Crowds next week?

Hello!

I lurk on these boards, as one of my closest family members is a lesbian...I hope to bring her family with mine someday! Anyway, we have a trip scheduled next week (arriving Sat, actually). Just realized that I have our days planned for the exact same parks as gay days. Of course, we are a gay friendly family, so I would love to be there. However, what kinds of crowds are we talking about? If the park of the day will be extra crowded, we can move to another park. What are your recommendations? If there is not much impact on the park, we'll keep our schedule. If it will be crazy, I'd rather change. Help!

Thanks so much!
Kerry

P.S. I know this question has probably been asked a dozen times, but I didn't have time to dig through posts. Please forgive me.

The folks at Disney Touring Guides have been studying the crowds at WDW for over a decade. They claim there isn't much difference in the crowds due to GayDays; the volume is usually about the same as the volume the week before and the week after.

It's like any other crowded summer day. Just avoid The Country Bear Jamboree at 1 PM. A whole bunch of us bears pile into the line to pack the theater (the past few years it takes two shows to get everyone through). :-)
