Cooking in Disney Dreamlight Valley can be unlocked when you enter the home of Mickey Mouse at the start of the game. The character will tell you how his friend, Remy, used to create meals for the realm until The Forgetting took over their universe. At this point, you’ll be able to use his oven in his house and make some dishes with any ingredients you have on hand.

Players can throw in a mixture of items they want to try out in the pot and create meals they can use to replenish their stamina or give away as a gift to Disney characters. In addition, you can look at the Recipes tab for guidance and obtain more of these items as you progress further into the game, especially after you’ve acquired Remy from his cooking realm.

You’ll also get your own stove at your house when you complete enough quests for Mickey Mouse, where you must grow crops and cook dishes for your new friend.

If you want a variety of tasty dishes, you can acquire ingredients by crafting a gardening area, which can be placed almost anywhere on the map. You can obtain different seeds by eliminating Night Thorns, digging with your shovel in certain places on the map, and purchasing them at Goofy’s Stall. Furthermore, sometimes the Disney characters will give you seeds when you boost their friendship levels, or you can harvest wild crops found throughout Dreamlight Valley.

Once you get a few seeds, you can go to an empty spot and use your shovel to cultivate the soil for your crops. Moreover, you can hold down the designated button to grow/harvest multiple resources at a faster rate. Then, you can decide whether you want to sell these items to Goofy for profit or cook a few meals.

Those looking for a particular ingredient can look in the Ingredients Collection to locate specific resources.
