If you’ve even opened your eyes over the last month, you are surely aware of Animal Crossing New Horizons, the newly released life simulator video game taking the world by storm during this time of quarantine. The game is helping people everywhere stay sane and feel some semblance of normal life. And Disney fans playing the game have kept me sustained with all the Disney Animal Crossing inspo I could ask for.
In today’s world, and in this game, anything goes. From holding online graduation ceremonies, to virtual birthday parties in game. After choosing the perfect Disney themed island name (if they remember in the beginning!), die hard Disney fans have added their own Disney touches to the game. Including recreating classic Disney rides, and meticulously designing Disney character outfits. So in this post I have curated a round up of all of the best Disney Animal Crossing inspo you need to make the island of your dreams!
I have been playing Animal Crossing a lot over the last month. And being the obsessed Disney fan that I am, I have been looking for ways to incorporate my love for Disney and the theme parks into my daily Animal Crossing life. So I have been stalking Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook Groups to find all of the best Disney Animal Crossing tips and inspiration. Keep reading for my list of the best Disney outfits (both in game and downloadable), island design tips, town tunes, and more!
1. Disney Animal Crossing Town Tunes
You can change your town tune with Isabelle in the upgraded Resident Services building (after you upgrade from the tent). Your town tune will play at different points in the game, like when you start a conversation with a villager. Or when the hourly bell rings. Isabelle will even sing it herself once it is initially registered! Disney fans have recreated some iconic Disney inspired town tunes you can use on your own island! Here is a selection of some of the best ones to date:
It’s a Small World:
A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes:
Be Our Guest:
Carousel of Progress: Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow:
Pirates of the Caribbean: Yo Ho Yo Ho a Pirate’s Life for Me:
Star Wars Imperial March:
2. Disney Animal Crossing Outfits
Disney character inspired outfits can play a big role in transforming your island into a Disney paradise. If you’re already familiar with how to install QR codes in the game and how to download designs from the kiosk in the Able Sister’s Shop simply read ahead. Otherwise, if this is your first time, or you need some extra guidance on how to do these things, that’s okay too! Check out this article on VG 24/7 for a step by step explanation with pictures.
In Game Clothing Pieces To Create a Disney Character Look
While there are tons of character looks you can download (listed below), there are also plenty of in-game pieces that can be combined to create character looks as well. So even if you can’t access the kiosk in Able Sister’s you can still rock these Disney looks. AND even more fun: try giving them to your villagers so you can have them be Disney characters!!!
Outfits You Can Download From The Kiosk In Able Sister’s Shop
If you have been playing the game for a while and you have unlocked the Able Sister’s Shop, then you can also download custom content for free through the kiosk in the back of their shop.
If you’re looking for one or two specific outfits or pieces, try the Nook’s Island (formerly Nookpedia) website instead. Nook’s Island is a community supported website that allows you to search for specific items including outfits, single clothing pieces, paths, and more. Here’s the link for Nook’s Island: https://nooksisland.com/
Once on the homepage, just click on custom designs, and then use the search bar to search for whatever you want! This is where I got the codes for the Woody and Buzz shirts I have in game, as well as a super cute goofy shirt, and countless other designs.
Otherwise, in order to see multiple downloadable options at once and get a general sense of what’s out there, I suggest this YouTube video as a starting point. There are also other YouTube videos you might see as well once you click through to this one. I chose to feature this one because it was the most comprehensive out of all the ones I’ve found on YouTube so far.
Disney Outfits Using QR Codes From Past Animal Crossing Games:
Besides the in-game clothing options, and the custom content you can download from the Able Sister’s Shop, there are also designs that people have created for previous Animal Crossing games. Basically, you scan the designs into your game using QR Codes. I prefer to use the Able Sister’s Shop kiosk to download custom content because they are newer designs and are therefore less pixelated and I think they look better overall. However, because people have been creating QR code designs for much longer than the new Pro Designs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there are some unique designs in QR form that you won’t find elsewhere.
So to find the best QR codes for Animal Crossing, I recommend to search on Pinterest, Tumblr or Reddit. For Reddit specifically, check out the Animal Crossing QR Codes subreddit here. You can then use the search tool to narrow down your results further as well.
