The Orange Bird Sipper at Epcot

This little guy is soooo cute!

March 13, 2019 Update:  The Orange Bird sipper has sold out just one week after the 2019 International Flower and Garden Festival opened!

Disney has ordered more but it will take 3 weeks to restock them!

We are so disappointed.  We planned on having our brother buy 2 for us this weekend on his day off!

😦

The star of the 2019 International Flower and Garden Festival is this adorable little Orange Bird Sipper.  He’s a cutie!  ❤

Orange Cream Slushy, $14

Limit 10 sippers per guest (that will cost you $140!).

The wait line at The Citrus Blossom booth to get one of these sippers filled with Orange Slush has consistently been about an hour.

There’s citrus-flavored food available at The Citrus Blossom booth too…including Lobster Tail!!!

Disney only ordered 45,000 Orange Bird sippers for the 90 day Festival that runs into June this year.  That’s 500/day.  Right now, they’re selling 3x that many a day.

They will run out before the Festival ends on June 3, 2019.

Adventures in the Animal Kingdom

Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!

This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier.  Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life.  On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.

Now that she’s back, things get wild.

Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental.  While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.

While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.

Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.

Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!

Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
