There are three different Time Zones in Webkinz World: Asian, European, and American. An account's zone is determined at the time an account is created; it cannot be changed afterward.
Prior to July 8, 2015,
all accounts created after July 8, 2015 [Boper- removed time zone creation with addition of Webkinz X] are american accounts in eastern time, but euro and asian continue on their timezones
euro = central european time, asia = korean time
In Webkinz World
True Kinz Time
Hourly selection at the Curio Shop and Today's Activities happen in True KinzTime. This means they happen three times a day, once in each of the Webkinz World time zones at the time on the account's clock.
For example, if a rare item at the Curio Shop is available at 8:00 am KinzTime, it will be for sale at 8:00 am KinzTime in each of the time zones. Asian accounts get it first, at 8:00 am Asian time, European accounts get it next at 8:00 am Euro time (5 or 6 hours after Asian), and American accounts get it last at 8:00 am American time (13 or 14 hours after Asian).
Same Real Time
Hourly splendorific items at the KinzStyle Outlet, Mr. Moo in the Kinzville Park, and scheduled tournaments at the Webkinz Stadium all happen at the Same Real Time in Webkinz World. This means that they happen at the same time on American, European and Asian accounts irrespective of KinzTime.
For example, if a Splendorific is available at 8:00 am KinzTime on American accounts, it is simultaneously available at 1:00 pm KinzTime on European accounts and at 10:00 pm KinzTime on Asian accounts.
Most activities on European or Asian accounts roll over at midnight in their respective timezones. The following activities rollover at midnight American KinzTime.
- Wish of the Day at the Wish Factory
- kp/trading once per day with another member
- Filled Pet Care Hearts Pet Care and Family Score

- mobile wow
- events in kinzville park

- floaty clickies
eu's dst is staggered, asia no dst, so when american accounts are on dst curio time is off
