Animal Crossing New Horizons Dream Suite: How to Visit Other Players’ Islands

dream suite

The second wave of the Animal Crossing New Horizons summer update is here and one of the new features added to the game is the return of the Dream Suite. This feature allows you to visit other players’ islands, even when they are offline. It’s not exactly the same Dream Suite as it existed in New Leaf; this time, it doesn’t have its own building. Since things are a bit different in New Horizons, we’ll walk you through how to visit other players’ islands using the Dream Suite in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Thankfully, visiting another player’s island using the Dream Suite is nice and easy.

How to Visit Other Players’ Islands Using Dream Suite in Animal Crossing New Horizons

All you have to do is place a bed somewhere in your house or tent and walk towards it to lie in it.

Once you’re lying in the bed, it will ask you if you want to get some sleep. Choosing “Yeah, I want to sleep…” will take you to the Dream Suite, while choosing “I’ll just lie down” will let you remain in your house.

Sleeping will take you to a dreamland where you’ll meet a tapir named Luna. Luna runs the dream world and you can choose to either visit another player’s island using their “dream address” or upload your island for others to visit.

This “dream address” is different for each person and works similarly to the dodo codes used when traveling via airport.

However, the Dream Suite works a bit differently than visiting other players’ islands through the Dodo Airport. It allows you to visit them even when they are offline. This means the other person won’t actually be there in real-time to hang out.

When you’re visiting someone’s island through a dream, you can interact with everything on their island, but nothing you do there is saved in their own game. That means you can rest easy with others visiting your island and not have to worry about them destroying your hard work.

You can only upload one version of your island to the Dream Suite at a time, so if you make changes to your island, your visitors will see whichever version was uploaded most recently.

Also, the time of day and season in which you upload your island will lock the visitors into that same time and season while visiting. If you want your visitors to see your island in the early hours of the morning, for example, make sure you upload it at that time.

Shops such as the Able Sisters and Nook’s Cranny will not be available within the dream visits, so it does not matter if you upload your island to the suite while they are closed.

The other important thing to keep in mind when using this feature is that you must have an active Nintendo Switch Online membership in order to use it.

Overall, the Dream Suite is a great way to visit other peoples’ islands (and have others visit yours) without having to worry about being online at the same time or messing up their progress.

That’s everything you need to know about how to visit other players’ islands using the Dream Suite.
