Hey Valley Villagers!
In today’s blog post, we’re bringing you a first look at the extensive future plans for Disney Dreamlight Valley.
UNVEILING OUR EXPANSION PASS IN FIRST-EVER SHOWCASE ON NOVEMBER 1st @ 1:00 PM ET (6:00 PM CET)
Today, we are excited to announce the arrival of Disney Dreamlight Valley: A Rift in Time, a paid Expansion Pass coming to Disney Dreamlight Valley this December 5th.
To learn more, we invite you to join us for our first-ever showcase this November 1st at 1:00 PM ET (6:00 PM CET), streamed on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook Live! During the stream, we will dive into the Expansion Pass, showing off this all-new adventure across Eternity Isle where you’ll meet new friends, discover new biomes, and immerse yourself in new gameplay features. In addition, key members of the Disney Dreamlight Valley team will reminisce over their favorite moments from the past year, give you a glimpse at upcoming updates, and unveil much-anticipated multiplayer features.
We can’t wait to share more next week, but ahead of the stream, there are a few other key updates we would like to share today.
GLOBAL LAUNCH ON DECEMBER 5th
Early Access has been incredibly valuable for the entire Disney Dreamlight Valley team. Thanks to your enthusiasm and participation over the past year, we have had the chance to build the game we aspired to, while implementing your feedback to make the Valley experience even more magical. Reflecting on the journey we’ve been on with all of you, we’re so excited to share that on December 5th, Disney Dreamlight Valley will be leaving Early Access.
As we transition to launch, existing players will keep their access to the game, their Moonstones, and their save game.
AN UPDATE ON FREE-TO-PLAY
As we look ahead to the official launch, with the learnings we've gained from Early Access, we’ve made the decision to remain a paid game for the foreseeable future. This means we will not make the transition to be a free-to-play game when we leave Early Access on December 5th.
This choice ensures that Disney Dreamlight Valley will be able to continue delivering on a premium game experience for all players. It's important to us that we maintain our promise to keep delivering free content updates that add new characters, realms, clothing, furniture, and more surprises to your Valley. Purchases requiring moonstones will remain optional, fair, and match the level of quality players have come to expect. Players will still be able to collect free Moonstones via Dream Snaps and Chests, or optionally choose to purchase them.
LAUNCH GAME EDITIONS FOR NEW PLAYERS COMING DECEMBER 5
Moving forward, Founder’s Packs will continue to be available through December 4th. When we transition out of Early Access on December 5th, we’ll be unveiling all-new editions. New players can choose to purchase the core game (with bonus Moonstones) on its own, or opt for the Gold Edition, which includes exclusive cosmetic items, access to the A Rift In Time expansion, and even more bonus Moonstones. Take a look at the exact contents below:
As a thank you to our Early Access players, all unique cosmetic items included in the upcoming Gold Edition will be given free of charge to any player who purchases and claims a Founder’s Pack in-game on or before December 4th, no matter the tier. Not only that, but all Founders will also receive 2,500 Moonstones to celebrate this exciting moment!
DISNEY DREAMLIGHT VALLEY: COZY EDITION
As a final note, the Disney Dreamlight Valley: Cozy Edition, a special retail-exclusive edition, is now available for Nintendo Switch™ across North America. The Cozy Edition will be released globally for PlayStation 5®, PlayStation 4®, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch™ on November 10th.

On behalf of the Disney Dreamlight Valley team, we want to thank all of our wonderful players around the world for their continued, unbridled passion. We’re excited to bring you even more magical experiences for years to come. We’ll see you on November 1st!
