In Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll definitely want to stay on top of the tools at your disposal. Especially considering how certain areas are inaccessible without upgrading a specific tool! It can be particularly frustrating when you need to get to a specific area, but you’re blocked by mushrooms or tree trunks. But, how can you upgrade your tools? Read on to learn about upgrading tools in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

How to Upgrade Royal Tools

In Dreamlight Valley, there are three tools that can be upgraded — the Pickaxe, the Shovel, and the Watering Can. Each can be upgraded in different locations by interacting with different characters.

Pickaxe Upgrades — Ice

To earn the ice upgrade for your pickaxe, follow these instructions:

  • Travel to the Frozen Realm.
  • Speak with Elsa; complete her quests. Doing so will unlock the first of two ice upgrades, allowing for the breaking of small ice crystals. Alas, in order to do this at all, you’ll first need to do several quests for Anna.
  • Once Elsa moves to Dreamlight Valley, complete the ‘Breaking the Ice’ quest, and you’ll unlock the second ice upgrade, allowing for the breaking of large ice crystals.
