All CP Island April 2017 Events Have Ended
The Earth Day, World Penguin Day and Radio Disney Music Awards events are now officially over on Club Penguin Island and you can’t return to them, even if you change your device’s date.
That being said, we get to keep all the rewards from the events including the emojis, which penguins hoped wouldn’t go away! Now they’re here to stay!
Beacon Boardwalk is back to normal…
The Stage isn’t quite back to normal yet as the red carpet and statues are still up but the Radio Disney Music Awards logo has been removed from the background.
That being said, I’m sure there’s a whole variety of events planned for this month. We’ve already heard about Cars coming soon but I wonder what else is coming before then.
Earth Month & RDMA Events Begins
The first ever two events have begun on Club Penguin Island and those are the Earth Month and Radio Disney Music Awards events. Let’s take a quick look at them!
Firstly, the Stage has been transformed and has some extra decorations on and around it. Take a look!
The most significant change however is the Earth Month event which can be seen in Beacon Boardwalk. There are little Earth chairs to sit on and the Welcome Circle is now made out of grass.
Later today, we’ll be able to get the Panda Hoodie and use Born in China emojis. It is believed that these will drop from the Welcome Circle, but this is just a popular rumour.
These rewards can now be obtained simply by logging in. They look pretty cool and you get 3 emojis and a Panda Hoodie!
So far, I’m liking these events, but we’re still waiting to see the new things to collect. Do you think that this is a satisfactory replacement of parties?
What’s an event on Club Penguin Island? (+ Earth Day News)
April 22nd is Earth Day and to celebrate, the team are hosting some kind of event. We still don’t know what events are, other than they are not parties, but the team have now confirmed that there will still be some sort of decorations.
Honestly, it’s hard to tell the scale of what they’re talking about since we’ve never seen even a sneak peek of an event before, but this sounds pretty cool! It’ll be awesome to see a Welcome Circle event for it, with maybe a tree in the middle and animal outfits dropping from above!
That being said, I would also like to see some new decorations scattered around the island. Maybe just a few trees – something basic, but something there. Events scare me because events are the name of the thing in the Welcome Circle. Could it possibly be that this is ALL there is for events?!
My Opinion to the End of Parties on Club Penguin Island
Over the past few days, I’ve been posting a lot of Club Penguin Island news but the only thing I’ve really discussed is the beta controversy. Well, it was recently announced by Megg that there will not be parties as we know it in the new game. This news has received some rather mixed feelings and I personally think that this is for the better. In this discussion, I will define what will be replacing parties and why people like Billybob hinted at this six years ago.
Before I begin, I’d like to mention that when I spoke to Craig Voight (a former Club Penguin artist) in June, he did suggest that parties might eventually come to the app. In this discussion, I’m mainly going to base my opinions and thoughts of the information we’ve received from Megg though. All this suggests is maybe the team changed their minds about parties.
I believe that it is a good thing if Club Penguin Island doesn’t have parties but there needs to be something to replace it. Users are complaining that there will be nothing to keep players from returning. Well, I disagree.
Not only are there three daily challenges as well as adventures but there’s stuff we don’t even know of at the moment. Megg has said that there will be “events”. However, let’s figure out what these are and how similar they will be to parties.
When it comes to parties on Club Penguin, one of the things which players complain about the most is the lack of challenging tasks. As you can see in the image above, Megg has informed us that parties will take place in the form of challenges in the Daily Quest and adventures. Surely we should be happy for this since it suggests that we will have more challenging tasks.
Decorations. At the moment, rooms are usually completely decorated. This won’t be the case on Club Penguin Island but Megg has confirmed that there will definitely be decorations around the island. This basically means that there won’t be full-room parties, which also is an end to takeovers! Whilst many have read there won’t be parties, I don’t think they’ve read this comment from Megg.
In a way yes, we will continuously be adding more adventures and community challenges as we build out the game more. For special occasions and events, there will be decorations added, but they won’t be full room takeovers of the island like we do now.
So these events which Megg has told us about are not that different from parties as we know them. However, there’s nothing stopping us from throwing our own parties. This is a video of Billybob, the former General Manager of Club Penguin, speaking. Many people always thought he was one of the best people and what he says kind of explains the team’s decision about parties.

Six years ago, Billybob said how penguins like us are more creative with our parties. The fact is, in Club Penguin Island there are so many tools for us to create even bigger parties than we have now. The first thing that comes to mind are party supplies. There are SO many of them and we’ve already had a look at the party blaster.
In the future, there will also be igloos on Club Penguin Island and we’ll be able to decorate those. Think of how much fun our parties will be and how many players would have fun attending! In my opinion, that’s far better than Club Penguin throwing any types of parties but they are still working hard to try and give us “events”. Megg is extremely right.
Doesn’t mean we can’t start our own parties! That’s what I like best about CP Island… As we continue to build the game, there will be more and more available for our community to start their own themed parties 😀
One thing I do want to say before I conclude this post is that many people are really upset about there not being parties. I hope this post allows more people to realise that it is actually for the better but I think the team will still need to address the issue and explain their decision. This is what we’ve heard from them so far.
This way, we can focus our time on creating content that players can engage with every day so the app feels new and exciting each time you log in 🙂
I may agree on the team’s decision to get rid of parties as we know them but rarely does the community accept this response. We’ve heard so many times that it’s to focus their time on something else but quite frankly, no-one accepts that answer and they’re going to have to say more than just that.
To conclude, I think that Club Penguin Island is going to be awesome! There are so many tools for us to throw our own amazing parties whether it be party supplies and very soon there will also be igloos. Not only this, but the team themselves are also adding challenges which are one of the main things we want from a party. And despite all of this, there will also be some decorations plotted around the island. This also means the end of takeovers. What’s not to like?
Remember to check Club Penguin Mountains often for the latest Club Penguin Island news! I just really wanted to give my opinion on there not being parties because the vast majority of players are upset about this news when it is a good thing!
