Disney Dreamlight Valley Dreamlight is an important currency that you need to unlock new areas of the valley and extra Realms in the castle. If you want to persuade as many Disney Dreamlight Valley characters as possible to join your village, you'll want to accrue plenty of Dreamlight to quickly unlock new areas! However, at the start of the game, Dreamlight is much harder to come by, and you'll be pretty restricted in what you can unlock beyond the Plaza and the Peaceful Meadow - the Dream Castle will be one of your first unlocks but costs 2,000 Dreamlight.
With that said, so long as you're pretty active in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you'll quickly rack up the Dreamlight as doing almost anything contributes towards various challenges that award the stuff. Here's everything you need to know about earning Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
How to get Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley
We've got 10 tips for Disney Dreamlight Valley right here!
The main way to get more Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley is to complete the tasks that are listed in the Dreamlight Menu, and these fall into two categories. The first is Dreamlight Duties, which are short tasks that can be completed in the Valley, and there will always be six of these available. As these are usually quite basic, such as taking a picture or having a daily discussion with another character, they provide a quick and easy route to rack up Dreamlight.
The rest of the tasks in the Dreamlight Menu are divided up into sections such as Fishing, Cooking, and Friendship, with each of them containing a set of assignments under that heading. These are completed in multiple stages with increasingly large cumulative targets to hit, with your progress shown by the bar filling in as you tick off each level. The rewards start off small, but increase for every stage of the task you complete, so keep working towards them and over time you'll receive a handy stream of Dreamlight.
Whenever you see the on-screen notification that you've completed one or more of your Dreamlight tasks, make sure you open the menu then follow the notification marker to the relevant assignment, as until you manually collect it through this screen the Dreamlight won't be added to your total balance.

The other way to get Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley is to craft it from Dream Shards, which you can find anywhere while foraging and removing Night Thorns. To do this, interact with a crafting bench such as the one outside Goofy's house in Peaceful Meadow or inside Scrooge McDuck's shop in the Plaza, then select Dreamlight under the Potion & Enchantment tab. You can craft 250 Dreamlight from 10 Dream Shards, and there's no limit to how much you can create this way – though bear in mind that Dream Shards are a material that is also required for certain other quests, so you should make sure you keep some in reserve for them and don't use them all up at once!
Those are the main methods of getting Dreamlight as you can't get it from selling items as you can with Star Coins in Disney Dreamlight Valley. As well as Dreamlight and Star Coins, there's also a premium currency called Moonstones which you can get through any of the three Disney Dreamlight Valley Founder's Packs.
