Disney Dreamlight Valley fast travel using Wishing Wells is great for getting around the world, but you need to properly unlock it by completing the ‘Friendship Is Everything’ quest. Methods of getting around Disney Dreamlight Valley efficiently are quite limited at first, particularly seeing as you can’t sprint and you can only fast travel to one spot. In your first few hours, you will be able to quickly teleport between Wishing Wells just using the map and can warp to Realms using the Dream Castle, however. Here’s what you need to know about unlocking and using these fast travel methods in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

To fast travel using a Disney Dreamlight Valley Wishing Well, you must make sure it is active first. Active wells are marked on the map with a purple icon and look clean, uncorrupted by dark magic, and are not covered by wooden boards. If you have any active wells, you can fast travel to one by clicking the relevant icon on the map. Clicking the icon will immediately teleport you to your chosen well. Aside from only being able to travel to active wells, there are no other restrictions – you can warp to a well from anywhere and at any time, although certain quests may temporarily block fast travelling.

Unfortunately, you won’t get proper access to the Wishing Well fast travel option until you visit a Realm and get a quest from Merlin called ‘Friendship Is Everything’. Here’s what you must do to complete this quest and unlock Wishing Well fast travel:

  • Reach Friendship Level 5 with three different Disney villagers.
  • Speak to Merlin again.
  • Collect the Orb of Friendship from the thorns and place it into the nearby Pillar.
  • Speak to Merlin at the Peaceful Meadow Wishing Well.

Placing the Orb of Friendship into the Pillar cleanses the area of any dark magic and makes the well safe, but it’s badly damaged. Merlin will also magic up some repairs, therefore allowing you to use the well for fast travel. Each of the eight areas in Dreamlight Valley has its own well, and you’ll need to go through roughly the same procedure laid out above: get the area’s relevant orb and place it in the pillar to cleanse the well. However, Scrooge McDuck and his money-making antics means you’ll have to pay a Disney Dreamlight Valley Star Coins fee to repair a well to use it for fast travel from now – where’s Merlin’s magic when you need it?!

How to use the Dream Castle for Disney Dreamlight Valley fast travel

The second fast travel method is by using the Dream Castle. Much like with the Wishing Wells, you can click on the Dream Castle icon on the map, which is just above the main plaza area, except you’ll be able to choose from a list of places to teleport to. This includes all the Wishing Wells you’ve restored, and all the Disney Realms that you’ve unlocked access to within the Dream Castle. Do note that you can’t travel from Realm to Realm, so you must return to main Dreamlight Valley world and use the Dream Castle again to travel elsewhere.

Access to the Dream Castle is granted quite early on as part of the quest called ‘The Dream Castle’, which is around the time you'll also be getting the Disney Dreamlight Valley Royal Tools. Here’s what you need to do:
