    Can't remember EVER having gone to the right... We always go to the left!
    And I've read that it's suggested you go right, 'cause most folks go left...!

    It just feels natural to head towards Mexico, riding Gran Fiesta is a great way to start off the Showcase tour.

    I think people go right because it's like you're driving. Walking on the right side of the walkway leading up to WS, then just following the path around starting with Canada, eh.

    Re: Paths to World showcase

    Is it true that you can get in to Epcot for free by using the back way?

    Not that I'm condoning it or anything, I was just curious because I've heard that before.

    No preference, depends on our mood at the moment.

    Although there are other WDW resorts that we love, i.e. Animal Kingdom Lodge, we have become spoiled by the convenience of the Beach Club and it's proximity to both Epcot/World Showcase and the Studios. Usually arriving mid to late afternoon, by the time we get settled in it's time for an early dinner at Cape May's Clam Bake and then we stroller over to World Showcase, slip in the back gate, in time for IllumiNations.

    We've actually gone both ways on given trips.But most of the time we go to the left and start with Mexico.occasionally we will go to the right and start with Canada.Either way is fine with us.Just being there is what is most important.

    We always start in Mexico, but that's so we can end up in China for lunch.

    I ALWAYS start with Mexico, although I've also read that most people do this, because people like to travel through parks in a clockwise motion. I've never taken the boat across, because then eventually you'll have to backtrack to see everything! I do also love using the "secret entrance" (as me and my sister have always called the International Gateway), especially at night when all the trees are twinkling...

    I'd say we seem to go clockwise.... no real reason for it though, just kind of depends what ride we have come off.

    Definitely Starting at Mexico. It's not really an impulse thing, that's the way we went on my first trip, and I always seem to plan dining, entertainment, etc. around that route.
    The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!
