Stitch is one of the more difficult villagers to find in Disney Dreamlight Valley, as he's not part of a Realm, or unlocked with a particular biome.
Instead, you'll have to help Donald Duck by finding the missing socks from the valley. This is an ongoing quest, however, so you'll have to wait a while to add Stitch to your village.
To help you unlock Stitch as soon as you can, we've detailed how to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley below, and where to find the socks.
If you're looking for his quest instead, we've got a walkthrough for Stitch's quest, including hidden requirements and the Skull Rock location.

How to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Thanks to u/hga90 on the DisneyDreamlights subreddit for first discovering this, we now know for ourselves how long it takes to get everybody's favourite whirlwind of mischief.
To get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley you have to:
- Find the slimy stocking sock on Dazzle Beach, talk to Donald Duck, wait five days.
- Find the chewed-up sock in the Peaceful Meadow, talk to Goofy and Donald, wait five days.
- Find the last knitted orange sock in the Forest of Valor, talk to Merlin and Donald.
- Place the homing beacon on Skull Island
- Go find Stitch at his ship!
We've got more details on every step on how to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley below.
Where to find first sock to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley
To start the quest to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you need to find the slimy stocking on Dazzle Beach. The slimy stocking seems to spawn most often on the small island to the south of the eastern side of the beach, but we know it can spawn behind the Pillar of Power as well.
There might be other locations the stocking appears, so search all around Dazzle Beach if you can't find it on the island, or behind the Pillar of Power.
Also, keep in mind that you might need to have Donald unlocked first before this stocking will spawn on Dazzle Beach. You can get Donald Duck by unlocking the Forest of Valor, then completing the 'A House Fit For A Duck' quest after he's rescued.
The stocking may appear if you haven't unlocked him, but you won't be able to progress any further until you get Donald Duck, as you need to speak with him during the next part of the quest to get Stitch.
If the stocking still isn't appearing for you on Dazzle Beach, do some of Donald's personal quests, or unlock the Toy Story Realm and complete the 'A Secret Mission in Uncharted Space' quest to invite Buzz from Toy Story to your village.
Once you pick up the slimy stocking, take it to Donald Duck to continue your search for Stitch! Once you help Donald, however, you'll have to wait five days, then the chewed-up sock will appear in another biome.

Where to find second sock to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Five days after completing the 'Mystery of the Stolen Socks' quest for Donald Duck, another gross piece of laundry will appear in your game.
To continue your quest to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you need to go to Peaceful Meadow to find the chewed-up sock. Remember, this will only appear five days after completing the first quest associated with finding the socks.
The chewed-up sock appeared for us to the right of the eastern path to Dazzle Beach, near the pillar. However, it can appear anywhere in the Peaceful Meadow, so keep a lookout for sparkles on the floor.
Once you've found the chewed-up sock, take it to Goofy and give it to him. Then go to his house and clean up the rubbish, where you'll find the blue fur. Take the blue fur to Donald Duck to complete the second part of this quest to unlock Stitch.
After speaking with Donald, you then have to wait another five days for the next sock to appear.
Where to find third sock to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Another five days after finding the second sock and cleaning Goofy's house, the last sock will spawn in your game.
To finish up your quest to get Stitch in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you need to go to the Forest of Valor to find the knitted orange sock. Remember, this will only appear five days after finding the second sock in Peaceful Meadows.
The third sock appeared for us in the south of the forest, overlooking the Plaza biome. However, it can spawn in multiple places in the forest, so have a look around for sparkles on the floor if you don't find it where we did!
You'll be asked to talk to Mickey, Kristoff and Merlin next, but you only need to talk to Merlin to progress with the quest, as it's his sock. Clean up Merlin's house like you did for Donald and Goofy, and then return to Donald Duck when you find the Mysterious Claw in the last pile of trash in Merlin's house.
We're nearly there! All you have to do to get Stitch into your valley now is plant the homing beacon on Skull Rock. This is the small island just off the eastern side of Dazzle Beach, where we found the first sock.
Go into your inventory and plant the beacon like a piece of furniture, then when you exit the menu, Stitch will come crashing down in his ship!
Talk to Stitch, place his house somewhere in your Valley, then pay Scrooge McDuck 10,000 Star Coins to build it. Stitch will now be a regular member of your village, but you need to activate some hidden requirements to progress with his personal quest after reaching Friendship Level 2. The first of which is finding a sparking Donald Duck picture by the eastern steps of Dazzle Beach.
