How to Free the Water Source in Disney Dreamlight Valley

When you initially speak to Simba about this, you’ll be in an area with a waterfall and river, awaiting further instructions. Since you have to free the water source, you may first suspect that this water-filled region is your destination. However, this isn’t the case. Instead, backtrack to the Dried-Out Oasis and search around for some rocks.

In the Oasis area, you’ll find stumps, plants and thorns all around, but it isn’t immediately obvious where these rocks are. If you’re coming out of the mushroom cave into this area, turn right and, before reaching the realm’s entrance portal, turn again toward the cliff. You’ll see massive animal bones with the rocks underneath! Break these to release the water, revitalizing the Oasis.
