Experience doing Early Entry for Peter Pan?

We rode Mine Train, Pooh and THEN Peter Pan last week during early entry and still only had a 10 min wait for Peter Pan. The fastpass line really slows things down at PP so as long as you arrive before the end of early entry (when people can start redeeming LL, you won’t have a long wait. The new queue is cute to spend a little time in anyway. My 5 year old liked it just as much as the ride itself.
No kidding! That’s amazing!!! How far in advance did you arrive prior to EE starting?

We were lined up by the Mine Train rope drop about 15-20 min before opening. One caveat, this was on an 8 AM official opening day (7:30 AM early entry), so it was likely a much less busy day bc of the evening Halloween party. But I still stand by my opinion that as long as you arrive at Peter Pan before regular opening and LL redemption starts, you won't wait long at all. I don't know if you visited the MK when there was neither FastPass nor Lightning Lane, but without either one of these, the line for Peter Pan really moves.

For Early hours, just a reminder that rides do break down, or if there is bad weather Dwarfs won't be running... Throwing that out there because when Dwarfs is broke or just down, it changes the whole flow. Also, it was similar when Peter was down when I was in line. It doesn't hurt to keep that in mind, esp. if you have kids in tow. Don't stress over it, but just give it a thought.

We were in MK on Sept 6, the day after a party day. We were there for ETPE (probably middle of the crowd) and went for PP, but it was down. I knew that was a possibility. We went to ride Pooh, then came back and it must've just opened. the CM was telling folks it would be a 70 min wait already, but I knew that couldn't be true. We waited 20, so not too bad. Also I hadn't seen the Darlings' house in the queue in a long time, so it was really fun to experience that. We rode again after fireworks with LL. Our 1st LL of the day was Mickey & Minnie at Town Sq. Totally worth the time savings there!

This happened today, changing everything about flow. On a non-MNSSHP day with 9am regular opening time, so extra busy too. We got off Peter Pan nearly 1 hour later at 9:25am with posted 80 minutes wait.

Mickey isn't available for EE and is such a far walk from PP I'd deff be getting a LL for that. Especially with the way the lines have been because of him and Minnie and the anniversary outfits.
