You have allocated ~ 13 nights in LA and LV....why so long in each and so little in DC and NYC?

I think 3 or 4 nights is long enough in Las Vegas. Especially with all of the other cities you want to visit.

IMO, you do not have enough time in NY or DC. I would just skip DC and add the time to NY.

2 full days and 2 nights in Vegas is enough. For LA, you might consider about 4-5 days. If you are doing Disneyland that's a full day. Put more time into DC and NYC.
