How to Unlock Mother Gothel in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Mother Gothel is one of those characters that you don't like almost instantly. Come to find out, because of her practicing dark magic to lock her daughter away in a magic tower, she has unleashed absolute chaos on the Village. As you open up the door to her home within the cursed tree, which is located in the Glade of Trust area, she tells you that you have now re-unleashed the dark magical curse onto the village. It was trapped inside the tree with her, and opening the door to free her has let it back out again. 

Mother Gothel then tells you that you will need to find Merlin to ask him how to stop this dark magic from destroying the Village you just saved all over again, and he tells you that there is only one way, and it is not going to be easy. Of course, now Ursula comes into play, where you must strike up a deal with her in order to rescue the villagers from the magic, and you have to give up something crucial in order for her spell to work; your magic. Trusting Ursula is not something Merlin wants to do, but there is no choice, it is the only way. Ursula gives up her pride to make the spell work, and Merlin gives up his power. You will then need to convince Kristoff to give up his memories of Anna in order to complete the spell, which is actually pretty easy. Just tell him he can fall for Anna all over again, and he agrees. 

From there, you will go to Ursula's cave, where she begins the spell. You learn that you will be entering the void known as the Here and There in order to grab the Orb of Trust, which Mother Gothel has not only thrown out of reach but has placed a spell on to make it untouchable. You become a spectral being as you transfer to the Here and There, and the world around you becomes dark. You will need to venture back to the Glade of Trust, and walk across the broken bridge, since in the Here and There you can walk on air, and grab the Orb of Trust. Once the Orb is in hand, you will need to find the Pillar of Trust nearby and put the Orb back in place to break the curse. 

Once that's done, you will return to the regular world, and Mother Gothel will have been freed from her prison, and the curse will be broken!
