Yep, it was hotfixed about 12 hours after it appeared. Which was about 12 hours ago. Before that you could get to the next 3 waypoints, meet new vendors, get dyes and apply them, meet new monsters, invite players so they can get the waypoints as well, and so on.
They hotfixed it but people still had the WP's and were sharing in chat channels. A lot of people have played through the 3 new zones btw. It's definitely really cool; I decided not to record/upload though for Blizz's sake, but expect leaked vids soon.
I also have the waypoints friends gave me. Its spread around like a virus so I expect a wipe patch next week maybe. But to by honest there are not much spoilers only some new mobs and found a new event.
Ask neophyte for the waypoints. I lost them while making new game. I am getting mass pm's here lol. But everything looks solid. I expect a new small cinematic after the skeleton king but its not in there. Because I think you will get many small cinematics after some events.
