In a small bowl, add pineapple juice. Sprinkle gelatin over juice; let sit 5 minutes. Microwave gelatin mixture about 15 seconds, or until dissolved completely. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Very slowly add pineapple-gelatin mixture. Stir in coconut. Pour filling into pie crust. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or until set.

In a large bowl, add whipping cream; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in powdered sugar. In a large bowl, combine orange-gelatin mixture, orange zest, orange and vanilla extract, and mandarin oranges. Fold orange mixture into whipped cream. Spread orange filling over coconut-pineapple layer. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or until set.
