The Academy of Sciences is definitely a better aquarium than the one at the wharf but it is pretty expensive at about $29 per adult. It is relatively small and easy to do leisurely within two hours. Definitely cab is best. Check the times of events for your day of the week ahead of time to maximize your trip.

The Ferry Building is great for local foods for a snack or light lunch.

Your walking plan sounds perfectly doable but there really won't be anything special about the Disney store that you can't find elsewhere unless you are looking for San Francisco themed disney gear.

The street performers and "peddlers" will not bother you for tips. They stand there and do their act with their can/hat/jar in front of them. The "bushman" is funny to watch and that is the most I have ever been approached by anyone in that area and I've lived in the Bay Area for twenty years.

Depending on the ages in your group Alcatraz tours are very popular as well. The Disney Family museum is not good for kids. Lots of history, lots of walking, lots of reading.
