MVMVP Christmas Party Weeknight or Weekend Tickets?

Hi, we will be making our 2nd trip to Disney with our son (6) and daughter (5). We’d like to try the Christmas Party again (we went last time and we got there late and it was dark outside and my kids first time to Disney…it was overwhelming for them at 4 and 3). We are going to be in Disney the 2nd week of December. Is a party on Tuesday typically less crowded than on a Friday? I would also appreciate any tips for enjoying the party that you have found with kids this age. Thank you.
