There are four different types of chests in Disney Dreamlight Valley to find and open. You can distinguish them from their colors: blue, yellow, green, and red.

Naturally, you might be wondering how the colored chests differ from each other. Since each chest gives you various rewards such as Star Coins, outfits, and such, you need to know which chest will give you exactly what in the game.

That way, if you are looking for something particular, you can keep a sharp eye out for a specific colored chest.

The following guide will explain all of the chests in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Chest types in Dreamlight Valley

There are four types of chests that you will come across in the game.

Blue Chest

Roaming around the valley, you might have seen the blue chest. Know that you must be connected to the internet to open this one as it’s tied to an in-game event.


The blue chest rewards you with currency, which you can utilize to win prizes in the game. Do keep a check on the ongoing event, as you will receive prizes according to it.

Yellow Chest

Who doesn’t love money? Get your hands on the yellow chest to get money to spend on your luxuries in Disney Dreamland Valley. You can find the yellow chests hidden in the mushrooms, tree stumps, or maybe on some island.

Green & Red Chests

The green and red chests are easy to find while roaming the island. You can receive these chests as daily rewards, by opening them you can get money or clothes sometimes.

As you walk around the valley, keep a close eye on these yellow/red boxes. It’s common to miss them as you go by the Dream Castle, so remain vigilant. You can also find these chests hidden in the houses of your game friends, so look for them next time you visit your friends.

How to craft chests for extra storage

To craft chests to get more storage, you must first place a crafting station in your house. The crafting station can be obtained by Scrooge McDuck. Simply complete his quest and receive the crafting station as a reward.

Once you’ve been handed the crafting station, place it anywhere in the house in places that are easily accessible.

Next up is crafting chests which require 25x Softwood and 25x Stones. Stones can easily be found by breaking the large stone in the area, while Softwood is acquired near the Plaza under the trees.

Once all items are collected, head back to your house, place the items on the crafting station, and craft more chests.

How to upgrade chests in Dreamlight Valley

As you start your journey in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll be provided with a house by Merlin at the beginning of the game.

However, the chest will only have 8 slots which are relatively fewer than you expected and requires an upgrade to maximize its capacity.

To upgrade the chest, you can’t directly increase its capacity as it requires you to upgrade your entire house which will allow you to increase the current storage capacity of your chest.

How does storage work in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Getting used to managing your inventory can be a bit challenging at first but as you start stacking items, you’ll become familiar with the concept.

Primarily, you’ll have two types of storage. The first one is character storage which is the number of items you can carry at a time.

You can gather up items for your backpack which can reach 99 pieces. To increase your character’s storage, spend 5000 star coins to upgrade its overall capacity, giving you enough room to fit double the pieces of items.

The second type of storage is your house and it requires an entire structural upgrade for it to increase in capacity.

Methods to increase storage inside your house

Method 1: Leave items on the floor

Additionally, you can drop the items in a safe spot from where you can collect them sometime later.  Since the items you collect can’t re-spawn, this is a simple yet cost-saving method to increase storage capacity in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Method 2: Upgrade your House

As mentioned before, your house is the second type of storage you have. Increasing the number of slots in your chest depends upon how much coins you spend on your house upgrades.

There are three upgrades for your house that cost 2000, 20000, and 75000 Star Coins each. Choose yours and get the number of slots for your chest accordingly.

Method 3: Craft your own chests

Complete the Scoorge McDuck quest and collect 25x Softwood and 25x Stone from your surroundings, place them in the craft station you got rewarded with for completing McDuck’s quest, and craft multiple chests.
