With a citrus slice next to him, Orange Bird looks both classic and fresh — ready for this year’s EPCOT festival. He can be purchased at The Citrus Blossom booth in Showcase Plaza with an orange-lemon smoothie in this souvenir cup. You will live your tropical citrus dreams as you sip your smoothie out of this cute little Orange Bird cup. This sipper isn’t all that this festival booth has to offer.

With all of these choices, how will you choose what to eat? If you are an Annual Passholder, there’s no need to choose! Visit the festival often and try everything. If you are only visiting the festival a handful of times, I would suggest writing down your favorite booths and favorite items to map out your menu. Make a whole meal out of eating these snacks and treats. Also, with any Disney vacation, it’s a good idea to organize your trip to maximize the magic. Contact our friends over at Academy Travel for a free quote on your next Disney vacation. They will plan out your schedule so you can enjoy Walt Disney World Resort stress-free!
