Visitors are the characters, such as wizards, princesses, and more, who wander around your park.
Visitors are not playable characters and currently serve no purpose in the game other than to make your park more realistic, except for Sandakloz during the Season of Goodies. So do not worry if your visitors count is low. You could use them as a gauge to see how well you are doing but they are not the most accurate choice because the amount of visitors you have will fall over time if your park has not been majorly changed in a while.
You can see how many visitors you have at any time by looking at the icon on left side of the screen. The number below the two visitors indicates how many are in your park. Additionally, you can tap it to see a hint for getting more visitors.
To get more visitors, add more dragons and decorations to your park. Repeat this step for each island you own. The maximum number of visitors per island seems to be proportional to the number of dragons you have on that island minus any that are in your breeding caves. So if you have seven dragons on an island, seven visitors will show up as long as the Entrance Portal is visible on your screen (considering you don't have decorations and other items to add more visitors).
Beginning December 23, 2011, for the holiday season, visitors dressed as Santa Claus (called Sandakloz) in DragonVale parks in addition to the usual visitors. These special visitors disappeared after the holiday season was over.
Whitbee's Candy Bash Visitors
Beginning October 9, 2014, for the Whitbee's Candy Bash event, visitors dressed in different costumes in DragonVale parks instead of the usual visitors. The different costumes consisted of a: werewolf, ghost, pumpkin head, witch on a broom, Frankenstein's bride, mummy, knight, and a wizard wearing a hat similar to Whitbee's hat carrying a staff topped with a candy corn to commemorate the event. These special visitors disappeared when the Whitbee's Candy Bash event was over.
Season of Goodies Visitors
Beginning December 17, 2014, for the Season of Goodies event, visitors dressed in different costumes in DragonVale parks instead of the usual visitors. The different costumes consisted of a: penguin trio, abominable snowman (yeti), snowman with a red cap, wizard dressed in green pulling a sled with presents on top, and Sandakloz.
- Visitors do not visit the Epic Breeding Island, Gemstone Island, and the Rift Island even though they are islands. Visitors cannot visit these islands as they do not have Magic Portals.
- When you zoom out on your island(s) to a certain point, the visitors appear to fade. Zooming out slowly proves this.
