Help me plan itinerary for Florida 2013

So next year myself and a very good friend will be visiting Florida for two weeks during July. I have been several times before but unfortunately my friend never has and so the pressure is on to make it an unforgettable and once in a life-time experience for her. We have booked to stay at the Buena Vista Palace hotel which is a five minute walk to Downtown Disney. I picked this hotel because it was a lot cheaper then staying at any of the Disney Hotels and offers free transportation to and from the Disney Parks each day. Plus its not too far in distance from SeaWorld or the Universal Parks. It also includes most of the benefits of staying at a Disney Hotel with the exception of Extra Magic Hours. But since Disney are cutting back on this service from 3 to 2 hours, I don't see this being a major disadvantage.

Now I'm working on the itinerary for the trip. It might feel a little to in advance for some but the way I feel is that a lot of the Disney Dining reservations and other things like Discovery Cove need to be made available from 6 months before you visit. So we only have really until January to plan out 2 weeks of vacation. I have already come up with the perfect first couple of days.

Day 1) Epcot, since we will possibly be a bit jet-lag from the flight. And so I don't want to do too much the first day. Epcot for me hasn't got a lot of big attractions that we are going to want to see. And so we can easily get these done by the Afternoon. That will give us time to then visit the World Showcase have a look at the shops and grab a bite to eat at one of the Restaurants. Before catching Illuminations.

Day 2) Discovery Cove is the plan on this day. We have already agreed to book both the Dolphin Swim and this new Sea Venture experience. The plan is to keep active and explore the park and its offerings. So not to bothered about taking time out to read a book or catch some sun. Because the park has an earlier closing time at 5.30 pm. I think we will head back to Downtown Disney and watch La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil.

That's everything planned and agreed up to now. I'll post some more of the itinerary soon. But I would be interested to know up to now what you guys think?
