Disney Dreamlight Valley wants players to collect Dream Shards for various objectives and reasons, so let’s run through the best ways to accumulate them.

Still in its early access period, Disney Dreamlight Valley has captured the hearts and minds of people everywhere, and one of the reasons is because of the plethora of things to do.

One such undertaking is collecting Dream Shards, a useful, but scarce, resource in the world of Disney Dreamlight Valley.

So, we’ve put together a useful guide to try and make this daunting task less time-consuming and less tricky.

Where to obtain Dream Shards in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Dream Shards can be procured in one of two different ways and neither is a particularly quick and easy method that will secure some in the click of a finger.

Let’s run through both roads you can take and you can decide which one would be best for you.

Destroy Night Thorns

With some magical ability under your belt, you can use these skills to rid the area of Night Thorns. Don’t worry though, because once you’ve eradicated Night Thorns from a section of Dreamlight Valley, they will come back the next day.

This essentially provides you with an infinite pipeline of Dream Shards, so make sure you keep getting rid of them all day by day.

Feeding Animals

Another choice to consider is to get the animals of Dreamlight Valley to chow down on their favorite food, it literally has to be their favorite food for this to work, and you’ll be rewarded with Dream Shards to spend.

What do Dream Shards do in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

Put simply, Dream Shards are needed to complete specific quest conditions, but can also be transformed into Dreamlight – another unique item in the game.

Our recommendation is to keep a hold of these, however, and avoid using them for Dreamlight purposes as there are more important uses for Dream Shards. Just keep hoarding them as the rewards you’ll get for using Dream Shards wisely will be worth it.

Even if this guide only gets you a few more Dream Shards, they should help you on your way to a successful time in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
