Disney Dreamlight Valley’s update 4 is right around the corner and we have new patch notes from the Pride of the Valley update. Finally, the much-awaited Lion King update is here along with plenty of improvements and bug fixes.

In Disney Dreamlight Valley, the previous update brought Mirabel and Olaf to the valley, and fans have been swooning over the new characters. Gameloft has put together another major update, The Pride of the Valley, due on April 5, 2023, which brings Simba and Nala.

A new Lion King realm in the Dream Castle is also being added but that’s not all. With the update, fans would see significant changes in the game starting with the improved well-fed bonus, changes in the photo mode, and gliding around the map.

In Disney Dreamlight Valley, you can cook various items and can gift them to other villagers to increase your friendship levels. You can consume the meals yourself to gain energy. When your energy bar is full, it will glow with a yellow color meaning your character is well-fed.

The Pride of the Valley update 4 will improve your well-fed bonus and that will allow you to move faster around the map. Similarly, when the well-fed bonus is active, your character will get plenty of chances for critical results like fishing, collecting gems and fruits, mining, and so on. Moreover, now you can simply take a break and sit anywhere in the map to replenish your energy.

Here are the full patch notes for Disney Dreamlight Valley’s Pride of the Valley update including the new content and major bug fixes.
