Leave the damn backpack in the car. You're not camping, you're going to an amusement park. You can't take it with you in the line for most rides.

Head to the back of the park first. Make sure you get your Millennium Force FREEWAY hand stamp around 11am, and your Dragster FREEWAY stamp around 2pm. This will save you valuable time waiting in line for these two giants. Most people seem to start out front, like Raptor. If you head back to Mean Streak first, you should have a quick walk on coaster ride. Like Jeff says, LEAVE THE BACKPACK IN THE CAR. You cannot even get in most lines with it. You can go to your car when you get close to the front. Make sure you get a handstamp so you can get back in!!!

Start in the back for sure, and hit Magnum first. Thats what I always do, its usually a walk on for a couple hours in the morning. If it's hot you may want to ride Disaster Transport earlier in the day because the line will get LONG. Too long to wait for that coaster. Corkscrew, Iron Dragon, Mine Ride, Wildcat, Blue and Mean Streak probably wont have to bad of a line all day. Just stay out of the front for the first few hours (minus DT).

Cedar Point doesn't have the little cubby-holds for you to place your belongings while on the ride?

Not on Dragster nor Millennium Force.

If you're going on a school day, while most schools are in session, it shouldn't be overly busy. No matter what, I would suggest making a list of what you want to see / do at the park and using a map to figure out how to go about it. The tip of starting in the back and work your way forward is HUGE, even if it is a school day.
Personally, I would say don't miss Wildcat, Demon Drop and Raptor (and of course, MF and TTD!)
