Disney Dreamlight Valley lets players interact with many of Hollywood’s most iconic animated characters, and to add even more to the fray, we’ll walk you through the process of unlocking them.
Outside of quests and cooking, the heart of Disney Dreamlight Valley resides with its characters – interactable versions of some of Disney’s most incredible heroes and villains.
From Mickey Mouse to Wall-E, there is plenty of star power for you to talk to in the game, but there are also many that need to be unlocked first.
To flesh out your Disney Dreamlight Universe, we’ve put together a useful guide that documents all the characters you can add to your world and detailed instructions on how to unlock them and open up more of the game.
How to unlock new Disney Dreamlight Valley characters
Disney Dreamlight Valley doesn’t restrict the act of unlocking new faces to just one routine mechanic, they can actually be obtained in different ways.
These are the known ways that you add new Disney faces to your world:
- Complete story quests.
- Spend Dreamlight to open up new areas of Dreamlight Valley that contain characters.
- Use Dream Castle to venture into Realms and finish a character arc.
Of these methods, using Dreamlight is obviously the most resource-heavy road to take, and could require a lot of Dream Shards, so make sure you stock up!
