All Critters favorite foods in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Now if only they could talk...

There are a lot of adorable critters running around the Valley and Eternity Isle in Disney Dreamlight Valley and each of them has their own tastes and behaviour. Each critter can become a companion, if they trust you enough, but earning that trust is easier said than done.

Whether you’re desperate for a Raccoon to follow you everywhere you go or want a Cobra to be your best bud, you need to learn their likes and dislikes as well as how to approach each animal. 

While some critters don’t mind your presence, others will repeatedly run away and entice you into chasing them. There’s a lot to remember, but it soon becomes second nature, especially for your personal favorites.
