On July 19th at 1 PM UTC/9 AM ET, Disney Dreamlight Valley is set to introduce a bunch of updates, promising new quests, a multiplayer feature called DreamSnaps, and an array of improvements. These updates not only add new content but also enhance the gaming experience by fixing bugs and improving the overall quality of life in the Valley.

Highlighting the updates, DreamSnaps allows players to participate in weekly photo challenges, sparking community engagement and creativity. Participants can earn a range of prizes, including Moonstones, furniture, and clothing items. It should be noted, however, that Touch of Magic Clothing and Furniture are incompatible with DreamSnaps and cannot be included in submissions.

Vanellope, the lovable character from Wreck-It Ralph, will soon grace the Valley, offering new Friendship Quests and the opportunity to earn new items. To make it easier to keep up with Vanellope, the energy drain during hovering has been slashed by approximately 80%.

Switch-specific performance improvements have also been a priority. To reduce crash rates, the video capture feature of the Nintendo Switch has been deactivated. Despite this, video capture via capture card and screenshot capture will continue to function as normal. General stability on Nintendo Switch has also been improved, with ongoing work towards further optimization.

Scrooge McDuck’s Store inventory has been slightly adjusted to reduce the chance of duplicate items appearing. This is an early step as the team further investigates possible future changes.

The forthcoming update also addresses a variety of bugs. Fixes include resolving hanging issues at the loading screen for Xbox users, correcting mismatched visuals and names in Scrooge McDuck’s Store, and addressing problems that prevent progression or completion in multiple quests.

Other notable fixes include the resolution of a soft lock encountered by Switch players when exiting Edit Mode after long Valley editing sessions, and the correction of a bug that transferred the design print of certain t-shirts to newly-equipped ones on PlayStation 4.

In addition, there were patches for other issues such as problems in tracking quests from the Menu, issues with changing the Avatar’s pose in Photo Mode, and an incorrect on-screen input displayed during the fishing minigame.

Here’s the full list of details from the patch:
