Vanellope von Schweetz has raced over from Wreck-It Ralph and into Disney Dreamlight Valley in the DreamSnaps update for the life-simulation game. That said, she needs a little bit of help from your character before she can move in and become our neighbour.

Vanellope’s quest - Faith, Trust, and Pixel Dust - actually acts as a brief tutorial in using the new DreamSnaps feature in Disney Dreamlight Valley. So, let's crack on with it. Here’s how to unlock Vanellope in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Where to find Vanellope in Disney Dreamlight Valley

To unlock Vanellope in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you first need to complete The Haunting of Dreamlight Valley quest assigned by Scrooge McDuck.

He’ll have witnessed some spooky goings-on in the Dream Castle, and wants someone else to investigate.

So, take yourself off to the Dream Castle and head on inside. Go upstairs to the very top of the castle, where you’ll find Vanellope!

Except, something unusual is happening to Vannellope; she is glitching all over the show, and doesn’t know how to stop it. So, it’s up to us to play the hero and help her out! To help her, she’ll ask that you take some photos of anything interesting in the Valley.

At this point, you’ll unlock the DreamSnaps challenge. This is a new, multiplayer feature for Disney Dreamlight Valley that will see players competing in photography challenges for rewards, including Moonstones!

This will complete The Haunting of Dreamlight Valley quest. Now, it’s time to take part in DreamSnaps and complete Vanellope’s quest to unlock her, Faith, Trust, and Pixel Dust.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Faith, Trust, and Pixel Dust - How to unlock Vanellope

To unlock Vanellope, you need to complete her photo-related quest - Faith, Trust, and Pixel Dust - and that means participating in DreamSnaps.

Go to your menu, open up the Events tab, and select ‘Current Challenge’ on DreamSnaps. Here, you can view the current challenge and its requirements. You’ll want to snap a photo in Dreamlight Valley with the requirements met, and then submit it!

For example, the challenge at the time of writing has the following requirements:

  • 5x Playful Furniture
  • 5x Familiar Furniture

Suggestions for the challenge also include ‘Modern’, and ‘Wreck It Ralph.’ You also cannot use Touch of Magic furniture in these photos.

You'll now want to arrange a set, either inside your home or somewhere in the valley, with furniture that meets the requirements. Take your photo using the Camera function, and then use the 'Check DreamSnaps' button to check that your photo meets the requirements. If it does, submit it!

Once you successfully submit a DreamSnap, return to Vanellope in the Dream Castle and talk to her. Once that’s done, you’ll finally get access to Vanellope’s house which needs placing somewhere in the valley using the Furniture menu!

Building Vannellope’s home will cost you 4,000 Star Coins. Once that’s dealt with, Vannellope will move in. It’s as easy as that to acquire this new neighbour!
