First draft plan!

So this will be my FIRST trip to WDW! We are about a month out and will be in a cars suite at AoA from Saturday-Saturday. My MB are customized and arriving at my house today. We are driving from Va, myself, hubby, and three kiddos-11,9,&7. Soooo excited!!!
So my plan may be overly ambitious BUT we have 6 day hoppers and no ADR's (totally our choice). We are not at all big eaters and plan to eat cereal in the room (like every other day except I am insisting on Mickey waffles at least once! Sandwiches and raw veggies in the parks for lunch, and whatever for dinner. I cook pretty healthy so my hubby will be THRILLED with a week of burgers and pizza!!
Anyway, we plan to arrive near WDW Friday night so we can get up and go Saturday! HS is a red day but its the only day of Jedi training so I would like to get there first thing (extra magic hours) and get a time slot for that. Depending on our time slot, afterwards I'm thinking AK until 8, then MK for the light parade and wishes.
My plan for Sunday is MK all day until 7 (its party day and a green day), then HS for 8-10 magic hours to see Osbourne lights if we haven't had enough yet!
Monday, HS all day, then maybe MK for extra magic hours if we aren't pooped!
Tuesday, epcott for extra magic hours at 8am until it gets busy, then MK or HS.
Wednesday we will be at Universal for my Harry Potter fan daughter.
Thursday, epcott all day, hopefully will get to see candlelight processional.
Friday, our choice to do whatever we want to do again!
Saturday.....leave for home sweet home!
So, what do you experienced people think?
FYI, hubby and I are laid back and go with the flow (although he likes to max out "doing everything possible" whenever we go on a trip) and kids are super high energy so I don't think they will wear out easily. Example, I recently took them on a steep 7 mile hike and they were still RUNNING at the end of it!
Haha and just as I finished typing that my MB showed up. No kidding! Yay!!!!

What a fun trip you have planned! I love the laid back approach. Only little tip I have is if you haven't already familiarized yourself with maps and rides give these cheat sheets a once over. It will help to be able to navigate the parks maples and to have a ride priority list in your mind.

Ooooh thank you so much for that! I feel like I've got a pretty good base plan as far as which parks which days, but keep forgetting I need to look at maps to see where rides are so we won't be going back and forth all day. These will be super helpful, especially since I just scheduled some fastpass + rides.
