Animal Crossing: New Horizons—Top Five Dream Islands

I wish I could pick what I dream about in real-life.

Back at the end of July we got an exciting update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Part of the update introduced Luna, and allowed us to dream and be transported to islands other players from around the world created and uploaded. Something really nice about the Dream Island update, is now you don’t have to coordinate with anyone or meet up with strangers if you want to see REALLY cool and creative islands. I like going to Dream Islands because it allows me to explore Animal Crossing: New Horizons in new ways and see what creative things other players came up with. In this post, I am going to talk about five of my favorite Dream Islands.

Also as a side-note/reminder, I am not sponsored by anyone. All of these Dream Islands I recommend are purely Dream Islands I personally have enjoyed and think others would too!

5. Tropical Paradise on the island Dernet

“You put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up!”

I LOVE the beach! And the creator of this island did an AMAZING job creating a beautiful island resort. If this place existed in real life I would go there every summer! At the entrance of the resort, you are given: tools, a workbench (in case you want to craft anything during your visit), a hula top, a grass skirt, and gladiator sandals. Once you’re all dressed up, you can explore the island! This resort features a number of amenities including: a beach house, resort hotel, many beach themed shops, a beach-front gym, scenic routes through tropical forests, resort restaurants, a soccer field, and an outdoor wedding venue!

There are many places you can sit down, relax, and enjoy the view. Even with all of these sites, the creator managed to organize their island in a way that isn’t incredibly difficult to navigate. It’s easy to get around and you don’t get lost. Sometimes when creators are making a Dream Island, they cram everything together and its hard to get around. This island flowed easily and was nice to explore. If you’re interested in exploring this Tropical Paradise as well, the Dream Address for this island is: DA-0436-6224-5809.

I am so ready to go back to the beach in real-life!

4. Konoha Maze


This Dream Island creator probably spent hundreds of hours turning their Dream Island into a giant maze. Literally the ENTIRE ISLAND is a maze. When you first come into this Dream Island, you find the creator has left you a timer and the King Tut Mask. The timer is in case you want to try to and see how fast you can complete the maze. The King Tut Mask I’m guessing is if you want to make things difficult by tripping while completing the maze. (In case you didn’t know, the King Tut Mask is cursed and makes the wearer of it trip when running). Anyways, I had a lot of fun completing this maze! It was a brain teaser too! There are hidden pathways you need to take or you can’t complete the maze, and sometimes they weren’t very obvious. Plus there were a lot of challenges along the way!

So many pitfall seeds…

In the end, I completed this maze in about 15 minutes and 47 seconds. Not bad seeing how I always run in circles in corn mazes and such! You know you’ve reached the end of the maze when you see the parade of toilet lids lifting up as you run past. (Confused by what I mean, you’ll see, its hilarious)! Once you ring the bell at the end of the maze, you’re done! There’s some sparklers you can light to celebrate your achievement, and the creator left a ladder for those who finish so they can return to Luna quicker!

The Walk of Fame

I will say this Dream Island is something you only visit once, since once you’ve done the maze you know all the tricks. But either way, I really enjoyed this Dream Island, and would highly recommend the Konoha Maze to anyone who loves a challenge! If you are interested in visiting this Dream Island, the Dream Address is: DA-4052-7760-9555.

3. Pokémon: Kanto Region

“I want to be, the very best.”

As soon as you come into this Dream Island, you feel as though you’ve been transported right into the Kanto region and are a Pokémon trainer! The creator of this Dream Island left tools, a wet suit, a pitfall seed, and ten red sparklers for you to use throughout your visit. They also have some really awesome designs you can save! My personal favorite design they made was the “Team Rocket Grunt” outfit.

“A Wild Pikachu Has Appeared!”

The creator of this Dream Island went all out in simulating the world of Pokémon. They created several users that represent different people in Pokémon including Ash and Nurse Joy, they have several Pokémon hiding throughout the Dream Island, and they recreated several locations from the iconic game like Pokémon Tower and the Pokémon Center! One of the houses even hosts all of the battle scenes of the Elite Four! If you love Pokémon, you need to visit this Dream Island! The Dream Address for this Island is: DA- 4637-0987-4982.

2. The World of Harry Potter

If you love Harry Potter and are disappointed you never got your letter to Hogwarts, you NEED to visit this Dream Island. The creator of this Dream Island did such an amazing job recreating iconic locations and people from Harry Potter. What impressed me the most on this Dream Island was the amount of detail put into the various locations on the map! While visiting this Dream Island you can find several must-see locations including: Diagon Alley, Gringotts Bank, a Butterbeer Shop, Azkaban Prison, Hogwarts, and much more! Within Hogwarts itself, they also created many iconic rooms such as: The Great Hall, the student dorms, the Potions Classroom, Hagrid’s Hut, and more!

“Turn to page 394.”

Some of these locations can only be accessed through a secret passageway. So make sure you look everyone when visiting this Dream Island so you don’t miss anything (that includes houses)! Another reason I was impressed with this Dream Island was because the creator also made a ton of Harry Potter themed custom designs you can save! So now I have a Hufflepuff school uniform, just in case my letter to Hogwarts does come someday. If you want to check out this Dream Island, the Dream Address is: DA-6012-7480-2940.

1. Disneyland

“I’m walking right down the middle of Main Street U.S.A!”

I decided to leave the best for last, which is…Disneyland! I was planning on visiting Disneyland this year, but then corona shut that down quick. All the time my husband and I are saying to each other, “I miss Disneyland”. Well, when visiting this Dream Island, I almost felt like I was there! The creator of this Dream Island didn’t miss ANY major part of Disneyland. They did an AMAZING job recreating iconic things like Main Street and classic rides like the Haunted Mansion and the Mad Tea Party. This Dream Island took me at least an hour to explore. And when I went back a second time to show my husband how cool it was, we even found MORE stuff I missed before. This Dream Island is EXPANSIVE, and the creator of it didn’t leave a spot untouched. So make sure you explore every part of this Dream Island, including the houses!

And if you’re wishing you could buy some Disneyland merchandise right now, guess what, you can just download some of the custom designs the creator of this Dream Island left for you! I was able to download the design for a couple Disneyland sweaters and can now wear them whenever I want! What’s nice about downloading these designs is they cost me nothing in the game whereas in real life these sweaters would run my wallet dry. One thing that was really unique about this Dream Island was that the creator even made sure to set up the music so each area of the park was playing themed music! Honestly the music in Disneyland really sets the mood for your trip, so not having themed music would’ve meant the Dream Island wouldn’t be as magical.

If I were to pick out of all of these Dream Islands which one you need to go to, I would pick this one. It truly was an amazing experience and I know I will be going back to this Dream Island soon (especially while the real-life Disneyland is inaccessible to me). The Dream Address for this Dream Island is: DA-5064-2996-8566. (And just so you know, the name of this Island is Cookie.)

That’s it for this post! Thanks for reading! If you had to pick any of these Dream Islands to visit, which one would you go to? Are there any Dream Islands you like that I should go look at? Let me know in the comments below!
