Over time, Disney Dreamlight Valley has delivered on its promise of populating the game with our favorite Disney characters and locations. While I could whine about how we haven’t visited the Monsters Inc. biome yet, I’d much rather go over the currently featured franchises in the game.
DDV burdens a heavy load on its shoulders. After all, housing all the content created by a company which creation that dates back to 1923 isn’t easy at all. Through updates and now through an upcoming paid expansion, they have managed to include a fair share of Disney franchises in the Valley. If you’re curious about who you’ll get to meet in this game, here’s a brief rundown of all Disney characters and locations in DDV.

All Disney Franchises Coming to Disney Dreamlight Valley
Disney Dreamlight Valley’s content roadmap for 2024 outlines the Disney franchises that will be added or expanded upon in the content that is to come:
- On December, Jack Skellington will join DDV, which means that The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Disney franchise coming to DDV.
- The Princess and the Frog is one of the Disney franchises that will be coming in 2024 to Disney Dreamlight Valley in the form of free content (that means it’s not part of the expansion pass, but you still need the base game)
- Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc. will be part of Disney Dreamlight Valley as of early 2024.
- Though not confirmed, Mulan could be the franchise behind Gameloft’s “You don’t find a Realm like this every Dynasty…” hint in the 2024 roadmap.
- The last Disney franchise to join the DDV train will be Aladdin. Jafar is the main villain behind A Rift in Time, so you can expect to see a lot of him.
