Celebrating Five Years of Toontown Rewritten! | ToonFest 2018

Posted by The Toontown Team on September 19, 2018 at 2:00 PM

Five years ago on September 19, 2013, Toontown Online closed its doors. A message appeared on screen -- one that players normally would hope they would never see again, but in this instance wished they could see it just one more time. "Your internet connection to the servers has been unexpectedly broken."

Thankfully, we live in a world where that disconnect message was far from the last. Just seconds later, Toontown Rewritten was officially announced, and we now celebrate FIVE YEARS of a revival that has proven to be like no other!

ToonFest 2018: Celebrate FIVE YEARS of Toontown Rewritten!

By all circumstances, Toontown Rewritten shouldn't exist. It especially shouldn't have an annual convention, nearly two million registered accounts, and thousands of daily active players. The reality is: It does, and we never want to take that for granted.

That's why we're inviting you to jump into Toontown between now and October 20th to party with us in celebration of Toontown Rewritten's fifth anniversary. Today marks the beginning of our annual in-game event, ToonFest 2018!

To enter ToonFest, head over to the special event area in Chip and Dale's Acorn Acres or click on the red ToonFest teleport button on the top right of your screen. Here's just a few of the things to expect during this year's event:


Meet Riggy Marole

It's hard not to love Riggy Marole, the absolutely insane host of ToonFest who keeps things lively throughout the event. You can expect to see a blog post from him soon! In the meantime, he'll be strolling around ToonFest talking to Toons and generally being a bit of a rascally rabbit.

Riggy Marole


Earn Exclusive Prizes

One of the most exciting parts of ToonFest are glamorous Token Takers, located within the ToonFest tower and at pop-up booths around the area! These Token Takers will sell you all sorts of exclusive items, from limited time accessories to portable pies to experience multipliers! No matter what kind of Toon you are, we've got a bunch of prizes in store for you. Earn ToonFest tokens by playing minigames in the area, and keep your eyes peeled for new ways to earn as the event goes on!

The ToonFest Tower


Bigger and Better

ToonFest isn't just here for the weekend. We'll be partying all month long, and releasing updates and blog posts along the way to keep the fun going! Riggy Marole will be delivering you all of the latest ToonFest news, along with ways the event will get bigger and better as it has ever year!

Blast to the Past

To celebrate how far Toontown Rewritten has come in these five years, for the first time ever the Toontown Team will be hosting a special livestream to play a remastered and updated version of the "Toon Council Presidential Election" event, which was available at the end of Toontown Rewritten Alpha in 2014.

Due to technical limitations, this event will only be available to watch rather than play. However, if there's high demand after the livestream, we may rework this event to be playable by anyone in the future.

"TOON" in on September 29 at 1PM Toontown Time (PDT) to watch this live event with commentary from the Toontown Team! More details will be posted on the blog next week.

The Toon Council Presidential Election: Back for the first time since 2014!


ToonFest is now available to play by visiting the special event area in Chip and Dale's Acorn Acres, or by clicking the red ToonFest teleport button located at the top right of your screen. Go enjoy the fun before it's gone!


Thank you all so much for FIVE YEARS of Toontown Rewritten!
You ARE Toon Enough!

It gives me goosebumps knowing how much effort is given into the game! People don't appreciate this enough. *cough* Thank you Joey and the TTR Team *cough* See you at Toonfest!

Bubblefish McNuggets said on September 19, 2018 at 2:17 PM

Yippie said on September 19, 2018 at 2:40 PM
I think having the elections playable for everyone would be a great idea! It will give everyone a fair chance to experience it. Maybe the alpha attire can be re-released in celebration of this?

Leaping said on September 19, 2018 at 2:59 PM
Wowza! More Stuff? Great! Can't Wait For Deers To Get All ToonFesty!

Baby Blue said on September 19, 2018 at 3:04 PM

TOONFEST TIME :D I love you guys so much for bringing back this game, thank you <3

Mister Fluffy Dynoteeth said on September 19, 2018 at 3:09 PM
Happy Anniversary, TTR! Here's hoping to another great year! Also, YES, DO make the 2014 elections event playable again! Make it a limited time thing if you have to, but I never got to experience it firsthand myself and would love to play it for real with other actual players, and not just simulate it offline.

Blossom (PPGs) said on September 19, 2018 at 3:37 PM
This is PAWSOME! I love ToonFest!!!

Bubbles (PPGs) said on September 19, 2018 at 3:38 PM
ToonFest! I'm going there!

Princess Rosie said on September 19, 2018 at 3:48 PM
It almost feels like destiny that I found out about ToonBook only 2 months before TTO closed; I can't imagine growing up without playing this game. Happy birthday TTR!

Jonathan said on September 19, 2018 at 4:09 PM
I first started sixteen years ago back in 2002 Disney's Toontown Online BETA. I managed to max my toon, & when I heard the game was forever gone in 2013, it was heart breaking. Thanks to Toontown Rewritten & the staff, my nostalgic childhood was brought back, & enjoying the game I once knew even more. In regards to ToonFest 2018, I just used my tokens to buy the rare outfit for this year, & had a great time celebrating. Congratulations! on the five year legacy, now lets strive for 10! Keep up the great work, & let's keep this special game running.

Good ol' Lollipop Sourbee said on September 19, 2018 at 4:59 PM

Master of Kaos said on September 19, 2018 at 5:00 PM
Glad this celebration is a month long! I have barely been able to play with the amount of crashing that has been created today. Hopefully it will be better as time goes on! Thank you for the toonfest!

Fizzle Fizzle said on September 19, 2018 at 5:07 PM

Ugly said on September 19, 2018 at 5:48 PM
Duck Tank is my favorite, they should introduce more multiplayer activities like that.

Cutie said on September 19, 2018 at 5:54 PM
Happy 5 years TTR!

King Davo said on September 19, 2018 at 6:09 PM
This was always my favorite childhood game. I used to beg my mom for ToonTown cards in like 2009. I woke up every morning to play if it wasn't a school game. I still my gamer friends about it today and it is still fun. If I get rich I will invest money and market this game. :D

Bean said on September 19, 2018 at 6:39 PM

Mister Hazel Kooky Flipper said on September 19, 2018 at 6:45 PM
I will be glad to watch doomsday over again and see how much is changed for this legendary end of alpha and see how TTR and TTO has grown all over the years. Happy 5th anniversary and i hope ill make it to watch the livestream. Mister Hazel

Punchy Picklezilla said on September 19, 2018 at 6:56 PM
AWESOME! Can't wait to play! For 5 years! WHO IS WITH ME?!

Olaf Trickydoodle said on September 19, 2018 at 7:25 PM
I remember my first Toonfest. Had no clue what it was until a few days after it ended. Still got some prizes though. Toonfest isn't working for me this year though. Every time I go in I walk around for a few seconds and it force quits. Hopefully it will be fixed before Toonfest its over!

T-Dawg said on September 19, 2018 at 7:49 PM
Very glad the boosts have returned again! Thanks for keeping the game alive :)

Bubblegum Sparklepunk said on September 19, 2018 at 7:50 PM
Yes, I would LOVE to be able to play the election event!!! I didn't get a chance to in 2014 and I feel like I really missed out :( I'm so happy you're bringing it back!

Good Ol' Sunny Sparkletoon said on September 19, 2018 at 8:05 PM
I LOVE THIS GAME AND I LOVE TOONFEST! I just don't love the lag so much... was in the least full server of 46 toons total and lag was still a big drag. But I love the way it's been set up and THE XP MULTIPLIERS!!! Especially merit/buck/jury/stock multipliers! Nobody likes grinding max 'merits'. This should help a tOON! ( ahem) I mean, a ton!

Madi said on September 19, 2018 at 8:17 PM
Heck yes! Would LOVE to enjoy Toonfest this year!!!!!! If I ever stop crashing.

Ethan said on September 19, 2018 at 8:23 PM
Wow, toons! Great moves. Keep it up. Proud of you.

polly said on September 19, 2018 at 9:35 PM
AA!!! this is my first ever toonfest and it's been a blast! I absolutely love it

Little Tom Jabbermonkey said on September 19, 2018 at 9:44 PM
5 years went by so fast! I've been playing since June 2014 and following TTR News soon after I found out about TTO's closure. Thank you all so much for Toontown Rewritten!!! We love you all. -Shortest, Fattest Mouse in Town

Coffee said on September 19, 2018 at 9:45 PM

Oh wow I couldn't imagine how fast this community grew up! Amazing job team!

Doctor Curly Crinklecorn said on September 19, 2018 at 11:29 PM

Sammy said on September 20, 2018 at 1:24 AM

Mizi said on September 20, 2018 at 10:28 AM
I still remember when toontown shut down as a game and I was crying. Now here is toontown rewritten, it's all free, and I could actually get out of toontown central!

May said on September 20, 2018 at 10:45 AM
I've been waiting all morning for this post! So excited for Toonfest this year! I really hope the elections will be available for play, since I joined a little after closed beta began. Happy Five Years!

Day said on September 20, 2018 at 11:23 AM
Over 9 years memories of Toontown, from Toontown online to rewritten to other creations. It is such a beautiful thing to see the game live on like this.

Celticknight said on September 20, 2018 at 2:36 PM

contradictant said on September 21, 2018 at 7:06 AM
I am so glad I found this; I had no idea toontown rewritten was announced after toontown online's closure, so I quit playing. I missed my old game so much I did a random search yesterday and found you guys! I don't know how you run without paid subscriptions (?) but i'm so excited to be playing my old game again; even if i'm starting from scratch :)

Nice! Go toonfest !

Professor J.C. Googlezapper said on September 22, 2018 at 5:23 AM
I am a former long term subscriber of the original game. I can still remember my two young daughters showing me this game in the early 2000s like it was yesterday. We played on 2 accounts. An interesting story was that we met what would be their future "sister" through this game and we will be meeting her at Disney in a few weeks...A million thanks to the dedicated team of coders, developers, application and infrastructure teams that make this possible! Thank you for making this world a little more enjoyable. Grace and Peace to you all from God The Father and Our Lord Jesus Christ!

Skinny Mackenzie Flowercookie said on September 22, 2018 at 6:48 AM

Fluffabunny said on September 22, 2018 at 5:41 PM
Wow! This is the first time I've been around to be able to make it for Toonfest, though technically I had an account all 5 years. I love the events and the accessories! The experience multipliers also helped me max sound on my deer. :D

Cheesecake said on September 22, 2018 at 6:05 PM

Dippy Pancake Twinklebounce said on September 22, 2018 at 6:49 PM
