However, unlike other ingredients, Ginger needs to be foraged and cannot be purchased from Remy’s Pantry or Goofy’s Stall. If you’re wondering how and where to get it, here’s what you need to do.
Where to Find Ginger in Disney Dreamlight Valley?
You can only get Ginger once you’ve unlocked the pathway through Forgotten Lands, which will cost you 15,000 Dreamlights. However, you won’t be able to access the Forgotten Lands until you’ve unlocked Sunlit Plateau, which costs 7,000 Dreamlights. This means that Ginger is only obtainable after spending a stunning 22,000 Dreamlights to unlock both Biomes.
22,000 Dreamlights is no joke, but you should be able to earn this much by completing milestones and Dreamlight Duties, just take it slow and enjoy the game, no need to rush.
Once you’re in the Forgotten Lands, you can then find Ginger nodes on the ground scattered everywhere within the area. See the image above for reference.
Like Garlic, the actual Ginger isn’t what you’ll notice on the ground; instead, you’ll see green, long leaves contrasting the dark purple grass in the area. Since Ginger sprouts in unexpected places, there’s no point in waiting for it to return to the spot from which you originally harvested it.
Additionally, be sure to bring along a friend as well who can fill the foraging role. While they won’t improve your odds of getting ginger, they might throw in an extra grab if you harvest one.
