Omnipod Bay FAQ
Animal Crossing™: New Horizons is a simulation game for Nintendo Switch™. It’s the latest game in the Animal Crossing™ franchise, which has been around for more than twenty years on various Nintendo consoles. As of late 2021, Animal Crossing™: New Horizons has sold more than 37M copies.
In Animal Crossing™: New Horizons, you’re the lucky owner of your very own private island. Your tasks are to decorate and improve the island, and to invite animal villagers to join you there. Online features allow players to visit each other’s islands by airplane (a multiplayer experience) or in a dream (a single player experience).
Omnipod Bay is an Animal Crossing™ island created by Insulet, the makers of Omnipod®. It’s an inclusive, family-friendly place that reflects the experiences of people with diabetes. This island was created using the same tools available to all Animal Crossing™ players, and it has been shared as a dream island for players to visit and explore.
No, Nintendo was not involved in the creation of Omnipod Bay in any way. The island was created using the game’s built-in tools, in accordance with Nintendo’s usage guidelines.
Insulet invited JDRF to be one of four advocacy partners with a presence on the island. (The other three are Beyond Type 1, Children with Diabetes, and Kyler Cares Foundation.) Our JDRF Game2Give team has worked closely with Insulet to spread the word about Omnipod Bay, including organizing a launch day livestream event that raised almost $15,000 for type 1 diabetes research.
You can visit the island by dreaming about it. For this to work, you need to have a Nintendo Switch Online account and to meet certain conditions in the game. Once dreaming is unlocked, lie down in your bed and select “Yeah, I want to sleep.”
Luna will ask how she can help you. Tell her you want to dream.
Enter the dream address DA-9645-5879-6910 or search by name for OmnipodBay (no space).

When you’ve found the entire code, use the download kiosk in your Able Sisters store and select Search by Creator ID. Enter the code, then use the right shoulder button to move to the Custom Designs tab. Now download your prize, and wear it proudly! Hint: Don’t have the Able Sisters store on your island yet? Make sure to buy things from Mabel the porcupine when she visits, so she and her sister will be compelled to set up shop.
Three 4-digit code snippets are hidden in three of the buildings on Omnipod Bay. Remember to move your camera around with the right thumb stick, so you can look from all angles. Check the bulletin board near where you first arrived for more clues.
When Omnipod Bay opened to visitors on February 17, 2022, members of the JDRF Game2Give community gathered on the island for a launch day party and fundraising event. You can watch it on JDRF’s Twitch channel.
A Nintendo Switch Online account is required to use the online components of Animal Crossing™: New Horizons. If you don’t have an account and you only want it so you can check out Omnipod Bay, there’s a one-month subscription for $3.99. Limited-time free trials are sometimes offered as well.
But first, make sure you’re ready to dream! Gameplay in Animal Crossing™: New Horizons takes place in real time, meaning one real day is also one in-game day. Some of the steps to unlock dreaming take multiple days.
