But, he’s already flown into Disney World a bit early in a brand new spot to welcome guests to the parks (and show off how cute he is).

Imagineer Zach Riddley has given us a sneak peek at the latest mural appearing in the Magic Kingdom. And, it’s got two of our favorite things — Orange Bird AND Dole Whip! The image was designed by Senior Concept Designer Chris Gardner before being painted in the Magic Kingdom by Artist Abdul Delgado.

Orange Bird first flew into Disney World when the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971 as the Florida Citrus Commission sponsored the Sunshine Pavilion. The area become known to fans as the Enchanted Tiki Room (the Tropical Serenade back then) and the Sunshine Tree Terrace, which is home to the famous Citrus Swirl.
