Orange Bird Returns to Sunshine Tree Terrace at Magic Kingdom Park on May 29

I’m delighted to share the Orange Bird is returning to the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park starting May 29.


You may recall my fellow author Pam Brandon sharing in March that Aloha Isle Refreshments and Sunshine Tree Terrace swapped menus and locations. Starting Friday, guests will again find the Orange Bird figurine that was reintroduced to Adventureland in 2012. He is also being added to the marquee for the location. Finally, Orange Bird will be prominently featured in a new attraction poster found at Magic Kingdom Park.

To celebrate, we are offering the poster as an adult and youth T-shirt on our Disney Parks online store from May 29 to June 4. An Art on Demand canvas wrap and print will also be available online. Please allow 3-5 weeks for delivery.

You can order these items by visiting DisneyStore.com/ParkEvents.

I think I’ll welcome him back by having a Citrus Swirl.


  • Will they bring back the orange bird ear hats?

  • Hi Steven – Are there any plans to offer extended sizes in these type of shirt offerings. I know the shirts take 3-5 weeks to ship. So I would assume they are print on demand. Why not offer larger sizes to accommodate more people. Something to think about for future promotions.

  • I am so excited about this shirt, I am just curious if AP gets discounts online.

    • @Whitney – At this time, Annual Passholders do not receive a discount on our Disney Parks online store.

  • When can I see him as a character in the park? I love the idea that he was created to support Florida orange growers. We need more of that type of cross promotion in this world.

  • Any chance these are available at the park too? I can’t wait 3-5 weeks for delivery!

    • @Heidi – There are no immediate plans to carry this shirt at Walt Disney World Resort. We are only offering it online until June 4.

  • Will there be an Anita Bryant t shirt to go along with the Orange Bird shirt?

  • My daughter will be thrilled. She loves Orange Bird and has all of his pins. Looking forward to seeing him again in November.

  • James’ wife here – Terrific news, thanks!
    We just recently returned from a stay at WDW, and no sooner did we get home did I then order online the cute ceramic figure of Orange Bird.
    I plan on surprising my husband and giving him it for Father’s Day. (so maybe I now need to get ordering that adorable tee as well!)
    LOL, it’s the least I can do since I got to go to Animal Kingdom, ‘Ohana and Magic Kingdom on Mother’s Day!!!
    Always a kid at heart!
    <3 WDW!

    • @James’ Wife – I’m glad to hear you had an awesome visit. Sounds like a perfect gift for Father’s Day.

  • Please also bring back the Iced Coffee Float to the Sunshine Tree Terrace. Now it is only served as Iced Coffee without the Vanilla Ice Cream.

  • I love this bright & cheerful design; just ordered a t-shirt and poster to hang in my kitchen.

    • @Michelle – I’m glad I’m not the only one who smiled when I saw the artwork.

  • Fantastic design!

  • Welcome Home Orange Bird! Steven- Any chance the ladies fit option can be offered? Please and Thank you. 🙂

    • @Angela – Thank you for the comment. I don’t know of any plans at this time for a ladies cut. I’ll share your feedback with the team.

  • Hurrah for all things Orange Bird!

    • @Trinna – Hip Hip Hooray! 🙂

  • Yay!! I *love* the Orange Bird. So much so that the Orange Element I drive, is nicknamed Orange Bird and reflects that on her license plate.

    So glad she is back.

    • @Jill – That’s perfect!

  • Thank Goodness!
    I was so disappointed when the little guy was not there last week!

  • Once again I have to dip into that “Steven made me do it” line item in my budget. LOVE the shirt, and I can’t wait to see Orange Bird when I visit next week!

    • @Kuleen – I hope you have a wonderful trip.

  • I am glad to hear little Orange Bird is back at home. 🙂 I can’t wait to see him and enjoy another delicious Citrus Swirl in November! 😀

    • @Bob – Hope to join you in November for a Citrus Swirl 🙂
