The characters in Disney Dreamlight Valley sure do love their treasure hunts, with multiple of its unlockable Friendship quests sending the player on an excursion around the Valley to dig up buried secrets. As the player gets to better know its residents, they’ll find themselves relying on their Royal Shovel quite a bit to locate hidden and buried items for Donald Duck, Buzz Lightyear, and even one the Valley’s newest residents, Belle.
It should come as no surprise that of all the Village’s residents, Scrooge McDuck is especially interested in getting his hands on some buried treasure to add to his already massive hoard. Here’s how players can unlock the quest “The Treasure Hunt” and continue their mission to uncover a mysterious treasure they believe is buried somewhere in Dreamlight Valley.
The quest “The Treasure Hunt” is unlocked upon reaching Friendship Level 8 with Scrooge McDuck and having finished his previous quest, "What's Bad for the Business," which is unlocked at Friendship Level 6. This quest follows up on the mystery of the strange gold coin received from the sea witch Ursula in the previous quest.
To start the quest "The Treasure Hunt" in Disney Dreamlight Valley, the player should head to Scrooge McDuck who, as always, can be found in his store. After speaking with him, he shares his theory that the golden coin he received from Ursula is proof there is treasure buried somewhere in the Village.
He gives the player the coin for further investigation. The player should use the coin from their inventory, causing it to transform into a Memory Shard. Using the Memory Shard from their inventory unlocks a Memory featuring three photos of different biomes in Dreamlight Valley, indicating where the player should visit to locate the clues.
The player should head to each of these locations to locate the clues:
- Glade of Trust - Locate and dig at the sparkling dig site on the eastern side of the large lake situated at the top of the biome.
- Merlin’s House - Inside Merlin's House, collect the note from the floor in front of his desk.
- Dazzle Beach - Locate and dig at the sparkling dig site on the eastern side of the beach, in front of the ramp leading into the Forest of Valor.
Once the player has retrieved each of the three clues, they should return to Scrooge McDuck and hand over the items. He tells the player he will investigate further to determine their next steps to locating this mysterious hidden treasure. This completes the quest “The Treasure Hunt” in Disney Dreamlight Valley, with the next quest, “The Treasure Hunt Part 2” unlocking at Friendship Level 8 with Scrooge McDuck.
Disney Dreamlight Valley is available for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
