Orange Bird Returns to Magic Kingdom

When WDW opened in 1971, Orange Bird was a sort of Florida-themed mascot that populated the pavilion that eventually grew up to be the Enchanted Tiki Room.  But, as things tend to do, the park and its attractions evolved, and Orange Bird went the way of the dodo.

Starting earlier this year, however, Orange Bird has been making a reappearance on signage and merchandise.  Perhaps it won't be long be we get to see the character again.

It's nice that see that, despite the ever-continued changing and expansion of WDW, that renewed efforts have been made to preserve some nostalgia.  Though the one main constant in Disney may be change, it is refreshing that at least some of the experiences we enjoyed as youths can still be shared with our children.

More on tradition in the World later this week!
