DDW Pic 596. Orange Bird
One year ago, today, the Orange Bird returned to the Sunshine Tree Terrace in the Adventureland section of the Magic Kingdom. The Orange Bird was a walk-around character back in the 1970's. He was developed as the official mascot of the Florida Citrus Growers, and was an interesting part of Adventureland for about a decade. This miniature version of the bird was returned to his perch at the Sunshine Tree Terrace on April 17th, 2012, as part of a special D23 event. I was privileged to be present at this event, which included appearances by several prominent Imagineers.
