How to upgrade your house and get more storage in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Learning how to improve your home at Disney Dreamlight Valley is one of the first tasks we recommend you do.

Not only does it give your run-down abode a much-needed facelift, it’s also a way to gain more storage space, which will become more useful the more items you collect.

It will take you about an hour of gameplay in Disney Dreamlight Valley to unlock your first house expansion, and more will require additional money.

How to Upgrade Your House in Disney Dreamlight Valley

To upgrade your house in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you must progress through Scrooge’s quest line.

Scrooge is one of the first characters you’ll encounter, located just south of the Plaza, and he’ll introduce you to the ability to sell items through Goofy. Later on, he will also help you learn how to craft items, and eventually he will help you expand your house.

There are three quests in total to complete before upgrading your house. These are:

  • Make pennies out of things
  • Scrooge McDuck’s Grand Reopening
  • Valley Economy Dreamlight 101

The screens above will show you the steps required for each mission. Most are easy: the only ones we had trouble with were collecting Dandelion and Purple Rising Penstemon (we found both in the Meadow; use your collections to see what they look like) and the gems, which require you to use your pickaxe to mine the coal deposits. against the cliff walls to have little chance of one falling.

Finding gems is also a good way to earn money, useful for upcoming house improvements…

How to Buy More Home Storage at Disney Dreamlight Valley

Once you’ve completed Dreamlight Valley Economy 101, Scrooge will explain that he’s added an elevator to his house to access room upgrades.

You can find this elevator to the side, and interacting with it will allow you to increase the size of your rooms and add more floors.

For storage, you’ll want to interact with the roadwork sign outside. It’s here that you can upgrade your house overall: the first stage of upgrading costs 2,000 coins to give the house a much-needed coat of paint, then the second stage costs 20,000 coins for future upgrades, and so on. Each will also give you an additional line of storage.

However, if this is too much work to get started, there are some additional, faster ways to get storage upgrades…

The Disney Dreamlight Valley September Update is here! You can now obtain Beauty and the Beast by completing the quests Into the West Wing and A Prince in Disguise. The Fairy Godmother is still in the valley, so you can continue the story through the Forgotten Memories quest. Now you can also have multiplayer houses and customize furniture. If you’re still catching up on the story, be sure to complete The Great Blizzard quest to unlock Olaf, as well as take Simba and Nala to the valley.

Other ways to get storage at Disney Dreamlight Valley

Whether you followed the steps above or simply need more storage, there are a few additional methods you can take advantage of:

  • Update your personal inventory. This is probably the most useful in the long run: it will allow you to transport more items from your adventures to your home storage. You can do this within the inventory menu by selecting the option at the bottom and then expanding your backpack.

  • Crafting a chest. As you progress through Scrooge’s quest line, you will unlock the ability to craft items. Once you do, you will be able to create a chest with 25 softwoods and 25 stones, two common resources that you will find on the ground and breaking rocks with your pickaxe respectively. By using this you will get two extra lines of storage.

  • Use the floor in your house. If you don’t mind the clutter, you can simply throw any item on the floor of your house, a staple of Animal Crossing. The larger your home, the more you can store on the floor – a double benefit of a home improvement!
