How to upgrade your house in Disney Dreamlight Valley

It’s a fixer-upper that needs a lot of TLC, to say the least.

In Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll start out with a quaint, run-down shack for a home. However, as you go about cleaning up the Plaza and getting to know the inhabitants - namely, Disney characters - you’ll find that you can upgrade your house.

Catch the gameplay overview trailer for Disney Dreamlight Valley here, and see what else there is to look forward to.

That said, you’ll have to put a significant amount of work in around Dreamlight Valley before Scrooge McDuck offers to help fix your place up. Yet, it’s worth it, as not only will your Dreamlight Valley home look better and be bigger, it’ll also store more!

Without further ado, here’s how to upgrade your house in Dreamlight Valley.

It’s not as straight-forward or as immediate as you’d have hoped, but to unlock house upgrades in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll need to be on Scrooge McDuck’s good side. That said, start off by building his shop beside your home for 1,000 coins.

As you make progress, continue to check in with Scrooge McDuck and complete any quests that he assigns to you. These include buying something from his shop, wearing some of Scrooge McDuck’s finest garments in an attempt to advertise the store, and will also see you finally unlock a Crafting Station.

Sooner or later, you’ll be tasked with the Dreamlight Valley Economy 101 quest, where you’ll need to sell off seven gems at Goofy’s stall.

Once this is complete, return to Scrooge McDuck, and he’ll give you a run down regarding house upgrades. Now, head inside your home and look to the left of the entrance. Here, there’ll now be a menu which can be accessed to upgrade the interior of your house by adding new rooms and so forth.

Exterior upgrades are very pricey... but they do add further home storage.

The first upgrade is primarily a cosmetic one, but they do also provide some additional storage inside your home! Following this, further exterior upgrades will build more floors in your house.
