What is the Dream Suite?

A Safe Way to Show Off Your Island

Waking up.jpg
Like in the previous Animal Crossing Game, the Dream Suite is used to upload a copy of your island for other players to go into whenever they want, without affecting the actual island. This is a great way to show off and take inspiration for your island designs.

How to Dream

Sleep on Any Bed in Your House

Summer Update 2 - Sleep in any Bed
To access the Dream Suite, simply go to any bed in your house and lie down. Choose to go to sleep to start dreaming. Unlike New Leaf, that's all you have to do to access the Dream Suite, so Luna will probably never get a physical shop on your island.

Get Luna's Bed

Lunas Bed Icon

After updating to Ver. 1.4, you can find a letter from Luna in your Mail Box. She has sent you a super nice bed, so make sure you claim it!

Enter the Dream Address

Enter Dream Address.jpg
As you doze off, Luna the Tapir will appear and help you visit other islands in your dreams through a Dream Address. Simply enter the Dream Address to go to the island.

If you are looking for inspiration, take a peek at our top Dream Codes and Dream Towns with varying themes!
Top Dream Addresses and Dream Towns

Your Pockets Will Be Emptied

Before you head off to a Dream Town, Luna will hold onto your items, so you will wake up on the island empty-handed.

How to Go Back to Your Island

Waking up.jpg
In the previous game, you can wake up or go back to your island by going to the back to Luna and spot you arrived and sleeping again. In New Horizons, Luna and the bed you arrived on will be in front of Resident Services!

How to Share Your Dream Address

Talk to Luna to Share Your Dream

Uploading dream.jpg
For other players to be able to access your island in a dream, go to bed to talk to Luna to be able to create and share your Dream Address with other players.

You can also delete your dream, and players will not be able to access your island anymore through Dream Suite. When you upload a new one, it will not be accessible until the next day.

Dreams Can Be Updated Once a Day

To reflect any changes you made on your island in the dream, you will need to update your dream. You can update your dream once per day.

Receive a Dream Bell Exchange Ticket

Receive Dream Bell Exchange Ticket.jpg

When you upload your dream, you will get a Dream Bell Exchange Ticket from Luna in your mail the next day, as a thanks for sharing your dream. You can sell Dream Tickets for 5,000 Bells at Nook's Cranny.

Change Your Dream Address Privacy

Dream Address Privacy.jpg
When you upload your dream island, you will get a generated Dream Adress which can be seen on your Passport, and on the island map. You can choose to hide them by adjusting the Dream Address privacy.

How to Get Dream Addresses

You can find Dream Codes of other players on their Passports and island maps, if they have it displayed.

If you're looking for more Dream Towns to go into, check out our Dream Address Share Board. You can leave yours too!

Dream Limitations
  • You cannot visit random islands
  • You cannot craft items and learn recipes
  • You cannot catalog furniture
  • You can catch creatures... but only in the dream
  • All items you pick up will be gone

You Cannot Visit Random Islands

In the previous game, New Leaf, you could visit an island at random without the need of a Dream Address. However, that is not the case for New Horizons. You will need to have the Dream Address of the player before you can access their island in your dreams.

You can use our Dream Address Share Board to share dreams with players all around the world!

You Cannot Craft and Learn Recipes

Cannot learn recipe.jpg
You cannot craft items or learn recipes in dreams. You also cannot catalog furniture, as when you wake up, those items will not be found in your Nook Shopping Catalog.

You Cannot Take Home Items and Creatures
