How to get more money fast in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Forage for fruits and flowers

While it’s certainly not the most lucrative business plan in the game, you can actually earn a decent amount of money by simply picking up fruits, herbs, vegetables, and flowers that you find while walking around town and then selling them at Goofy’s stall.

This is especially useful at the start of your journey where money is harder to come by. For example, you can flog a single raspberry for 21 Star Coins or a leaf of basil for 25 Star Coins. If you’ve collected a lot of them, that money can add up quite fast.

Catch and sell some rare fish

Catching fish might take a little longer than foraging for fruit or flowers, but it’s worth the patience. Be on the lookout for red and blue circles in the water as these usually lead to rarer catches. For example, one Swordfish fetches a huge 700 Star Coins.

You can boost your haul by choosing fishing as a character’s specialty when you level up your friendship with them. Once you’ve done this, simply invite them to ‘hang out’ and there will be a small chance they’ll throw in a few extra fish when you catch one.

Mine gems with the pickaxe

Gems are some of the most lucrative items you can sell in Disney Dreamlight Valley, but they’re also quite rare. To find them, you’ll need to keep an eye out for tall black rocks along the walls of your town and hit them a few times with your pickaxe.

It’s not guaranteed that you’ll get any gems, but it’s always worth giving it a go, as rare ones like a Shiny Amethyst can sell for 2000 Star Coins. Just like fishing, you can bring along a friend that specializes in mining to potentially get some extra gems.

Unlock Remy first and start cooking meals

We definitely recommend choosing Remy first, as the loveable rat will teach you a bunch of recipes to cook. Not only can these be given to characters to increase your friendship level, but high-rated meals can also be sold for a decent amount of Star Coins.

Use the souffle method to farm Star Coins

One tip for farming Star Coins that’s been shared by many YouTubers is the souffle method. You can buy all the ingredients needed for this recipe from Chez Remy, which cuts out the need to grow crops or pick fruit from trees, and there’s an unlimited supply available.

The key to this method is to temporarily move Chez Remy next to Goofy’s Stall. Use your Star Coins to purchase as many of the four ingredients (Cheese, Butter, Eggs, and Milk) as you can. Cook multiple souffle then head to Goofy’s Stall to sell them. Then simply rinse and repeat!

There are two things you can do to speed up this process: Place a stove next to Goofy’s Stall as cooking will be quicker without Remy’s animations at Chez Remy, then use the souffle recipe to ‘autofill’ the cooking pot with all four ingredients to save you selecting them individually.

The profit from selling an individual souffle isn’t amazing, but if you make hundreds of them you can make a pretty decent amount of Star Coins in quite a short amount of time.

Create a pumpkin farm

It will probably take you many days or even weeks to unlock the Forgotten Lands biome, but once you’re there you’ll get access to the most valuable vegetable in Disney Dreamlight Valley: Pumpkins!

Pumpkin seeds can be purchased from Goofy’s stall once it’s been repaired. While a single seed costs 275 Star Coins, a fully-grown pumpkin can be sold for 664 Star coins. If you’ve got a whole farm of them growing on repeat, that can turn into a pretty nice profit!

Remember to bring along a character that specializes in gardening for a chance to get some extra pumpkins when collecting them all. They do take quite a while to grow so you’ll definitely want to maximize your rewards.
