The Orange Bird sipper cup with a straw returns to the 2023 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival at Disney World. Find out how to get this beloved Orange Bird merch below.
If there’s one item that’s always a draw at EPCOT’s festivals, it’s the newest popcorn buckets and souvenir sippersmade in the likeness of popular characters! In years past, EPCOT’s Festival of the Arts has seen lines as long as 7 to 8 hours just for the Figment popcorn bucket; similarly, lines can quickly grow during the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival as Guests wait to grab an Orange Bird sipper each year. For the 2023 Flower & Garden Festival, the Orange Bird sipper is back – and we’re sharing tips on how you can get one of your own.
So if you only have one day at Flower & Garden, how do you get the Orange Bird sipper, and where can you find it?
Where to Get the Orange Bird Sipper Cup
You’ll find the Orange Bird sipper at the Citrus Blossom food booth. For the 2023 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival, the Citrus Blossom booth has moved – it’s now located inside The Odyssey, which sits in between Test Track and the World Showcase’s Mexico Pavilion.
Be warned: The Orange Bird sipper is limit two per guest.
How Much Does the Orange Bird Sipper Cup Cost?
When you purchase the Orange Bird sipper, you’re getting more than just a souvenir cup. You’re also getting the drink inside it. This year, it’s the Orange-Lemon Smoothie. (This is a non-alcoholic beverage.) In total, the Orange-Lemon Smoothie inside the Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup costs $15.
For the 2023 Flower & Garden Festival, you also have the option to pair your Orange Bird sipper with the adorable Orange Bird Little Golden Book. Together, the souvenir sipper cup and Little Golden Book cost $19.
Is the Orange Bird Sipper New?
This year’s Orange Bird sipper is not the same Orange Bird sipper that we saw at the 2021 and 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festivals. Instead, it’s a brand-new souvenir sipper that features .Orange Bird holding a replica of a souvenir sipper that was available at Sunshine Tree Terrace in Magic Kingdom Park back in the 1970s. It’s almost like a two-in-one sipper! The Orange-Lemon Smoothie inside is poured into Orange Bird’s head. Take a look at the brand-new sipper below!
However, even with its new design, it’s unlikely the sipper will drum up the same insane levels of excitement we saw at Festival of the Arts with the Figment popcorn bucket. It’s worth noting, though, that this is a festival-exclusive sipper. You can get another Orange Bird sipper regularly at Sunshine Tree Terrace in Magic Kingdom, but the Magic Kingdom sipper is missing the decorative orange wheel.
Tips for Getting an Orange Bird Sipper Cup
For the 2023 Flower & Garden Festival, Disney has announced Mobile Order is available for the Orange Bird sipper! You can check the My Disney Experience app to place your mobile order so you can skip the lines and get your souvenir (and the smoothie inside) without a lengthy wait.
Can’t get a Mobile Order placed while you’re at the festival? Here’s the best strategy to get your Orange Bird sipper if you do need to wait in line:
- Make the Citrus Blossom booth your rope-drop destination.
- If lines are long, take turns waiting in line with friends or family. Send a few to ride Test Track, then swap out so others can hit up Remy or grab a margarita.
- If you also want the Spike the Bee sipper, split your party in half. Half wait for Orange Bird and half for Spike. The two booths are very close to each other.
