Disney Dreamlight Valley critters' favourite foods, schedules, and how to feed animals

Snow White never had to deal with this.

Animals in Disney Dreamlight Valley offer rewards for feeding them their favourite foods, and can even be recruited as a critter companion to follow you around the valley.

There have been some quality of life updates to make feeding animals easier in Disney Dreamlight Valley, but there's still a lot of information to take in regarding the times they appear as part of their set schedules, and what food they like.

To help you clear Dreamlight Duties, recruit critter companions, and earn rewards, we've detailed how to feed animals in Disney Dreamlight Valley, and all the favourite foods and schedules for every critter, which include squirrels, rabbits, turtles, raccoons, crocodiles, sunbirds, foxes, and ravens.

For more help in the valley, we've got pages on recipes, redemption codes, and a list of current and future characters, including how to get Stitch.

How to feed animals in Disney Dreamlight Valley

If you ever get a quest or Dreamlight Duty to feed an animal, it can be a little confusing to know what to do at first, as each animal type has different foods they prefer, and differing ways to approach them.

There are eight animal (critter) types currently in Disney Dreamlight Valley:

  • Squirrels
  • Rabbits
  • Turtles
  • Raccoons
  • Crocodiles
  • Sunbirds
  • Foxes
  • Ravens

There could possibly be more animals added to the game in future updates, as ravens were patched in after the game's initial early access release.

For now, if you're ever asked to feed an animal, you should approach one of the eight critter types listed above, who will be running about the different biomes in the valley.

To actually feed one of the animals in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you should carefully approach an animal and then press the button prompt that appears below it when you're close enough. This will open your inventory, and you can then select what food you wish to give it.

You can now feed critters multiple times a day, but this seems to more of a failsafe for if you accidentally feed an animal a food that they don't like, rather than an easy way to farm rewards.

Some animals are also more skittish than others. Squirrels are the easiest to approach, while a critter like a crocodile will almost always run away if you start running towards it.

You can get one of the following rewards for feeding animals in Disney Dreamlight Valley:

  • Crystals
  • Dream Shards
  • Memory Pieces
  • Motifs
  • Night Shards
  • Seeds

With big thanks to LadyAerlynn on the DreamlightValley subreddit for filling in some the blanks with critter schedules and foods, we've got all the details you need to know about every critter type and colour below...
