Feed Back on our 1st WDW trip & DxDP!

Background: We are a family of four, myself, DH DD(turning 5 at WDW) & DS2.5.
We are doing our first WDW trip for DD's 5th birthday after our first ever cruise, 3 days on the Dream.

We arrive at the YC on a Sunday morning for 4 nights. I have done the math & out of convenience of meals prepaid & the fact that DS is free, so he can share most of his meals with us, we have decided to do DxDP. I like the 6 snacks per day, figure if we fill our mugs 2xper day & do the plan of attack below, I will be getting a pretty fair deal. DH wants/has to have 3 squares a day, plus have a break which for us is sitting down & relaxing during our meals. I love to snack, get goodies & try any and everything, so snack credits won't be wasted. Plus, again, we are only paying for 3, but really getting food for 4. So, please tell me what you think. I am starting to doubt my ressies, and know that I am overthinking much of the trip. (Becoming addicted to DIS isn't helping either! )

Sunday (EMH for HS)
Breakfast: On the Dream!
Lunch: Beaches N Cream
Dinner: Mama Melrose's, Priority Seating for FANTASMIC!

Monday (EMH MK)
Breakfast: Buffet at Captains Grille 7:30am
Lunch: CS at Columbia House OR The Plaza
Dinner: Cape May Café Seafood Buffet
Back to MK until 12am.

Tuesday DD 5th BIRTHDAY ! ! ! (EMH Epcot, which we will probably skip )
Breakfast: CRT 8:20am
BBB @ 12pm
Lunch: Cosmic Rays OR LTT
Dinner: BOG 8:20pm

Wednesday: (EMH AK again, we will probably skip AK completely)
Breakfast; Crystal Palace
Lunch: ? ? ? CS or The Plaza
Dinner: Whispering Canyon Café

Thursday: Go Home (eat a quick something in Lobby and then at MCO. Have to be on ME at 7am)

Anything you would change? Do different? Or tell me that it is perfect?!
We aren't sure how "tired" we are going to be after getting off the cruise, but figured lunch at YC, maybe a quick swim & naps & then HS for the evening. We really probably won't do much at Epcot, except walk around a bit one day, and will probably skip AK, just because I figure we will have plenty to do at MK. Am I wrong? We also got PH, but am worried that might be a waste? Esp, because people say it is harder to take the monorail from Epcot to MK, which I thought would be a good plan.
Also, I know CS isn't a great use of credits, but even using a couple I still save a few dollars & just the off chance we decide against sitting down for an hour for lunch. I also picked so many buffets bc DS is free & bc we can get out quicker, but still have a good variety.
Thoughts are welcome!
Greatly appreciated!
And many thanks to you all!
