Something I'm trying to do for myself is build in expectations of rest--in the past I've been really commando at Disney, and in the past I've always gotten sick from the trip. That didn't happen in Disneyland when I had my housemate with me demanding that we take breaks and take naps--I came back from that trip perfectly healthy! I also had more stamina for the time we did spend in the parks.5 AM flight, straight to MK, evening EMH until 1 am, I think. I'm going to try to nap before the dessert party.
That's just the 1st of 8 consecutive park days. Ha!
I've set a rule for myself that every day I need to start late, start early but take a break, or start early but leave the parks early in the evening (that last one's probably never going to happen tbh; that's just not my style). I also have a day scheduled mid-trip when I'm deliberately scheduling my ADR and FP+ with the expectation that I'm going to sleep in and won't be in the parks until at least lunchtime. So I would not say no to a first day like yours! I'd just build in time the next day (or the day after next at the latest) for some catch-up sleep.
