Critique my itinerary: 2 weeks to go!

First timers (well second time for me, but my first and only WDW trip was in 1989 when I was 10) are going to WDW with a 3 year old and an almost 5 year old. This is our plan. What do you think???

11/11 Flight arrives at MCO at 11:40. Check in to CSR. Head to MK. CS linner at MK. Spectro and Wishes. Park closes at 8.

11/12 Epcot. 10:30 Akershus breakfast; 6:50 Biergarten dinner.

11/13 MK. Arrive ~ rope drop. Dinner at the Wave at 6:45. Park closes at 7 (what time should we leave for dinner?)

11/14 AK. Dinner at Sanaa at 5:35

11/15 DHS. Lunch at Sci Fi (OOP). Dinnera at Pepper Market. Return to DHS for EMH (Playhouse Disney Dance Party)

11/16 Epcot. Dinner at Coral Reef at 4:15 (I picked an early seating to reduce the wait)

11/17 MK. Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare at 8:30. Leave MK at 2. Magical Express at 3ish. Flight leaves at 6:05. Flying Southwest so no resort check-in.

11/13 MK. Arrive ~ rope drop. Dinner at the Wave at 6:45. Park closes at 7 (what time should we leave for dinner?) At least 30-45 minutes before. Just in case. I always like to be a little early, just in case something goes woring.

11/14 AK. Dinner at Sanaa at 5:35

11/15 DHS. Lunch at Sci Fi (OOP). Dinner at Pepper Market. Return to DHS for EMH (Playhouse Disney Dance Party)

11/16 Epcot. Dinner at Coral Reef at 4:15 (I picked an early seating to reduce the wait). I always like to eat an early dinner. 4:30-5 is the perfect time for an ADR, IMHO. Hey!!!! We're eating there at 5:30!!!!!! Now that I think about it!!!

11/17 MK. Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare at 8:30. Leave MK at 2. Magical Express at 3ish. Flight leaves at 6:05. Flying Southwest so no resort check-in.
Your plans look pretty good to me!!!!! Hope you have fun. We'll be there the 13th-20th.

I am not a WDW expert by any means...but I have been there about 8 times in the last couple of years so I do know a bit...there is sooooooooooo much to know..where to start?..I have been asked twice this year to help newbies plan...the first time I winged it..the second time I typed it all down in 5 WORD documents...if you or anyone else would like to see them just send me a PM and I would be happy to share...have fun at the Happiest place on Earth..I will be there about a week after you...

I think your plans are beautiful and not over-planned, like so many newbies try to do!!! You aren't bouncing from one park to another and then to 2 resorts in one day and that's fantastic! I hate when I see people over-plan and I can see that they are going to be doing too much running and not enough enjoying. About your Wave reservation, considering that MK closes at 7, I would get out of there around 6:30 to avoid the crowds. From MK to CR it's about a 7 minute walk and the monorail could take longer, plus the time to walk up there.

Hope you have a magical trip and let us know what you thought of Sanaa!! I have a reservation for Sanaa for this Fri but I'm unsure if I'll stick to it or not cause we are only doing 1 TS for our 4 day trip

Thanks all! I can breathe a sigh of relief! I finally developed a basic itinerary that passes the DIS test.
