Disney's Club Penguin Shut Down And People Are Devastated
My childhood is OVER.
On Jan. 31, 2017, Disney Interactive announced that its massively popular game Club Penguin would be closing down.
After a two-month long "Waddle On" party, the online world finally shut down at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, March 30.

Club Penguin Island is Disney's new mobile-only version of its original penguin game.

R.I.P. Club Penguin!
We'll never forget you <3
