Here is our plan. We will fly from Washington DC - we already have tickets DC to Aukland and Christchurch to DC. We did not book any hotels, flights or rental cars yet. Please give us advice.

Nov 2: at 12:50 pm arrive to Aukland then fly to Nelson. Night in Nelson
Nov 3: All day in Abel Tasman Park. We are planning to take a bus from Nelson to park and relax. Night in Nelson
Nov 4: Rent a car. All day (about 6 hours) drive to Franz Josef. Night in Franz Josef
Nov 5: Spend half a day in Franz Josef. In the evening Drive to Wanaka (about 3.5 hours). Night in Wanaka
