Has anyone ever been to WDW over Memorial Day weekend?

We have been 4 times during Memorial week, we always arrived on Sat and stayed til the following Sat. We find that most of the parks are fine, but avoid MK on that Sat-Mon because lots of locals come out for the holiday. We have spent the weekend prior to Memorial day in DHS (even with Star Wars Weekends) and had low wait times. We spend Memorial day either in Epcot or AK and both were fine. The week following is busy but not terrible. We have never waited longer than 30 mins in line and we use FP on all the E ticket rides and have had great trips. Our only complaint is the heat, it will be super hot and humid!

I thought I'd mention that Memorial Day weekend and the following week are Gay Days at Disney in 2011. I know some people won't blink an eye and others will swear off going over Gays Days so I thought I'd mention that so you know. No matter how you feel on the subject, Gay Days will make it busier than it would normally be-so that is something to consider.

We've been to WDW during Memorial Day Weekend (back in '05). I was worried about crowds too - especially since we'd been travelling during off-peak times.

DO you get to do Star Wars weekends again? We went once and my boys just loved it! I'd love to get to do it again. :) Sounds like you are gonna have a blast!! Happy planning!
