Dream Suite Explained

How Does Dreaming Work?

ACNH - Mail from Luna (Update 1.6).png

This feature is only available in ver 1.4.0 or later.

A Safe Way to Show Off Your Island

Similar to the Dream Suite introduced in the past Animal Crossing games, Dreaming is used to upload a copy of your island.

Other players can go see it whenever they want, without affecting the actual island. This is a great way to show off or get inspiration for your island designs!

This also allows visitors to save Custom Designs you have made and uploaded on the Custom Designs Portal.

Check out the Best Islands out there

Be sure to check out the top Dream Addresses from all over the world, and give them a visit! You can use these islands as inspiration to give you an idea how to design your island!

Visiting Guide: How to Access Dream Islands

Sleep on Any Bed in Your House

ACNH - Sleep in any Bed
To access the Dream Suite feature, simply go to any bed in your house and lie down. Choose to go to sleep to start dreaming.

Unlike New Leaf's Dream Suite, that's all you have to do to access Dreaming, 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

ACNH - Enter Dream Address
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 access your desire Dream Island.

Share and Save Dreams on Our Board

If you do not have a Dream Address to input yet, take a peek at our Dream Address Share Board to find hundreds of islands you can visit. You can leave yours too, if you want to share it to the world!
Dream Address Share Board

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

ACNH - Waking up on a Dream Island
To wake up, simply go back to the island's Plaza where you can find Luna, and lie down on the bed to wake up and return to your island.

Revisit Dreams through a Dream List

ACNH - Dream List
In Ver 1.5 or later, you will be able to revisit the last 50 Dream Addresses you have visited, and you will even be able to save your favorites for quick, inspirational visits!

To do so, when you go to bed to dream, choose to revisit a dream. A list of the last Dream Addresses you have visited will appear, and you can press X to mark them as your favorite.

Fall and Halloween Update

Visit Dreams Randomly

ACNH - Dream Suite Surprise Me.png
In Ver 1.6., as part of the Winter Update, you can now visit dream islands randomly without using a Dream Address.

To do so, when you go to bed to dream, choose the Surprise Me option. Luna will then send you to a random dream island!

Add Your Island to Surprise Sharing

ACNH - Dream Suite Surprise Sharing.png
In Ver 1.6., as part of the Winter Update, you can now also share your dream randomly through Surprise Sharing.
ACNH - Dream Suite Surprise Sharing Settings.png
After updating the game, Luna will ask you if you want to enable Surprise Sharing for your island. You can also set it any time by choosing the Adjust surprise sharing option.

How to Create and Share Your Dream Address

Talk to Luna to Share Your Dream

ANCH - Connecting to Internet
For other players to be able to access your island in a dream, go to bed to talk to Luna to be able to upload your Dream and create a Dream Address to share 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

ACNH - Receive Dream Bell Exchange Ticket

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

ACNH - Set Dream Address to Public
When you upload your dream island, you will get a generated Dream Address 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, use our Dream Address Share Board.
