Disney Dreamlight Valley: Shine a Light Quest Guide

Below are the steps for completing the “Shine a Light” quest in Disney Dreamlight Valley:

  • Talk to Mother Gothel
  • Gather the materials to craft the Sunlight Torches – Softwood, Fiber, Garnet, Aquamarine, and Citrine
  • Craft 3 Sunlight Torches
  • Talk to Mother Gothel
  • Place the Sunlight Torches at the bottom of the Mystical Cave
  • Take a picture of the strange symbols.
  • Return to Mother Gothel.

After completing the My Kingdom For a Scroll quest, speak to Mother Gothel to initiate this mission. She’ll inform you that she’s taken a look at the Sun Scroll and needs Sunlight Torches to proceed. Your next task is to make three torches before venturing down into the Mystical Cave in Dazzle Beach to place them.

To craft the Sunlight Torches, you need the following resources:

  • Softwood x45 – Drops on the ground around trees in most areas of the game (Excluding Dazzle Beach)
  • Fiber x60 – Craft using Seaweed, which you can fish from most areas of the game (Excluding the Plaza)
  • Garnet x3 – Mine from dark cliffside stones in the Plaza and Peaceful Meadow
  • Aquamarine x3 – Mine from dark cliffside stones in Dazzle Beach and the Forest of Valor
  • Citrines x3 – Mine from dark cliffside stones in the Glade of Trust and Sunlit Plateau

Since you need every area up to the Glade of Trust opened to unlock Mother Gothel, all of these resources are available for you to find.

After collecting each material, head to any nearby crafting station to make the torches before speaking to Mother Gothel again. She’ll tell you to head to the Mystical Cave, where you’ll place down each torch. Head down the cave, past the cooking trial, until you reach the fishing area from the final puzzle. Place the torches on the three stone plates in this room to activate the shrine.

When the stone shrine’s lights start to glow, take a picture of it before returning to Mother Gothel. Angle your camera so that all three fire symbols appear in the shot. After taking the photos and showing Mother Gothel your findings, she’ll start to examine them, concluding the quest.

Disney Dreamlight Valley is available to play on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation platforms through the official website. If you’d like to explore other quest guides, check out our The Spirits of Nature Quest Guide and The Unknown Flavor Quest Guide.
