Looking Like I Can't Really Afford To Go To Disney

I agree that it's the shorter operating hours at MK, mostly due to the parties. The drop off for FP+s available seemed to happen right after Labor Day, which coincided with the start of the parties.Shorter hours & MVMCP - there are less FPs to give out
The first two full weeks of August, the MK was opened from 9-midnight and 9-11 p.m., respectively. That's 203 operating hours in those two weeks.
In the first two full weeks of October, there are six Halloween parties, which end up contributing to a cut in hours down to 164. That's a 20% reduction in normal park hours, which is going to mean a 20% reduction in the number of FP slots available. I think that's the biggest factor in the reduced FP availability.
