“Players can still continue to access some of the things they unlocked in Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise on their main island, including adding counters, partitions, and adding ambient lighting and soundscapes, even if they have Access to Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise has been suspended. However, it will not be possible to visit the archipelago if players lose access to the DLC. To be able to visit the archipelago and start designing vacation homes again, you will need to purchase the DLC separately or renew your Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership. “
Got it all? You will still be able to access new building opportunities and everything you unlock in Happy Home Paradise on your island, you simply cannot visit this special place after your Expansion Pack membership expires.
