Dubrovnik and Hvar in three nights

I’m considering the following itinerary:

Fly into Split at 2:00 on Saturday, hopefully catch the 4:00 ferry to Hvar, spend Sat and Sun nights in Hvar, catch 8:00 ferry to Dubrovnik on Monday and stay in Dubrovnik all afternoon Monday and all day Tuesday, catching an 8:30 p.m. flight to Geneva that night for four nights/three days in Haute Savoie before heading back to US. So, to recap, two nights and one full day in Hvar and one night and 1.5 days in Dubrovnik.
I fully recognized that this is a packed itinerary; however, I have small children and rarely get away. While I’m away from home, I like to make the most of my time and I don’t like to sit on the beach for an extended period. I’m usually satisfied with spending the minimum time recommended by Rick at a destination. I’ve thought about doing all three nights in Dubrovnik, but none of the day trips from Dubrovnik seem as lovely as Hvar. All that being said, is this crazy?

We found Split much more attractive than Dubrovnik. How about two nights Hvar and one night Split? Or are you stuck with a flight out of Dubrovnik?

Two hours after arrival you want to be on the ferry. Might be ambitious. Will you have a back up plan?

Split just does not appeal to me, but thank you! And yes, I do understand it’s pissibke that we will miss the 4:00 ferry. Thanks for your time and advice.
