Orange Bird Goes Golden for the 50th Anniversary

Thinking orange thoughts has always been Orange Bird‘s way to communicate, but now he’s scheduled to be shining through Magic Kingdom’s birthday celebration in the form of a golden statue. Found on D23’s Instagram page, we get the first look at our favorite fowl’s debut in gleaming gold.  The caption on the introductory video reads,

“We’re thrilled that our very own Michael Vargo, Head of D23, announced today that Orange Bird will soon be part of the “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection” at the @WaltDisneyWorld Resort during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” starting October 1 #DisneyWorld50”
