Actually, looking at this video from last night, there was an extra launch site that was missing on the 3rd, so they did get it symmetrical last night. One to each side of the island launch, one to each side of the main launch site behind castle.

So 8 total launch sites (6 of the originals + 2 new from DE).

Looks nice, but hopefully the full 360° returns for next year, and not a permanent cut..

How long has Tron's construction been going on???? We had 360 for New Years 2020.
Tron at the time was just the barebones of the coaster, no building yet. So it was deemed safe at the time. Currently, there's all sorts of stuff happening in the exterior – canopy, railroad, walkway/flyover, etc.

So maybe Disney deemed it as a risk....or they're just being cheap and cut it back for this year..

Unused launch site near Tron:

It's awfully close, wonder if it'll ever be used again due to the possible fallout on the canopy. If said canopy is fire-resistant, then there should be no possible risk I guess.

I figured it had to do with moving the Launch Points all around for DE.........but I'm no Insider.

My interpretation of that was 2 new launch sites were added for DE (project Nugget).
The existing launch sites near the main one behind MK still exist and were used last night as far as I can tell.

But maybe I read that thread/permits wrong. 🤷‍♀️

Yeah, I believe the DE launches are additions, not moving anything.

It may very well be with Tron the launch near there can’t be used currently, hard to know.
