One day hopper help

DD (4) and my self are going to be in DL tomorrow ( Monday June 10th) with one day hoppers. I am trying to figure out the best plan to get as much done as possible in one day as we have never done less than 3. With just me an her SR is not an option for anything so we either hit it early, get FP and make the time work or we stand in line ( or skip it this time).

I am thinking of starting at DL at rope drop and hitting FL first thing ( I know the order well). What I am trying to figure out is how much we can get done before we need to hop over to DCA for what we want to get done.

So here is what I am hopeing for. DD wants to ride RSR this time so I do want to get FP for it of possible but don't want to waste the first bit of park time getting them so if we end up not getting them I can live with that. We won't be doing any thrill rides as DD doesn't really like them much and isn't big enough for Indy or screamin.

In DL must rides are
Star Wars FP if line is long
(that's my plan at rope drop)

other rides we must do are
Tiki room
Tiki room

And we will likely try to do princess FF as well.

DD likes iron man so we might look at innoventions if time allows or of crowds change the plan we come up with.

In DCA we want to do RSR if we can get FP after FL. The other cars land rides will depend on the crowds and we will do them if its not a big wait.

Other must do DCA rides are Soarin ( DD loves it)
Disney playhouse show
Jumping jelly fish is a maybe.

Maybe Turtle talk with crush if we have time ( DD was first picked to talk to Crush last time so Im sure she will want to see it but I'm not making it a priority

Maybe bugs land as DD likes it but she doesn't love it and I know she won't be upset if we don't get there. I have told her several times this trip is different than the others and we won't be able to do everything.
TSMM would be nice but we aren't rushing for it and won't stand in a long line for it so I don't expect to ride it ( only been on it once and it was just ok for us).

Rides she definitely won't do are ToT, Space, Splash ( has done it once but hasn't wanted to since and says she doesn't want to this time either. GRR is out she says, no GGC, no MH, BTMRR is closed so no worries about that. No Aladdin with only one day. We aren't worried about parades, or characters other than princesses.

I know we won't get it all done but I know we can get most of it done as we have done packed a ton of rides into one day alot.

If you had one day and wanted to park hop to get the most done what order would you do things and at what times would you change parks?

I've read that Mondays have been busier than some weekends do you think that will be the case tomorrow? The plan is to go until DD crashes and then heading out which my guess from past visits will be around 8pm. I have the stroller to save her from all the walking too and so she can lay down when she does crash.
I have snacks to keep her happy and will bring a water bottle for each and fill it up as we go so we will likely only stop for one CS meal and maybe some treats as we come accross them.

Any tips, suggestions, or things I have missed or not thought of that you notice?
