Disney Dreamlight Valley: How To Time Travel (And Why You Shouldn’t Do It!)

A common trick you'll want to avoid.

how to time travel in disney dreamlight valley

Disney Dreamlight Valley follows a daily schedule of events — depending on your day and the various timers running down using your system clock — different things will happen. Chests will appear daily. New quests will begin. Crops will grow. Lots of events and triggers are dependent on the in-game clock, and players can manipulate that clock pretty easily. If you’re familiar at all with Animal Crossing , you’ll be familiar with Time Travel . It works by the same principles, and it is also a mistake to try it here .

Time-travelling is not how the game was intended to be played, and the developers have stated that any bugs related to time travel are low-priority for fixing. Using time travel, even for a few hours, can permanently ruin your game . The #1 reason to time-travel originally was to farm for Dream Shards . As of the recent September patch, Dream Shards are no longer an issue and can be collected easily from daily glowing dig sites or feeding animals.

Below, I’ll explain exactly how to Time Travel — but seriously, you don’t want to do this. Not only can you lose 50+ hours of progress, but you can potentially lock your game progress, forcing you to restart from scratch if you want to experience everything the game has to offer. You don’t risk banning, you just risk causing in-game bugs that the developers aren’t likely to fix anytime soon.

How Time Travel Works

Time travel is a trick used to jump ahead in time and progress faster — in Disney Dreamlight Valley , time travel can be used to spawn daily chests faster, grow crops, change the time of day, or unlock new daily quests. Disney Dreamlight Valley uses your system internal clock, so all you have to do to change the time in your game is to change the time on your system .

  • Go to Settings -> Date & Time -> Toggle Off “ Set time automatically “
  • Under Set the date and time manually -> Select “ Change “

You can also change the time zone without turning off automatic time setting.

  • Go to Setting (Gear Icon) -> Profile & System -> Settings -> System -> Time
  • Change the Time Zone from the dropdown menu.

Xbox time cannot be changed while connected to Xbox Live, so you can only change your time zone. Select a time zone that’s a day or more off — it can be trickier to do, but still saves some time.

Now let’s talk about why you shouldn’t use time travel .

  • Using Time Travel can lock you out of progression randomly. Nobody knows exactly what causes time travel to go haywire, it just happens. Even if you’ve only done it once.
  • Once you’re locked out of progression, you’ll have to reset your save file completely . You’ll lose everything and have to restart from scratch. That could be 50+ hours of work down the drain instantly. And you won’t know that everything is messed up right away.

The devs have already stated that bugs related to time travel are low-priority — they may never fix these issues as they’re not how the game was intended to be played. The rewards are relatively small for time travelling, but the drawbacks are enormous. Seriously, don’t do it !

Time Traveling Errors and Fixes in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Disney Dreamlight Valley Time Travel cover

Time traveling or time skipping is an action that players do to progress through time in games that have their time synchronized to real time. This is usually done by adjusting the clock within the console or the PC to a future date, and since the game’s time follows this clock, the time in the game will change as well. The reasons for doing so may differ from player to player, but it is mostly about being able to progress through the game faster without having to wait.

Since Disney Dreamlight Valley also runs on real time, some players who are familiar of time traveling from their days of playing Animal Crossing have also tried doing it in the game with the expectation of going into a harvest without waiting for hours. It works, however some players who have tried to travel back to the proper time have experienced some repercussions.

In this guide, we will talk about how time traveling works in Disney Dreamlight Valley, what errors might come up, and how to fix or save a broken save file.

Time Traveling Errors in Disney Dreamlight Valley

When players who have time traveled forward into a future date and then traveled back into the proper date, they found themselves facing many issues regarding several stuff in their valleys such as:

  • Crops cannot be harvested
  • Crops are constantly withered and cannot be watered
  • Fishing spots stop working

Though this can be easily remedied by traveling back to the future date, this might cause further issues once the game starts implementing in-game events.

Time Traveling Error Fixes

One way to fix the issues brought by time traveling is to travel back to the proper time and date, then wait it out until the time in the game (“future” time) matches real time. For example:

  • Today is October 10, you time travel to October 17.
  • The game’s date is now set to October 17 and it will continue moving forward if not set back.
  • Switch the date back to the current date; October 10, 11, or whichever the current real date is.
  • Wait until October 17 in real time and then you can log back in the game.

Once real time has caught up to the game time, the game will fix itself and the previously bugged activities in the game should resume working properly. You can log in to the game while waiting for real time to catch up, but your actions will be limited to whatever was not affected by the time traveling errors.

Obviously, this would only be viable if the timespan between real time and game time is just a couple of days or weeks, and it would also depend on how willing the player is to wait for the game to fix itself. If the waiting time takes months, or even a year, a better option would be to just delete the save file and start all over. But before doing so, it’s best to know that there is still a way to save some of your items.

how to time travel in disney dreamlight valley

Perform a Cloud Save before starting a new game

You can try to save some of the items that you’ve gathered from your existing save file when going into a new save file by just making sure to perform a cloud save. In order to do this, you must first set the time back to the correct one as cloud saving will not proceed if the game detects that the time does not match up.

Then, you can go ahead and start a new game. After going through the character creation and the starting steps, you should be able to check your inventory and find your items from your previous save file still in it.

Will the time traveling errors be fixed for Disney Dreamlight Valley?

In a post made by a dev in a Disney Dreamlight Valley Discord channel, they have announced that since the game is in early access and time traveling is not an intended part of the gaming experience for the game, they are not prioritizing the fix for any of the unintended issues brought about by time traveling.

Whether or not a patch will come out to solve the time traveling issues, it’s recommended to stay away from the timey-wimey stuff for now.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Time Travel Bug - How To Fix the Error

We'll let you know how to fix the Disney Dreamlight Valley time travel bug.

The Magic Kingdom, but covered in darkness - Dreamlight Valley time travel bug

Published: Sep 26, 2022, 10:01 Updated: Aug 17, 2023, 4:12

The Disney Dreamlight Valley time travel bug won't tear a hole in the space-time continuum, but it will make it next to impossible to play Dreamlight Valley if it happens to you.

Of course, this shouldn't be a surprise. Even the merest knowledge of popular culture tells us that time travel pretty much never ends well. And even in a Disney fantasy world, that seems to ring true. We'll call this McFly's law of unintended consequences.

Luckily, we can explain what's going on. Imagine us resembling Doc Brown and stating all this with a similarly wide-eyed, manic delivery. We'll help you fix the Disney Dreamlight Valley time travel bug, but we can't do anything about your kids.

How To Fix The Disney Dreamlight Valley Time Travel Bug

If you find yourself suffering from the Dreamlight Valley time travel bug, there is currently only one fix available to you.

You will simply have to wait until the date you skipped to is in sync with the date in real life. So we hope for your sake that you didn't time travel thirty years into the future. If that's you, then you may need to start a new game.

As we said before, time travel almost never ends well. But what exactly is going on with this error? We'll explain why it's happening, next.

What Is The Dreamlight Valley Time Travel Bug?

If you're a player of Dreamlight Valley, you'll be all too familiar with the many errors that have been affecting the game. Examples include the Dreamlight Valley cloud save error , and Dreamlight Valley crashes .

While a patch has been released to address these and a number of other issues, the patch itself seems to have triggered a series of new issues.

In particular, players are struggling to find items or collect items, thus making it difficult to make any further progress with the game.

As a result, players have been resorting to time skipping (changing the time on their PC or console to make the game think the time is later than it actually is) in an effort to bypass cooldowns and resets, and make items respawn.

While this does seem to work in some cases, for others, the time travel bug actually exascerbates the situation, with players reporting major issues with progress being reset, respawns stopping altogether, and more. In some cases, players are having to reset their progress completely, and start again.

It seems to be a fairly serious issue that renders the game close to unplayable. And the initial bug that time travel is intended to overcome isn't a great deal better.

It's likely that such a serious bug will be addressed in another, future patch. So keep your eyes peeled for any further game updates, and install these as soon as you can, in the hope that they will resolve this issue.

Having said which, maybe Disney will take the view that people shouldn't be trying to circumvent respawns by time travelling in the first place. In which case you may be stuck, while they prioritise other issues.

Basically, don't time travel, as you risk breaking your game.

Disney Dreamlight Valley | Using time travel to get Dream Shards

In this brand-new life-sim adventure game, play as the heroes and villains from Disney and Pixar as you explore rich tales and create the ideal town. Welcome to Disney Dreamlight Valley. The only time you should use this guide is in an emergency!

Time Traveling to get Dream Shards In Disney Dreamlight Valley

I hope you find this guide useful. Let’s jump right in!

Mother Gothels Quest

After the Glade of Trust Biome is unlocked, be careful with Mother Gothels Quest! If you don’t have 5 Dream Shards available in your inventory when you start the quest, you CAN NOT go into the tree home or speak to Mother Gothel!

If you do, the game will lock you out since every character, stall, and building will be closed off, rendering you unable to play it properly until you obtain the shards. Here’s what I advise you to do if you’ve already tried this and are still having trouble.

  • While it’s still unusual and extremely rare, feeding animals their FAVORITE foods have the potential to cause shards to drop.
  • Ten-night vines are intended to spawn once a day; wait for them to arrive and cross your fingers

Keep in mind that they are exceedingly difficult to find and that failure to obtain them could prevent you from playing regularly for up to a week. The developers have said they plan to enhance shards, in known issues, but we don’t know when that will happen, so you’ll simply have to wait.

Unlock the new biome to obtain access to the new Night Vines in that location. If you’ve finished unlocking and clearing everything you can, for the time being, you may use your furniture tab to transport your good teleport around the planet to be placed on the side that is blocked off by bridges so you can try those night vines for a chance at more. This is quite beneficial!

Difficult and perhaps disastrous, but if you’re desperate, you can time travel as I did.

Guidelines for time travel both before and after

WARNING: Time travel is currently quite dangerous, so even if you follow these steps, you can run into issues where your plants, rocks, herbs, and mushrooms, among other things, freeze and become unharvestable or fail to respawn at all.

You should only do this at your own risk because glitches may still exist until these problems are fixed. If you’re stuck on the Cursed mission and unable to continue the game, you should only utilize this in an emergency. You should be able to accomplish this for switch and PC users by simply switching your time setting from automatic to manual. 

homepage screenshot SS 8 2 c6d079308f

Important: Complete the following before logging out of your current save!

Remove ALL crops. Absolutely nothing should be sown; otherwise, it will freeze before it can be harvested. Don’t take anything from the earth that will reappear, such as fruits, shrubs, mining rocks, or herbs. BEFORE moving forward in time, let everything spawn in.

If time travel is tampered with, all of these will become bugged. To allow everything to respawn before time travel, I’d suggest simply going AFK for a while. Change your time after you’ve logged out and verified that everything has spawned in.

I suggest starting with the mornings or afternoons and moving on to nighttime if you don’t see any night vines. If not, move on to the following day and repeat the process. It may take some time because there is only a little possibility to obtain the shards from night vines, which only sprout ten every day.

When the time changes, be careful to log out and start your game over. It’s crucial that you continue to not touch anything in the future when you’re ahead. And by anything, I mean. You are simply there for the vines; don’t harvest or Mine anything.

They won’t respawn much longer, so if you mess up and return to normal time, you’ll miss them.

Keep doing this until you have all the shards you need to complete the task. When it’s done, you can log out, save, and reset the clock in your game. You should have little issues with your harvests if you followed my suggestions, and you may resume playing normally.

  • If you find anything is not spawning or cannot be harvested after returning to normal time and you are in dire need of this item, you can time travel ahead once more using the same techniques to obtain that item.
  • Make sure the time is the same as or later than the previous time you traveled.

When absolutely necessary, like in this cursed quest, time travel should be performed. Otherwise, I do not advise the risk! Good fortune!

Im not getting red mushrooms for annas quest i need three i have onky found one

The Glade of Trust region, close to Mother Gothel’s House, is where you can discover the Red Mushrooms. If you walk around Mother Gothel’s house, which is located inside the tree in the centre of the Glade of Trust region, you’ll see various shining objects on the ground. You must locate three of the red mushrooms surrounding the tree in order to obtain the shining goodies.

Find the red mushrooms around the tree and gather them so you can make the enchanted ring that will revive Kristoff’s memories.

Can You Time Travel In Disney Dreamlight Valley?

Image of Shaun Cichacki

If you’re looking to complete quests without needing to wait all day, you may be wondering if you’re able to skip through time in  Disney Dreamlight Valley . With  certain quests , you’ll need to check your budding town out multiple times a day, so you’ll be able to claim all of the items you need at once. But, what if there was a way to do so without needing to wait all day?

A trick that has been used by  Animal Crossing   players for years,  Time Traveling will allow you to change the clock on your  system of choice , giving you a chance to skip around to whatever time of day you’ll need, so you can accomplish more in a single play session than ever before. Let’s find out if you’re able to utilize this little trick in  Disney Dreamlight Valley!

Should You Time Travel In Disney Dreamlight Valley?

If you’re looking to jump around the timeline in  Dreamlight Valley , you’ll be glad to know that you are  in fact, able to Time Travel in the game.  However, it is  extremely risky to do this, as you could completely  corrupt your game , due to some  game-breaking bugs that will leave you unable to progress in the game.

With  Disney Dreamlight Valley being released in an  Early Access state , there are plenty of bugs and glitches, with some being just generally cosmetic, to others being slightly more obnoxious. Thankfully, with the most recent patch that has come out, players are finally able to find and catch  a Glittering Herring without needing to pull out their hair.

The main reason that you should not Time Travel in this game, is because you will not be able to progress at all. It will completely crash your game where you stand, and you’ll more than likely need to reset all of your progress to be able to continue or wait until the developers push out an update that could fix these progression issues. Still, they’re currently not worried about those as much as getting higher priority fixes pushed out.

At this time, while you may be able to complete the quest that you’re working on, there is  no reason to Time Travel in Disney Dreamlight Valley, especially with the risk of completely destroying your ability to progress in the game. Items will stop respawning, shops will stop rotating, and more, leaving you to need to restart your game in full.

If you’re loving everything that this game has to offer, make sure that you’re checking out our  Disney Dreamlight Valley Guide Section , where you’ll be able to find out  where to get your hands on plenty of Mushrooms , where you’ll need to go to get  lots of Sand fast , and how to  unlock Mother Gothel ! 

Disney Dreamlight Valley is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Time Travel Bug Disney Dreamlight Valley, Time Change Glitch

Home » Guides » Time Travel Bug Disney Dreamlight Valley, Time Change Glitch

Did Disney Dreamlight Valley become completely unplayable when you changed your system time? Disney Dreamlight Valley, the gorgeous-looking Animal Crossing-like adventure game, has quickly become a smashing hit in just a week since its release. As it turns out, exploring different realms of our childhood stories, and hanging out with iconic Disney and Pixar characters, is a rather enjoyable experience. However, given that the game uses real-life time in order to govern various in-game activities, cooldowns, reset timers, etc, some players have resorted to a good-old time travel trick. Unfortunately, it seems that changing system time completely messes up the game. In this guide, we explain the Disney Dreamlight Valley Time Travel glitch. And we explore if system time change bugs can be fixed.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Time Travel Bug, Time Change Glitch Fix

Can you Fix Time Travel Bugs in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

Many players have tried using the time travel method in Disney Dreamlight Valley in order to bypass real-life time resets and cooldowns . And, instead of being a solution for their impatience, it has become a doom day for their playthrough. As it stands, the real-life system time change will make your Disney Dreamlight Valley run absolutely bugged and riddled with glitches. Currently, players report numerous bugs related to this. Including star pass progress reset, unlootable crops, fruit and fishes stopping respawning, and so on.

Ultimately, time travel creates a series of game-braking bugs which will completely brick your game. It will lock you out of any further progress, and make your run unplayable. Thus, it’s imperative for this game not to mess with the system time change. Do not try to do time travelling in Disney Dreamlight Valley . For now, the only possible fix for this issue we’ve heard about is the one shared by Reddit user u/Chabb . They state that “ If you time travelled, your resources and the shop won’t rotate until the date you fast travelled to is in sync with real life. “.

So there you have it. Unlike in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, where time-travelling is easy and without consequences, here it will ruin your game. This is most likely because Disney Dreamlight Valley is a free-to-play game with microtransactions. And AC: NH is a fully-priced title without microtransactions. If we find more potential solutions, we will update our guide. But for now, let’s strongly emphasize once again: Do not mess with time travel in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

hi i just bought a game for my daughter and she did time travel tried to fix it but its doesent help and later my daughter told me that she time traveled again and now its all mixed up as we dont know what date she was put on and we cant do anything in game as all is stuck .is there any way i can know what the date i was travel and when its will back to normal.or i must restart the game and start over again but in this case will i lose all characters and they houses and upgrates if i restart game?

I time travelled without knowing the consequences andaccepted that I have to wait 3 weeks to play again. Now – five days after the date was synced up again – the quest crops for scar and stitch won’t grow now, because I planted them before time traveling. Now I have to water them really often and can’t go on with the storyline with those two characters. I’m really pissed off!!

Great, I have to want til June if this is the case. I was stupid and curious about finding out how the world would have less rain in the summer….. I now I cant harvest ANY herbs and all tasks at this moment needs some kind of herb. SUPER FRUSTRATING! Fix it Disney!

Well, isn’t this special. Thanks Disney for taking my money and having no care to live up to your end of the deal. Time travel bugs are low priority? Everybody has their own life happening and different reasons for needing to change the time. But you think penalizing everybody is the answer. This is so un-Disney. The game is ruined and I will never play again. Back to Animal Crossing… thanks for ruining my fun. Because at the end of the day it is for fun! Guess it is more about profit and taking our money.

My game is stuck… it’s like the movie Groundhog Day every time I log in and the part that is frustrating for me is I did NOT time travel in Dreamlight Valley, only in ACNH but when I logged into DLV after resetting my clock it was glitched:( I too have spent money $30 for early access and $9 for star path coins. So disappointing. Please guys fix this!!

“imptience”.. I guess you don’t understand work and that some people don’t have that time to wait for things..

FIX: Fast travel past the original time you first fast traveled from. Ex: If you originally fast traveled backwards two days, fast travel forwards three-four days. I don’t know if this works if you fast travel forward originally, cause I fast traveled backwards, but this fixed my problem.

I had time traveled at night time to make the Sunlit Plateu look nicer, but I traveled only a few hours back on the same date. Is my game stuck forever? It was yesterday and now I realized it today. Do I have to time skip again?

This is so frustrating! I time traveled to complete as quest task and now just about everything is buged. Wood, fruits, and mining rocks wont respawn in the areas I had unlocked at the time (areas I’ve unlocked after are seemingly alright along with some rocks I hadn’t touched during the TT) and I can’t harvest herbs and what not. I don’t even remember if it was two, three, or even four days I’d advanced. I really hope they fix this issue.

does anyone know if reseting the game fixes this?

It does not fix the issue. I think I have reset it many times and even redownloaded the game. its the issue with the saves and the cloud saving in my opinion

i had an issue where a crop was not growing even days after all the rest had matured and been harvested. The only solution I found online was to time travel. I tried one day and no luck. I tried five days and still nothing. When I reconnected to the internet I was unable to harvest any herbs (basil, mushrooms, vanilla). Once the real date matched the date I time traveled to the issue was fixed. I still have the problem with the crop not growing and now there’s two of them. I hope the next update either fixes this or gives us the ability to dig up a crop before it’s ready to harvest. I’ve mistakenly planted a crop more than once and had to wait for it to finish.

Hey did the time you traveled to have to catch up to? Today’s the date I traveled to, but not the time yet, and still things arnt spawning and scrooges shop didn’t change?

It would’ve been nice if they had given us a heads up and not left us to our own suffices about Time Traveling. Not only van I not harvest my basil and Oregano, but also mushrooms. My crops started wilting, even after I re watered them and it won’t allow me to even uproot them and replant them. I now have to make even more holes in my garden to plant fresh crops. I purchased the $70 deluxe version and I’m not restarting the game when I’ve already progressed quite far in the game. An update needs to fix this issue or I’m going to ask Nintendo for a full refund. I’m also out a joycon until they repair my L trigger button on my brand new Animal Crossing joycon, so I’m left to play with a pro controller and without handheld for the next two weeks.

I didn’t even attempt to time travel i just transfered my cloud save data onto a switch that was not synced to the correct date. I bought this game for my wife and downloaded it onto my switch for us both to play, After 3 weeks of sharing my switch and switching accounts to play the game I ended up liking it so much that I purchased another game and downloaded it onto her switch so we could both play at the same time. I then transferred my save data onto her switch which I didn’t notice was not set to the correct date. As soon as I synced I noticed all these glitches…. I am honestly so frustrated that I don’t even want to play anymore, I can’t pick up mushrooms, herbs, 2 rocks from the forest of Valor are not responding and scrooges store does not update items day after day. 3 weeks of hard work went to trash.

I agree I had my clock set two days in future for ACNH. Im also a Night Shift worker and stay up all night on my days off so if you play ACNH the shops are closed at night. I downloaded this game and realized immediately it has glitches. The music started to spasm. The tasks weren’t keeping track of progress. The Scrooge sign task which has you place 4 signs says I o Lu placed 2/4. And it doesn’t let you make anymore. You have to pay a ridiculous amount of coin for more signs. Mickeys tasks weren’t keeping track either. So I set the clock back to the j ferner keeping track. And now everything isn’t spawning anymore so I’m at a stand still for 2 days I guess…so frustrating

I was playing when our power went out logged back in power came back on did not realize that my clock is not set to my Internet so now I am sitting here with 300 pumpkins and I can do nothing with harvesting anything not happy about this at all I have over 400 hours to sit here and can’t do nothing I can not start over bull****

Did your game work after you waited out the days?

Except that it’s NOT free-to-play right now. I spent $31 for it on switch, had no clue about any issues because it doesn’t tell you not to do that and I didn’t psychically know, and now I have a completely broken game with no way to fix it. “Wait until the in game date is the same as the current date” well that doesn’t help when you went back in time does it? My animal crossing town is still in 2021, my switch is set to work with animal crossing. It had literally nothing to do with this stupid game and they have to be butts about it. And anyway, we PAID YOU for early access and the fix is “just don’t play it and wait.” What was the point of buying it early then??? Changing your clock harms literally NO ONE, it’s not even something that helps with respawns cause they’re supposed to be super fast anyway (when they WORK AT ALL). Honestly such a ripoff at this point, I’m so angry with them that they would charge us money and then say lol it’s bugged and you can’t play anyway. Needs fixed immediately. I didn’t pay money for early access to be locked out. Plus, people who don’t have schedules that work with real time play just can’t play it then? Is that what they want? So stupid, I’m so angry with the devs.

I completely agree with this. They need to get their s**t together and get it fixed. I haven’t been able to play in days now because of this damn bug and I’m pissed about it. I paid for the $70 version and this is the thanks I get? A broken game??? C’mon now, I’d animal crossing and other games can figure this out, surely these developers can too. I’m sure they did this on purpose as some sort of punishment for “time traveling”.

I did not pay this much money for a broken game.

I had this happen to me the other day. I have to wait til the 14th of February to even play. Sucks, but I suppose I brought it on myself for not doing my research on Time Travel. I’m so used to animal crossing. Hopefully they fix this bug.

I time traveled thinking it would fix my game from crashing .. unfortunately I messed the game up I’m so sad and I hope one day it’ll be fixed some how no rocks anymore no picking fruit or anything I’m beyond disappointed in myself I was thinking like animal crossing it would be ok.

Disney Dreamlight Valley- How To Fast Travel And Change Time

By Angelz in Nintendo Switch PC PS4 PS5 Xbox One 08/09/2022

How To Fast Travel And Skip Time In Disney Dreamlight Valley

Once you start earning Dreamlight points after completing quests and achievements; the first thing we do is unlock new areas and a new Realm from the Dream Castle. When the new area is unlocked, each area or location has a fast-travel location. If you are wondering what those fast travel locations are then you will be surprised.

The Wishing Well is the fast travel point that you might want to reconstruct quickly. It is required to let you fast travel from one area to another in order to quickly access storage at home when your inventory is full. Even the citizens of Dreamlight Valley, roam around and you can look and track them on the map. Instead of walking or running all the way from Plaza to Dazzle Beach to complete the quest, you can fast-travel and complete the request as fast as you can.

Change Time

There is a limit to how many times you can feed animals per day which is one. Even the shop gets refreshed daily and instead of waiting for the whole time, you can change the in-game time easily. To change time, all you need to do is change the clock of your Console, or PC.

DON’T do this. Problem is when you want to set your computer time back to normal it puts a future timer on everything you harvested on the latest date you had your computer set to. So therefore you cannot harvest any of it unless you continue to set your computer date ahead.

Yes, that’s the problem with manipulating the timer. It goes both ways good and bad. I was in hurry and tried to experiment things; but yeah we also do not recommend you to change the timer as it can simply bust the whole game momentum.

If you set your PC date/time to the past before you start a new game, in theory you could time travel forward until the current day/time?

Originally posted by Simiz : I think it should have a higher priority. Many people cannot play during the day due to work. When they play in the evening / night, they have some characters sleeping and maybe they can't go on with the quest. I would first solve the "harvest/spawn" for those who have already used TT, then I would put an option to change the day / night cycle (or fix the TT)

Disney Dreamlight Valley: Time Traveling to get Dream Shards

This guide should only be used in case of emergency!

Beware of Mother Gothels Quest after unlocking the Glade of Trust Biome!!

If you’ve already done this  and are now stuck here is what I suggest you do..

1. Feeding animals their FAVORITE foods has a chance to drop shards but it’s still unlikely and very rare. 2. Ten night vines are supposed to spawn per day, wait for those to appear and hope for the best but know they are extremely hard to come by and you could be stuck unable to play normally for like a week. 3. The devs have stated in known issues they plan to buff shards but we have no ETA of that happening so.. again you’d have to just wait. 4. Unlock new biome to have access to the new Night Vines in that area. 5 . If you’ve unlocked and cleared all you can for the time being, you can move your well teleport in your furniture tab as you would any other item around the world to place it on the side blocked off by bridges to try those night vines at a chance for more.  This is extremely helpful! 6. Risky and likely to mess up some things but if you’re desperate you can do as I did and time travel.

What to do before and during time travel

Doing so is at your own risk and is likely to occur in some bugs until they patch these issues. This should only be used in case of emergency if you’re stuck on the Cursed quest and can’t play the game anymore.

For switch and PC users you should be able to do this simply by changing your time to manual instead of automatic in your settings.

Important: Before you log out of your current save do the following!

– Remove ALL crops  absolutely nothing should be planted or they will get frozen in time and unable to be harvested.

– Do not harvest any respawning resources like fruits, bushes, mining rocks, or herbs in the ground.  Leave everything spawned in BEFORE going forward in time. All of these will get bugged if messed with in time travel. I’d recommend just leaving your game AFK for a bit so everything can respawn in before time traveling.

– Once you’ve logged out and made sure everything is spawned in, change your time, I’d recommend going day by day, first try the mornings or afternoons and if you can’t see any night vines then go to night time, and if still none then go to the next day and repeat the process.

– Night vines only spawn ten a day and are only a small chance to get the shards so this can take a while. Make sure you log out and restart your game every time you do a time change.

– It’s very important when you’re ahead in the future you continue to not touch anything.  And I mean anything.. don’t harvest or mine anything, you’re there only for the vines. If you mess this up and go back to normal time you’ll be missing them because they won’t respawn anymore.

– Repeat this process until you have enough shards to finish the quest. Once it’s finished you can save and log out and put your game back to normal time. If you followed my instructions, you should have minimal problems with your harvests and can play again as normal.

– If after returning to normal time you notice something is not spawning or is not able to be harvested and you’re in desperate need of this item, you can time travel ahead again using these same instructions to get that item. Make sure its the same time as your last time travel date or further.

Disney Dreamlight Valley – The Lucky Dragon update release date

Image of Kacee Fay

The valley is growing yet again with the arrival of two more familiar characters in Disney Dreamlight Valley . The Lucky Dragon update is nearly here, and if you want to experience the new content as soon as possible, you need to know when it’s releasing .

Updates always bring lots of exciting additions to the valley, and this is an especially promising one since it features a whole new Realm. There’s a lot to explore, so here’s when The Lucky Dragon update for  Disney  Dreamlight Valley  will be released .

The Lucky Dragon Disney Dreamlight Valley release date and time

Mulan and Mushu teasers in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

The Lucky Dragon update for Disney Dreamlight Valley launches on June 26 . It’s a free base game update, so it will be available for all players across all platforms on this day. Although an official launch time for this update hasn’t been shared so far, it’s likely the update will roll out around 8am CT .

All past updates have gone live at this time, so as long as Gameloft sticks to this pattern, The Lucky Dragon will too. The main features in this update are a Mulan Realm to explore, princess Mulan herself, and her sassy sidekick Mushu.

Along with the new characters and Realm , there will be lots of quests and items to earn. Every character in Disney Dreamlight Valley has a series of friendship quests you can work on to get to know them better and claim exclusive friendship items as you befriend them.

The Lucky Dragon update will also feature a new Star Path to work on. The theme of this special event isn’t known yet, but some small teasers have hinted at what it will include. These teasers include Mulan items, kites, and a squirrel inspired by Anxiety from Inside Out 2 .

Beyond this, it’s currently unknown what else the update might include. Since the last one introduced the Boutique with Boutique Challenges , Daisy Duck , and the A Day at Disney Star Path , this one likely won’t have much beyond the currently known features.

This update doesn’t include an update to the A Rift in Time expansion pass, although the final chapter for it is set to arrive sometime this summer. There’s also another free base game update in the works for the same time, so there’s still a lot to look forward to on the roadmap for future content.

Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to Get Spinel & Shiny Spinel

Disney Dreamlight Valley ’ s A Rift in Time expansion invites players to explore and uncover the secrets of an all-new region called Eternity Isle. Like the Valley, Eternity Isle is filled with new discoveries, including new wildlife, ingredients to gather and grow, quests to unlock, and more.

Players are introduced to a new mechanic called Timebending, a treasure-hunting task completed through the use of the Royal Hourglass, a royal tool obtained very early in the expansion’s story. Players will make regular use of this tool to retrieve new crafting materials and remove obstacles they face in their exploration of the Isle’s biomes.

Disney Dreamlight Valley: Royal Hourglass Tool Complete Guide

However, this doesn’t mean the player’s old trusty royal tools will get rusty from disuse. Eternity Isle features all new seeds for players to grow to put their farming tools to use, and there are all new objectives, including stone masses and large plants that players will deftly remove with the use of the right tool.

The Royal Pickaxe is indispensable in A Rift in Time as there is a new type of object to remove with it, Glass Stalagmites, and each of the new biomes features mineral veins hiding precious gemstones and useful minerals used for crafting recipes. Two new gemstones are Spinel and its fancier version, Shiny Spinel , both of which are obtained via Mining in Eternity Isle. Here’s where players can find these gemstones in Disney Dreamlight Valley: A Rift in Time .

Where to Find Spinel & Shiny Spinel

Spinel and Shiny Spinel are pink gemstones obtained from mineral veins on Eternity Isle. These gems drop from nodes found in Eternity Isle’s Wild Tangle biome , exclusively within The Promenade and The Grove areas.

Shiny Spinel are rarer than Spinel and fetch a higher price when sold at Goofy’s Stall. However, due to their rarity, most players prefer to hold onto these gemstones in case they are needed at a future date. It’s far easier and more sustainable to earn Star Coins by selling cooked meals .

Disney Dreamlight Valley: All Cooking Recipes

When players arrive at Eternity Isle, they can access only the Ancient’s Landing biome, and additional areas are unlocked through story completion and by spending Mist, A Rift in Time ’s version of the Dreamlight currency. Players will gain access to both the Wild Tangle and Glittering Dunes biomes after completing the quest “ The Sands in the Hourglass .”

Initially, the player can explore only The Grasslands area of the Wild Tangle, but additional areas can be unlocked by spending Mist.

  • The Promenade : Players can unlock this area by interacting with the barrier and paying 6,000 Mist .
  • The Grove : Players can unlock this area by interacting with the barrier and paying 4,000 Mist .

Once the player has access to these biomes, they will start to encounter mineral veins that have a chance of dropping Spinel and, occasionally, Shiny Spinel. Players should look out for nodes featuring pink gemstones protruding from the rock, as these will guarantee a gemstone drop.

Players should always bring along a Mining companion when focusing specifically on collecting minerals and gemstones to ensure they get extra drops. Using a Miracle Pickaxe Polish or its Even More Miraculous version will guarantee gemstone drops for a limited number of taps.

What are Spinel & Shiny Spinel Used For

At this time, only Spinel has a use in Disney Dreamlight Valley: A Rift in Time . Spinel is used to craft a small variety of decorative items, including the hilariously excessive and wonderful Heap of Riches. Spinel is also required to craft the Tropical Companion Home required to complete Rapunzel’s quest " The Housewarming ."
