is there any way, or will there be any way to actively choose which location I go to when I visit the island of dreams, sick of getting pleasant forest all the time, and the general randomness of it all
No,the place you want to go in the island of dreams is randomly selected.There are several different areas within the Dream Island, and they get unlocked as you collect Dream Points in the Dream World and new pokemon too can be unlocked.
