Without saying how old your kids are, I was the “crazy park commando leader” for the kids first trips. They finally said that if I did not slow down they would mutiny. :laugh: Come heck or high water I was going to make sure they did everything over the 8-10 days we were there.
Especially if they are little, remember read there body language and go with what they want to do. Sometimes an afternoon at the pool is they way to go. They might even want to get up late one morning, play at the resort, and be OK to go to a park later in the day. And if they don’t want to stay for fireworks, just go with it and head back to the resort. You will have a much easier time and a good lead into the next day.
If you do stay late for fireworks, scope out a bench if the crowds are long and just relax before hitting the gate for a bus back to the resort. The less they have to stand in line, or you have to hold them in line, will be easier in the long run than fighting the masses to get out first.
