So you spent hours deciding on the perfect custom outfit on Disney Valley of Dreamlight and now you need to import your avatar to the full game. Fortunately, it’s pretty quick and easy. However, you must make sure you have your outfit exactly how you like it, because as the game itself warns you, “this will be your first set of clothes and can only be done once.” No pressure or anything.
As a note, don’t need to create a character in the avatar design tool. This only applies to those of us who downloaded the free character creation tool to start playing dress up early. If you achieved your look preemptively, here’s how you can make all that hard work translate into play.
How do you import your avatar into Disney Dreamlight Valley?
To import your avatar into the full version of Disney Dreamlight Valley, (opens in a new tab) you will need to copy your avatar code from the avatar design tool. You can find it directly in the main menu of the avatar designer. Press “show avatar code” to see the 10-character code. When you access Disney Dreamlight Valley for the first time, go to Settings and you will see the Import Avatar option. Paste or type your code and your avatar will be added instantly. It’s almost that easy, apart from a couple of caveats.
Here’s the fine print on importing characters:
- The code it only lasts 24 hoursso if you don’t use it in time, you need to generate a new one in the avatar design tool.
- The code will import the most recent avatar outfit and configuration you have equipped. Double check what you are wearing before generating that code.
- You can only import a character using an Avatar Code one time so let’s say triple check, just to be sure.
Don’t worry too much though. You can change your character’s appearance almost immediately after starting Dreamlight Valley, including details such as hairstyles, features, and skin color. You can also change what you’re wearing, but you’ll be restricted to what’s in your inventory, which won’t include all character creation options. For example, I had a couple of extra pairs of jeans, glasses, and other essentials in my inventory, but no items like jewelry.
As a tip, don’t be afraid to layer up. Even if you don’t want a coat, backpack, or Mickey Mouse ears with the outfit you’ve created, it wouldn’t hurt to put one on before starting the game. You can always take it off and save it for later. That’s what I call prepared.
