Introduced during Animal Crossing: New Horizons’s 1.4.0 patch, Dream Suite allows players to visit dream versions of other player-created islands.
Any player can show off their island to other players by creating a Dream Address. All that you need to be able to explore island dreams of other players is a bed and internet connection.
In this guide, we’ll explain how to dream in animal crossing. Without further ado, let us dive straight in.
How to Dream in Animal Crossing: New Horizons Explained
Thanks to the Dream Suite, you’re able to create a dream version of your island. This allows you to showcase your island to other players. In turn, you can visit other players’ dream islands given you have the right Dream Address.
While visiting a dream island, you won’t be able to affect it in any way. You won’t be able to steal anything from it or have an impact on it whatsoever. Dream islands are meant just to be explored rather than interacted with.
This is a perfect opportunity for players to show off their islands to others without the fear of being sabotaged.
That being said, there are three conditions you must meet in order to use the Dream Suite. The first condition is to have the 1.4.0 update installed. Then, you need an internet connection. Lastly, you’ll need to have an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription in order to access Animal Crossing’s online services.
Accessing Dream Suite in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
After installing the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.4.0 update, the Dream Suite will become accessible.
Once you’ve done it, you’ll be invited by Luna to visit the Dream Suite. The invitation letter will also contain Luna’s bed.
However, you can use any other bed in New Horizons to do the same thing.
As for how to dream in animal crossing, you just have to lie down on the bed and pick the ‘Yeah, I want to sleep…’ option. Then, you’ll be transported to the Dream Suite.
By picking the ‘I’ll just lie down’ option, you’ll just use the bed like any other piece of furniture.
How to visit an island Dream Suite in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
The first thing you need to do to visit another player’s dream island is to have the correct Dream Address.
Without a Dream Address, you can’t access any other island. To find Dream Addresses, you should either ask a friend for his Dream Address or visit the Animal Crossing: New Horizons subreddit.
Once you acquire a Dream Address, just go to sleep and meet with Luna in the Dream Suite. Then, pick the ‘I want to dream’ option. If you have an established internet connection, you should be prompted to input the Dream Address of the island you want to visit.
After submitting the Dream Address, Luna will tell you the name of the island and will ask you to confirm. If that’s the island you’re looking for, pick ‘Yes, it is!”
Once you’ve done that, you’ll be spawned on your bed just outside of the Residential Services of the dream version of the island you’re visiting. You can start exploring the island and talking with its residents, but that’s about all you can do.
You’ll also be able to find the other player if they’re logged on, and you can chat with them. Just keep in mind that you won’t have access to any tools, so you’ll be limited to using inclines and bridges to fully explore the island.
Last but not least, you’ll find a Custom Design Portal that belongs to the island’s owner. This portal will allow you to browse and copy any of the island owner’s available designs.
If you’re finished with your tour and want to leave, lie down on the bed again and pick ‘I want to wake up!’ You’ll then wake up again in the bed you’ve slept in on your own island.
Creating a Dream Address for Dream Suite
If you want to showcase your island to other players using the Dream Suite in New Horizons, you’ll have to create your own Dream Address. This can be done by selecting ‘I’d like to share a dream’ from the menu that Luna offers.
Just keep in mind that by creating and sharing your Dream Address with other people, you’re making your island and everything in it available to the public. This means that everyone will be able to see the look of your island, your custom designs, your name, bulletin-board posts, passport information as well as other information.
If you don’t want to make that information available to the public, we recommend you avoid making a Dream Address and sharing it with others.
Once you’re ready to make your Dream Address, Luna will establish a connection to the internet and create a dream copy of your island. Then, she will provide you with the Dream Address, which begins with DA and contains 12 digits.
Your Dream Address will also be displayed on your island map and Passport. Having said that, you can ask Luna to remove the Dream Address from those places later on if you want to.
And there you go! You’re now able to share your Dream Address with other people. You should be able to showcase your island in its full glory and not have to worry about anyone disrupting the peace or destroying anything.
You can share your Dream Address with your friends, or you can go on the Animal Crossing: New Horizons subreddit where you’ll be able to share it with everyone.
However, it’s important to note that the version that will be showcased will be the version of the day you dreamt it. If you want to update the dream version, you can go back to Luna and ask her to update your dream. She can also update the dream version on a daily basis.
