There are already lots of characters in Disney Dreamlight Valley, even though the Disney-themed life sim is still in early access - and there's more to come!
Each character in Disney Dreamlight Valley, comes with their own quest, and can be assigned a 'hangout bonus' when you reach Friendship Level 2 with them, making them useful for farming resources beyond completing their personal quests.
We've got a list of all characters below, including all future characters in Disney Dreamlight Valley that are officially confirmed, and some speculation in the final section based off promotional material, in-game items, and leaks.

A lot of this information lines up with characters featured in clothing sets and furniture sets currently in Disney Dreamlight Valley, so we're inclined to belive most of it is true. However, remember that none of this information has been officially announced, so anything could change!
There was also no mention of characters from Coco, Cars, and Up in the game's PC files, which are also included in clothing and furniture sets.
On the flip side, promotional material shows Belle and Stitch, so we're almost certain they'll be added to Disney Dreamlight Valley, even if the above information doesn't turn out to be accurate.
