Mushrooms can be a nuisance in Disney Dreamlight Valley, especially if you’re trying to decorate your space or access new areas. But don’t worry, there are a few simple ways to remove them.
Before we dive into the removal methods, let’s understand the types of mushrooms you’ll encounter in the game:
Types of Mushrooms in Disney Dreamlight Valley
- Forage Mushrooms: Used in various recipes and are scattered throughout the valley.
- Mushroom Stalks: These can be found in the Peaceful Meadow biome and can obstruct your path. They can only be removed with the watering can upgrade.
- Mushroom Stumps: These block access to certain areas in the Glade of Trust and Frosted Heights biomes. You’ll need a shovel upgrade to clear them.
How to Upgrade the Watering Can
Removing Mushroom Stalks requires an upgraded watering can, and here’s how to obtain it:
- Reach Friendship Level 10 with Merlin: Interact with Merlin and build a strong friendship with him.
- Complete the ‘A Dark Experiment’ Quest: To complete this quest, gather the following materials:
- 20 Mushrooms: Found in the Glade of Trust biome, typically near waterways.
- 5 Emeralds: Mined from ore in the Forest of Valor and Glade of Trust biomes.
- 3 Purified Night Shards: Crafted at a station by combining 5 Night Shards with 1 Dream Shard. Night Shards are obtained from sparkling digging spots, and Dream Shards come from giving critters their favorite foods, clearing Night Thorns, and digging sparkling spots.
Once you’ve gathered these materials, speak to Merlin to acquire the permanent watering can upgrade. You can now remove Mushroom Stalks by watering them, although they may respawn later.
How to Remove Mushroom Stumps in the Glade of Trust
To clear Mushroom Stumps and access blocked areas in the Glade of Trust, follow these steps:
- Recruit Anna to the Valley: Bring Anna from the Frozen realm to Disney Dreamlight Valley.
- Reach Level 2 Friendship with Anna: Develop a strong bond with Anna.
- Complete the ‘An Icy Invitation’ Quest: This quest unlocks a shovel upgrade for you.
Crafting the Shovel Upgrade: To craft the shovel upgrade, gather these materials:
- 10 Softwood: Found near trees in various biomes.
- 4 Hardwood: Also found near trees in specific biomes.
- 6 Iron Ingots: Crafted at a station using 5 Iron Ore and 1 Coal Ore.
With the shovel upgrade, you can clear Mushroom Stumps and explore the previously inaccessible parts of the Glade of Trust and Frosted Heights biomes.
Mushroom Locations and Spawn Rates
If you’re on the hunt for mushrooms, here are some tips:
Removing Mushroom Stalks usually yields one batch of mushrooms per small stalk and two batches per large stalk.
You can also find mushrooms on the ground in the Glade of Trust biome, with up to ten spawn locations (depending on biome sections).
Mushrooms tend to respawn approximately every 45 minutes in the biome, so prioritize picking them during your gameplay sessions.
Remember that mushrooms cannot be purchased from Goofy’s Stalls, so make it a habit to gather them whenever you come across a mushroom crop, especially if you haven’t acquired the watering can upgrade from Merlin yet.
