Since you would be staying onsite and will have unlimited Express access, the crowds shouldn't really matter to you. That's one of the perks for staying onsite.

This past summer we did Sunday to Saturday the second week in July and it was good. It was crowded but the heat was the real problem. So we decided to do the parks in the am untill noon then go back to RPR and use the pools or pool hop which is fun. We liked pool hopping to HRH and having lunch poolside. Then we would get showers and go to an early dinner, around 5-6 pm. After dinner return to the parks since they do not close until 10pm. The longest we waited in line was 15 minutes for the Simpsons with EP, when the regular lone was almost 1 1/2 hours. We will be there again this summer for the same week.

i find during the week is good, fri to sun i find the RPR is packed with locals staying, and the pool area compared with during the week is crowded, but you always get loungers,then it settles down till the fri again.

We were there over 4th weekend this year, and even on the 4th of July, everything was totally managable with FOTL...never had a more than 7-10 minute wait, even with those crowds!
