Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights Cat

 Did you know this Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia about the Cat in the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights?

It’s a beautiful time of year at the parks, this past Saturday we spent some time under a heavy downpour admiring the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.   As we neared the entrance to Lights Motors Action we spotted this years hiding spot for the Osborne Cat.   Did you ever wonder why this cat is in a Christmas display?

As you know the Osborne family started the light tradition in 1986 with only 1,000 red lights.   The display grew to 3 million lights in 1993, because of the size of the display and the crowds it caused the family was faced with court battles to shut it down.   Luckily Disney approached the family about bringing the display to the parks and now at over 5 million lights we all get to enjoy it every year.

But, what about this cat, well when the trucks loaded up the display a cat from the Osborne’s Halloween display was mistakenly loaded.     The team at Disney was prepared to send it back to the Osborne’s but the family said just to keep it and rather than throw it out the team at Disney decided to have some fun and hide the cat in a different spot each year.

Can you spot the cat?

  • I saw the cat when we were there a few years ago. I love that they hide it each year!

  • Finally got to see this in person for the 1st time, and I’m still awestruck! Good thing I live nearby now, so I can go again & again & again! Had to have a CM hint to the cat’s location, but we found it.
