How to start Dreamlight Parks Fest in Disney Dreamlight Valley

You can start the Dreamlight Parks Fest event by talking to Scrooge McDuck for the Dreamlight Parks Fest quest. Once you finish talking with him, the entire event becomes available for you to work on.

How long is Dreamlight Parks Fest in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

The Dreamlight Parks Fest event is available from May 15 to June 5. After the event ends, it’s likely we won’t see it again until 2025, although it’s not officially confirmed to be an annual event so far. All other events featured in Disney Dreamlight Valley occur on an annual basis, though, so there’s a decent chance this one will too.

Working on the various tasks included in this event helps you quickly navigate through many of the A Day At Disney Star Path duties too, so make sure you’re claiming Mickey Mouse Tokens as you earn them. It’s also a good idea to check the Premium Shop if you want more special Disney Parks assets to go with the Dreamlight Parks Fest ones.
