The Orange Bird (Disney Classic)

  • The Orange Bird is a small bird resembling an orange, or possibly an orange with the features of a bird. Created for the Florida Citrus Commission, in the original story, the Orange Bird used to live up north in the United States before deciding to migrate to Florida for its high quantity of citrus to eat. Namely, at the Sunshine Tree Terrace of Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom. Unlike other birds, the Orange Bird is incapable of singing or speaking and instead communicates with orange-colored thought bubbles. He is mocked by other birds as a result of this and Orange Bird generally looks for friends wherever he goes. You can learn more about the history of the character from Disney Historian and Artist Stacia Martin in our video below!
