Questing in WoW One Night a Week

Flying on a dragon is a good thing
I bought Mists of Pandaria about a month ago and finally finished the first zone, Jade Forest, this week. I did spend some of that time finishing leveling my Mage so I could disenchant, but still, I'm sure that seems like an incredible slow rate for most of the people who play WoW.

I remember when Burning Crusade came out, while some people were done in less than a week, I took about a week for each level.  I'm significantly slower than that now, but I've learned to accept it.  However, there are some difficulties.  There were a few times when I lost the train of what was going on.  I try to have one significant (2 hour) play session a week, but it doesn't always happen.  I did last weekend which got me very close to finishing the first zone and I was able to finish it in a relatively short session this weekend.

Even though sometimes I lost the train of the quest line, I was able to enjoy most of it.  In particular, the relatively short quest line within the Temple of the Jade Serpent (not including the instance) was finished in one session and it had the nice payback of a ride on the back of the Jade Serpent at the end.  I was also able to appreciate the horror of what happens at the end.

My thoughts now are how to get the most of the questing.  I'm close to level 87 and I certainly won't be able to play even half of the quests while leveling my first character.  I could just play the rest at max level, but I know I'm going to want to level at least my priest.  My plan now is to get to level 87 in Valley of the Four Winds and then switch to Krasarang Wilds.  This will allow my priest to switch to Valley of the Four Winds at level 86 and I'll see this content with her.

I went to Krasarang wilds once to turn in a special fish with Nat Pagle and it looks like I need to quest some there to get a closer flight path to him.  However, after that, I can pretty much quest in any area.  I'd love to get suggestions for people favorite zones to quest in, so I can at least finish one of the more enjoyable areas on my hunter before I reach 90.
