As Walt Disney World fans I am sure you must be slightly familiar with the character, the Little Orange Bird. A great article from Widen Your World can be found here to refresh your memory, as it did mine.
I am seeing the Florida Orange Bird to be quite the icon of early Walt Disney World, and Florida at the time. It's something that can be rooted directly with Walt Disney World, not originally from Disneyland or anything in California.
Disney apparently still owns the rights to the character- It has been used in Tokyo Disney merchandise recently.
What other Disney character do you know that comes with such a catchy tune?
@TheDisneyBlog tweeted today that some shirts featuring the character were spotted in The American Adventure's shop.
This character would be a great candidate for a featured icon for a Walt Disney World 40th, 45th, or 50th Anniversary Celebration. It also would be a good argument to clean up our Tiki Room.
What do you think?
