Animal Crossing: New Horizons is having a big day, today! Not only are we at the end of the month, we’re also on launch day of a new update. Sure, the August fireworks events are fun and all, but there are also permanent changes that came with the update as well. One of those, which we previously covered, is dreaming.
This lets players visit each others’ islands, but without letting them change anything. It’s a good way for strangers to show off their island and design efforts without risking the chaos that could result from live sharing. But to share your dream islands, first you have to establish your unique dream address code. So here’s how to get rolling in the realm of Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s metaphysical travel.
How to Find Your Animal Crossing: New Horizons Dream Address
First you’ll need to be an active Nintendo Switch Online subscriber. Next, you’ll need to have upgraded your tent to a home, and have a bed inside. With the latest update, when you lay down in your bed you’ll get the option to go to sleep. From there you’ll be transported to an ethereal dreamland where you’ll meet Luna, a returning series character.
When you’re talking to Luna, select the “I’d like to share a dream” option. The game will connect to the internet, and Luna will give you your 12-digit dream address code. From then on, you’ll be able to find your dream address on the map and passport screens. You can do this once a day, if you want to keep your dream island up to date.
Alternatively, if you want to visit someone else’s island, tell Luna you want to dream. You’ll be prompted to enter a dream address code (many of which you can find on social media spaces, if you just want to look at cool designs). From there you’ll wake up on the dream island by its Resident Services building. You can explore all you want, but you can’t make changes or bring anything back with you. Once you’re done, simply return to your bed and go back to sleep.
