Hello! I need wise Liner input, please!
Trip dates: Tuesday, June 12 - Thursday, June 22
Resort: All-Star Movies preferred, room-only reservation
Tickets: 6-day base via Undercover Tourist
Travel party: me, DH, DS19, DS8
Celebrations! My 50th (5/27), DS19’s 19th (5/27), our 11th wedding anniversary (6/9), DS8 last day of school (6/9) and Father’s Day (6/18)
Touring styles: Park commando (me), go with the flow (everyone else). My younger usually gets up early with me. My teen could sleep all day. Hubs is a late sleeper, too, but he typically gets up early for Disney. I am trying to relax a little to accommodate (e.g., go slower, probably not the first to rope drop), without being foolish (e.g., unwilling to miss early a.m. touring to avoid heat and crowds). I’ve already told hubs it is ok for us to separate some time for all of us to do our thing. His style is to like to stick together but he’s ok with separating occasionally.
First question: Does anyone see any glaring problems with this plan? I know the parks will be busier on the weekend than the weekdays, but I am avoiding MK and EP on the weekend, HS is basically always busy, and I am thinking a good touring plan, and maybe G+ and ILLs, will help us achieve our goals.

Question 2: I want your feedback about my first MK day. I am using MK Day 1 as kind of a celebration day for the birthdays.
Capture Your Moment: 9:15
CRT breakfast: 10:00
Tour 11:30 - 1
Mid-day break 1-5 p.m.
Tour 5 - 8:30
Fireworks Dessert After-party Check in starts at 8:15, I am ok to let the crowd get ahead of us a little at the hub. Fireworks are currently expected for 9:15.
The dessert party, a 2nd EP day, and mid-day breaks are literally the only things that hubs asked to do. He hates the fireworks crowds and liked the dedicated space he had from our Thanksgiving night 2019 party.
Please tell me this looks like the start to a great day. We may not do a ton of rides but we will relax and enjoy ourselves in the MK. Tell me that we’ve got two days at MK, and we will have plenty of time to tour. Please tell me a park commando can change.
I’ve also considered having breakfast at 8 and bumping CYM to 9:45. Thoughts?
And I’ve considered moving the dessert party to my 2nd MK day to spread out the celebrations. More thoughts?
Thanks, Liners. I appreciate your input.
