    Smile Which way around the World Showcase?

    Age old question on EPCOT's 30th Birthday - which way around the World Showcase do you tour?

    Personally I've always started from the left and Mexico. No reason, only that's the direction I first took and it's stuck ever since.

    I like starting with Mexico and going clockwise too. The countries get less exotic as you go round that way.

    Re: Which way around the World Showcase?

    I usually start in Canada, and work counter-clockwise. Why? I suppose since that's the direction I went my first trip, and I've done it the same way ever since.

    Yep clockwise for me too. Comming from the UK with a Canadian mother its much more fun t start in Mexico (my fave pavillion) and make my way home

    Sometimes I'll start with Mexico. Sometimes I'll start with Canada. And sometimes I'll take the Friendship boat and start at Germany/Italy or enter the park via the International Gateway and start with France or the UK. All depends on what kind of mood I'm in. I like to mix it up to keep it fresh.

    Re: Which way around the World Showcase?

    I'm trying to think if I've ever started at Canada. Think in all the times I've been I've only ever done it once. Just seems weird going "the wrong direction".

    Re: Which way around the World Showcase?

    I've always started with Mexico. This is mostly because it and Norway are the only pavilions with rides. Also I always start with Future World east because in the old days when Horizons and Motion were there I had 2 of my 3 favorite rides right next to each other. Now I start there because Test Track is there and I try to ride that before the line gets too long or grab a fastpass if there is a line. That makes Mexico first because it is the closest. I'm still pretty bummed I can't take my Dos Equis on the ride anymore. I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I want to float by a film of a guy desperately trying to sell me maracas.
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    Same here.
    I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.
