    Bit of a random question but thought I would ask anyway.

    What direction do you usually walk around WS at Epcot? Do you have a certain way around you do it or do you just go with whatever?

    Not sure why, but we go counter clockwise. I think so we can cheat and go ride the Mahlstrom in Nordstrom!

    9 times out of 10, we head anti-clockwise around WS. I am sure it is just to get to England quicker :hehe:

    We only go the other way if we have a reservation in Norway, see an obnoxious family going anti-clockwise just in front of us - or if we enter from the Beach/Yacht area to get back to our resort bus.

    Depends on what i'm there for. Generally we go counterclockwise, but like I said, it depends on why I'm heading to WS

    We normally start off in Mexico, as we figure many start in Canada, so it's quieter for the 1st few countries :hehe:

    We break left when we start out.....typically heading straight to Norway because the girls are doing a Kim Possible mission. Those all start there, then we zig zag all around saving different countries :lol:. If the girls are NOT doing a KP mission, then we still break left and just go around the loop :yes:.

    I'm sure we've done both but mostly start at Mexico and continue from there.

    I wonder if anyone favours the boat across the lagoon to start?

    Never tried the boat.

    For us it depends on where we are dining at, what time or whether we enter from IG or not. If Im honest it depends on how soon I need a frozen Margarita :wink:

    It really varies for us, we just go whatever direction we feel like going on that particular day.

    We start off at Mexico because we usually just get done using our fast passes on Test Track around 11:00 when WS opens.

    It depends on where we're going or if we're staying in a Boardwalk hotel.

    Never tried the boat before. We always start off with Canada and end with Mexico.

    If we aren't hungry, we'll start with Mexico, gotta do the boat ride. If we are hungy, we'll take a right, and head to the bakery in France!

    Anti-clockwise for us too - no particular reason.

    We always start with Mexico. I think it is because I feel there is not as much shade in Future Word at Epcot and by the time WS opens I am ready for a dark cold break!!!! After reading this post I think that I should start in Canada and walk against the traffic, maybe I'll make bettter time!

    We have started the other way but I'd say most times we go clockwise and start in Norway. Not really sure why we do that to be honest, its just what we do instinctively, I think the odd time we have gone the other way has been a concious decision, if we just wander we always go Mexico way (perhaps because the rides are there so maybe thinking that if we go the other way, by the time we get to Norway and Mexico the queues maybe longer)
