How To Get Iron Ingot in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Iron ingot is everywhere in Disney Dreamlight Valley!

Want to know the best way to get iron ingot in Disney Dreamlight Valley? We are guessing from the game’s presence on Twitch lately, that would be a yes. A lot of people were pretty hesitant about this game and questioned if it would just feel like a Animal Crossing clone. The answer is that it does, but isn’t that why we love world builders? There is also enough cool Disney stuff infused that it truly stands on its own two feet. But if you want to shine at DDV, getting iron ore is very necessary. But what you can craft from it makes it well worth the struggle to get.

It should be known you cannot buy iron ore at any store. You NEED to craft it. Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself.

How To Get iron Ingot in Disney Dreamlight Valley

To begin with, you need to restore the Pillar of Friendship in the Peaceful Meadow. Once the Pillar of Friendship has been restored, you will have access to the rest of the biomes in the game. Just make sure you have enough Dreamlight to clear the Night Thorns in front of them.

From there, Iron Ore can be found in the following biomes:

  • Sunlit Plateau
  • Forest of Valor
  • Forgotten Lands
  • Glade of Trust
  • Frosted Heights

The Forest of Valor is the cheapest unlock up front, so it’s wise to start there.

Another fantastic method for ore extraction is by destroying the large ore veins that appear as black rocks along rock walls. They are found in Peaceful Meadow and The Plaza. Once you have enough Iron Ore, you can go to a crafting table to make Iron Ingot.

It takes five Iron Ore and one Coal Ore to make one Iron Ingot. Now just mine and craft away to your heart’s content.


So that’s all you need to know about how to get iron ingot in Disney Dreamlight Valley (for now). Now grab your pickaxe and show Mickey Mouse what you are made of. Wait, that sounded like I want you to kill him. Nah, I meant “impress” him with a fat stack of ingots.

And please check back for updates, as there will be many.
