How to Fix Disney Dreamlight Valley Stuck on Loading Screen

There are a few things that you can do to potentially fix the bug where Disney Dreamlight Valley gets stuck on the loading screen. That, however, depends on what the cause for the bug is. It can be internal and external, as it turns out. If the bug is on your end, then you’ve either run into a glitch or your internet connection is having hiccups. So, you have to check whether your connection is working, and if it isn’t, reboot your router. Another thing that seems to work is simply restarting the game. As in, no matter your platform, make sure to exit the app and shut it down completely, then restart it. That has apparently worked for a number of players.

On the other hand, if Disney Dreamlight Valley gets stuck on the loading screen but everything is working on your end, then you can’t really do anything to fix it. Why? Because that means it’s a server-side error. So, whatever is going on, the developers have to take care of it. Most commonly, the cause is server overload, so you just have to wait for the situation to clear up. For example, on launch day, Australians just could not get into Dreamlight Valley for love or money because everyone was trying to get in at the same time. Then, when things died down a bit, the “bug” went away. So, yeah, those are the potential solutions for the problem as far as we know. If you know something on the subject that we haven’t mentioned, let us know in the comments.

    I’ve been able to play just fine today and yesterday but when I went to log in around 9pm tonight, I got “game initialization error #5” and it won’t load the game. I tried restarting the game, my computer, and repairing the files. I have no idea what could’ve caused this and no idea how to fix it. Any help??

      Same thing with me. But I’ve been playing offline so I don’t understand what is going on.

    I’ve been playing the last few days and I’ve had to restart 4 times because of the stupid initialising error #7 at the Home Screen when I try to select Continue. I’m playing on Xbox, internet connection is fine. Please fix it!!
