When is the next Dreamlight Valley update release date?

With another Dreamlight Valley update always on the way, and new Disney and Pixar faces joining the valley every few weeks, here’s who’s next.

What is the next Dreamlight Valley update? Each new Dreamlight Valley update adds new characters, features, and quests to the life sim, and the roster of Dreamlight Valley residents has expanded so much already – and shows no signs of slowing down. Fans on social media have previously requested the likes of Cinderella, Belle, and Stitch, and with Cinders the only one missing now, we know Gameloft is listening.

Disney Dreamlight Valley has never been better thanks to the colorful life game‘s new characters and mechanics. Its vibrant community makes it even better, especially with more multiplayer functions being added, and a paid DLC brings even more biomes and residents to your valley if you want them. Even if you don’t want to splash out on paid content, there are still plenty of new Dreamlight Valley recipes, characters, realms, and more added to the base game regularly, so here’s everything we know about the next free Dreamlight Valley update.

Next Dreamlight Valley update

The next Dreamlight Valley update release date has been announced for June 26, 2024. The Lucky Dragon update brings Mulan and Mushu to the valley via their own Realm.

According to a video on X (previously Twitter), Mulan will be first to arrive in your valley once you visit her realm and complete some quests. Then, you also have the chance to invite tiny comedic dragon Mushu to join her. Mulan and Mushu’s Realm arrive just eight weeks after the massive Thrills and Frills update.

Thrills and Frills was not only a massive free content update on its own, but it also coincided with the release of the next Rift in Time DLC act, The Spark of Imagination. Even without the paid content, though, you can welcome a new character to your valley, embark on some joyful new friendship quests, and test out your fashion sense in the new village Boutique.

According to the roadmap below, another update is hot on the heels of Mulan as Tiana – and maybe even her frog prince – join in the Summer.

Dreamlight Valley update schedule

Update 7 pretty much reverted to the standard two-monthly schedule that Gameloft has stuck to so far, following the DreamSnaps outlier. The December update kept this trend going, and with the Laugh Floor arriving in February, we’re firmly back on track. However, we could be on track for even more regular updates this year.

All previous Dreamlight Valley updates:

  • May 1, 2024: Help Daisy Duck beautify the valley in the Thrills and Frills update.
  • February 28, 2024: The Laugh Floor brings Mike and Sulley through the door and into the human realm.

  • July 19, 2023: In the DreamSnaps update, take your best trackside photos as Vanellope Von Schweetz races into the valley, and a new photo contest is released.
  • June 6, 2023: Update 5, The Remembering, reveals the Fairy Godmother as the resident of the pumpkin house, and adds a massive new storyline in which you come face to face with The Forgetting themselves.
  • April 5, 2023: Update 4, Pride of the Valley, adds a The Lion King realm, in which a story unravels starring Simba and Nala – and a lot of Hyenas. There’s also a new surprise when you increase your friendship with Buzz.
  • February 16, 2023: A Festival of Friendship reunites Olaf with Elsa, introducing us to Mirabel Madrigal and the Mini-Casita.

  • October 19, 2023: Scar’s Kingdom adds Dreamlight Valley Scar quests to the Disney game, revealing the new Mines, and new resources.

That’s everything we know about what might be coming in the next Dreamlight Valley update and its release date, but that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to keep you busy right now. Ensure you’re not missing out on the latest Dreamlight Valley codes, and level up all the Dreamlight Valley characters already in the life game by giving them their favorite gifts, including some Dreamlight Valley recipes, and make sure you’re ready to go when the new arrivals get here.
