Pop disney question? Why are the lights called osborn lights???

Very good question. If you don't mind I'd like to add a follow up question to yours. Did you know there is a Halloween Cat hidden every year in the Osborne Lights display? Do you know why?
- jacdanfan  8426.3 #5 4:18AM
When Disney picked up the lights from the Osborne family a purple Halloween Cat from the Osborne Halloween light display was mistakenly taken with the Christmas lights. When the display was originally set up at Disney the cat was there so they used it not knowing it was there by accident. So now every year when setting up the display they hide the Halloween cat in the light display for people to try and find. I understand this year it is well hidden. This is all from memory but basically the story I heard/read. The Festival of Lights display is a must see this time of year! - jacdanfan  8426.3 #5 5:16AM
Idk the answers to any of these questions. I can't wait to read the answers - Schramke  494.8 #15 4:30AM

Because Jennings Osborne put them up for his daughter, the neighbors complained of the "nuisance". Disney offered to purchase the display for several years, however must have extended the contract because the are still around - Thankfully - Betsyboo  21.5 #155 4:55AM
From Disney's website blog: The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights started modestly in Arkansas as a single home's annual display. Every year, Jennings Osborne and his family set up an elaborate collection of holiday lights and over the years, the collection of lights grew, and grew... and grew! In 1995, the Osborne family decided to share their magic with the world, and Walt Disney World Resort happily offered to become the new permanent home for this exceptional exhibition of holiday cheer. - DizneyGirl  711.9 #7 4:57AM
That's great info! But why the cat? - Schramke  494.8 #15 5:08AM
Sorry Schramke, forgot that part, :) - DizneyGirl  711.9 #7 5:13AM
From hiddenmickeyguy.com: It seems that when Mr. Osborne shipped his lights to WDW, an outline of a cat was mixed in with the regular lights. Each year, the Cast Members hide this cat in a different place along the Streets of America. - DizneyGirl  711.9 #7 5:12AM

I believe the Osborne Family used to put up these light on their property in Arkansas, but the neighbors kept complaining. They were asked not to have so many lights. They ended up giving them to WDW. - ally  509.2 #12 5:23AM
So neat I never knew about the cat! - justGoofin  146.1 #53 6:36AM
I didn't know about the cat. We will be there for the last day of lights so I'll have to try and look for it - disneyrunmom  221.2 #1630 7:29AM
