5 Useful Animal Crossing New Horizons Dream Island Tips

Here are five dream island tips from Youtuher Crossing Channel’s video which you can use to make sure players have the best time possible when visiting your island within a dream: 

  • 1. Leave some tools out near resident services, so that players can navigate your island easily. An island that is incredibly difficult to navigate won't be much fun for potential visitors, so be sure to help them out where you can. You can even leave a shovel if you want players to dig up some more hidden items around your dream island. Remember nothing they dig up will affect your actual island, so feel free to be as creative as you want. When it comes to hiding things and making your island interesting to navigate around. For a bonus effect consider wrapping up your tools in gift wrapping to make them even more inviting to potential visitors.

  • 2. If you've got some of cupcakes or maybe even some eggs, why not leave them around so players can pick them up and have a refreshing little treat once again. Even if they eat these in a dream, they won't actually be eating the item you've put down, so don't worry about losing it or going to waste in dreams cupcakes are unlimited. Once you get a hold of some of the cute new items like balloons and pinwheels, you could leave those around too so that visitors can have something fun to hold on to whilst exploring your dream island.

  • 3. If your island has a strong theme, it's always a good idea to leave an outfit out somewhere so that players can pick it up and dress up with it. For example, if you have a city theme maybe give the player a business suit to wear as their themed outfit whilst exploring your dream island. Dressing up in a dream is always a lot of fun so it's definitely something to do for your visitors. It's also important to dress up your character how you're dressed, when you save your dream island is how you will appear to visitors, so be sure to dress your best and show yourself off how you want people to see you.

  • 4. When you save your dream island with Luna, your island will be saved at whatever time you're playing in, so for example if you save at 12pm players who visit will always see your island at 12pm until you save it again at another time. You may want to consider this when saving so visitors can get the full effect of your island. For example cities may want to save at night and other people out there may want to save in the evening to have a beautiful sunset shown off. Ultimately it's up to you when you want to save your island just remember that when you save it is when people will get their impression of it. 

  • 5. Consider making a second player so that visitors can have two or more houses to visit on their trip to your dream island. It'll give them more to do and with a second home you can make some pretty cool and unique themes such as a resort hotel or something similar. A lot of the creepy dream towns from animal crossing new leaf utilize second characters really well, so you may want to do this just to have your island feel a bit bigger and a bit more creative. To do this, you can create a new profile on your switch and load up new horizons through that.
