What is Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

In gameplay terms, Dreamlight is a currency in Disney Dreamlight Valley that is used to unlock new locations on the Map and in the Castle. In lore terms, it can be thought of as a positive emotional "Dream energy" of sorts.

How to Get Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley

There are two core ways to get Dreamlight in Disney Dreamlight Valley:

  1. Completing Dreamlight Duties and other tasks as explained in the Dreamlight menu.
  2. Crafting Dream Shards into Dreamlight.

I cannot emphasize this enough -- do not, under any circumstances, craft Dream Shards into Dreamlight. Dreamlight is easy to get, but Dream Shards can be difficult to come by -- especially later in the game. The only exception is one quest from Merlin that requires you to convert a Dream Shard into Dreamlight -- never do it again after that!

Best Way to Get Dreamlight Fast in Disney Dreamlight Valley

The best way to get Dreamlight Fast is by completing Daily Duties. Once completed, a new Daily Duty will take its place. You can do this pretty much forever, even in the late game.

Things are a little different in the early game -- you haven't earned most of the Dreamlight rewards listed in the menu. Some of these rewards pay out pretty early (such as by planting a handful of Crops). Focus on doing a little bit of everything to hit those easy Dreamlight goals. Once you start piling up the magical currency, you can shift your focus to clearing out the goals one at a time.
