If your physique is changing over the next year or so, I'd consider starting with quality shoes.
I prefer pair #1 and agree that a slight taper would improve the overall look.
I know many on this board will shudder at this suggestion for your day(s) at Disney, but I'd suggest wearing your most comfortble running shoes, a pair of cotton twill shorts and a lightwieght, loose-fitting shirt (either a polo-style knit or a button-front sportshirt). You won't be a fashion plate, but you'll be comfortable and still look better than 75% of the men there, most of whom will be wearing t-shirts, cargo shorts, and flip-flops. Flip-flops may be comfortable...
As most have said, it sounds as though the jacket may be a bad fit. However, as the previous poster indicated, it might be possible to let out the sides a bit, allowing the vent to lay properly.

My go-to interview shoe has always been my Alden 9015 (Cordovan punch cap bal). Here's a pic of another poster's 9015's (on the right): Here's a pic from The Alden Shop If you prefer black, the 9016 is the black shell cordovan equivalent. However, you mentioned you're buying your "first dress shoes" and that you "want to get something that's good"; I think, in the long run, you would be happier with the burgundy color over the black.
