Are the Disney Dreamlight Valley updates free?

As you may have heard, Disney Dreamlight Valley’s free to play plans are no longer on the cards, but Gameloft has confirmed that the base game will continue to get free updates including new characters, realms, and more.

However, you do have to pay for the upcoming Disney Dreamlight Valley: A Rift in Time expansion. The expansion takes you to a whole new world about the same size as the original valley, and unlocks a bunch of new characters including EVE, Rapunzel, and Gaston. New tools and mechanics are also locked behind this expansion, including a bunch of handy machines that can automate systems such as sprinklers to water your crops and a tool that allows you to cook multiple meals at once.

Luckily, if you want to try out a Rift in Time for yourself but don’t want to splash that cash, you can play the Disney Dreamlight Valley: Arcade Edition for free if you have an Apple Arcade subscription. The Arcade Edition comes complete with the new expansion, as well as all past and future content updates – the only things you miss out on are the Star Paths and the premium shop.
