Increasing your Friendship Levels is essential to progress in Disney Dreamlight Valley. As your friendship level rises, you will get access to additional quests, areas, cosmetics, and other features.

On the other hand, raising your friendship level might take some time if you only do missions and random activities.

Therefore, in the following guide, we will explain the tasks you can do to boost your friendship level quickly in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

The Friendship level is an essential aspect of the Disney Dreamlight Valley, also playing an important role in the early quest Friendship is Everything.

This mission requires you to raise your friendship level with three different friends to level five. It may seem like a big step if you’re just getting started, but it’s relatively simple with our help.

So, this guide will show you how to increase your friendship level in Disney Dreamlight Valley quickly.

Complete Friend’s Quests

Even if it seems obvious, it’s still worth mentioning: complete all of the friend’s quests whenever they become available.

In addition to unlocking new recipes or furniture, completing these quests rewards you with a significant friendship experience bonus.

Gift Him His Favorite Things Of The Day

Probably you have already noticed the present icon with a green bar under it and the line that says “I have something to give you!” when you talk to your friends around the village.

Also, the word “new” over the green banner under the present icon serves as a reminder that the favorite things of the day have changed after a 24h period.

Gift Him His Favorite Things Of The Day

Every friend in the village has three preferred gifts they would love to receive each day, which are displayed in the lower right corner of the screen after you pick the “I have something to give you!” line.

Gifting them one of the favorite things of the day will grant you a considerable friendship boost of experience, usually filling the friendship meter by half in the first five levels.

It appears that at least one of the three is always something simple that you can get early on, like a fish, flower, or an easy meal.

The other two are less common items only available in certain areas, such as Bell Pepper or Iron Ingot, so don’t get your hopes too high to find them for a while.

Remember that the bonus is only available the first time you offer the preferred gift on a given day. If you offer it again, it will count as a regular present.

Discuss Daily With Your Friend

At the start of each new day, you can talk with your friends and have daily discussions about a specific topic or ask them how they feel.

At the end of the conversation, you will receive a high amount of Friendship XP, similar to the one you receive when you gift a preferred gift.

Also, try to complete the daily discussion when the Dreamlight Duty that says, “Have a daily discussion” becomes available to avoid locking yourself out with 1 of the 6 Dreamlight Duties.

Hang Out With Your Friend

The most efficient way to gain Friendship XP fast and reach the max level (10) is to hang out with your friends and complete tasks, but there is a catch.

After you reach level 2 with any of your friends, you will have to pick a role for your companion that can’t be changed later on, so choose wisely.

In my case, I picked the Fishing role for Goofy because he lives right next to the ponds, and he also fixed my fishing rod earlier (covered in-depth here).

Once you pick the role, talk to him again and choose the “Let’s hang out!” line to make him your companion.

If you complete any task while hanging out with your companion, you will receive a small amount of Friendship XP. So, it’s a simple way to help level up while completing your Dreamlight Duties.

For higher amounts of Friendship experience, focus on the activity in which your selected companion has specialized, like gardening, fishing, mining, foraging, or digging.

Also, by doing the same activity as the companion, you will have a chance to receive additional items.

Hang Out With Your Friend

For example, if you pick the Mining role for your companion, each time you mine together the rock spots, there is a chance for him to find an additional mineral.

Even if you receive small amounts of Friendship XP, always hang out with a companion while you complete tasks around the village in Disney Dreamlight Valley until you reach the max level (10) for each friend.

And that’s how you raise fast your Friendship level in the video game developed by Gameloft. If you have any questions or suggestions, leave them in the comments section below.
