Just a quick update that as part of the fix of the major bugs on Club Penguin Island, there’s a small new update that doesn’t have any content but should hopefully fix all of these bugs which were reported with the 1.1.2 update.
I should note that the app is significantly heavier, making me have to delete a bunch of stuff, but it’s worth it if the game actually works now! I appreciate the team trying to counter these as they were pretty serious!
Last night saw the release of version 1.1.1 of Club Penguin Island which caused so much hype in the community! The most notable change is the addition of the Disney Shop but there is so much more which players have noticed. Today I’m going to share everything new in the app!
I’d like to give a HUGE thanks to Dj Stores/Foodtrekker who supplied me with every screenshot you see in this post! You can pre-register your interest for something awesome he’s working on here!
The Disney Shop:
This was the change that Club Penguin featured on the What’s New area of the updated app. The Disney Shop is now open and it’s AMAZING! Currently you can purchase outfits from the following series but more have already been confirmed to come in the future:
- Finding Dory
- Monsters Inc.
- Toy Story
- Elena the Avalor
Here are the things which you can buy for a pretty cheap price! They vary from costumes to fabrics to even party supplies!
These are absolutely amazing! I love the outfits and the fact they’ve included party supplies too is just incredible! There’s also new actions when you use these supplies.
Here’s an example of a person eating from the “Pizza Planet Box” from Toy Story and the “Pawpsicle” from Zootopia!
Members can buy all of these new items at the Disney Store, and there’s more coming! These look really cool and I, like many, am so glad to see them in the game!
The next big change! You can now play the game in other languages like French and Portuguese! Woo hoo!
In your settings tab, you can now get more detailed information on your membership, which is awesome since previously you only knew what Google/Apple told you.
This is likely to be helpful to those paying for the membership to clear up any confusion that previously took place.
As we near worldwide release, more worlds have been added for us to play on!
This isn’t anything too big at the moment since not even the current worlds are near full yet, but I’m sure this will be a useful addition when the game is out worldwide.
Friend list changes:
The most notable change to the Friends List is that there is now a hard limit of 200. This is not surprising and completely understandable as the list apparently became buggy after surpassing 200 friends. The team has said:
“It’s something we’re working on to make the app run as smooth as possible.”
One thing that is not certain is what happens to those with over 200 friends. Think of staff members who have exceeded this number. Pen50gi shared that SheepVSGravity (a developer) has confirmed that they can’t exceed the 200 friends limit so then what happens?
There’s also a small little action for online friends which you can see above. This has been changed from what it previously was.
Chapter 2 of Aunt Arctic’s Adventures:
The second chapter of Aunt Arctic’s Adventures has now been hinted in the game. Although it says “Coming Soon”, we know they’ll be out in April. This is so exciting because it also gives you an opportunity to earn a higher level, and we can assume familiar faces will be appearing there too!
No more VPN:
Regions part of the “selected territories” that aren’t technically part of the geo-beta no longer need to use a VPN!
Foodtrekker has kindly informed me that there is also new music in the game! These are:
- Between events in Beacon Boardwalk
- For the Dance Floor event in Beacon Boardwalk
- New loading music
- Changes to the music at the Party Sub
Along with these soundtracks, there’s also new music for the band in Coconut Cove, a new sound track when on the trampoline and many others!
New Video when Loading:
At the top right of your screen when you first open up the game is a button that plays a short ad for the game. MikeyMichael kindly allowed me to share his video of it (thanks!).
Interestingly enough, member features have been removed from it.
As with most updates, bugs have been squashed. I heard on social media from GeekJose that the going underground glitch has been patched but I am not 100% sure this is the case.
Also, the copyright has been updated from 2016 to 2017. This isn’t really a bug but more a minor change: the font of the Daily Challenge’s “claim” button has also changed.
That’s all for this update and in comparison to what’s coming (igloos, new areas, puffles, new adventures and so much more) this is a pretty small update, yet social media was so hyped when it was announced!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! This legit makes me want to fake a sudden sickness so i can go home lol https://t.co/eLF9R5WihX

If we are so hyped about this, imagine these huge updates in the future! I honestly can’t wait! This is a great foot in the right direction for Club Penguin Island!
I hope you liked this post and once again, a massive thanks to Dj Stores for the screenshots in this post!
The month of April will contain a big update for Club Penguin Island according to Megg, with lots of events planned for that month as well as new content, most likely the addition of new areas.
April was a month Megg kept going back to in today’s meet-up where she welcomed questions and explained that April would basically be an action-packed month for the game, which is awesome! I’m so hyped and it’s just two months away!
For the first time for hopefully many years to come, the Club Penguin Island app has received an update and is now version 1.0.1!
Other than bug fixes, the only major change is the addition of over 20 servers, though I’ve heard rumours that the quick chat has been adjusted a bit too.
The most interesting thing to me is that you can continue playing whether you have the update or not, even with other friends. Theoretically, it might even be possible to never update the app and have a beta version in a few years. If you try to “Friend Jump” to a penguin on a different server, it will say that there are connection issues.
An addition of so many servers suggests that launch is approaching us rapidly and maybe even at the start of March rather than towards the end. Ever since Superqami told me this morning (thanks!) I’ve wondered, what are your thoughts?
The Club Penguin Island app has received multiple icon changes but the interesting thing is that we’re not sure why. You could assume that there’s an update but there isn’t. Furthermore, players are getting different icons. Take a look!
The image above is the one I get. I personally prefer this icon a lot over the current one, but Captain J153 gets a different one of a character playing the keytar.
I also really like this image a lot! However, if that’s not confusing enough, Flip Flap15 gets an image of two penguins hanging out. Personally, I don’t like this image very much.
What’s even weirder is that on my computer, I get the usual app icon. This one is just terrible compared to the others.
My guess is that the image of the app depends on your location, though I hope this changes. The top two really advertise the game much better than the bottom two and the icon is the first thing a new player sees.
This is interesting though, why the sudden change? Could we be nearing a geo-beta update, even though this was dismissed by Megg? All I can hope is that we get the keytar image or the tube image. Which is your favourite?
Once again, I’d like to thank Captain J153 and Flippy for allowing me to use their images! Be sure to check back frequently for the latest news!
