Disney Dreamlight Valley Building Guide

Our Disney Dreamlight Valley Building Guide will tell you how Building works and what it costs to build and upgrade the important structures in the game!

Disney Dreamlight Valley Building Basics

Disney Dreamlight Valley Building uses a simple grid-based system that you're likely familiar with. Many Buildings have a cost, but you can also move around existing Buildings -- even the homes of other Villagers!

 

Bear in mind that not everything can be placed everywhere. Ariel's home, for example, must be placed on water. Goofy's Stalls and the Wishing Wells cannot leave the Zones/Villages they spawned in. Other Buildings may have special requirements that prevent them from truly being placed everywhere.

There's one other important thing to note: Trees are required to spawn Wood. I made the mistake of removing many of my trees and found myself awfully short of Wood. Make sure to keep some trees around -- you'll need it for Crafting!

 
 

How to Build in Disney Dreamlight Valley Building Mode

You can build in Disney Dreamlight Valley by opening your inventory and selecting "Furniture." Bear in mind that some items will have to be purchased from Scrooge McDuck, Crafted by you, or earned through Friendship.

Disney Dreamlight Valley House Upgrades

After you've fixed your house, you'll be able to upgrade it from the outside and the inside to gain some neat benefits.
