The Duck Tour consistently sells out, so I would at least buy those in advance. The rest you're less likely to into problems unless it's a particularly busy weekend day.

I'm one of those "planner" people, so if it were me, I'd order all the tickets for anything I'd want to do, as soon as the dates became available. I don't think you can go wrong doing that.

However, of everything you mentioned, probably the Duck Tour would be the only thing likely to be sold out more than a day or two in advance.
