Question Best day to use Magic Morning Early Entry tickets?

Anyone have opinions as to which day of the week is best to use your Magic Morning Early Entry tickets?

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday?

Is the best strategy to go on Saturday since it opens earliest (to avoid those who like to sleep in) or to go on a weekday like Tues/Thurs which is typically less crowded overall?
We'd be going in Sept, so Tues & Thurs open 10am, Sunday opens 9am, and Saturday opens 8am...if that makes a difference!

Thanks!

The code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules

All else being equal most of us think it is better to use MM as early in your trip as possible because you will have more energy and it will be easier to get up early. There is a school of thought that says when weekday hours are 10AM it is better to use MM on a weekend with 8AM opening because that makes the MM at 7AM and people are less likely to get up at 7AM. Hence it will be less crowded on Sat/Sun.

Also from my MM superthread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1675403

Which day of our trip should we go to MM?
Generally if there are two MM days offered during your trip, but you only have 1 MM to use the best day to use it would be the first possible day. So if you were going to the parks for a very long weekend (Saturday-Tuesday) and you only had 1 MM, you would have to choose to use it on Saturday, Sunday, or Tuesday. My recommendation is to use it on Saturday because by the end of your trip you WILL be more tired and less inclined to wake up early. Also, even though crowds on Saturdays and Sundays will be greater, it is better to choose these days (if possible) than weekdays during offseasons. This is true because the parks open sometimes 2 hours earlier on the weekends than on the weekdays and less people will want to get up for MM at 7AM on a Saturday than 9AM on a Tuesday.

Since we say on site now we go both days. We do not have an issue with getting up early. If we had only one day I would go on the 1st day available.
