Animal Kingdom on Pop Warner Party Day

We are currently planning on hitting AK on 12/5. They close early (7pm) for the Pop Warner party, but we plan to rope drop FOP and finish up the park by mid-to-late-afternoon. TP predicts crowds will be low, but I have read mixed reviews on the amount of Pop Warner related crowds flock to the party park earlier in the day. Has anyone here done a park on the same day it hosted the Pop Warner after-hours party? Is it going to be awful? Should I try to rearrange our plans?
