Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to Move Faster

Exploration is a big part of Disney Dreamlight Valley and moving faster will make things significantly easier.

While you can unlock wells in each biome and teleport around, they get fairly expensive in the later biomes. Thus, unless you have extra coins to spare for wells, moving faster is going to be a lifesaver.

For instance, unlocking the well in the Frosted Heights biome costs 10.000 coins. And the same goes for the well in the Forgotten Lands biome.

In addition, moving faster is extremely easy to achieve and costs almost nothing.

In this guide, I’ll explain how to move faster in Disney Dreamlight Valley to help players explore efficiently.

How to Move Faster in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Moving faster in Disney Dreamlight Valley is achieved by eating any cooked meal. As long as your stamina bar goes over 100% and becomes yellow, you will get a movement speed bonus.

Keep in mind that you can only get that bonus through cooked foods. Eating fruits or vegetables won’t make your stamina bar go over 100%.

Also, the movement speed bonus has a set value. You’ll get the same buff whether your bar is almost empty or full.

Considering how easy it is to get the movement speed bonus, and combined with how expensive unlocking wells becomes in late-game biomes, keeping this buff active will be extremely helpful.

Do Better Foods Give Extra Movement Speed?

If you’re wondering whether the movement speed bonus is different when eating better foods, the short answer is no.

Eating a 5-star meal will give you the same bonus as eating a 1-star meal. The only difference will be that the 5-star meal will fill your stamina bar fully, while the 1-star meal only by a small percentage.

However, in both cases, as long as the bar is golden, regardless of which meal you ate, you will have the same movement speed bonus.

How Long Does the Extra Movement Speed Last?

As for how long the extra movement speed buff lasts, the answer is it depends. It doesn’t expire based on time but instead depends on activities done.

If you spend enough stamina and your bar goes back to the normal, non-golden tier, then you lose the movement speed buff.

In that case, eat another meal and you’ll have the buff back.

In short, you can have 100% uptime on the movement speed buff, as long as you keep your stamina bar (at least partially) golden.


And that’s all. Moving faster in Disney Dreamlight Valley requires eating any cooked meal and keeping your stamina bar golden, above the normal 100%.

This buff will be helpful when mining, roaming around the map, or doing any quests that involve walking.
