Only private dinners need to be over in 1.5 hours. As for the bonifire, all of the reviews I've read by couples who did them said that the fire lasted longer than an hour. If you tip the bartender well he will stick around for an extra half hour and I'm crossing my fingers that the DJ will be just as agreeable. We figured this would put our bonfire from 8:30 til 10ish. Since the disco is at the suites we have to go to the lobby at this point to catch the shuttle there so we figured a little rest at the lobby bar to recharge our batteries before going would take about an hour (and give us time to chat with the guests with children who can't go to the disco. Remember, nothing happens instantly, people are more than happy to take their time getting from place to place what with all the bars along the way lol. I have a feeling your extra hour will be very easy to kill.

4:30-7:00: Ceremony, toasts, pictures
7:00-8:30: Dinner @ Uncle Tony's
8:30-9:30: Bonfire at Beach
I may move the hour 'break' after dinner, change out of my dress and have everyone meet at the bonfire at 9:30, not sure!
