Help with Balkan Itinerary

Hi- I am planning a 12 day trip in the Balkans and came up with this itinerary. I am an experienced solo traveler but need help in deciding how many days to spend in each place.

Day 1 - arrive in Dubrovnik in the afternoon, transatlantic flight

Day 2 - explore Dubrovnik

Day 3 - explore Dubrovnik (too much time in Dubrovnik?)

Day 4 - take a bus to Kotor (2 hrs), explore Kotor + Perast, overnight in Kotor -- too much for a day?

Day 5 - bus from Kotor to Mostar (5 hrs)- I could not determine if the bus leaves in the morning or afternoon, can someone help?

Day 6 - Spend a day in Mostar

Day 7 - Take a 6am bus to Split (4 hrs). Explore Split

Day 8 - Explore Split, take a quick trip to Trogir in the afternoon

Day 9 - Take a day trip to Hvar and Brac - islands - ferry

Day 10 - Take a guided excursion to Plitvice Lakes

Day 11 - Fly to Zagreb from Split (early morning 7am), explore Zagreb full day

Day 12 - fly back to the States from Zagreb

The only things I will say right now is that your time in Dubrovnik is fine and that I don't really think you can do Hvar AND Brac in one day so pick one of them.
