TTT ~ Merry Christmas!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia_thumb

Special thanks to my friends – Jodi @ Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Mike @ My Dreams of Disney, and Jennifer @ Disney Babies Blog – for co-hosting this fun meme!

Did you know? In 1995, Walt Disney World purchased The Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights from the Jennings Osborne family in Arkansas; and brought it to Hollywood Studios.  That holiday season, more than four million lights adorned Residential Street, making it the third largest attraction in the park!  Since then, the show has grown to over five million lights, and Disney has enhanced the spectacle with free holographic glasses and nightly “snowfalls”!

My family has yet to enjoy this “spectacle” but we hope to do so next year!  (For more on the backstory of this attraction, see Lou’s book – linked  below.)

*This week’s trivia tidbit comes from Lou Mongello’s The Walt Disney World Trivia Book: Secrets, History & Fun Facts Behind the Magic (Volume 1) – previously reviewed on my blog here.

I used to teach a girl who is related to the Osborne family and her mom told me great stories of going to WDW each Christmas to view the lights with Jennings and his daughter! They are so beautiful! :)
