Ridemax,Space Mountain and Peter Pan

My ridemax plan has the fast pass runner (me) going to Space Mountain first thing to get FP's while the main group is going to Peter Pan Flight. Will I miss riding it? What is the quickest way to get to Space Mountain?

TIA

The code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules

That is usually what we (I) do. Send your fastest walker (you) solo up Main Street and like MK make a sharp right into Tomorrowland. Space Mtn at DL is sort of where COP is at MK. So hug the right side of TL, head into the Space Mtn queue area, then reverse course back to the hub and to FantasyLand.

Your party should head straight to PP and wait for you. If you are near the front when they open the park you will have a 5-10 wait for PP.

An easier FP to get is Star Tours as the FP machines are much closer to the hub. If ST is in your plan I would be inclined to get ST FPs rather tham Space Mtn FPs if you are in a hurry to PP.

I would get ST FP first as they tend to run out faster.

Just have your party wait at the Peter Pan line entrance for you. It is definately not a "come join your party" queue line. You may end up waiting 10-15 minutes - just walk fast

Maybe ride PP 1st and then pick up a FP for ST of Space, while everybody heads on to their next ride... Dumbo...

We do want to do Star Tours too! I feel like it makes things a bit more difficult because we have two of our party (my parents) in ECV's. So I am trying to get in on as many tips as possible !!!

Thanks for all the input so far, you guys are the best !

I agree with Disney Momma. ST has slowed down A LOT - by the time you get off of PP your return time for ST will still be short.

I think you would make the best time all going to PP first. Then get FP after. I doubt the return time will increase much in that time.
Space is a very long walk to the FP machine. Those few minutes will increase your PP by at least 15 minutes.
Even Star Tours with that extra minute will probably cause 5-10 minutes extra at PP.

I noticed that you said that your parents are in ECVs. I wouldn't worry too much about the line at any of these attractions. None of the lines are wheelchair friendly. Only get a FP for the attractions that your parents are unable to ride. Both ST and SP have those in wheelchairs board at the exit.
To ride Peter Pan, just go to the exit and they should be able to have you ride within a few minutes.
