We decided to do the MVMCP either on the Sunday or Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
I need some advice/tips on devising a plan for the evening (does touring plans have one? I can't seem to find it if they do).
We will be eating in the park at 5:00. After dinner, what should be our itinerary?
(We will be in the park earlier in the day also as these are our 2 mk days). I plan on doing the 1st parade and then Wishes (our kids would probably not make it to the 2nd parade without being miserable). Where and when should we stake out spots for the parade then the fireworks? We will be doing several character meals, so I don't want to stand in line all night for characters, but would like to do a few if the lines aren't terribly long. Our kids will be 9, 7 and 5-any of the shows not to miss? I am hoping to find spots for the parade that would require the least amount of wait time since 2 of my children have autism and waiting for extended periods sometimes (usually) doesn't work out well. How about rides? We've never been in the MK after dark, any of them especially cool at night?
Thanks so much for any help as I try to come up with a plan for this nighth
We made seeing characters a priority, so we were first up at princess hall to meet rapunzel, Flynn, prince Philip et al. After that we saw belle in her red dress. We also saw the faries, captain jack, and the seven dwarves. We missed the Tremaine after making the mistake of trying to ride small world between their sets (its a long ride!). A lot of the characters went to bed by 9 of 9:30,I think, so after that we saw the parade and wishes and spent a few minutes dancing with Woody and Jessie and then Goofy and the chipmunks. It was a fun evening.
Tuesday should be quieter than Sunday....I would try for the mid week party instead. Personally, I would focus on what is unique to the party such as the shows, parades, fireworks, dance parties and them fit in the rides around those.

I'd go with the Tuesday party, as I think it'll be quieter. To be honest, we tend to go and see the characters and the shows during the early part of the party, then stake out a spot for the parade, usually somewhere along Main Street or at the hub, then watch the fireworks. That plan works for us.
