We're utilizing wccp redirection in conjunction with WAE 4.1, where we have a good number of edge sites and the core site. If we disable wccp on the edge WAE, the session will not be optimized. However, would a packet still hit the WAE on the core?

No, The branch WAE utilizes aut-discovery of a peer to accelerate traffic. If traffic is not being redirected to the branch WAE then no optimization takes place.

If you are still intercepting traffic on the core and not excluding it via a redirect-list, then the core WAE will see the packets, but put them into PassThrough No-Peer. It would not be counted against optimized sessions.
