Star Coins are essential to getting the most out of Disney Dreamlight Valley, so we’ve put together a handy get rich quick guide to help you stock up on that all-important cash.
Disney Dreamlight Valley is a magical life simulator that lets you create your own Pixar-style avatar, decorate your home with tons of themed furniture, and invite your favorite Disney characters like Remy and Wall-E to move to your town.
But even the fantasy world of Dreamlight Valley cannot escape capitalism. Money speaks here – something Scrooge McDuck is sure not to make you forget – and you’ll need plenty of Star Coins if you want to restore your city to its former glory.
Whether you want to upgrade your home to make room for that Buzz Lightyear image you are used to had to buy, or you need more ingredients to cook Merlin’s favorite dish, here are a few ways to earn Star Coins quickly in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
Get more money fast in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Forage crops for fruits and flowers
While it’s certainly not the most lucrative business plan in the game, you can make a decent amount of money simply by picking up fruits, herbs, veggies, and flowers you find while walking around town and then selling them at Goofy’s stall.
This is especially useful at the start of your trip, where money is harder to come by. For example, you can flog a single raspberry for 21 Star Coins or a basil leaf for 25 Star Coins. If you’ve collected a lot of them, that money can add up pretty quickly.
Catch and sell some rare fish
Catching fish may take a little longer than foraging for fruit or flowers, but it’s worth the patience. Watch out for red and blue circles in the water as these usually lead to rarer catches. For example, a swordfish picks up a massive 700 Star Coins.
You can increase your catch by choosing fish as a character’s specialty as you improve your friendship with them. Once you’ve done this, just invite them to ‘hang out’ and there’s a slim chance they’ll throw in a few extra fish if you catch one.
My gems with the pickaxe
Gems are some of the most lucrative items to sell in Disney Dreamlight Valley, but they are also quite rare. To find them, look for tall black rocks along the walls of your city and hit them a few times with your pickaxe.
Gems are not guaranteed to get you, but it’s always worth a try, as rare ones like a shiny amethyst can earn you 2000 Star Coins. Like fishing, you can bring a friend who specializes in mining to potentially get some extra gems.
First unlock Remy and start cooking meals
After reopening the castle in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll be prompted to choose between three realms, each leading to a different Disney character: Moana, Wall-E, or Remy. Complete their mission and they move to your city!
We definitely recommend that you choose Remy first, because the sympathetic rat will teach you a lot of recipes for cooking. Not only can these be given to characters to increase your friendship level, but high-quality meals can also be sold for a decent amount of Star Coins.
Those are some of the best ways to make quick money in Disney Dreamlight Valley. We also have an animal feeding guide, details on how to change your appearance and the locations of all the royal tools.
