Disney’s Orange Bird Character
Disney’s Orange Bird characters was created in 1971 as a mascot for a partnership with the Florida Citrus Commission. Orange Bird appeared in various places in Disney World’s Adventureland area and in ads for Florida oranges. Eventually the character faded into obscurity when Disney and the Florida Citrus Commission ended their partnership in 1987.
But recently Disney decided to revive Orange Bird! You can find him back at Adventureland at Sunshine Tree Terrace where you can snag yourself a souvenir Orange Bird cup and more.
