Cut orange peel into matchstick-size strips. Cut vanilla bean in half lengthwise to expose seeds. Scrape seeds into saucepan; add pod, orange peel, orange juice and sugar. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer until syrupy, about 10 minutes. Let cool.

Meanwhile, cut top and bottom off pineapple. Peel; with tip of paring knife, cut out eyes. Quarter lengthwise; cut out tough core. Cut pineapple into chunks. Place in bowl.

Peel oranges; cut off outer membranes. Holding oranges over pineapple to catch juices, cut between membranes and pulp to release segments into bowl. Add vanilla syrup. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) Discard vanilla pod.
