To update Disney Dreamlight Valley on Xbox, there are a few simple steps you’ll need to follow. First, make your way into the My Apps & Games section, and either find DDLV or make your way down to Manage on the lefthand side of the screen. If you go directly to the Dreamlight Valley icon, you’ll want to press the  Button (or start for us old-school gamers), and select Manage Game and Add-Ons. You’ll see 1 Update Available if it hasn’t been automatically pushed through, select this option, and you’ll be ready to go.

If you chose to go the Manage route, however, you’ll just want to go to Updates and select Update All. This is going to be the faster method by far, so we strongly recommend just going to Manage, Updates, and Update All to get everything on your console updated at once.
