It looks like Disney is changing the FastPass+ lineup yet again. They’ve announced that fireworks & parades will no longer have FastPasses at the Magic Kingdom. This comes after Disney built a dedicated FastPass viewing area in the redesigned hub. I’ve always considered these FastPasses to be a bad bet since it meant you couldn’t get any additional FastPasses at kiosks since you had a FastPass tied up for Wishes.
I can see Disney using the area in the hub for desert parties or other separately ticketed events. Also this means that Disney won’t need to dedicate cast members to this area which in turn will save them money. Disney has been making cuts across all Walt Disney World & Disneyland Resort lately. I’d assume this is just part of those cuts.
