      Left! The Firetruck picks you up on that side! One of our favorite things to do when entering the Park!
      Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
      it's what they are like in their HEART!

        WOW, I thought the ONLY way was to enter Disneyland was on the right (east)side and out on the left(west) side. The bathrooms are on the right on the way in, and my wife always needs a bathroom.
        But it's more than that... Entering on the right allows me to see the west side of townsquare, such as city hall, the firehouse(and apartment) and the whole townsquare from the east. Hence, the sun is at my back and I can take it all in, in one breathtaking view.
        If I enter on the west side, I am seeing city hall, the firehouse and Walts apartment and townsquare so close-up that I can't really appreciate them the way that I think they were meant to be seen, as a wonderful :bow: snapshot of Mainstreet USA. Plus, entering on the west side means that if I look to the east across townsquare that I will be squinting into the sunlight .
        Try it sometime from the right side, you might be suprised.

          I believe you'll find a similar poll and discussion in the archives. There seems to be a definate preference for the left side (near the firehouse) entrance. I find myself leaning this direction. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the fact that we approach the turnstiles from that side and head toward the nearest tunnel. Though, time when I've entered a turnstile nearer the righthand tunnel, I still feel myself drawn to the left tunnel. Somehow it feels "wrong" to enter from the right. (I guess if this is the extent of my OCD, I'm doing OK.) I also think you get a better first look at Main Street from the left tunnel.

              Actually, Circ... it's good that you always go in on the right and I always go in on the left. It creates a critical balance. Otherwise The Matterhorn would fall down and Harbor Blvd. would disappear into a large sinkhole.

                  I figured there must have been a poll in the archives, but for us newbies it is the first for us.
                  I think the REAL REASON is that the left side has Walt's quote, "To all who enter, Welcome.." I can't remember it! Does anybody remember the exact quote? Now, if that plaque is on the left what was the reason? Why wasn't there a plaque on the right side too? Also, when you enter on the left side, you receive a small amount of pixie dust! So, to all of you, (including Circarama.), either you come to Disneyland so often you don't need any more pixie dust, or you like to rebel! hehehe

                    Always go in the left and out the right. I believe this comes from a childhood obsession for doing the entire park clockwise, starting in Adventureland and ending up in Tomorrowland (after dark of course). Yes, I'm taking medication now...

                      I always enter at the right and exit at the left. I guess I'm not the only one since the last minute sovenier shop is on the left side.
                      I guess i do it this way because it makes me see GM w/ Mr. Lincoln. Ok, makes is a bad way to put it, maybe I'll say it prompts me...lol

                                    I "sort-of" miss the pirate ship. When I was a kid, I always wanted to go in and eat, but my parents were thrifty and we always had a home-made picnic instead. I always figured that when I grew up, I'd go on my own.

                                      Thanks for the statistics!

                                      It has been nice seeing people's responses to my poll. I don't exactly know why people are drawn to the left, (because you all had different reasons), I too prefer the left, in and out. The last time I visited DL, I made the mistake of going to the right and I felt weird, like I "snuck in or something." I feel like the next time I go, I need to rectify this by doing a quick loop around and then go back in the correct way... Well, at least in my little world, life will be restored. If you are there in Sept./Oct. be on the look out for this guy running around the berms when they first open for the day. Thanks again for all who participated! :bow:

                                        Here is my reasoning, I go in to the left which is City Hall side and exit right hand side which is Lincoln's side. The reason THE STROLLERS and the Crazy mothers making the mad dash for them, I stay clear from them.

                                          I tend to go left because I'm used to the right being congested with stroller/wheelchair business.
                                          And because I'm a diehard liberal.
