It's okay...could be better.
I really only go to get berries and try to find a Pokémon I don't already have, which is getting difficult seeing as I don't seem to get sent anywhere but the Sparkling Sea anymore. The minigames, while fun at first, could stand to be improved - it gets really tedious having to play hide-and-seek and that sky race game, the candle blowing game is getting boring on the off-chance I get sent to the manor, and I hate having to waste a berry on that stupid ice cream scoop game. I rather like the Wailord game, but one out of five does not make for an enjoyable time. More minigames would be spectacular.
And some of the DW abilities rather suck. Plus on Mareep? Yeah, no.
On the flip side, some abilities are pretty good, so it depends, I guess.
It's okay...could be better.
It can be a fun way to spend an hour, but there should be more to do. Whilst the mini-games are alright at first, playing them over and over to obtain new Pokemon gets repetitive. (I love the new Candle Blowing game, though. I wish I could play that against other people) The lure of great DW abilities and berry growing keeps me coming back. It was thrilling when I found something good, like a female Slowpoke and Dratini.
Who is this git?
It's ok. But it would be improved if it had 1-on-1 battles with other players there.
It really screws over college students like me, who's campus wi-fi has a passcode that I don't know how to bypass on my DS.
I enjoy going there for the items and the Pokemon... But I also don't like the limit on Pokemon wishes... for some reason I have to sit through the tutorial every time I log on. I dislike that I can only play an hour a day. I think that if I'm willing to tuck in multiple Pokemon in a day that I should be allowed to spend more time there. I think if they're limiting the play time due to such a large demand for the DW that they should simply update their servers. It's not like it's impossible to add enough content/server speed to get that many people in. MMO's do it everyday and this is just a website flash.
It's cute... It's worth doing everyday to get items and new Pokemon... but it's really more of a chore than a fun experience.
It's great to connect with your Pokémon beyond the 3DS.
I really liked it. I hope they expand it in some way for X/Y, since I completed the National Pokedex in Pokemon Black, and have no reason to visit the Dream World now.

Way too restrictive. You only get an hour per day, and you don't even get that sometimes (they slap a 24 hour penalty on you for changing the clock or removing the game from your DS, which is just plain ridiculous). When you get there, they randomly send you to an area in the Island of Dreams (and yes, later on they did mention that your Pokemon's type can influence which area you go to, but that still doesn't completely help since you're only affecting the chances of going where you want to go). And the chances of getting DWfs are too low, you usually end up going through about 8 males before you get 1 female. There's just too low a chance of getting whatever it is you want, and the DW itself is too boring to be worth playing after you've gotten everything you want.
It's fun for the first week, then becomes too redundant. It's no wonder they put a one hour limit on there.
It's okay, but it definitely could be better. It's fun to play through some of the mini-games for awhile, but then it becomes really boring and tedious fairly quickly. If there were more mini-games to play through, then that would probably help it out a bit. It's also a shame that you can only choose to bring along one Pokemon and being able to go there once a day for an hour is disappointing too, although I can at least understand that restriction. There are some fun concepts here, but there needs to be some changes for me to get back into the Dream World for X/Y. I think I only played for a couple of weeks after I first got mine setup for B/W.
