    [..YouTube..] this seriously has to be one of the lamest thing that Disney has ever done. There are much better things that Disney could bring back then some stupid bird. Like Dreamfinder!

  26. [..YouTube..] I bet Dreamfinder will be back sooner or later.

    Anywho, Orange Bird was brought back for the 40th Anniversary of WDW and the MK. He was originally there.

    Dreamfinder ain’t as old.

    [..YouTube..] the 40th was last year and more people probably remember or know who Dreamfinder is compared to some lame bird, that wasn’t even a Disney charter.

  34. [..YouTube..] The Orange Bird is indeed a Disney Character, he’s just one of the lesser known characters. Look it Up

    [..YouTube..] he was created for the Florida citrus growers and there is a reason why he is lessor know. If it wasn’t for the “fan boys” no one would have know about it at all.

    [..YouTube..] To coment those coments that said lame. The Orange Bird is very nice little character. Dream Finder is nice character too, not certain he’ll come back though. If he does, it’ll be a real treat. Disney is getting there, maybe when he’s an older and more forgotten character. That’s why the Orange Bird’s return is so special, because close to about 45 out of 100 people don’t remember him.

    I’m glad the MK is getting back to its roots. I remember the Orange Bird when I was growing up. I’d love a citrus swirl bout now. And as a kid I remember I had a Orange Bird cup…god knows where it is now…35+ years. Guess I gota get a new one.
