Disney Speedstorm is now free to play across all platforms, featuring an expanded roster of 37 playable characters from across the Disney universe. With an extensive roster of characters at your disposal, you have the opportunity to unlock each one, delving into their unique abilities and ultimately determining your preferred racer. However, given that it is a free-to-play game, players won’t have instant access to every character.
Given that it is a free-to-play game, players, however, won’t have instant access to every character, but don’t fret. There are various ways in which you can unlock Disney Speedstorm characters by taking advantage of the game’s in-game features and more.
Update: Founder’s Packs are no longer available since the game ended its early access phase on September 28, 2023.

As of now, you can only acquire shards for early access characters from the shop, daily boxes, and timed events.
How to Unlock Disney Speedstorm Characters
Disney Speedstorm characters in general can be unlocked with Shards. Every character has their own unique racer shard, which initially needs 10 in order to unlock and upgrade that specific character
If you’re curious about how to earn more Shards in the game effectively, here are the best methods you can try:
Starter Circuit Rewards
The Starter Circuit is basically the tutorial for your racing journey, and completing it will guarantee you three unlockable characters: Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, along with some other racer-exclusive cosmetics and items. It’s pretty easy, so chill out.
There are two multiplayer modes in Disney Speedstorm in which you can earn free Shards: Ranked and Regulated. Playing in ranked matches with a racer of your choice will eventually reward you with shards as you rank up. Same as with Regulated.
Golden Pass Tier Rewards
This serves as the battle pass for the game, and it may be upgraded to avail the rewards on the Premium Pass, which includes shards. However, Golden Pass racer shards will be tied to specific characters depending on the current season’s featured racers. There are many rewards for both free and paid access tiers across all 50 tiers, so it’s kind of worth it to upgrade just to get that seasonal content.
Disney Speedstorm Shop
You can spend your coins for Shards at the shop. There are limited packs and boxes tied to various Disney titles, which are definitely worth checking out. Increasing your Golden Pass level is a way to gain coins too, which you can then spend in the shop if there’s anything worth buying at the moment. There’s a Free Box to collect daily as well.
Time Limited Events
You can simply earn shards and other rewards by completing objectives during timed events of the a featured racer.
Season tours are manageable events that take place across multiple chapters and award shards, including other various rewards. As you move through the chapters, you’ll win shards that correspond to the racer you’re playing as.
