It seems they were there on the 6th, and seem to be back now. I know about the 6th because I heard a guy at Epcot telling a friend he had just seen the family there.

If they are speaking English ( I think they are)and have to also put subtitles for people to understand them, that is just wrong.

We were getting off Popeye and my kids went a second time. My husband said people were snapping pictures that he saw them enter the ride. They came out just before our kids and proceeded to the dryers, they were not filming at that time but there were a few of them and what appeared to be bodyguards I guess? my husband was trying to tell the kids who they were and I politely suggested he needn't bother And we carried on as it was dark and we were soaked (around 6pmish?)!

Accents can be hard, though. When I lived in SC I found that you can say oil the usual way, or "ohl", or even "earl". My dad is from Denver, an he says "warsh" instead of wash. People from the suburbs of Seattle sometimes mix up vowels so they say "pellow" instead of pillow, and pen vs pin can be confusing. Just last night a CM i met from small town NC said that people in her town would put firemen in nativity scenes because the wise men come "from afar", and afar sounds like how they say "a fire". She swore it was the truth and is one reason that caused her to leave her hometown.

Accents are hard. I appreciate captions
for heavy regional accents, even when they are speaking English. Now, I don't watch HBB, but still...

I call BS on that. So, not only is she implying that the regional accent makes "afar" sound like "a fire," but also that the people in her rural, NC town are too moronic to realize that firemen were not in the manger when baby Jesus was born.

We don't put firemen in our manger scenes here in our rural NC town. And I've not seen any "farmen" in any other NC-based manger scenes.

Thank her for leaving, for me.

You are just going to have to talk to the CM then. She stuck to it even when I asked the question of why they hadn't read it. An when I insisted "you're kidding right?" a few times.

I know from living in SC and visiting NC that some residents can have some SERIOUS accents, and I have definitely heard fire come out as far, and just like everywhere, not everyone is actually intelligent. I met many people during that time who indeed had not read any bit of the bible (it was only during my time there that I spent any time in churches so that might well be something that happens everywhere as well but I don't KNOW), letting their pastors educate them verbally, and therefore could only be going on what they hear.

Just because you have not experienced it doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

The person I heard say "earl" for oil flummoxed the little cricket attendant as well. She knew him but didn't know what he wanted! Which was my whole point, that some regional accents are SO strong that they do need captioning!

Just being in Orlando right now and meeting so many people from England is showing me its not just here, either. We met one guy whose accent was just like Ricky Gervais' accent, really easy on the ears. Others have been a little tougher. And when I watch British shows like Sherlock, I watch it with captions on. So I see nothing shameful or odd about there being captions on a show like HBB.
