Show your reservation and following the signs for Breakers on the first day so you can park in the Breakers Lot and avoid the parking fee.

When you have to opportunity to enter the park early, take advantage of it.
When you have the opportunity to stay at the park until closing time, take advantage of that. As long as you are in line for a ride before the official park close time you will still be able to ride, even if it takes 90 minutes to clear the line
The above allows you to ride the major rides when the park is least crowded (common sense but not everyone abides).

If you take advantage of the above, don't feel you need to maximize every second of every day, especially if you have Fastlane for the day. Take a relaxing nap midday, you paid for Breakers to have this luxury available.

If you can wait until 2:30 to eat lunch, don't eat from 12-2:00 when most people eat. Consider eating at Melt, Chickie and Pete's or Famous Dave's at the Marina all of which have indoor air conditioned seating. Or if you are looking to save a little money and/or eat healthier, stock your room with healthier snacks and sandwiches. Take advantage of the proximity of your room, you paid for this luxury.

Stay hydrated when you are at the park, keep bottled water in a cooler in your room. Drink a bottle of water whenever you leave or enter your room.

Ride everything that looks interesting, even if not a coaster. A trip to Cedar Point is never complete for me if I don't ride certain flat rides, especially the Derby Racer, Tiki Twirl, MaxAir and Skyhawk. R.I.P. Witches Wheel

Lastly, I'm sure sure if this is still the case, but Breakers used to not have coffee makers in the room, which I recall others complaining about in the past, so be prepared to have to inconvenience of a groggy walk buy coffee at Perkins or Starbucks each morning if you are a coffee slave (or bring your Keurig)
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

I will also add to everyone and say that Millennium Force is the easiest ride to Marathon during early entry. If you want lots of rides on it, go there straight at early entry opening. I would spend one of your days doing that; it is an awesome experience, and as others have said, if you do end up getting fast lane, the merge point is still a bit ways away for that ride. I wouldn't bother trying to ride any other time when you have such an opportunity in the morning to go crazy.
