In Disney Dreamlight Valley, Ariel is a tricky character to level up because she doesn’t leave the water, at least not until you complete Prince Eric’s quest, Part Of His World (covered in this guide).

However, you have to level up Ariel until you get to do Eric’s quest, so you need to find a way for the little mermaid to reach level 10 without relying on the XP that normal characters get from hanging out with you.

Therefore, checking the guide below is a good idea if you need pointers on how to level up Ariel, who you probably know from Disney’s animated film The Little Mermaid (1989).

How To Get Ariel To Friendship Level 10 In Disney Dreamlight Valley

First of all, you have to unlock the little mermaid, and you can do it easier by following our How To Unlock Ariel Guide here.

Then you can focus on leveling her up, but assigning her as a companion is impossible because she can’t leave the water.

The best increase in XP is gained by having your daily discussion with the little mermaid and gifting her the three favorite things of the day.

But again, you run into a problem because you can use these methods only once a day, and if you are in a hurry, you need an alternative.

So as you probably figured out, there is only one thing you can do: give the little mermaid a lot of gifts.

However, it’s essential to give her things that significantly boost XP because otherwise, you’re wasting time and resources.

Thus, I suggest you gift Ariel only Flowers and Gems; and hopefully, Prince Eric doesn’t get the wrong idea.

Gems provide the most XP, followed by Flowers, so start farming these two resources.

Gems may be a little harder to find, but you should have no problems with the Flowers.

Of course, the more Biomes you have unlocked, the faster you’ll get enough resources.

Now, get the little mermaid to level 10 to unlock more quests and rewards.
