and t-shirts.

The Orange Bird merchandise is already available at the Magic Kingdom. The character was originally dropped by Walt Disney World in 1987, but has been brought back due to demand from nostalgic fans of the resort.



Now, I have been a Disney World fan all my life, but Im only 16, so its so amazing when I hear about Disney history that comes back in flying colours - forget about the new, we wanna bring back the old! :D

The orange bird looks like a wonderful additition to Adventureland, and I cant wait until Theme Park Tourist gets over these and shows us all the merchendise available! :D I also here he has his own song, so Id be very excited to hear that be brought back onto CD etc.

From this Disney lover, I am very excited,

Rob :D

P.S This post lets me realise that Disney has ANOTHER Youtube channel, on top of all the ones Ive seen already. Has anyone else realised this?! :D - they have so many! Does anyone know how many they have?
