How to Unlock Ursula in Disney Dreamlight Valley

As you progress through the main storyline, Merlin will ask you to go save Ursula the Sea Witch from a cave that has somehow been sealed, trapping her inside. Merlin tells you that she holds on to secrets about The Forgetting and the Nightmare Thorns, so helping her out of the cave is a must. Her cave is located on the upper right side of Dazzle Beach, and once you go inside, you will see her swimming around in a little pool of water straight ahead of the entrance. 

Of course, she will ask you to make a deal with her; you break her out of this magical prison and she will give you a bit of intel she has on the Nightmare Thorns and how the Valley became cursed. The first quest she gives you is to enter a cave directly in the middle of Dazzle Beach. Ursula will give you a magic crystal key to use to unlock the sealed entrance to the cave, and once you are inside you will notice little relics on the ground below. Each relic will give you a riddle to solve in order to unlock the Magic Gates that block you from venturing lower into the cave. 

Ursula's Riddles

The first riddle is quite easy to solve, and you will need to bring one Peridot gem, one Aquamarine gem, and one Garnet Gem into the cave and place them on the statues.

The second riddle is a little more time-consuming, as you will need to plant 3 crops in order to open the next Magic Gate. The riddle asks for a carrot, wheat, and tomato seed to be planted at the feet of the statue. Do so, water them, and wait for them all to completely grow before harvesting them. Once they are fully grown the Magic Gate will open, and you can then harvest them to bring to the final riddle below. 

This last riddle is just a simple cooking quest, where you will have to cook a veggie spaghetti at the stove provided in the cave to open the last Magic Gate. Once done, eat the meal, and the door will open. From there, you will notice an orange ripple in the water to your left-hand side. Pull out your fishing rod and reel in the Orb that is hiding below the water. You will then need to bring that magic orb back to the outside of the cave, where one of the Cursed Pillars is located. Place the orb in that Pillar directly outside of the cave, and Ursula will be set free from the cave she is trapped in. 

In order to get her to move in, you will need to build her a cave of her own in the water. Once done, she will now be a permanent resident in your village and will give you more quests to progress in the game. One of the biggest downsides to Ursula is that she is a water-bound character. That means getting to her sometimes can be quite a task. The easiest workaround for this we have found is to make sure you are completely alone on Dazzle Beach, and that she is slightly nearby in the water. Pull out your fishing pole and just cast out anywhere into the open water. This will prompt her to swim towards you to watch you fish, and you can reel your line back in quickly by canceling the fishing action, and pressing "E" to interact with her before she swims off. 

We recommend working on Ursula's quests first, as again it is hard to reach her.
