Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to Unlock Gaston



Disney Dreamlight Valley - Unlock Gaston

Gaston is one of the new characters in Disney Dreamoight Valley added with the A Rift in Time expansion. He is one of the long-awaited characters in the Dreamlight Valley and with the new expansion, players will be able to unlock him by completing his series of starting quests. However, since he is tied to the expansion, players must own the expansion to discover and unlock him.

In this guide, we’ll go over how you can unlock Gaston in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

How to Unlock Gaston in Disney Dreamlight Valley

As mentioned above, the first and foremost requirement for unlocking Gaston is owning the A Rift in Time expansion. Once players have bought the Expansion, they will be able to travel to Eternity Isle, a new world beyond Dreamlight Valley that was lost in time. The Eternity Isle consists of three different biomes and Gaston can be found roaming around in the Glittering Dunes biome.

The Glittering Dunes biome is located on the west side of Eternity Isle and players can reach this biome by fixing the bridge. Once there, players will be able to find him roaming around in The Plains area of Glittering Dunes. Talk to Gaston to start “The Wanderer of the Dunes” quest leading to “The Wild Tangle Swarm” and “Diamond in the Rough” quests. Players need to complete all three of these quests to unlock Gaston.

Here is the breakdown of all the starting quests for unlocking Gaston in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

The Wanderer of the Dunes

Talking to Gaston will start The Wanderer of the Dunes quest and you will have to gather some food items for him. Gather the following items around The Plains area.

  • Green Spiky-Leafed Plants
    • Agave – Found all over Glittering Dunes.
  • Flexing Spider-Like Thing
    • Scorpion – Found in the Blue fishing spots in quicksand.
  • Sweet Brown Raisin Things
    • Dates – Found on trees all over Glittering Dunes.

Give the items to Gaston and follow him to his encampment. You will have to gather three clues around his encampment.

  • Coconut Husks: By the barrels near the BBQ Grill.
  • Homemade Glude: In the chest beside the tent.
  • Paint Palette: On the box beside the tent.

Show all the clues you found to Gaston and follow him toward The Wastes area. You will need 4,000 Mist to unlock The Wastes area and once you have unlocked it, follow Gaston to his ship. Talk to Gaston near his Ship and fish out an item named ‘LeFou’ from the Golden fishing spot in nearby quicksand.

Talk to Gaston about LeFou and then use the Hourglass tool to search for Desert Scarab Piece in The Plains area. After finding the piece, use of the Hologram Station to talk to Jafar. Once done talking to Jafar, go back to Gaston and LeFou to conclude the quest.

The Wild Triangle Swarm

Upon completing The Wandered of the Dunes, you will have to wait a few hours as Gaston ‘re-center himself’. Once he is back in Eternity Isle, talk to him to get the objective of talking to Rapunzel. Locate Rapunzel on the map and go talk to her. She will tell you to find the Swarming Insects in The Grove area for which you will need 4,000 Mist to unlock it. If you have already unlocked Rapunzel as a villager, then this area will be unlocked for you.

Make your way to the northeastern side of The Grove area near the entrance to The Lagoon area to find the Swarming Insects. Take a picture of the swarming insects and show it to Rapunzel. She will task you with gathering the following flowers to make arrangements.

  • 4x Green Fly Trap
  • 4x Purple Fly Trap
  • 4x Red Pitcher Plant
  • 4x Yellow Pitcher Plant
  • 12x Tropical Wood

All of these flowers and wood are found inside the areas of the Wild Tangle biome and once you have gathered all of them, use them to craft two Carnivorous Floral Arrangements at the crafting station. Now, go to the location where you found the swarming insects and place both of the Floral Arrangements near them.

Now, check on Gaston to see how he is doing with his task and after talking to him, go back to The Grove to see if all the insects are cleared from the pedestal. Pick up the Jungle Scarab Piece from the pedestal and interact with one of the Hologram Stations to talk to Jafar.

Jafar will give you a blueprint of a recipe and you need to repair it at the Timebending Table for which you need 1,000 Mist. Once you have the required resources, repair the Jungle Scarab Piece and report back to Jafar to learn the next step which will conclude the quest.

Diamond in the Rough

With both Desert Scarab Piece and Jungle Scarab Piece in your inventory, go to Gaston and ask him about the assembling of Scarab Key. After that, a Scarab’s trail will show up and you need to follow it to reach and open the Cave of Wonders.

Enter the Cave of Wonders and you need to solve the puzzles to surpass each room to open a linear path toward a statue. Interacting with the statue will give you the Jewel of Time and after that, you can exit the Cave of Wonders to talk to Gaston to conclude the quest and unlock him as a villager.
