I think that you have done a great job organizing your itinerary by location and not squeezing too much into one day. My only concern is day four. You are trying to squeeze TOTR, shopping, Central Park and getting ready for dinner into only five hours. You could easily spend five hours in Central Park alone!

Thanks, comfyjeans. I didn't plan for much shopping time since the three men in my family despise shopping. But we are going to walk around each night and look at the Christmas windows as well as the show at Grand Central Terminal.
