The Lavos spawn and 1999 work great. All looking goo d there so far.
I was able to trigger it in reverse, but keep in mind, that you could trigger the the scene by going down the mountain from the portal. Then (before the party) go back to the end of time, grab your time machine, then go to prehistory, so there's sort of no way around it that way. I think the better solution is (and hear me out on this one), if the team already has the epoch, do a check when they wake up from the party. If so have Lucca say something like, "No problem, there's a spare in the Epoch, I'll just hit the recall to bring it to us" or something like that, give them the gate key back automatically and have the epoch set to be in prehistory with them, and autocomplete the sidequest, basically skipping it. I mean that can only happen in new game plus mode anyways, effectively skips the quest (since they already have the dreamstone) and they'll just get Ayla later after Magus.

Yeah, going back and doing the gate key sidequest with Ayla after getting the Dactyles completely borks your game because when it's over Ayla is effectively removed from the game with no way to get her back and the Tyrano lair is not beatable.
