    Couldn't agree more!

    We typically go whichever way the wind blows us :) as long as it blows us towards a nice, cold drink :)

    If it helps ease your OCD somewhat :) you need not stress, both are correct.

    In Commonwealth English, anticlockwise is the correct usage, in North American English, counterclockwise is the more normal use.

    Given we're all one big Disney family on here, either one is more than acceptable :yes:

    I rather enjoy the unique differences between the two versions of English. :yes: Is it soda, pop, tonic, or soft stuff? All depends upon where you are from, eh?

    Is it a lift or an elevator? Tights or stockings? A run in your stocking or a ladder in your tights? :D

    I get a big kick out of the differences and learning them. I've actually used some as examples when teaching adults the importance of being sure one communicates clearly and understands what the other person is saying. :yes:

    it depends what time i get to world showcase and where/what time i am eating. last trip i had a ressie for my birthday lunch at Teppan Edo for 230 and arrived at ws about 1130a. so i started in Canada and paced the time to get to Japan about 20 min before my ressie. another trip i had 6pm ressies for Le Cellier so my friend and i took the launch across the lagoon, got off near Germany and walked toward Canada...after dinner, we kept going around the lagoon toward mexico norway china, then got back to mexico in time to get a table and sit for Illuminations

    so my direction is decided by plans
