SDMT FP+ hard to get on party days

My time to schedule my FP+ was this morning and all went well except the fact that even though I was only 2 minutes into my time, there were no FP's for SDMT on one of my MK days. I got it for my other day.

I mentioned this to my TA and she said that she has only had one issue with that so far and we got to talking and both incidents occurred on days when a party (Christmas in my case) was going on at the park. So it makes me wonder if for some reason Disney has decided to release very few FP's on party days, for whatever reason. I was just wondering if anyone else has come across this issue. And if you have any insight.

Based on the reports I've read, it's hard to get 7DMT FPs for any day right now.

Party days have shorter hours (MK closes at 7pm), so I would think that would be a factor.

Party days also potentially have twice as many guests booking fastpasses (those attending the regular day and those attending the party). Party guests can book from 4-7. That might be a factor.
