April 17, 2012 – The Orange Bird Returns to Walt Disney World

Orange Bird

“Little Orange Bird in the sunshine tree, won’t you think of something sunny just for me?”

On April 17, 2012, the official Disney fan club D23 announced in front of a small group of members that the Orange Bird would be returning to the Magic Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World. Designed in the 1970s as a mascot for the park, the bird was located in Adventureland’s Sunshine Tree Terrace, where citrus drinks were made available. In 1971, a song was written and released by the Sherman Brothers, called “The Orange Bird Song.” In addition to adding new merchandise featuring the quirky character, a statue created in the 1970s was brought back, standing proudly above the Sunshine Tree Terrace.
