Two Fantasmic! senerios, which should I do?

We will have 2 HWS days on our upcoming trip and want to see Fantasmic once. The first is a Monday with EMH, non recommended by easy and TP. For this day, I was able to get a F! Dining pkg at mama Melrose. Our second day will be a Wed, regular park hours, recommended park day. I've tried ( and will keep trying) to change my F! dining to this day, but so far, no luck.

Would you use the priority seating on the busier day, or just get in the stand by line on a better day?

I would still go on the EMH day so you can enjoy Mama Melrose's and don't lose time on waiting in line to see Fantasmic.

If either of those dates have two Fantasmic shows, then go to the second show. It will be less crowded and if it isn't a busy period, you might not even need to get a dinner package. But if Fantasmic is a must do and everyone will be really upset if they miss it, then plan to go on the first of your two nights. That way if it is rained out, you'll still be able to have an opportunity to see it the next time.

Definitely do MM and priority seats. Love the package and MM. The seats were great. I had always done package before but the seats were to the side. I never knew what I was missing until June when we did package and were right in the middle. Awesome. Don't get too close to front as you can get splashed and better to see a little higher. F! is always the highlight of my trip to Disney. If you have park hoppers and park is busy just go somewhere else first and then come over in time for package.
