Disney Dreamlight Valley: How To Get Dream Shards

You're going to need a lot of these.


As you play Disney Dreamlight Valley, you'll quickly note that Dream Shards are quite the commodity. These special little shards are used for a variety of purposes, including as part of quests, to craft certain items, and to combine with Night Shards to make Purified Night Shards. Here's how to get more Dream Shards.

Where to get Dream Shards in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Dream Shards can be obtained in multiple different ways, so you're guaranteed to come across some naturally as you play. But here are the main ways to get them.


You can find quite a lot of Dream Shards by seeking out cracked pieces of ground throughout your valley and digging at those spots. You'll also be able to stock up on Night Shards this way, making it the most efficient method of gaining a good amount of both types quickly.

Digging up cracked spots in the soil will frequently reward you with Dream Shards.

Feeding Critters

Each time you feed a critter, you run a pretty good chance of getting a Dream Shard to drop. To improve your chances even further, feed them their favorite food. This helps you work towards potentially earning them as a companion, too!

Removing Night Thorns

Every time you remove a Night Thorn in your valley, there's a decent chance of having a Dream Shard pop out. You'll have plenty of these to clear out at the beginning of the game, but afterward, ten of them will spawn in a random biome each day. Clear these out daily to keep your valley looking nice and earn some Dream Shards in the process.
