Disney Dreamlight Valley‘s Dreamlight is an essential currency, but it can take quite a while to collect. If you ever find yourself running low, our guide will help you rack up more in no time at all.

One of the best parts of playing Disney Dreamlight Valley is discovering new Realms based on your favorite animated movies and convincing characters like Frozen’s Elsa and Moana’s Maui to come to your island.

To do this, you’ll first need to stock up on Dreamlight. Aside from Star Coins, Dreamlight is the main currency in the game, as it’s required to unlock new Realms and expand the areas you can access on your island.

So, if you’re looking to venture further out than Peaceful Meadow or you want to visit an entirely new Realm based on a movie like Wall-E or Ratatouille, we’ve put together some top tips below to earn more Dreamlight fast.

How to earn more Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Complete your Dreamlight Duties

Dreamlight Duties

The main way to earn Dreamlight is to work through all your Dreamlight Duties. You can find these by navigating to the Dreamlight menu, where six tasks will always be waiting for you to complete.

These Duties are short and simple tasks like foraging for a few vegetables or discussing with a character. The amount of Dreamlight you’ll earn isn’t massive, but the tasks are easy to breeze through, so it can quickly add up.

Work your way through Dreamlight milestones

As well as Dreamlight Duties, you’ll also find specific milestone tasks to complete in the menu. These all revolve around a specific action, such as fishing or cooking, and the rewards improve as you work through each stage.

The best thing about these milestone tasks is that you’ll often find yourself completing them without even realizing it, as they’re all actions that you’ll perform while working through the game’s Realm Quests, Story Quests, and Friendship Quests.

Craft Dreamlight using Dream Shards

There is another way to earn Dreamlight: Crafting! If you visit a crafting bench and look under the Potions & Enchantments section, you can use 10 Dream Shards to craft 250 Dreamlight, with no limit on how much you can make.

While this is definitely the quickest way, we’d advise against doing it unless you’re desperate. Dream Shards are quite rare, and you’ll need them to complete some quests in the future, so it’s always good to keep some safely stored away.

Those are all the ways you can earn more Dreamlight! While you’re here, check out some more Disney Dreamlight Valley guides below:
