As you progress into Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll unlock resources that help you build specific furniture items. While building a crate using Hardwood might sound boring, making Carts or Tool Racks might sound far more exciting. To make both of these, though, you need Dark Wood.

How to Get Dark Wood in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Dark Wood is a resource native to the Forgotten Lands. The Forgotten Lands are likely one of, if not the last, area you’ll unlock in the current early access version of the game. Not only do you require access to Sunlit Plateau to reach its ramps, but removing the Forgotten Land Night Thorns costs 15,000 Dreamlight.
Upon entering the Forgotten Lands, you’ll immediately find dark trees with pink leaves. When you run around these trees, you’ll often find one of four wood types on the ground:
- Softwood: A light brown wood that you can also find in the Plaza, Peaceful Meadow, and other early-game regions.
- Hardwood: A red-brown wood you can also spot in mid-game areas such as the Glade of Trust, Forest of Valor, and Sunlit Plateau.
- Dry Wood: A grey-white wood you’ll find in Sunlit Plateau, Frosted Heights, and the Forgotten Lands.
- Dark Wood: A black wood found exclusively in the Forgotten Lands.
Since the Forgotten Lands are a dark area, mainly lit up by green fire scattered around, it isn’t too difficult to spot Dark Wood once you know what to look for. Unlike the other tree wood types, Dark Wood is, well, dark. It has a desaturated grey-black color to it that matches the nearby trees.
Resources like Softwood and Hardwood, on the other hand, are both brown, creating a stark contrast between their bright colors and the dark, gloomy nature of this region. The image above highlights this difference further.
