I would think Disney would have to get script approval anytime an ABC sitcom wants to bring their show to Disney World which makes me surprised they allowed the episode to air as it did not show the park, in my opinion, in the best light. As I tried to watch it as an outsider from the parks, it looked like a place someone who is not as familiar would find it too crowded, hard to navigate, cost prohibitive (they kept saying how it was out of their normal budget), and tough to keep families together. Did the family fight more than normal families do? Yes. But the opinions and choices they were all airing are actual conversations had at the parks.
You just said everything I wanted to say! Right down to wanting a hat!As someone who watches the Middle regularly, and someone who waited for this episode, I wasn't disappointed. The storyline was true to their usual scenarios - the Hecks try hard to be that perfect family, but something always goes wrong, but in the end the find that happy middle ground where they fight, but they see the good in what they do have. We the continuity errors terrible? To those of us who know every aspect of the parks and can immediately spot 'where' they filmed, even the smallest aspect can cause some of us to point and scream....but to the average person who has been to WDW once or twice, they didn't notice anything.
All in all, enjoyed the show. Made me want to get on a plane and go! (and maybe get a hat like Brick....)
