How crowded would it be? Which day is best? Flash pass? What should my plan be. May 1,2,3, or 4 the best day to go?

Well, since the park isn't even open on May 1 or 2, those days wouldn't be good days to go. May 3rd is a Friday, but the park is only open until 6:00 PM, while May 4th is a Saturday with the park open until 9:00 PM.

The crowds are likely to be far less on Friday than Saturday, so despite the limited opening hours, I would recommend going on Friday, May 3

And don't decide on the flash Pass until you're at the park and scope the crowd. There was hardly anyone at GAdv yesterday, but I still saw people who had bougt the FP. It was not needed, except maybe for Toro and Ka.
