Disney Dreamlight Valley has a lot to do. There’s fishing, farming, and loads of character-dependent quests. However, sometimes characters who need your help will go to bed. Remy is one of them. If you happen to find Remy sleeping, what can you do to wake him up? Why is Remy going to sleep to begin with?
Why Is Remy Sleeping in Disney Dreamlight Valley?
Remy going to sleep is an intentional mechanic of Disney Dreamlight Valley. The game is based around a synced clock, which means the in-game world is synced to real-world time. Put another way, the passage of day and night are the same both in-game and out.
If you approach Remy in the night, you’ll find him sleeping, because that’s when he sleeps. If you need to speak with him, you need to play the game during real-world daylight hours while he’s awake.
Naturally, this means the game is a little different while playing at night as compared to the day. In other words, you’re not going to be able to interact with Remy, or any of the other characters really, while it’s nighttime and they’re asleep. However, if you really need to interact with them, there is something else you can do.
If you’re playing on a console, there is a workaround. To force Remy or other characters to wake up, you can always change your system’s date and time to the next morning. As long as your console thinks its daytime, they’ll be awake, and you’ll be able to interact with them. This is called “time traveling” in the Animal Crossing community, and works the same way in Disney Dreamlight Valley. Some consider this behavior to be cheating, and will frown upon it. However, given that it’s a single-player game, this sort of method really only affects you. Feel free to use it at your own discretion.
