Time

From Dreamlight Valley Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Time in Dreamlight Valley is synced with the player's real world local time (after completing a few initial quests).

The game world will mirror the time conditions in the player's world so during the day the sun will be out, and in the evening it will be darker.[1] Some characters are not available to engage at certain times, as they may be sleeping.

Character Schedules

Schedule times have been community sourced. They may not be accurate and are subject to change.[2]

Characters follow regular schedules each day. Most will spend time each day eating at Chez Remy (where they can be served Meals in exchange for Star Coins and Friendship), and sleeping (during which time they'll be unavailable). Many Villagers also visit Scrooge's Store daily.

Between the hours 12 pm (noon) until 5 pm no character will sleep and they can all be found and spoken to.

Villagers that run Stalls or other stations will always appear for user interactions, regardless of that Character's current schedule. For Prince Eric's Blueprint Table and the cooking station inside Chez Remy, Prince Eric and Remy will always disappear immediately after the interaction with the station is completed. For Goofy's Stalls, Kristoff's Stall, Moana's Boat, and Scrooge McDuck construction signs, if the Character is not currently scheduled to be elsewhere, they will often remain next to the station and then resume wandering the Valley. Otherwise, they will disappear and return to their currently scheduled location.
