Original story (published on October 31, 2022) follows:

Developed and published by Gameloft, Disney Dreamlight Valley is a popular life simulation game set in a magical valley featuring iconic Disney characters.

The game has gradually become popular and gained millions of players since its launch. It is available on multiple platforms including Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Windows, and macOS.

However, players have also been reporting various kinds of issues with the game such as harvest not working, photo fervor not recognizing Elephant Graveyard picture, and issues with Restoring the Sunstone quest to name a few.

Dreamlight Valley leg glitch

While the issues above affected a particular section of the game, the recently surfaced bug appears to have made the game completely inaccessible.

Disney Dreamlight Valley ‘not loading’ or ‘stuck at loading screen’

According to fresh reports doing rounds, Disney Dreamlight Valley players are complaining that the game is not loading or stuck at the loading screen (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).

Below are some reports for reference:


@DisneyDLV hey! i know you guys are aware of the loading screen issue across platforms right now, but i just want to check, if we can’t log in today will we still be able to give out candy tomorrow/following the fix? (Source)

Hi, I have already reinstalled the game however now it is taking a long time to load. I’ve been stuck on the loading screen for the past 40 mins however the bar slowly goes up a little bit (Source)

Players say that they can’t enter the game as they get stuck on the loading screen for hours. While many reports are from Nintendo Switch, there are also others that suggest other platforms are facing the same issue.

Luckily, the support team has acknowledged this issue and said that they are currently investigating it. However, they did not provide any ETA for the fix.


Regrettably, we haven’t come across any workaround that might help you resolve this glitch. And we hope that devs come up with a definitive fix soon since many players are unable to access the game.

Rest assured, we will keep an eye out for the latest developments regarding this problem and inform you as and when we come across anything noteworthy.

However, players on Switch may still encounter this issue as the fix is being deployed on a player-by-player basis and is expected to continue for a couple of days.

Rollout of the fix is being done player-by-player and will continue through the day and into tomorrow due to the incredible number of players on Switch. If you’re on Switch and have run into the issue, we encourage you to try booting up your game to see if you’ve received it yet (Source)
