It introduces new story quests for some of the game’s Disney and Pixar residents along with a Star Path that celebrates Disney Parks’ fans “with exclusive outfits, furniture souvenirs and even Disney Parks attractions.”
After a magical new door opens in the Dream Castle, you are invited to explore The Lion King Realm and meet Simba and Nala. They will help settle you into Valley life and set out on new adventures together – whether that be investigating a possible alien invasion with Buzz or helping Minnie solve a magical problem – to build on your newfound friendship.
This update’s Star Path season will also let you complete Dreamlight Duties to unlock special Disney Parks-themed rewards, which include iconic attractions such as the Mad Tea Party and Pixar Pal-A-Round and new clothing and souvenirs.

- Scrooge McDuck’s Store has received a new shipment of exciting new items, including some snazzy bathroom equipment, mushroom-inspired sets and more.

- A new selfie pose for each of your animal companions is now available in Photo Mode.
- Paging Star Command! It seems like there have been a few more alien sightings in the Valley. You should, uh, talk to Buzz…
- The well-fed bonus that is earned from eating cooked meals has been beefed up! When well-fed, you now get more chances of Critical Results each time you interact with the world (i.e. picking fruits, fishing fish, mining gems, etc.). But that’s not all…
- Get moving with the ability to hover! When the well-fed bonus is active, you can now start channeling your magic to slide around your Valley even faster!
- Take a breath. Sitting down on a bench – or any other object, for that matter – anywhere in the Valley, will now replenish your energy very slowly.
