We are actually planning a similar trip as yours in early April. We will be driving from South Carolina and have 1 night in Charlottesville, 1 night in Gettysburg, 3 1 night in Hershey, 3 nights in the Amish country and 3 nights in Williamsburg. We are doing this as a family of grandparents, parents/grandchildren and an aunt. This was in lieu of Christmas presents.

Cut the nights in Amish country to one (at the very most, 2) and add time to Williamsburg. I have been to both, worked in Williamsburg, and you could easily see a lot of Amish stuff in a day and spend just one night there before heading to WMSB.

Thatís a lot of moving around. Hershey and Lancaster are a short drive between. You can stay in one place and do both.
charlottesville is a nice area. Monticello is great. There are several nice wineries in the area. Also some great hikes near Charlottesville.
williamsburg is a cute town with the historic village and Busch gardens. There is also the big retired navy ships in Norfolk.

Personally think one day is plenty in Amish country and three nights is not nearly enough in Williamsburg. Make an alternate plan is case there is a late storm in PA.
