The next stage of Disney Dreamlight Valley is almost here.
Posting on their blog today, Gameloft Montreal gave us one of our first glimpses into the 2023 roadmap for their Disney-themed life simulation adventure game.
The roadmap includes new characters like Mirabel from Encanto, Simba from The Lion King, and Olaf from Frozen, as well as the promise of new “realms” to explore, which are in-game worlds that can be visited as part of the story.
Is that a roadmap we see?
Get your first look at what (and who) to expect from our next few updates⤵️
Early 2023 is shaping up to be HUGE for Disney Dreamlight Valley and we can’t wait to share the magic with you!
Stay tuned for more details on Update 3 coming this February✨

Gameloft Montreal also confirmed one of the game’s most-requested features, multiplayer support, which is a major part of genre peers like Animal Crossing, though the roadmap did not offer any specific timing for when that would be added.
Dreamlight Valley, which has yet to receive its 1.0 release, previously added Lion King’s Scar, Stitch, Woody, and Buzzlightyear after its early-access debut last year. They were also quick to make quality of life improvements to the often-buggy cartoon world.
Although anyone can pay to play the game now, Dreamlight Valley is planned to receive its full, free-to-play launch later this year, though no specific timeframe for that has been announced, including in this 2023 roadmap.
Even in its early-access state, IGN reviewed Disney Dreamlight Valley last year and liked it quite a bit.
