They will need a lot of persuasions to leave their realm. Also, you can invite them through a story quest that you will complete in the game. Characters like Mickey Mouse, Anna, and Elsa can all be invited to live in your Valley.

Then you will be able to hang out with these villagers and build rapport with them by increasing your Friendship Level. This will allow you to unlock exclusive items that will help you in your adventure and help you collect resources as well. 

There are several ways by which you can persuade the Disney characters to come to your valley. Some of them need to be unlocked as well, and most of them require completing a quest and general progression in the main campaign in order to be invited. 

Furthermore, you will need a lot of Dreamlight so that you can afford new Village Biomes and Realms that will allow you to interact with several new characters in the game.

In order to afford the homes that the villagers will need to stay in, make sure that you have plenty of Disney Dreamlight Valley Star Coins as well. Here are all the ways by which you can invite the characters into your valley. 

Friendship And Story Quests 

Probably the most on the way of inviting characters into your valley is through Friendship and Story quests. 

Whenever you complete an overarching Story Quest or a Friendship Quest for a particular character, this character will return to your Dreamlight Valley. For instance, you can invite Minnie Mouse to your village by completing the quest line of Mickey Mouse’s friendship.  

Unlocking The Realms Of Dream Castle 

Another great way of inviting the characters to your Valley is by unlocking Realms in the Dream Castle. The realms of Disney Dreamlight Valley are built around a Disney film. Therefore you will find a relevant character there, like the frozen realm will have Anna and Elsa.

All you need to do is speak to these characters, and if they offer you a quest, you need to complete it so that they can come to your Dreamlight Valley. 

Unlocking New Regions 

Another great way of meeting new characters is by unlocking certain areas. If there is a character that lives in that region and you unlock it, you will automatically gain access to that character too. For instance, if you unlock the Peaceful Meadow, you will unlock Goofy automatically in the game.

However, you will need a Pick Axe for it. 

All Disney Dreamlight Valley Characters

We’ve compiled a list of all the characters that have been released so far in the game. Furthermore, for your convenience, we have also included the process of unlocking each character and how you can get them to join your valley.
