Disney Dreamlight Valley Patch Notes – April 2023 Lion King Update

Get up to date on the new content coming to the Valley.

Disney Dreamlight Valley's Update 4, due to arrive on April 5, now has some patch notes. More importantly, we have an explanation for the glowing feet seen in Twitter teases. Gameloft will be adding multiple quality-of-life changes to the well-fed bonus that occurs when you eat food and turn your stamina bar yellow.

Not only will you be able to glide and traverse around the Valley faster, you'll also have chances of obtaining more items when you harvest items in the world. New interactions and photo modes will also be available according to the patch notes.

Patch notes for Disney Dreamlight Valley Update 4 (April 2023)

Here are the patch notes for Disney Dreamlight Valley Update 4:

New Content and Improvements:

  • A new Realm door is open in the Dream Castle: The Lion King Realm! 
  • Welcome Simba and Nala to the Valley as you build your very own version of Pride Rock. 
  • Celebrate Disney Parks with the most ambitious and magical Star Path yet! Place your very own Pixar Pal-A-Round, Dumbo the Flying Elephant or Mad Tea Party rides and transform your Valley into the happiest place on earth!
  • Scrooge McDuck’s Store has received a new shipment of exciting new items, including some snazzy bathroom equipment, mushroom-inspired sets and more.
  • New optional items are coming to the Premium Shop for a limited time! Get ready to live your perfect life at sea with Prince Eric’s Boat house Dream Style and meet Dreamlight infused animal companions for the first time. 
  • Enjoy the return of sunny days outside and take part in our Eggstravaganza event from April 8 to 29!
  • Craft new interactive items for your animal companions to give them more to do around your valley, including little houses, feeders and toys.
  • 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.

  1. SO happy about the companions not being in the way anymore! Nothing more frustrating than trying to pick a bonus plant and having them walk right in the way causing me to lose the bonus!
    Now if they could fix the issue when an item you farm bursts into more for the chance at a chest if you get them all in time! Frustrating when they pop into a different area across a river or into an area you haven’t opened yet!
