Disney Dreamlight Valley has become a popular online game, allowing players to interact with their favorite Disney characters in a virtual world.

One of the most exciting features of the game is the ability to hang out with the characters such as Prince Eric.


However, the excitement is at a standstill as the feature for hanging out with Eric is currently broken.

Disney Dreamlight Valley ‘hang out with Eric’ bugged for some

Recently, players have reported (1,2,3,4,5) a bug in the game where Eric refuses to hang out when invited, which is a significant issue that is hindering players’ ability to advance in the game.

The problem has become prevalent among players, and numerous reports have been made on social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit.

Players who have reported this issue have stated that Eric doesn’t follow them when they invite him to hang out, making it difficult to increase their friendship levels with him.
