Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom to eliminate paper Fastpasses in move to become Fastpass+ only

Walt Disney World, My Magic, Fastpass+

The zombiepocalypse has begun!  The sky is falling!  The British are coming!  Paper Fastpass is gone!  Well, going soon anyway.  Beginning January 14, the Magic Kingdom will join the Animal Kingdom in becoming a Fastpass+ ONLY park.  From January 14, 2014 onward the Magic Kingdom will no longer offer Legacy or paper Fastpass machines within the park.  Guests staying at a Walt Disney World hotel will continue to be allowed to book their Fastpass+ options up to 60 days in advance using My Disney Experience and offsite guests will be required to book and or change their Fastpass+ options within the park at kiosks only.

At this time the Magic Kingdom will allow guests to choose any 3 Fastpass+ options that are available that day in the park.

Can I park hop with Fastpass+?

Guests must choose ONLY one park in which to use Fastpass+.  There is no park hopping with this technology, which seems like a huge mistake to me.  Why would one invest the extra couple hundred bucks for their family to park hop and not be able to use Fastpass+?   I suppose one could rope drop one park and hop to the park they plan to use the Fastpass+.

For the time being Hollywood Studios and Epcot continue to offer paper Fastpasses, but I expect to be eliminated by the end of January as well.
