Regular vs. Summer rates..Crowd differential worth it?

Based on 2013 rate schedule, they classified Regular Rate 4/7 thru 5/30 (Memorial Day was 5/27)..and then Summer Rate 5/31 thru 7/13. With this, Summer rates are less than the Regular Rates....Assuming this holds true for 2014 (Memorial day is May 26, 2014) and they separate the two seasons at the end of Memorial Day week (Friday of that week would be 5/30)...Would it make sense to go on our planned week May 24-31 (My original plan), or delay a week, and go May 31- June 7th..

I am assuming the crowds are busier the second week?
Does the decrease in resort costs justify the possible busier crowd levels? (Assuming that Disney classifies it as Summer, so it is more crowded?)

It has been a while since we have done WDW, and I am kinda rusty in the planning department...

We are shooting for a Contemporary Tower Room, if that makes a difference..
