Disney Illusion Island Cheats and Tips
Pure Platforming Goodness
You have zero combat options in Disney Illusion Island, meaning you must use your platforming prowess to overcome every challenge and obstacle thrown your way.
This makes earning new Abilities crucial, as each one enables you to explore new parts of the world, access Collectibles, and much more. While there are boss encounters, you must use your Abilities to tackle mini-puzzles in the arena rather than use them to attack them directly.
With hints of a Metroidvania, Disney Illusion Island places a strong emphasis on its Abilities, gating off Collectibles and entire regions behind them, so be sure to progress through the main story if you want to see and do everything the game has to offer!
Co-Op Exclusive Abilities
Speaking of Abilities found in Disney Illusion Island, its cooperative play features exclusive actions for you and your friends that will help you tremendously when exploring its vast world.
Four Abilities become available when playing with others, all giving you a slight boost that can go a long way if used strategically and as a team. You can find the rundown on all Co-Op Abilities in the table below!
All Co-Op Exclusive Abilities

|Rope Drop||One player lowers a Rope off a platform, allowing their teammate to rappel down it to access new areas, gather Collectibles, and more.|

In addition to the extra Co-Op Abilities, you can further tune the game to your liking via its Accessibility Options, which you can tinker with at any point in your playthrough. If you find yourself struggling, don’t be afraid to try out some of these settings to make things more manageable.

How To Discover Hidden Areas
We touched upon the game’s strong focus on platforming a lot already, but you must be made aware of the game’s Hidden Areas, which house the game’s Collectibles, which can lead to some excellent bonuses for you, depending on what they are.
While there are many Hidden Areas in Disney Illusion Island, they are all fortunately easy to spot once you know what you’re looking for. Every Hidden Area will have a small notch removed, which you can see in the image provided above.
If you see an object in the environment with a similar-looking notch, navigate toward it to have the object disappear, revealing a whole new area to explore behind it. Upon discovering a Hidden Area, a small green bug will appear on the object, indicating you have already found it.
