Simba in Disney dreamlight valley

The Lion King has arrived in the Disney Dreamlight Valley. Before you can unlock him, there are a few things that need to be done so we’re breaking down everything you need to do to bring back Simba for good in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Disney Dreamlight Valley’s Pride of the Valley update is what we all have been waiting for. Fans have been eager to unlock both Simba and Nala back to the valley. Although, it’s not an easy task. Before you unlock Simba, you need to unlock the Lion King realm and Nala.

After completing an extensive quest, Eyes in the Dark, to bring Nala back to the valley, Simba’s unlocking quest, Stars to Guide Us, will begin automatically. Once the quest begins, you will need to complete the following tasks to officially welcome back Simba to the Valley.

The first task in bringing Simba to the Disney Dreamlight Valley requires you to craft a Rafiki’s Walking Stick. To make this, you will need to speak to Merlin. He will tell you to craft this item using the following materials:

  • 5 Fiber: To craft fiber, you need seaweed. You can get seaweed by fishing in any of the waterbodies of the biome.
  • 5 Softwood: You can find them from the Forest of Valor, Peaceful Meadow, and Glade of Trust.
  • 2 Purified Night Shards: To craft purified night shards, you need five night shards and one dream shard.

Once you have all the items, head to a crafting station to make the Rafiki’s Walking Stick. Take the stick to Simba. Take the log bridge near the waterfall that you lowered down during the Eyes in the Dark quest for Nala. You will be able to spot Simba in the interiors of the jungle.
